If the phone includes a web browser, why not use that? There is no need to develop an app for the phone.
I agree, in a lot of ways, with that statement. Hell, I wouldn't even care in the least, if this was just my project, and just log in with my computer whenever I needed to change parameters. But, it's a class project. A mobile app is part of the needfulls.
What is your problem? All I did was ask for more information.
Acknowledging I appreciate you answering, my first post, was to everyone I asked, sufficient and to the point; I need to be able to change parameters in a 'Smart Terrarium'. And I need to be able to do so via an app. I, in my first post, deliberately left out any sort of musing about what means and methods could be used to achieve those ends (I already think that building a web server on the arduino, adding the attendant connectivity shield, and then building an app that can interface is probably the answer I am looking for.) so that I could hear a variety ideas.
The first response set the tone, and it didn't seem to change. You claimed I didn't ask a question. To say that I didn't ask a question is a very narrow response. We are not computers, we can interpret 'ambiguous' communication to understand what is wanted, without difficulty. My needs are the question.
Then i get it implied that I implying some way to connect to the internet. Actually, I left the question vague so we could discuss the options. Cuz, I DON'T know what to do. I am asking for help. I want to know, how do I build a system that will allow me to change the parameters of a 'Smart Terrarium', when I change plants. A web server is a good middle point, and just getting there, will be a great start.
Please, if you want to help, stick around. But to-date, I feel like I am just being made fun of by the 'in' kids.
