The Bluetooth pfodAppTM
uses serial Bluetooth connections.
pfodAppTM for Android allows you to control micro-controllers, like Arduino, via bluetooth, from your Android phone. No Android programming required.
For testing purposes it is convenient to make serial Bluetooth connections between you mobile phone and a terminal session on your PC. Follow the links below to make and remove serial Bluetooth connections between your mobile phone and your Windows 7 Windows XP, Mac or Linux computer.
You can then test out how the micro-pages will look on pfodApp. Set up a bluetooth serial connection as described here and type the pfod micro-pages into the terminal window and see how pfodApp displays them. This also lets you see what messages the pfodApp will return for various user inputs.
