Hy guys its me gulshan and i am going to show you how to control arduino with smartphone , so let's get started

PLEASE GIVE YOUR VOTE THIS INSTRUCTABLE SELECTED FOR ARDUINO CONTEST
PLEASE GIVE YOUR VOTE IF YOU LIKE THIS

Step 1: What Will You Need

You will need an arduino (of course) a cable, an led for testing, and an OTG cable or converter

Step 2: Downloading!

You have to download an app called arduino Droid from play store ( i will show you how it's work in detail in next instructables)

Step 3: Connect It!

Connect the arduino with cable
Usb to to OTG
and otg to mobile and voila!

Step 4: Open Up


After connecting arduino with smartphone

You have to open arduino Droid app click on three dots
Click on settings select board
Select the board

Step 5: Coding

Write your code or select any example
Click on dots
Click on example
Click on basic
Click on blink
And there you have it your so called blink code

Step 6: Led Testing

You can test the led by blink example
I edited the code because i used pin 12 besides of 13( it is the default pin in example)

Step 7: Troubleshooting

Before compiling the code (if you edited it) you have to save it
Then can click on upload
If app shows error in compiling or uploading then click the compiler or upload button again

Step 8: After Party With Arduino

As we know arduino is the device full of possibilities
If someone ask me to what can be built with arduino? I simply say....... What you want to make?

    I like it. What I'm trying to do is
    1) store 9 photos in my phone
    2) have an Arduino do some calculations,
    3) send about 24 characters to the phone (results of the calculations), and
    4) have the Arduino select one of the nine photos and have the Android display it, along with the text, which would print on the white space that is reserved on all 9 of the stored pictures.
    The final image would look like the attached. Note that one of the nine pictures would be the airplane, bar, and pointer -- whichever one the Arduino chooses; then the text data would be added (as seen in the picture with the pointer in the middle).
    Is there an instruction that can show me how to do this? If not, do you want to do it?

    Perfect!
    I have a Geocache deep in the Woods which works with an Arduino and i have to modify the sketch. Now i have to walk just once the 5 km to the Geocache instead of twice. ;-)

    That's really cool. I don't think I'd want to write a lot of code on my phone, but I'm always having to tweak stuff and holding the laptop near the robot after it's all installed is always a pain. Good find!
