Connecting arduino to an app to display data? Answered

I am completely new to arduino, so im sorry if I seem quite uninformed, I have completed a few tutorials but need to create a project around connecting to an app. I am using an arduino uno at the moment.
Something I haven't found much or any advice or tutorials on on is connecting the to an app to send information.
I want to use a Soil Hygrometer, Humidity, Temperature and Humidity Sensor and a light sensor (Most important one being the soil Hygrometer) . I want to be able to send the information received from these sensors out so the information can be displayed on an app, using bluetooth or wifi.
I want to know how this could be done? Such as the software for the app and what way I would I do to connect It?

Thank you for any help

You should be able to do this for free and relatively easily. The one time I did a app/bluetooth I used the MIT App Inventor which is a free app builder for Android that uses a building blocks style that's easier for beginners to pick up.

Check out how I used it HERE.

If you're on Apple then you'll have to full on develop your own app from scratch or use wifi and a browser based solution.

If making an app doesn't work for you then, at least on Android there are several options, Like ArduinoCommander for reading inputs off of your arduino's bluetooth.

The usual way is program the app yourself.
There is not much available that I know would do the job, especially not for free.
Most people don't really bother too much and simply use a transmitter or wifi and another Arduino with a display.
