Wirelessly Accessible Pi in 5 Minutes

Introduction: Wirelessly Accessible Pi in 5 Minutes

Hi everyone! Pi here! Today's Intructable is on how to make a raspberry Pi wirelessly accessible from a phone or tablet
However, this is a part of my 5MinuteBuild series, so I'm doing it fast.
Please note that my estimate of 5 minutes is for a person with some computer knowledge, and certainly can take longer.
Enough of that stuff, let's get to it!
*special note* Today's Intructable is for a contest, if you could vote that would mean the world to me.
