Android Meets Arduino
The Blynk control framework
Gadgets you can control from your smartphone are all the rage, and you can even go wireless with WLAN-capable boards such as the Arduino Yún. But to develop such a project you need to be familiar both with the microcontroller board’s network stack and with smartphone programming. Blynk makes the whole thing easier by encapsulating the communication code at both ends; and on the smartphone side you don’t need to write any code at all.
