Simple Android Robot Remote Control
If you are interested in a simple tool to develop simple applications for your Android phone or tablet, check out App Inventor (http://www.appinventorbeta.com). This allows you to "draw" your interface and the develop your program using a simple block programming language.
We whipped up a simple bluetooth remote control for a small Arduino controlled robot.
The remote control application will allow you to connect to a device paired to your phone then send some basic robot control commands. It will also display the response from the robot.
The basic commands are:
forward = 'f'
left = 'l'
right = 'r'
Here is a screen shot of the user interface:

The robot used to test the remote control was based on the Tracked Arduino Bundle and a BlueSmirf Bluetooth modem:
