Updated MobBob app is on Google Play

The updated MobBob app is now on Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.cevinius.MobBob

This version includes the new Bluetooth connection features seen in the video posted yesterday. The main new feature is that the app can now connect to paired devices using regular Bluetooth. This should enable the app to work with most Bluetooth modules.

It can still use Bluetooth LE to connect to DFRobot’s Bluno board, and I’ve also added experimental support for using Bluetooth LE to connect to HM-10 boards. The HM-10 support is very experimental, so it may not work!

As the changes were quite big, I have been paranoid about breaking the app for existing users. To try to address this, I’ve been testing as much as possible using my various MobBob and BoB builds.

However, I may not have caught everything!! If you have any issues with the updated app, please leave a comment here to let me know!

I’ll try to jump onto it as soon as I can!

Also, in order to support external Bluetooth modules, I’ve updated the Arduino code on Github. There is now a separate version there for use with external Bluetooth modules. In that version, I assume that the Bluetooth board is connected to 2 digital pins that we set up as a software serial port.
