    Would be interested to see your arduino code for sending and displaying temp data.

    finally a great looking front end for android. I've been waiting for something like that for ages, finally have hope of finally replace my win8 + centrafuse setup.
    Great work!

    The Arduino code is super simple. All it does is read data like you normally would, then spit it out over serial in a structured way. Example
    Code:
    Serial << "^," << INSIDETEMPERATURE << "," << insideTemp << ",|" << endl;
    So a parsed output would look like this
    Code:
     Serial << "^,170,25,|" << endl;
    The Android would receive
    Code:
    ^,170,25,|
    then break it apart and updates the UI.
    In that example, "INSIDETEMPERATURE" is a constant int that both Android and Arduino have, and "insideTemp" is the sensor value.

    I know the << isn't normal Arduino stuff, it's part of the streaming library
