For those of you who have been wanting an android app for monitoring your controller, you now have one.

http://play.google.com/store/apps/detai ... ngel.phone

Check out the link above or the icon link in my signature.

If you are curious about what the app looks like and how it functions, I have created a Manual for it along with photos and hopefully a detailed description of every aspect of the app.
Android Status Manual

I continue to post updates and new features in this forum. I have a few ways for people to stay up on the "newest" features and test releases before they hit the play store for the standard users.

There is a Google Plus community created for this app. I created the community specifically to allow for a Beta channel of the app for people to test the new releases without always having to download and install from my server. It will also allow for further discussions (if needed).

https://plus.google.com/communities/106 ... 8650872090

I maintain an archive of ALL the releases of my android app. This archive is kept up for those who cannot use the Play store or are wanting to sideload an APK or needing to drop down to a previous release (for whatever reason). The archive location is:

http://curtbinder.info/apps/

Also, inside the archive are all the apps that I have created and released.

Feedback is always welcome.

are you able to see relay status? I don't have mine hooked up through wifi right now, but I keep debating switching back.

no. this initial release does not display relay status. i was more focused on getting the basis down and the app released. relay status will be added in along with the mode changes and memory settings too.

you are welcome. :D

more stuff will be added to the app so do not worry about functionality that is lacking currently. im already working on an update to improve connection handling and then hopefully on to the relay status and toggling. oh and cant forget about the memory reading and updating plus changing modes. 8-)

  • Improved XML parsing
  • Added more status text updates
  • Switched to use HttpURLConnection, allows for read and connect timeouts
  • Moved status strings to strings.xml
  • Added connect & read timeouts to host class
  • Added ability to enter in userid for web banner on reefangel.com
  • Added ability to choose to query controller directly or reefangel.com for values

nice update. I haven't switched to wifi yet, so I am using the reefangel.com values. I guess it can't pull DP and AP percents from the website.

I might play with putting wifi back in if you're going to work it such that we can modify from our phones. I've got it plugged in via USB to a stand alone computer running the client right now.

Is a widget coming?
