Can we follow? Android allows us to easily create an application that we need. It only takes a little good will and time to easier a job of millions of electronics engineers. It does not matter whether you use these applications, but the fact that we like to have them. So, can you let your colleagues to have more applications than you? Hmmm ... for us this is serious…for you? So let’s start.
We heard that there is a specialized hardware for Android called IOIO. So we spend some time to fount out more about IOIO. IOIO (pronounced YoYo) is an input/output board for Android phones and tablets. It allows you to attach electronic devices to your Android phone using the USB connection. If you have a IOIO with the latest firmware, you can also communicate over Bluetooth if you attach a Bluetooth adapter to the IOIO. General conclusion is that IOIO consists of firmware for Microchip PIC24F microcontroller and libraries for Android.
We are witnessing the growing influence of the Android operating system. The intensity of the growth of mobile devices with the Android OS is growing exponentially. Android has a large community of developers writing applications ("apps") that extend the functionality of the devices. Developers write primarily in a customized version of Java. Apps can be downloaded from third-party sites or through online stores such as Android Market, the app store run by Google. As of October 2011 there were more than 400,000 apps available for Android, and the estimated number of applications downloaded from the Android Market as of December 2011 exceeded 10 billion. So, in that amount of applications, engineers can find many useful things that can help us at any time. Since our fields of interest include microcontrollers and electronics in general, we recommend the following applications.
