Cell phone apps for microprocessor control.  Something like RemoteXY

I really like the RemoteXY idea, brilliant suggestion!

Consider it approved. I'll leave the topic open, so others can comment.

@dronebot-workshop I am intrigued, but I hear all the time how hard it is to get Apple apps approved. If the answer is you have no plan to do an Apple app, then it might make sense to see what % of your audience that would exclude. Or maybe I am reading too much into this, maybe it's just a web based interface which works everywhere.

@zander You don't need to get an app approved or on the App Store Ron.  You might want to check out the RemoteXY website to see how it actually works.

@dronebot-workshop I got it installed, but so far don't see how to use it. Are you saying this app allows us to create something that we can control via our Apple or Android phone without having to get approvals? That would be great, when are you doing a video?

@zander Essentially you modify their app. You can add up to 5 controls without licensing or restrictions. If you want more elements, then you can buy a Pro license.

The important concept here is that the GUI is embedded in the Arduino sketch, not in the app. So no need to bother anyone at the App store!

@dronebot-workshop I am having a hard time wrapping my head around that, so I wil wait for the video.

@zander  @dronebot-workshop

About 10 years ago I used apple swift to write a program to run on my iPhone, developed on my Mac. I ran ok for a week.  It then transpired that if I wanted it to run past a week, even though it was for private use and not destined for the App Store, I had to have an apple developer licence.

I don’t know if this is still the case, but if the app, or program, is destined for iPhone use then it would be worth checking the current status.
