The LEGO Mindstorms NXT supports Bluetooth communication between a program running on the NXT, and a program running on some other Bluetooth device. A common setup is a connection between two NXT bricks, one is as remote controller and the other one is as slave.
With an Android phone and the NXT Pad app, you don't need another NXT brick as a remote controller to connect with the slave NXT brick. Once Bluetooth connected, the NXT Pad can send single number 1-9 as message to the slave NXT.
On the other hand, the slave NXT is programmed for different actions according to the value received from Bluetooth mailbox. To see a NXT-G programming example working with NXT Pad, please look to the 4th captured screen.
In addition, NXT Pad is able to control the NXT motors directly without any program.

This app has gone under some major updates.
This app allows an Android device to communicate with LEGO NXT device. You can send messages to a specified mailbox on the device. These messages can then be used by the device in a running program.
You can now also send a select number of direct commands to the device. Such as:
Get Running Program Name
Get Battery Level (The number of Volts left)
Start a program by the name ( program.rxe )
Stop the running program
And a few more...
There is a new feature that is still in beta.
The app can now by used as a remote control to drive the device (no installed program on the device needed).
Using the on screen circle, you can direct the device's driving action. The distance from the center is the amount of power that will be applied to the motors. The distance on the x-axis is how hard the turn will be. If you place the motors on the device backwords on the device, there is a flip button to make the driving direction correct.
There are some more features in the works that we hope to bring to you soon.
Please email us or leave feedback to help us make improvements.
Use this app to move your NXT robot. Make sure you check the motors! Turn on your bluetooth both on your device and on your NXT robot. Thanks for downloading our app and make sure you like us on facebook for more news! ( Dont forget to have FUN!!!)

The app programs the robot, so it automatically stops if it detects an obstacle. NXT REMOTE CONTROL PRO uses the Bluetooth capabilities of the phone to communicate with the robot.
LEGO MINDSTORMS robots are fun to play with, but they are also educational. After-school programs use robots to teach elementary and middle-school children problem-solving skills and introduce them to engineering and computer programming.
