Hey, I'm writing this review due to a recent problem I've encountered with this app. All the features are great and extremely useful except for the dimmer. It seems that the dimmer sends out the integers continuously without anything to mark the end of the integer. This causes serial reads or serial parse ints to go wham in arduino. As of this point you can only use the dimmer by pressing on a section of it so that it sends only one whole integer. The dimmer cannot be used as some sort of slider that imitates a potentiometer. It would be helpful if you guys worked this out by putting some end marker for every integer the slider sends out. Overall, still the best app for bluetooth control on arduino.

This is a clean, intuitive app with a slick interface and some nice additional features (haptic feedback on the controller). However I have struggled with correctly interfacing the 'dimmer' with my Uno. It's evident that ASCII characters in the range 0-255 are transmitted serially and I can read these individually or as a long string from the serial buffer. However there is no (apparent) character for terminating a string. This results in not being able to cleanly read the incoming values without some unsatisfactory workaround. Some documentation or pointers on how the dimmer is to be read correctly would improve this app.
