Arduino + Wifi Shield + Android

Has anyone been able to create an android application that can send information to an arduino using the wifishield and the android phone as a mobile hotspot?
If so would you mind sharing how you did it or any ideas on how to do it?
I am fairly new to networking and android programming and am struggling to find a place to start

Hey man,

Yeah I did this using the official Arduino WiFi Shield and the UNO R3. Put my phone as a hotspot using the security WPA2/PSK and connected to it from my Arduino. After that I downloaded the demo app: UDPTester to test it. And it works :slight_smile:

Good luck!
