Developing for iPhone serial communications

[Hcgilje] threw together a tutorial on using serial communications in iPhone applications. It builds upon the DevDot tutorial which was posted back in 2007. A lot has changed since then; the firmware has come a long way and there are several development tools that now make things a bit easier for you. His examples use Interface Builder and openFrameworks to demonstrate GUI control of an LED and a servo motor. Now go out and design your own peripherals for this popular handset.

  1. I will have to carefully read it later, have you had any luck with xgps and a normal GPS device? I wanted a DIY gps to use with an Appstore gps program but never got xgps to recognize the serial device. I gave up but always wondered if it will work on firmware 3+

  2. Read the article. He uses an Arduino with an Xbee. I apologize for not reading it first. You can disregard both of these comments. I just need to do some iPod / Arduino serial communication learning.
