Android and iOS smartphone app using Xamarin Forms RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    This is my first attempt at creating an app for Android/iOS smartphones.  Here's our scenario:

    We wrote an app for a device that reads CO2 data from a sensor.  The device can plug into a desktop or a laptop and then read the data from the sensor.  The app connects to the sensor via a serial port.

    But now, we want to convert this app to plug into a smartphone instead of a laptop/pc.  My question is, how will the smartphone read off data from the sensor?  Is there a "serial port" in smartphones?  I would like to eventually have the device send data via wi-fi or Bluetooth .  But for now, it's using USB cable.

    This maybe a dumb question.  Appreciate any insight from anyone who has experience developing apps for smartphones.

  • I think this is in a wrong forum.  I'll ask this in XAMARIN forum.
