Within the Arduino IDE Serial.* output can be viewed with Tools / Serial Monitor. How can I view Serial.* output on an Android? As a concrete example, how can I view the output from Examples / Communication / ASCIITable?

This of course depends on the specific Arduino model generation or USB serial cable utilized. – Chris Stratton Aug 19 '14 at 19:48

These steps will allow your Android device to function as an Arduino Terminal.

  • Download a Serial Terminal app. I'm using Android Hyperterminal, English version.
  • Attach an OTG ("On The Go") cable to your Android device.
  • Attach your Arduino to the OTG using your regular USB cable.
  • Make sure the terminal program is set to the same baud rate as your sketch.
  • Run the terminal App and select the USB port.
