Case Study #2 – Android-Based Fishing App for Mobile Devices

This project was sponsored by a smart fishing sensor company in the US. They had us develop the prototype for an Android-based app which communicated using Bluetooth with a smart fishing lure which could report back temperature and depth information. The resulting data was charted with respect to time on the mobile device.
