DroidTerm 6.5 now supports for Arduino clones using CH340/CH341 chipsets

Last information about the current state of DroidTerm. Please check it out

As title says, I’ve managed to add support in DroidTerm and UsbSerial for those cheap Arduino clones which use the Ch34x family usb to serial chipsets (thanks Paul for providing me with one).

Besides of that. I fixed two bugs:
– A bug that appeared when a CDC device connection was disconnected and reconnected without unplugging.
– Now DroidTerm keeps logging data (if a profile was created) when the screen is turned off.

I hope DroidTerm is still useful for you guys and I hope I could start to add some new features soon.

Farewell!

DroidTerm v6.2 USB Serial port for Android

Last information about the current state of DroidTerm. Please check it out

I start this new year with a new DroidTerm update. Every month this little utility is getting more and more useful and reliable. Today I am going to present two new features I added some weeks ago but I didn’t document anywhere.

-Profile logs
Since v5.0 DroidTerm allows to create connection profiles avoiding annoying configuration setup each time you connect your devices.

DroidTerm v6.2 creates a log file each time a connection profile is created and that file is updated (opened, written and closed, so synchronization with cloud services like Dropbox is possible) every time something is received. It is still possible to save logs the same way, even if you are working within a connection profile.

Keyboard input options
DroidTerm v6.2 has an option to change the way it sends an end of line. There are three options

New year proposals
Like loosing weight and giving up smoking, I am thinking about a couple of major improvements I should do as a new year proposal. One of them is a kind of scripting language(and a graphic interface to code easily from the device) and the other is adding support to emulate ANSI escape codes (VT100). Just proposals 🙂

DroidTerm v5.0 USB Serial port for Android

Last information about the current state of DroidTerm. Please check it out

I have released a new version of DroidTerm. It fixes some bugs and I consider it fairly stable right now but besides typical bug fixing I added a new feature some of you considered a nice one and I really agree with you. Now It is possible to save connection profiles in order to allow a faster start. The process is pretty simple.

Start DroidTerm as usually, select your settings and connect. Now in terminal screen click on Preferences button:

Click on “Save Profile”, Give it a fancy name and save it. Your profile will be stored with your current connection settings and It will available next time.

This dialog will appear if you try to connect a new device and You have at least one stored profile for that device (profiles are associated with a pair of numbers called VID and PID which identify a given device).

I am open to any suggestions regarding DroidTerm. So let me know if you have some good ideas 🙂

DroidTerm v4.0 USB Serial port for Android

Some weeks ago I uploaded a new version of DroidTerm with some improvements. One of these improvements was a log system to save your session. Well I made some changes that allow view your logs inside your app. Press “Log Viewer” and choose your log.

I added a new way to send data. In prior versions users had to click on terminal and send one character at a time. This way is not gone but now it is possible to send more data at a time.
Just connect your device, start your session with your settings, press option button and select “Send bulk data”

DroidTerm is getting more complete each month and I almost lack of missing features. If you are using it and you have a good idea I would love to hear it 🙂

Happy crafting!

DroidTerm v2.0

Last information about the current state of DroidTerm. Please check it out

A month ago I released an Android app called DroidTerm to fulfill my needs of a simple serial terminal application. It worked pretty well but I started to want more features.
So I just released a new version of DroidTerm with a feature I really missed a lot. An Usb viewer to read Usb parameters in a meaningful way. Let me show you an example:

usbviewer1

In order to get a meaningful representation of vendor and product data DroidTerm fetches data from The USB ID Repository

I fixed some bugs too. So DroidTerm should be working better now If you have some problems using it just post a comment or email me.

Happy craft!
