Is it possible to make communication between Olimexino 85 with Android OS using USB cable? I am looking for very simple solution. Something like processing in Pinguino 4550. Serial via USB?

It seems to be Arduino-related so if you can run the right version on your Android....

Hi JohnS,
Thank you for your help.
I found some ready APKs in the Google Play Store and also matching script for the Arduino Uno ( 100% what I want, except it is for the Arduino Uno): https://gist.github.com/eeaslan/5e5373b4710bbc34e03c
My problem is that most likely if I stick the above code in olimexino-85 it will not work. I don't have enough knowledge for Attiny85 in order to make sure I will not burn it. What I need is some advise how to modify the script in order to match to the Olimexno-85 hardware.
Thanks

May be of help to the community. However this is in Windows.

Could well be worth your time to buy a board that is supported in the environment / OS you prefer or better yet change to a more suitable OS.

Android is not the easiest to use this way since it is a fairly closed system with security etc constraints that will get in the way if you're a beginner.  Linux is much easier.
