I thought that you may find this interesting - Bluetooth connected Arduino robot - Student project.
This one uses the Arduino Uno R3 board and the Ardafruit Motorshield with the Freetronics Bluetooth shield, but we are working on another one which uses the Freetronics Eleven with the Freetronics Dual HBridge shield https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=abo6qfq2r4U

The Android app 'BlueTooth Controller' works a treat https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... s.BT&hl=en

Here is the code for the setup for the Freetronics Motorshield for anyone interested https://github.com/Seven7au/Freetronics_Bluetooth_Robot
It took me ages to work out why this wasn't working until I realised that the default RX and TX pins on this Freetronics shield are pins 2 and 3:
SoftwareSerial bt(2,3); // RX, TX
And the default motor pins on the Freetronics Dual H Bridge shield are also pins 2 and 3:
int motorb1 = 3;
int motorb2 = 2;
A 'rookie mistake' that I should have checked first.

What stops this working with other platforms like iOS, if at all?

DaveMark,

Unfortunately iOS only allows Bluetooth Low Energy devices to be connected, unless they are devices approved by Apple. The BTSH is a traditional "Bluetooth Classic" device, not Bluetooth Low Energy.
