No, really, it's not! Wink | ;)

I need to program a remote switch via Bluetooth to a smart 'phone. Both ends are the easy bit. It's the hardware in the middle that's worrying me.

I need a really small, I mean a really, really small - smaller than a very small thing - bluetooth board, that can just talk to an android device and send h/w switch presses to it, nothing more. The user presses a h/w switch, and the 'phone logs it.

If I forgot everything I know about such boards, I would quite possible know more about them than I do now. Unsure | :~

There seems to be an HC-05 or 06 out there, but I have no idea if they would do the job. They are actually larger than I would like, anyway. Also, I guess I would need a BLE device.

Does the hive-mind of CP have any idea of what's worth looking at?

Pretty please? Smile | :)
