Happy to find that the XBee Explorer Dongle works with my rooted Nexus 7 tablet running the Apps: USB OTG Helper and Usb Terminal. I used two XBEE S1 modules with default settings - one in the Explorer connected to the N7 by an OTG cable and the second connected to my PC running X-CTU (Terminal tab). Both terminals send and receive text from each other.

During the last two weeks, I have been successful getting the LCD Controller v. 1.1 App (http://www.androidzoom.com/android_applications/tools/lcd-controller_cfpjl.html)
for a 16x2 LCD working on my new Nexus 7 using this IOIO board. The board uses an external power supply, 10 wire connections to the LCD and a Bluetooth dongle (Sabrent ) to receive input from the N7. After installing the App on the N7 and turning on its Bluetooth with pairing set for all nearby devices, the powered up IOIO board was found and paired as IOIO(A3:10). Now, the app connects immediately with the board and it is cool to see all the functions - INITIAL, SET AND CLEAR - work when sent from the unattached N7. The App uses the newest IOIO library which allows it to work WITHOUT turning on Developer options or USB debugging.
Android applications like this should encourage purchase of IOIO boards, especially for those people who are satisfied with installing compiled Apps (.apk files). For wider appeal, IOIO boards need to be supported by a reliable and detailed software development environment. This would include Java, Eclipse, Android SDK, ADT Plugin and IOIO libraries, each with the versions and setup parameters chosen for consistency.
