    Do you mean a thermometer (used to detect temperature) or a thermostat (control room temperature)?

    1. If there's no internal probe in the Android device for temperature detection, you can't have a thermometer app
    2. Unless one can hook up a heating/cooling system with an Android phone, a thermostat app might not be possible

    I was looking for a thermostat that can be controlled via an app.

    I use Intermatic Z-wave thermostats (CA8900) with a Vera 2 controller for this. HomeBuddy and AutoHTN apps on the phone control all the Z-wave devices.

    Thanks for the replies, much appreciated. I just bought a 3M-50 Filtrete from Home Depot and installed it. It can be controlled via the web and an Android App is forthcoming(I have the beta android app). So far, so good!:D

    Here is my thermostat control via DroidX. However, it is part of my total automation system CQC. Probably a little out of the price range you are looking for. ;)
