DevDuino WiFi App has been designed with MIT App Inventor.
Feel free to open the DevDuino Wi-FI App Inventor project and learn from it how the App and the communication with the DevDuino work.
Note: if you still want to access to your DevDuino through a different Wi-Fi network or even from 3G or 4G networks so you can interact with it even across the world, then you have to forward your PORT on your router. This process is very simple but depends of your internet access provider, you should easily find tutorial on google. Search for “your internet access provider” and port forwarding.
