Arduino, NeoPixels, Firmata, and a Windows Phone (picked one up for $30 bucks) to control lighting.
Project in progress by Phil Hoffman
You will need to grab the source off GitHub and compile it using Visual Studio. Also you will need to put your phone in developer mode (or sideload the compiled appx).
Unfortunately my 640 took a dip in the lake a few years back, so I won't be of much help otherwise. Good luck!
I used an HC05 Bluetooth module off Amazon, but in general any Bluetooth module that uses rfcomm should work. I used a cheap USB power pack from radio shack (circular, about the size of a battery cell and maybe ~2000mAh). Any off the shelf unit will work. On the Arduino I think there is an unregulated output off the USB, use that to power the LED strips.
Yes it should be fairly easy to port. One would be to use Xamarin and change the UI code. The other is port it to Java, using the Firmata lib for the protocol going across the bluetooth connection. See https://github.com/firmata/protocol/blob/master/README.md
