Is there a way to communicate between arduino device and the android device through the bluetooth?

I know it is and for that is used some pfodApp, but what if I want to make my own application, without a need of standalone pfodApp. Do you know if there is anything like pfod library for Java/Android? Which would allow me to pair and communicate with the arduino?

Check this: pfodApp

The only thing that pdof does is a set of standard protocols of communication in a neat package. Depending on the complexity of your project, creating your own serial message might be easier or quicker.
