I'm try to get the ros to communicate with an android app using a usb cable, so the computer and android app will talk to each other. I can only find examples of where wifi or bluetooth is used. I want to use the usb port. Wondering if anyone had any ideas on how to do this.

Depending on what version of android you're using, you can setup USB networking as "Internet pass-through" which will let you share your computer's network with the android device over USB. This will let you talk to a ROS nodes running on the android device like any other ROS node (or like you were using wifi).

Using android 4.4.4. I'll give this a try and see if it works.
