Advice on app builders and sensors

By Omerin ·
Hey guys!
want to make a mobile tool that receives input from an arduino sensor via Bluetooth and generates a sound accordingly.
Nothing complicated, just a simple pressure sensor to be responded by a short sound, but the response time must be very fast to none (is it far fetched on a budget?)
I have limited coding skills and zero app building skills so I thought of using an open source app builder of some sort.
Any recommendations on the tools to use and overall advice would be highly appreciated! Thanks in advance.

Bad idea. Here's why.

Let's read https://stackoverflow.com/questions/22441638/the-response-time-to-a-bluetooth-connection-between-arduino-and-android-is-propo and see that the lag/delay is variable plus far from zero.

Now that you said Bluetooth this also means it's at most 33 feet so this means we can have a much simpler solution.

Which is: Put a speaker on the Arduino. It looks to be well done as I read this tutorial -> https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-wave-shield-audio-shield-for-arduino
