Any Android device is easiest. I hooked my aging Nexus One up in no time at all. Torque is a decent free app which can pull code; it worked well so I paid $5 for the full version.

Maybe there is an iPhone app.. very few technical people I know these days has an iPhone so I didn't research. In theory any Bluetooth device can work and there is likely PC software available.

You can get an ELM 237 device for less money but this one works first time for virtually everyone. Unbelievable bargain for what we get.
