Push Button Trigger for a Cellphone App

Hi guys, I'm looking for choices on a push button as a trigger for an app. My problem is how would the the button communicate with the app? The range isn't that much, just about a few dozen meters or so. Any ideas?

    any push button would work really, just depends on what you need it for. . . the real problem I would say, as you stated, is how to integrate it to the app?  You could try a hardwire connection via iPhone/Android/whatever's port; or you could try connecting it via wifi or bluetooth. If you have a touchscreen phone, you could write your app to detect a touch and have the screen behave as the pushbutton. . . just a cheap suggestion. . .
