Once you've connected to R2-D2 using the Star Wars Droids App, you will enter into Aim mode. Drag to rotate the 3D model of R2-D2 that you see on the screen -- your R2-D2 Droid will rotate simultaneously while you do this. Rotate him until he faces away from you. Once he is completely facing away, stop rotating the on-screen R2-D2 and tap the Drive icon. When you move the joystick, R2-D2 should drive in the direction you want him to go. 

If ever you need to aim him again, just tap the Aim icon and repeat the above.

Follow the link for more details on how to drive R2-D2.
