Needs Update

Could use an updated user interface and attention to resolving bugs which have been reported to developer.

App has not been updated in 5 years

The above say it all, if you are really serious about the app then get a real devsecops process in place and update regularly and make it really useful otherwise everyone will go to something else like maybe using JMRI or the DCS side instead. I bought lots of Lionel stuff as a new hobbyist and ordered the new base3 but here it is a year later and nothing and by the sound of it is not going to be released until end of summer if you look at preorder times at the moment. By the time it comes out it will be close to two years for a preorder!!

Cab2 Remote On Your Phone!

This app is really cool. It gives all the control you get out of a normal cab 2 remote. Its great for people who want more remotes. My only problem is it price. I'm a teenager and 50 dollars is a lot. If I didn't love trains my money would have probably gone to video games. Lionel should try hard if they want to get younger people into the hobby.
