It's so amazing

I love this app.

Impressive app

This is the first app I paid more than $2.99 for and I'm very happy with it. It has a lot of features in a small package. I use it more than I use the Legacy remote. I often use it with the LCS app on 2 different apple products. It was a good design idea to have different features on the 2 apps.

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.
