The Force is with you young Spherowalker

(Inhale).......... (Exhale)..... But you are not a Jedi yet.
The truth is, in a serious note, nobody is a Jedi so now that that’s out of the way....
This is a truly remarkable app to connect to the best remote control robots in the galaxy far far away.... oh and here too.
I have no complaints, just thrilled at these pieces of hi tech little droids.
A suggestion, I have. You should try making c3p0 and even a droideka that would be awesome. Another color for another r2 unit is red like the r4 in the prequels that Obi-Wan had on his ship, these suggestions would make me say and I quote, “Hello there!.” But you guys are just wonderful with what y’all have put out Star Wars related so far. This is fantastic what y’all have done to this day. Highly recommend these droids!

The old app is better DO NOT GET RID OF IT.

The reaction times from this app vs the old one are ridiculous, I press the buttons make BB-8 say yes and no, I hear the sound, but he doesn’t move his head until less than a second passes by, he should move it as soon as I press the button and say his phrase at the same time. I also prefer the look and interface of the original app, it was brighter, more inviting, it had more of a hardware feel, and I liked BB-8’s hologram for turning his head. I like being able to drive him with my left thumb and turn his head with my right. I don’t want to have the driving mode only available with the phrases, I want it to be with the head turning mode as well. I also prefer the driving sound effects on the old app, even if they’re not quite as accurate. The only thing this app does better, is slowing down the head turning, the old app moved it too fast and it could mess up the motor. Please change this app to be more similar to the original, because eventually I’m not gonna be able to download the old app onto newer devices. Why am I even saying this? I know you’re not going to change it.

I love it so much but there’s a problem

So I love the droid and at first it was working just fine and now it’s not connecting right and I’m not saying this is a bad droid but the droid that I got which is the BB9-E won’t connect and I pressed the troubleshoot button and it lead me to the website and I went on the I need help with and typed connection and it showed something that I wanted and then I followed the rules of it but it didn’t really work, And I noticed that once or twice it worked this year but now it doesn’t work AT ALL But I really like the droid!
