Would an Iphone remote control for the THUMPONATOR be a worthwhile addition?

In my opinion yes so that more than one person can control it.

I fish with a partner and while a THUMPONATOR might be physically located near one person the capability of a second person being able to also control it would make it worthwhile in my opinion.

Once you have the THUMPONATOR with phone remote working let me know and I will be your first customer.

Only question. You mention iPhone but from what I saw on your video it should work with almost any phone.

I have one of your 'Thumpers' and for just me and my wife in the boat I dont see a need for a Iphone remote...
but if I was a guide, and had 2-3 customers, or if I had my grandkids fishing with me I'm sure a remote would
be a great addition. Nice work !! jim

Its a WIFI connection. (Bluetooth would require and app, while with WIFI i can use the builtin web browsers.)

@RBDavis3591
Eventually it will work with any smartphone since the THUMPONATOR is basically acting as a WebServer sending dynamic content.
What im finding out, is that IOS and Android handle wifi connections differently, and even each IOS version has had its own nuances.
Next comes Android, and then a way to update the code when needed from a PC connected to the THUMPONATOR over WiFi

Thanks for the information. My partner has an iPhone and I have an Android so we are covered either way. Let me know when you start selling this version so I can order one.
