Old Muley's Review of Withrottle

Reviewed on 9/18/19 2:05 PM

Wow! All I can say is that I've been waiting a long time for someone to finally bring an app like this to life! While my current throttle (DT400) keeps me tethered to the layout, this app allows me to roam freely and follow my trains. The $10.00 they want for this app is a far cry from what it would cost to install a Digitrax UR92 radio receiver ($160) and the cheap UTR4 radio utility throttle ($129). My iPod Touch is probably going to be my go-to throttle from now on. Heck, between this and Decoder Pro (which is required, but free), my Digitrax throttle may soon become irrelevant. I look forward to future advances and updates to add even more capabilities.

Good but could be better

A bit expensive for relatively few extra features. One draw back is that only a slide throttle is available, no SS control, which could easily be achieved.

Very Good

For what it does, it does it very well. Just follow the instructions and it worked. I'd like to see turnout controls, a way to juggle two locos on one screen and the ability to make and break consists. If it gets that, then it gets 5 stars.

Finally set-up the JMRI solution on an old laptop to run with an MRC system. Easier to do then I expected. Then I downloaded this app and it works better with the JMRI server than my MRC system does. I am no longer using the MRC handhelds. I do wish the volume buttons could adjust the speed up and down in 1 unit increments though!

It's great! One suggestion for the next revision...

If you have a DCC layout, do yourself a huge favor and get familiar with JMRI then GET THIS APP! It's really a great addition to the railroad. My only suggestion for improvement, is to allow screen rotation. My switch panel is drawn in landscape, and it's akward to rotate the ipad from portrait (throttle mode) to land scape (web server mode) to manipulate switches. Keep up the great work!

Nice App I like controlling my trains with it. I hope they make an iPad version. With the screen size of the iPad a lot could be added. Thanks

Used to work great

WiThrottle (and Lite) will go nuts if you have network set to autodetect. Temporarily disabling wifi and then setting WiThrottle to manually enter network settings will work as a work around. Otherwise, still a great throttle program in need of some attention (updates).

The perfect wireless throttle!

Slug1965's Review of Withrottle

Reviewed on 9/18/19 2:05 PM

Our older Digitrax system was due for new throttles, and setting up jmri and using iPods and smart phones was considerably cheaper! Turnout control is a totally awesome feature and everything works great together! It brought new life to this old railroad! Definitely a must have!

The perfect wireless throttle!
