Ratings and Reviews
Great App, Needs to rotate with iPad
This app works great controlling the droid. A couple problems though:
1. Biggest issue. No rotation support. The app only orients one way and, with the Smart Keyboard attached to the iPad, that way is upside down!!! Please add rotation support so the app orients to the screen. Landscape only is fine, but at least flip based on which side is “down.”
2. Multi-app registration. I’d love to be able to control my robot from both my iPhone and iPad but it seems to only support connecting to one at a time and wants to restart the training missions from the beginning if I connect the other device. I’d love to have that tied to my Apple ID and support connection to multiple Bluetooth devices on the same profile.
So much fun, but I’m struggling to see the instructions
My 10-year-old son and I are having a blast with R2-d2! We’re having so much fun, plus it’s such a great learning experience that he doesn’t even know he’s learning!
My one critique would be to offer larger size text options. I have a Kindle and I have a Windows computer, neither can I download the app on so we are doing all of the instructions on my tiny iPhone SE.
We are still having a blast, and I wouldn’t trade it for the world but please, please either offer instructions another way or make a setting that allows you to make text larger.
Awesome!! Love it!!!
I absolutely love my droid! I got him for Christmas and was very excited as I opened the box. I have had other robot kits before and this one is by far the best. Other apps have some problems but I have never had any trouble with mine. I have a few suggestions. Keep adding new things to do in the app such as new controls to use with your droid. Maybe you could add an add on for movable legs and a foot that goes in and out. Also you should create other droid kits such as a bb8 kit or a C3PO kit. But anyway I love my droid so much! Good job guys!
