please, for your development, take in to consideration to implement a throttle to control locos. Just focusing on the track plan will not thrash out the technical potential of the ipad

Nevertheless a great decision.

Hi Helge,

A throttle will be added but with a secondary priority.

iPad needs an other approach then its little iPhone brother so it took me a little wile to figure out how to put the pieces together.

But it grows little by little:

The System view uses the Button class from iRoc. ;)
Most of the iRoc classes can be used in padRoc.

Hi Rainer,

today I needed two new winter tires which did cost almost the same as an iPad...

So testing with the real thing is more or less a issue for Xmas.
