    With the games now coming with WiFi, I would like to have an app that allows me to change the settings without having to open the coin door. If I want to check a coil I don’t have to mess with the interlock switch. Same with adjusting coil power on troughs and VUKs. I could see many other possibilities.

    Make it password protected. Also have an option to disable the feature.that can only be accessed in the coin door menu.

    I like to physically dig around in the games. The tactile nature of pinball is what sets this hobby apart for me.

    Personally, I wouldn't download the app because eventually it would strip out that connective element from the games at some point.

    I work in IT and am not a luddite. Just let me unplug every one in awhile (as I post this on the internet).

    I think it would take more time than it's worth for me personally.

    While I would prefer the effort be put into code updates and game play features, this is a neat idea. I like the idea of opening Stern Game Hub, or JJP Game Hub, and seeing if I have the latest game code and browsing settings for all of my games. Universal settings would be cool. No matter what, I want Free Play, no attract sounds, etc. across every Stern game I own. A searchable PC interface would be great to look for settings. There are so many options now you really need to have the PDF open to make adjustments.

    I was going to say no to this idea, never liked the thought of internet connected pinball
    but I could see merit in this idea for when trouble shooting problems, with the playfield up, you could then use the diagnostic menus to check for switch issues, or fire soleniods or flashers

    That would be huge. Checking switches with pf up is a real pain in the balls. I think this has some potential as an app
