At SEMA this year Superwinch launched a new app called Roam. It allows you to control your winch from your smartphone. The phone connects to the machine using secure WiFi network built into the winch itself, which means that you can operate the winch remotely even without cell service.

Roam lets you winch in and out, view amps, temperature, line speed and run time.

interesting... I guess would be useful if you are trying to hook something up yourself. Saves on having to walk back and forth.

Seems like a cool idea but I am not exactly sure where it would be useful. I'm sure there are some creative things you could do with this to have some fun. Must be pretty cheap too since its just an app.

same price as the Superwinch winch you have to buy for the app to work ;) brand specific app. Not really any more useful than a wireless remote though.

APP's are cheap anyways, i rather have the APP, less things to carry around. The less the better, what we would ever do without smartphones.
