Mp3 Trigger Mobile Control

Hi Folks, Its that time of year to get the G-Bot ready for Halloween! Always exciting. I must say I was a little disappointed to see the MP3 Trigger control is not supported on the mobile interface. It would be so much easier to control the robot from my phone 100%. Anyone know if there are plans to implement this anytime soon? Thanks, Gwen
