That would be something anyone with access to the API could easily create.   Although it would probably have to be one that knows and likes using CW - rules me out!  :-)

So many options for these sorts of gadgets - you could create an app for an iPhone or Windows Phone (I have several little apps that I have created that allow me to control the 6000 on my Windows Phone 8.1) and yes, Android too! 

By using the Network API you can connect as a client from anywhere on your Wi-Fi network.  So imagine bringing up a client on your phone that simply controls memories.      Very similar to what Stu's iPad app does - but with trimmed down functionality.

The Flex 6000 is a great reason for more hams to learn programming and come and play in the water!   It's easier than you think.
