Q: do you need to have one smart phone in use for each car you're racing at a given time?

edit: answer on the page - "System Requirements : Each player must have a compatible iOS or Android Device. Wifi is required when using both iOS and Android devices."

can you buy 2 sets, and combine the 2 tracks and use the 4 cars on the same tracks?

Might want to download the app now and save it as the company is going out of business - so no guarantee that the app will be available next Christmas.

On a similar note - is there a way to download and save the app (from google play and apple) so have it saved locally for any future phone or ipod purchases? I have 2 of these sets (love them) and don't want them to turn into junk without access to the app.

Oh crap! I didn't know that. I have two sets I bought last Christmas. The kids used it only a few times. I would hate to think they will become useless without the app.

iTunes by default doesn’t allow you to access the App Store (they removed the option after a while). For Apple devices, download this iTunes (Select the right version according to your computer):

https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT208079

This version allows you to download apps from the App Store (The Mac version doesn’t work with macOS Mojave)

Good option if you want to download your apps as a backup just in case.

I am not sure about this deal. I'm concerned about the app and Anki going out of business. Any thoughts? It's useless without the app and it probably needs updates over time.

the app should work as long the device can support it.
In long term, it'll be obsoleted (and unusable).

This would be something that would benefit from Amazon's warranty knowing the company is defunct and they will not offer any assistance with issues.

Thanks OP, ordered one from the last sale and the kids have been loving it and have been asking for more cars. Ordered another to expand the track and just have to figure out how to label the cars so they can distinguish them.
