Really useful! After some use, we have a couple of comments. It could be possible to use the web interface with bluetooth instead of wifi (taking advantatge of the bluetooth pre-installed in RPi 3)? Or is it possible to use some kind of direct wifi connection between the Pi and phone/tablet/pc (this is to avoid the use of a router)?
