Ratings and Reviews
If you have more than a handful devices and scenes, you will find this app totally terrible. Devices and scenes are now in a place called “favorite devices” or “favorite scenes”. No, you cannot decide what your favorites are. Fibaro does! And those “favorites” keep on changing so looking for something becomes very time consuming - or impossible if you have devices and scenes grouped by “room” and don’t use universally unique names. Yes, you can try to find a room In Fibaro’s “favorite rooms” ( no, it is not in the logical order you once set up but an ever changing mess), then scroll through Fibaro ‘s order of devices, which takes long as a single device can take up most of the screen, if you are lucky to find it then you need to click to open it and finally you can change its status. Turning on three specific lights in the house could now take ten minutes. This app is as bad as the Fibaro system is unreliable.
Better than the previous generation, but...
It’s much better than what it used to be, but let’s be honest, it’s still not great. The dashboard is my main concern. I don’t get why this isn’t a vertical list (which is much more usable), and all of my devices are put on a horizontal list, which has this nasty snapping with haptic feedback, and I can’t really scroll it fast enough to quickly get what I wanted. It’s an early release and I hope things like slowed animation in settings on an iPhone X will get resolved.
It’s actually good to see that Fibaro did not abandon iOS users after all. Hopefully this can become a 5-star app at some point.
Great new layout, no widgets though?
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
