Ratings and Reviews
App Update Feb2019
In most part I’m 100% in agreement with the previous review about the new Feb 2019 update. However, once I changed(Reorder) the home page, I do not have the issue with my home page resetting back to the default after I close the app & then reopen it on my iOS device. And who uses the term “Reorder” to to identify the procedure to rearrange, edit or manage the home screen? I originally thought it was for reordering of more devices. I do agree there is too much wasted space and would prefer the information being a little more condensed vs. having to scroll down the page. And, I also agree with the alerts/alarms. I’ve checked my settings numerous times, but if my iPhone is locked or if I do not have the App open, I do not receive /hear any notification from the App of a sensor being tripped. Notification can be resolved with IFTTT but would think the App itself would be able to provide that notification. I would the ability to remove a room from the home page, but have yet to find a way to do so. I do appreciate the improvements that Samsung made in an effort to improve the App and suspect there is a learning curve on my part, but I would like the user to have the capability/flexibility to manage their home screen the way the user wants it vs how Samsung thinks it should be.

This app is sadly limited
You able to use this with a 2018 Samsung Smart TV. Now you can search for shows from the in app hub for it. But I see shows in there that I know are on Netflix but it does not state that. Same stuff for some other apps. To put icing on the cake, its a smart TV which at times requires typing things into each app, yet does not have a on screen keyboard in the app that I can find. There is even a internet explorer where you have to use the tv remote with an on screen keyboard.
Now i get it maybe you are trying to push people to buy keyboards and set them alongside of your TV. That I have to say is pretty annoying, I already have one and it is annoying to switch between remote and keyboard. I traded in a different TV that had was supported from a competitor nick named Goku TV for this comment. In that app, not only can you type on your TV screen through the app, but you can stream the tv sound through your phone. It is truly innovative compared to this application. That can only control on/off, +/- Volume/Channel, 0-9 numbers, previous channel, up-down-left-right, and power. To top it all off its pretty laggy. It also has accurate searches through the app. Its sad that I will probably replace the smart side of this TV by plugging in a Goku TV adapter to the HDMI port.
No sounds, Alarms, Ringtones. (#3 below)
App Update Mar 2019:
*FIXED* Reordering home page loses settings when you close and reopen app, leaning everything out of order.
Request #1: PLEASE UNDERSTAND most users open this app to do stuff like open the garage, lock/unlock doors, etc. You want to be able to get to those items quickly, not scroll down a long page searching for it. Please adjust the Home page to show as many items as possible in minimum space with minimum scrolling. It should look like an optimized control panel, not a long list of stuff on a website!
Request #2: Please, go back to ‘changing the color of an item’ if Door Unlocked, Garage Open, Sensed Motion, etc. the way it used to work. That makes it a lot easier to see and identify something that is wrong!
Request #3: This app is really too “quiet” to provide meaningful alarms. If the phone is in your pocket you’re not going to know there’s been an intrusion until you look at the phone. Why on earth would Samsung develop an app like this that doesn’t let you select any ‘sounds’ as part of a notification. — The lack of any audio notifications makes an otherwise good app somewhat worthless. Why not let us select different sounds for different alerts. I’d like to be able to select a separate sound for each sensor or condition. My Ring Doorbell app provides audio alerts, so it seems easy enough to do.
Withholding 5 stars until this and above-mentioned issues are addressed.
