Here’s what others think:
Rather than twiddling the thermostat like someone’s dad in the 1980s, you twiddle with the thermostat via a smart-looking app, like someone’s dad in 2013 - stuff.tv
This is designed to put heating and hot water controls in the palm of your hand rather than you having to clamber in a dark cupboard to change them - tech.uk

What's New in Version 1.23
Bug fixes and performance improvements
Needs a bug fix
Since I installed an update a number of weeks ago, the app has a mind of its own, I carried out the suggested update, since then when i check the setting I have chosen (frost protection) it says it is on 5 degrees instead, bizarre! Please can you. Fix this as in accurate info. I installed the so called bug fix update today and still the same problem. Is anyone listening to customers feedback.
Stopped working since update
Had Hive installed last week and worked great. Then stopped working when I checked it this morning. I phoned British gas engineer who installed it and he said his has also stopped working. It reports that it cannot connect to router but router is working fine for everything else. I then noticed that the Hive app had an automatic update dated yesterday. Please get it fixed.....
IPHONE 6 PLUS
Would like to see a coloured LED on the heating / hot water to show the boiler is ignited, I’m told there is a little icon on the bottom left of app, but its not clear enough.
I would like to know when my boiler has lit up
