- Enhanced performance
- Miscellaneous bug fixes
Pretty much stopped being reliable after iOS 8
I can tap the controls on and off multiple time, no response. I have 5 iOS devices in my network all have the same issue. I can hit the web interface via the reassigned web port (I changed the default port 80 to another port to accommodate another network service I am running on my home network). If I use a browser it is very smooth, just like this app once was. So I think I will just stick to doing that now. I wish they didn't drop this thing like a hot rock once they introduced the fusion upgrade. Too bad. Some people do not like to leave their super expensive aquarium equipment open to a cloud service. I am an old school guy that likes a direct connection to his devices.
Doesn't work & is ugly
I love my apex & I really like fusion on a web browser. However, I am disappointed in this app. It doesn't work half the time (example: atm nothing is happening when I try to log in, which prompted this review). When it does let me log in, it is aesthetically repulsive, unlike fusion.
As much as I paid for my Apex and its components, I fully expect a functioning app to control it from. This was a selling point for me originally. Why on earth do I want to run back and forth from my computer to my tank for every click and adjustment?
The lack of a functioning app makes Apex as a product itself less valuable.
Great App for Apex
Just installed the app and got it configured. Had a problem getting error message "Duplicate Name" which wouldn't log in. Here's what I found. I noticed in my outlets that I had 2 unused slots that I left blank. If you have empty slots, name them Empty1 & Empty2, etc.. then save. Relaunch the app and see if that fixes that error. It worked for me and the app works great.
