Mediocre since I got it in 2016. DO NOT GET!


Not worth the hundreds of extra dollars to purchase the starter and hundreds of dollars in subscriptions to use what you paid for. Ongoing problems with Apple Watch (key reason I bought it) that was eventually fixed and now does not work out all since the update (“please resync”). The watch must also use the app from the phone, which also defeats the purpose of the watch app (had to pay to get my doors unlocked before I learned that assuming the watch app would work...). Then they decide to finally catch up and add Siri. Shocker it doesn’t work! Had to redownload the app and read reviews in the App Store to figure out how to use it (must say car name) BUT it only works to lock my car and cannot be used to start or stop. So what’s the point? Oh try the new widget, you think? Another potentially cool feature that only opens up the full app. Again...What. Is. The. Point? I wish, after all these years, I got a simple <$100, one-time payment keychain starter...

We're sorry that you're having issue with the app. Have you opened a ticket from our support team?

Update sounded good but...


It’s a bust. Watch app no longer works, widget doesn’t work, just says there is a error, Siri same doesn’t work. Only thing that now works is opening the app and using it manually.
-The widget would be awesome especially if it didn’t have to open the app to use.
-Same with Siri, if I could yell at her to start my truck without having to look at her (iPhone X) or whatever, would be on point.
-the watch app, love it, please fix it please please. Only request... the ability to use it without being near the phone. Especially with the series 3, having the ability to use the lte on the watch to use the app would be perfect!

Update: when using the widget from either a locked phone or unlocked, no matter what I choose, it opens the app and refreshes and that’s it.
I manually entered DroneMobile account credentials in my keychain, and made sure Siri has access, when I tell her to unlock she says “I’m sorry there is something wrong with the app” and there is a button to open drone mobile. At that point it refreshes and that’s it. That’s from a locked state or unlocked.

Thank you for your fast response to this!

Update: still waiting for the update to fix series 3 watch. But deleting and reinstalling the app fixed the widget and Siri. That... made my month I won’t lie. Fix the watch = 5 stars

Thank you for the updated response. We are still in the middle of fixing the Apple Watch issue but will have that and Siri fixed ASAP. Again we apologize and thank you for your patience!

What error are you getting when trying to use the widget? As far as Siri, you have to use Keychain to save your Drone account credentials. That is how Siri validates the connection to DroneMobile. You also have to grant Siri permission to access DroneMobile. As far as the watch app, we know about the issue and will release the fix in the next version. This only affects Series 3 GPS and LTE watches.

Watch App fail


I give the app 3 stars because the app is at least functional however, the watch app constantly fails and says either “sync with phone” OR “log into phone, handoff available” whatever the heck thats supposed to mean.... I quite literally have not been able to start my car from the watch app, ever....... As for the app, the update on the status of my vehicle is not worth the 20+ second wait every single time I want to open the app so its just always wrong on showing my car is started or my doors are locked but that I guess I can live with... Please fix the watch app... The phone works just fine without it being synced and its wrong about the status 90% of the time...

Developer Response

We have been working on the Apple Watch issue for a bit and will have an update to address that as soon as possible. Have you tried removing the Drone app from your Apple Watch and re-adding? We have been able to get some users working by trying that.

As far as the app, it pulls the last known reported status from the servers. That is why it will not show the exact vehicle status at the time.
