App is Behind the Times


iPhone X facial recognition. Instead of typing in my password every time I want to get your app up, which is not a lot to be honest, would make me more interested in using it. The functionality is basic and compare to the website much more difficult to navigate. Total little 21st-century technology and front of it, facial recognition, and it will give the app the appearance of being in the front running as far as technology goes. Eventually the backend does need to be improved, but leaving the impression that you have tweaked your app to take advantage of the cutting-edge iPhone X functionality you can keep it a secret longer.

Enjoy the app, dislike being logged out all the time.


The app is good. I like being able to see my usage, and would love to actually receive an energy bridge so I could see it in real time. The graphs are nice and easy to read. I don’t care too much about the gamification part of the app, but can see how people could get into it.

However, it’s really frustrating that half the time I load the app I have to manually log in again. Any other app on my phone allows me to use Touch ID to log in, or at least a pin.

Not yet compatable with IPhone 7


I have had this app for a few months and linked it to the DTE Bridge. It gave me some usefull information however the one tool I really wanted to use was the one that uses your Smart Phone to measure the usage of an electrical device in your home. When I opened and tried to use it I received a message telling me the IPhone 7 was not yet supported. IPhone6's all the way down to IPhone 4s are compatable. I continue to check since the last two updates and still no luck.
