Ratings and Reviews
HomeRun hits it out of the park!
If your looking for an amazing App to control all of your HomeKit scenes from your wrist from the comfort of your Apple Watch face, this is it! From being able to set a scene to auto-run just by pressing the complication on your watch face, or opening the App and selecting whatever scene your may need, HomeRun does this beautifully. HomeRun also allows your to change the scene’s icon and background colors outside of the Apple Home App’s limitations, making it visually appealing, and easy when you only may be able to give your watch a quick look. This developer has made several other Apps for use with Apple HomeKit, and they are all of superior quality, and the absolute best out there. If you have a Apple SmartHome, I suggest you check out all of his other Apps as well. Keep up the great work! Five Stars!
After downloading the app it wouldn’t download to my Watch was well, which basically defeated the purpose of the app. I emailed the developer, and within the hour they messaged back recommending I reboot my phone. Worked like a charm!
Unfortunate that the step was necessary, but the app works fine now, and I’m very impressed and satisfied with the developer’s responsiveness.
Developer Response ,
Glad I could help. I am in the progress of contacting Apple regarding this issue to see if they can suggest a solution.
Great App and Great Appearance
Does exactly as it says and appears to be legitimate and has never crashed so far. I think that the only thing that would make this sundae with a cherry on top would be the availability of this being a widget in the today view. The look of these shortcuts flow great with the appearance of iOS and having a widget for it on the iPhone would be an awesome touch.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
