Customer Reviews

Pretty disappointing

This is worse than the old dropcam app. The screen with the round bubbles used to have a still shot of each cam, which was far more useful for a quick glance than the wasted blank space we have now. History is improved on the phone app - but you must wait for a clip to finish playing, then press "continue" in order to go full screen... Weird... Why can't I message links to clips anymore? Why does enhancing the image now give a pop up EVERY time stating that newly recorded video is now at that zoom level? There is a bug when you try to pan while "enhanced", it just kicks you out to the main screen.. <Palm to forehead> would be better if it did nothing. If this were a free app, I could understand it. I now use camio to view day to day history, as the interface and notifications are more useful... Camio only has stills though -- about 1 FPS -- So I use the nest app when I want to stream live video at a quick framerate, listen to sound, etc.

GUI Downgrade | Privacy Alert

With this update, the screen GUI is more cluttered than in the previous version, and all-blue (cooling) and all-red (heating) screens are hard on the eyes. Placement of the UP/DOWN arrows is haphazard and breaks the minimalist design. PRIVACY ALERT: There's a price to using this app. Nest's sensors capture various data and send them to the company (now Google). This includes when you're home and when you're away. Why in the world does Google, notorious for its data mining and disregard of user privacy, need to know that? It amounts to low-tech, in-home surveillance. No thank you. App deleted, and the thermostat works just fine offline. Caveat emptor. Every day we're handing over our privacy for "features." In light of the widespread indifference to corporate and governmental incursions into individual privacy, you have to wonder if "smart" devices such as the Nest aren't smarter than the consumers who use them. Really, do we need to go through the Internet to set the AC in our house? What's next—a smart toilet?

Downgrade from the Dropcam app

Although the Dropcam app wasn't perfect, there are two major issues with the new Nest app:
1. The overview is gone. I can no longer see what is happening on all cameras on one screen. This makes it impossible to easily keep track of kids when they are in different rooms. What is with the tiny little circles? They are useless and there is so much wasted space on the main screen now.
2. This burns up our devices. After having the monitor on for a bit of time, my phone is burning hot and the battery is severely drained. The original Dropcam app did not do this (or at least wasn't nearly as bad with battery usage).
One nice improvement would be the ability to shut off the screen and still have the audio on. This would help conserve battery power especially at night when I'm asleep.
Until these 2 items are fixed I will just keep using the original app. With the major flaws in the new app, it's pretty much unusable.
