Ratings and Reviews
Finally, a palatable price
I’ve been watching this app and its complaints of in-app purchases. When they finally removed the IAP requirement to be fully functional, I purchased it. Overall, it’s a nicely designed app and I like the fact that you can personalize the rooms with your own images. One thing I was surprised about is the lack of TRIGGER conditions. You can only build a trigger on date/time and frequency. No Location-based triggers and No Sunset/Sunrise triggers. A competing app has those trigger conditions (at almost 3x the price) but I would have figured that those would be included.
I’m still playing with the app and building my home, and will update review if i find any other positive or negative aspects of the app.
2stars for inapp purchase requirement, would have been 4
Developers note: this would've been a four star review if you would have just priced it at $9.95 with a free trial for one accessory. You're competing against apps that charge $15 so making people pay five dollars to find out they have to pay five more to unlock the real functionality is silly. And annoying. The Tutorial could be better, but The features and layout are very good, and better than most of the competition. Fix the pricing and I'll change the review.
Not there yet.
Most of the functionality is there, but the layout and navigation on a phone is horrible. Swiping right to left on part of the screen changes zones unless you are on the bottom, then it changes rooms?
The main screen is used for editing rooms (photos or names only), to actually use any of the functionality you have to swipe to the left (on the top of the screen) then choose the zone. After that you have to choose the room from another slider (which is in the middle of the screen this time) and then you can see the accessories.
There are no easy to press buttons anywhere to turn on lights or scenes.
Entering the triggers menu crashes the app.
It needs a major redesign in terms of navigation before it is worth spending the money.
