Latest version is a step backwards in functionality. Difficult and non-intuitive interface. No longer has the ability to select cook factors (size of cut, desired level of doneness). Have to look up temps and time online and fight the interface until it let's me but it in manually. Also, poor form requiring a login for BT only units. Hardware is great though.
The app has always been unreliable. Every single time I try to use it with my WiFi model, the connection doesn't work and I have to go through the lengthy connection process over again. You know, the one that says it will take several minutes and claims you'll only have to do it once? Yeah, I've had to do it dozens of times. Now I don't even bother with the app. The circulator itself is great but the app developers are incompetent.
The app worked perfectly and I enjoyed using it. I even didn't mind it now required me to create an account and sign into it. However, the latest update (as of 4/30/17) broke the app. It keeps sending out push notifications about how the water is ready even after it reaches temperature and I have set a timer. I tried to turn off notifications but it keeps crashing now. It really needs to be fixed. 6/12/17 - Everything works with this app now! The connection to my Anova seems more stable now too.
This latest app is way better than the old one. Previously my ANOVA kept beeping after finishing cook until turned off but now it doesn't, perfect.
Guide has been stuck on brisket for months. Delete the app, cleared the cache even tried a different device. Still stuck on brisket!
The new app is a massive step backwards. There has been no thought put into the ux whatsoever. Why would you remove the ability to choose the doneness/temperature of the recipe???
Thank you for your continued support and feedback, you're part of what makes this app better!
