Allows me to talk to Echo from Anywhere! Now I can control my A/C units with the simple press of the Ubi widget on my phone and my voice. No more having to click through different screens on my A/C's app. No more having to walk over to the room where my Echo is located. I have found it to be very time saving and convenient. Would be nice if it had access to the music as well, but it's still a very good app and does exactly what I hoped.
It worked, then it turned into Ubi, and now it doesn't work. In my Amazon Alexa App, it is still listed as Lexi, but is offline. I'm not sure how to make sure it is online. I've opened an account at the Ubi portal, followed all instructions I could find... no dice. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling... waste of time. I was using this app along with my Echo, Echo Dot, and Abode app to control my Abode Security System and smart home lights/appliances. I guess I just won't be using this app anymore. Too bad... I did like it at one point. So, uninstalling the app, deregistering "Lexi" in Alexa app, and closing my account in the Ubi portal.
I wanted this primarily so I could turn off Echo remotely if I left the house while it was playing music but this will not do that. I did get it to add items to my shopping list. Are the developers planning on adding the music on/off capability?
Data issue (updated) This is an awesome app, however, I think it is chewing up mobile data. Please let me know if it does use mobile data. That will determine what I do with this app.
Great Idea Developer deserves a chance make it better but works well already.
UBI is Awesome but Amazon is Enforcing Echo with Prime Music. Worked great till they made the Change. I still recommend UBI it's great for J6 - Jeopardy.
Name changed to Ubi App.
