I saw this on Ask This Old House and was very interested. I would love to try it and give a better rating but the app will not open past the splash screen. I am running the Google Pixel 2 XL which is running Android 8.0 so maybe they have not updated to work with the new Android update. Still Centriq I will change my rating when and if I can get it to even open.
I think it's a great app. It's just what I've been waiting for for a long time. I believe people are being to harsh about the time it takes to load your equipment information. Give it a few days. The intent of the app is to have a place for your files and appliance info. Not instantaneous results. If you need that, get you hard copy manual or search on line. This is a great place to have the home info you need without searching all over. Now with that said, is like to see more editing capabilities like deleting photos and moving files. Hopefully the updated version will take care of it.
It blows. The idea is kind of cool but implementation blows big time. No live database. You take a picture of your appliance information plate and then submit it. Then people manually add the information and get back to in 24 hours or so. There definitely needs to be a big level of app maturity happening quickly to keep this alive
I love this app. Not sure where folks are having issues. Maybe they're a bit impatient? This is free for goodness sakes. Maybe they have unique appliances? Centriq has found all our stuff so far. Then they include manuals and videos and how-to's and parts. It's amazing.
You got to give this app time. I've been scanning stuff in and after 2-3 days, the appliance shows up. It is really cool cause it found my brand new hot water tank manual in 3 days and it is EXACTLY the one I have a hard copy of.
Works great on my Note 5. It didn't pick up any info when I took a picture - maybe I didn't wait long enough. Once I entered the model number, it showed owner's manual, videos, and sent me to Amazon with the correct info to order parts. Only problem I see is there is no way to delete pictures or info I incorrectly entered.
Minor fixes and enhancements.
