Update: answer from iDevice works. Great job replying to consumers. New comment: Android version of app is slower to connect to devices than iOS version.
Why does this app require access to my Google acct?
No longer connects to the idevice kitchen thermometer
This app does not work. It keeps looking for Android devices, not the iDevices it should be looking for. Using a Samsung Edge 7 with android version 7
Why did you change the app where you have to use wifi. I don't have wifi in my area. So it's useless iGrill2.
Takes alot of patience to get these idevices working properly as they are not a simple plug, connect and use device! I have 3 plugs and 2 light sockets connected using Alexa! To help eveyone out, first count all wifi connected devices in your household (phones,tv,tablets,ect...) and ensure your router and speed can handle it all or you may need to upgrade like I had to. Ensure that your phone is connected to the slower 2.4 GHz on dual routers and stop any app from auto updating as this slows everything down. When setting up the idevice app and creating an account to link with Alexa, I also had to create an account on the desktop website in order for Alexa to finally recognize idevice skill! Connecting each device had to be done right next to the router using an extension cord because it will not pair most of the time from a distance! If it doesn't pair, cancel setup and reset the device holding the button until flashing red then try to add it again! FYI-If you change routers, you'll have to go through this process all over again with each device. Once connected, you can unplug and plug back in wherever you intended it to be without issues. Once it works, they work great but definitely a hassle as I was on the verge of returning these myself! I did not use their customer service for support and the reviews on here were not helpful nor are the idevice customer support responses, as these just seem automated. Hope this helps!
