The app doesn't work on Android 7.1.1. It crashes when scanning the QR code, which means that I can't properly use the lightbulb I payed a lot of money for. I will update the review once that problem is fixed (Older Android versions work fine, but I don't want to grab my old phone every time I want to turn on my lights)
Basic app I'm sure more functionality will come in time. I found that if the bulb doesn't connect to the gateway re-pair the controller to the gateway and bulb is there immediately. It also cured the update that was stuck on update pending.
All in all okay, but I have challenges with the gateway. It often takes a long time to connect to it or the connection drops. There seems to be no stable background activity. Also I wish the whole system would support Google Home and the moods could be set automatically. Also, when not in my home and connected to my WiFi i cant access the system, but if I connect to any WiFi I can.. Good start but some way to go.
NB If your gateway keeps disconnecting, like mine did. Its a hardware problem. So get a new one. It's a great start of a promisingly bright future. Hope they are gonna build up on this success. App itself is over simplified. At this point its just a nice bonus to the light's remote control.
Ok basic app but there are some annoying flaws. Like how do you change the order of the groups? And how do you move a remote to another group? Also needs more integration options. Quite buggy.
I bought today the tradfri access point and some bulbs to try them with the app, but You need to buy a remote to enter the app functions... I call this a major bug in the app. Forcing users to buy unnecessary stuff is like a scam
