Holy cow. I love the newest update. I hope the new clean map can be saved for further improvement on the clean path of roomba. minimizes errors if previous map can be used by roomba. wow this is amazing. great work with push notifications and the clean map. well done! I hope to see continued improvements, so glad I bought roomba and not the neato bot vac!!!!!!!
A bit of lag when connecting, but it hasn't failed me and it gives lots of helpful ways to customize how the 980 works. Easy to use, too. No complaints. *Edit* 9/27/16: App still stable and responsive. More details on what got tweaked in updates would be nice. Edit 3/16/17: The new update with the map is great! I'm glad iRobot continues to improve it's app. It helps future-proof your bot!
The clean map is cool but my history has not updated in the past week and I can't figure out what to do. Not very helpful if it's showing only old information.
Having used the iOS version of the app for a year, I recently started using the android version. Overall, very disappointed. Connected to the same WiFi AP to the same Roomba 980 the Android version is MUCH slower to get data from the unit (e.g. Care statuses) and when it comes to starting a clean or resuming a paused clean, the iOS app is nearly instant while the Android app takes 20-40 seconds for the unit to respond. In addition, the Locate Device function fails 100% of the time. iRobot, please listen!
The latest update added the much needed notifications. Thank you! Alexa support coming soon is also good. Would like IFTTT support too. Android version is still sluggish which is why only 4 stars.
Map is cool, thanks. However, needs work. Missing walls, horrible room layout precision despite having the much smaller "cleaned" zones, slow map loading, relocates pieces. I just did a corner rectangle with two virtual walls and part of the top migrated to the other side of the map sticking like a sore thumb. Also it's more than the one square meter reported, closer to two. Can virtual wall distance be modified? It's way too much. Scheduling changed to accommodate the minimum 15 minute intervals. I'd still prefer two daily schedules. Remote locate show dock or stuck. Actual battery left. RoombAVision - a nice perspective. D-pad control with home and spot buttons, why not there yet?
