Clean map is really cool, but this is one of those annoying apps where the developers think I need a notification about everything and no way to disable it. It says simply disable" but there is no option to disable, so I have to do it at the operating system level. Do app developers not have phones? Or not find it annoying when every app is so presumptuous about how important it is that I be notified with an alert the second my house is vacuumed? I really don't need that.
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!!!!!!!
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.
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!
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.
