Great Hardware but... The software really hampers my love for the product. The app controller tries to switch screens whenever I attempt to select buttons. It seems to think I'm dragging my finger instead of pressing it straight down. This causes for almost all operations to take 3 to 4 times as long as they do on the physical remote. Unfortunately, if I want to change something on a single device that isn't normally programmed into an activity (menu for receiver), I have to use the app (receiver didn't come with a remote).
Latest update Great ui, now that you can edit everything. Following Google guidelines would just ruin this app.
Actual harmony is great but the harmony app is total trash Ever since Harmony 4.x, I have nothing but problems such as app force close, buggy interface where I customize each buttons on the app as soon as I exit out the activity, all the buttons get randomly shuffle, and half of the time it can't even detect my harmony hub.
New design is much better, but bugs Hamburger menu needs to slide out when sliding finger in left edge. Illogical ui in many places. Need easier quicker way to switch between hubs. Need ability to rename buttons. Good attempt but need further redesign.
Makes life easier... mostly The app and smart remote / hub work pretty well together. There is one big annoyance: when you press an activity button on the remote when the activity is already in use, it turns off and puts everything into a broken state.
Great App, BUT... I STILL can't add the August Lock to my hub. EDIT after manufacturer response: Downgrading to 1 star just for the weak response. Your SITE says the hub is compatible with Smart Lock. Your PACKAGING says it's compatible with Smart Lock. No mention of a need for August Connect. That, in fact, defeats the purpose! Connect would give me remote control of my Lock by itself! Very disappointed with this response even though I love the home theater control the hub provides.
