I'm hoping this app will improve as Nex appears to be interested in improving things. Have problems with notifications not "sticking". Meaning I'll set the light pattern to something different and it either changes back to the default for that app or reverts back to the original colors. It does not appear to happen with custom light patterns. Which brings me to my next bit. Custom light patterns aren't as nice or smooth as the presets. The ability to fade in or out light notes would greatly help this. I also ran into an issue a few times where the band would stop showing lights at all. I have the replay notification mod on, and when I activate it sometimes it won't light up on touch or show the last light notification BUT it will show that I activated the mod in the app (or it will just vibrate with no light pattern). Going in and looking at my notification light patterns will reset this for some reason. Special light notifications like party, trance, etc I wish you could hack these for taps to start and stop it as necessary. Another great hack option I'd like to see is the ability to have your phone listen for sounds and make light patterns on the band appropriately. I would also like to see a light pattern notification you can turn on for low battery. It died today and I had no idea, just stopped receiving notifications until they all backed up on my phone. Please make these bug fixes so I can rate you as a 5 on my next review!
Great concept, a few bugs and missing features on Android.
Setting up custom IFTTT hacks with my Nex Band was a cinch. App itself came with lots of useful hacks like a Step Counter, Alarm Clock and Music Controller. Very happy with my purchase.
I really love all the different features on The Nex Band, it's very easy to set up and customize hacks that I need everyday on the go. It also has a great battery life, I can go up to almost a week without needing to charge it!
The Nex app on my LG g3 works pretty well with my band and reacts pretty quickly. The app is easy to use but you have to check for the firmware update. Pairing works well. Its good that the app let's you lnow when your band needs to be recharged. Download IFTT for cool features the set is super simple!
