App functionality is just "meh". Clean map and history is fine, but how about an option for multiple cleaning passes per run? Why is the dock button always grayed? Why do I have to pick up the unit and return it to the dock myself every time I'm done remote-controlling it or I prematurely end a run? And where are those options? I have the latest firmware installed (2.2.0, right?), yet the only option available is changing the unit's name. Where are the options for wifi and setting reminders that I'm seeing in the pictures? These are not showing in my own app. C'mon, Neato. You can do better than this.
It is a decent app. Few things that work... lot of room for improvement, but definitely decent user experience. The Alexa integration skill works. i think this company is on the right path. I just hope that they can dream bigger and do more investiment on this app. What i don't get why the hoover need to be updated via USB. For something that is always connected on WiFi doesn't make any sense.
My robot will not stay connected to Wi-Fi not even when manually started. So, for me having the app on my phone is useless since he only stayed connected the first week I had him. I updated when it told me to and he hasn't worked with the app since. I still Love my robot just the app needs work.
This app does not do much. And it leaves a lot to be desired. E.g. the possibility to continue cleaning after a commanded return to base. And change of cleaning mode during cleaning. As the machine itself often loses contact with the wifi, it becomes almost useless. Conclusion: You don't need this app at all. Everything can just as well be done from the machine's panel.
The app could use some work. I hate that my robot sends me an alert and I can't do anything from the phone. I have to physically find the robot and then address any notifications. Also, if the robot goes out to clean and the dust bin gets full, I'd like the option to send it back to dock. Right now the docking feature is always greyed out. Please fix.
Screan says it's stuck app says it's stuck.. that's good but when screan says clean my brush, app says it's stuck.. screan says empty my dirtbin and filter, app says it's stuck.. no app option to return to start. No option to do anything once it says it stuck, your stuck until you get home. Then it's dead because it beeped all day.
