It makes setting up the Mesh system simple. If that's what you're doing, you won't regret downloading it (and setting up a Netgear account). You're forced to set up a Netgear account. If you want to fine time your local network, such as even simple "advanced" settings, like allocating fixed IP addresses, this app doesn't help. Direct HTTP access to the router is *slightly* better. Also, if you want to be reminded of other Netgear services you could buy, this is the app for you.

Not that good honestly. Why are half the devices just named "unknown" with no way to change it? I even updated it in the Access Control settings on the actual webpage but it didn't update on the app. And the app doesn't have nearly the same number of settings available. Other than that, no complaints. It works well, no crashes, no errors, good UI, quick and responsive

Worst app ever. Every time I try to run it, it wants to set up from scratch like I had just installed it from the first time. Then, I finally get to where it is "connected" to the router, but then it hangs forever trying to "detect" it. Only option offered is to blow all my router settings away and start with factory defaults which I am not going to do because I can manage the router just fine through the web interface. Ive cleared cache, data, uninstall/reinstall, total waste of time.
