From the standpoint of a free app that taps into Rainforest's (economically priced) hardware, it's a perfectly functional app. Does it have room for improvement? Absolutely... One thing I'd like to see is a quicker way to switch between two devices/meters. Right now, it's seven taps through menus to flip views for dual meter properties. I suspect this app is OEM, though, and we likely won't see any updates from Rainforest. I've got say, though, Rainforest's support staff are absolutely great!
Graph of usage is extremely frustrating. It usually doesn't show upon going into Utility Meter. Exit and re-enter and wait? Maybe then, maybe not. There's no way to zoom in or see exactly when the energy usage changes. Isn't this the whole purpose of the app? They finally have utility TOU pricing plans built in which is very welcome but show me the totally price over a day or week or month would be much better than just the current cost of energy being used. As I said, better than it was.

This app is SO buggy! Half the time I get a totally black screen instead of my energy reading!! And setting up the Eagle 200 device associated with this app was totally messed up for both houses I tried to install it in. Really not ready for prime time. How hard can this be? Help Desk very responsive and helpful but only by email so no real time assistance. This app and the Eagle 200 devices have wasted a lot of my time over the past weeks.
