This review is about the "sleep Peanut" part of the app. It's like "let's create something like 'Sleep as Android', but worse": 1. The peanut pairing procedure is horrible unstable, took me like 20 minutes and 5 tries to get it working 2. The sleep tracking is intransparent. There is no "start tracking now" button. 3. The alarm itself is very limited. No raising volume, no custome sounds. 4. The alarm is badly implemented. I need to unlock the phone to see the tiny notification, instead of having a proper full-screen alarm. 5. There's no way of setting up the alarm range (plus/minus a specified number of minutes around the wakeup time). 6. Why the heck does it need an Internet connection during the tracking? Don't tell me that you're analysis system is too sophisticated to be handled by a phone. In the end, it seems to be an acceleration sensor with a Bluetooth chip and a microcontroller for too much money, bad software, and a privacy issue.
For the requirement of creating an account and the access of my location..
I like it, except that there is no multiple device functionality for remote sensing. When I contacted support the reply said that only one device can connect via Bluetooth, but they're working on it. Using one as a hub to check temps remotely doesn't seem to work either. Whenever I try to update a second device app remotely I'm told that peanut is not connected, even though I'm signed into the same account.
This is an immature product. Very buggy. Sometimes I can acquire the peanut sometimes I can't. I owned three temperature peanuts. I only have one now. One of them I smashed to bits on the floor when I got so frustrated. The other one, even though I put a new battery in it, just doesn't turn on anymore. The one that remains still works but it's hit-and-miss whether I can acquire it. Both Apple and Android. Apple seems to work well but once you acquire it won't relinquish the Bluetooth. And don't even get me started on the guard peanut I own. I wouldn't trust that thing. Once I got a message about half an hour after it the thing moved.
This peanut device says that it is already registered. I cannot get it to work. I worked on it some more and it works great.
Still some bugs. Don't know if this sensor or the app is in charge. Retrieving the temperature of the passed day from the sensor to the app takes much too long for this few data.
Following comments we received, you now have the option of modifying the smart wake up period, if you want your SleepPeanut to be able to wake you up later or earlier than 30 min before your alarm time.
We’ve also added a message notifying you when your Peanut battery is nearly empty.
This version also contains some general improvements and bug fixes.
