Great router, lousy app. I've used a lot of routers with parental controls over the years. Some were missing important features, others wouldn't work half the time. Synology router is a dream in that it's a powerful router with every parental control feature I need. But the app is half baked. To make matters worse, there's a Web portal one can use to setup & change parental control settings that's pretty good but this app is missing features or works differently compared to the portal. Why?!?!

This app for the Synology router is great. I've never had any problems using it. It allows me to do everything I need to do with the router without having to login using the web based authentication. It also lets you trigger firmware updates from the app. The parental controls have a wide range of features/options that are all controllable via the app. It's the main reason I made this choice on the specific router. No complaints here.

Simple design and good feature set. Some people seem to be complaining that it doesn't match the full capabilities of the browser; I don't think that's realistic given the complexity of SRM, so I'm happy to just use this for monitoring my network. Obviously the browser is needed for setup or major configuration changes.
