App needs improvement
First of all, the Nest thermostat it self is spectacular. This review in no way reflects the hardware itself or its usability. The iPhone on the other hand leave a little to be desired. My biggest complaint is having to put my phone in to landscape mode to have full usability of the app. I tend to keep my phone locked in portrait mode and its kind of a pain to unlock it every time I want to switch between heating and cooling.

<3 my nest, app needs more work.
I had shipping problems with my nest order too but they were resolved and this isn't the place to discuss that. The nest is super easy to install, but again out of scope of an app review. As far as this app: Having control of our thermostat via iOS is very cool. Critical data is hidden under a menu, "At a Glance" while a ton of real estate empty. This is data you always want at hand. More info about external weather could be exposed. While clever, there's a lot you can only find by a discovery process. In other words, not instantly intuitive. The current home temperature isn't shown on the app icon which would be a nice touch.

I been using Nest from their initial release. It has saved me money on my energy bill, especially in the summer months. I did have one of my Nest wall units error out but after contacting support I had a new one in no time at all. Thanks Nest! Great product, great support.

Great product but...
The app would be better if the large thermostat icon showed more info. You should be able to see the rooms current temp, thermostat mode, humidity and fan status, with a quick glance at the large thermostat icon.

Nice App - minor flaws
My only gripe is the "turn phone sideways" issue others have noted. You have to turn your phone to landscape to make the more robust features available. This is strange and unnecessary. Otherwise it's a pretty nice app - easy to read interface, easy to use (mostly) and works as advertised.

Awesome product and app
This is a great investment. No more wondering if children turned AC up or off when they left for school.
