Bad UI
I love this concept and was one of the first purchasers but they have made the UI of this app - and the website and the device painful!!! A simple thing like changing the system from heating to cooling requires you to know to turn the iPhone horizontal and then dig into menus. I understand it but none of my family does. So now I get messages from them to change the heater to ac. Now possible with remote control but a new task I never had before. My case is special because I put this in my moms house and she is often hot and cold and changing between ac and heat more than most but no one in the house, even the younger people besides me understand the UI. The web is no better.

Helpful info
Hey folks, I just wanted to give some useful info for those having issues with the Nest since the most recent firmware update. After updating, I no longer had the ability to change from heat to cool and vice versa remotely. I simply did not have the option available on my Ipad, Iphone, or web applications. I rebooted the Nest by pressing the ring, selecting settings, reset, then restart.. Worked like a charm. I now have the option to change from heat/cool on my apps and on the PC.

Temp control simple as that
This is a great app.. Lets you control your thermostat from anywhere with great ease. For those of you saying it is difficult to adjust the temperature with the recent update, you are wrong! Instead of having the arrows to adjust the temperature, you now TAP the thermostat on the upper or lower half to adjust the temp in 1 degree increments.

Add back the control arrows
At least give the user a preference so they can turn it back on.

App fails with latest version
For me, everything stopped working with the latest version. Nest says it's due to Apple upgrading Airport software, but I haven't upgraded mine. iPhone and iPad will no longer connect to the thermostat.

So far so good
Very easy to use. My only complaint is I wasted my time taking their survey. It would not let me enter the company who did the install so I could not save it. I want my 5 minutes back!
