The primary reason to pay a premium for a Nest is the ability to control it remotely. The app works sporadically at best, so the ability to control it while away from home is a false promise. We have one installed at home and one at a cabin. The ability to connect to them goes down at the same time and comes back at the same time, so it obviously is a problem on their end. Yesterday when leaving the cabin, we wanted to increase the temperature at home so when we returned it would be comfortable. we were unable to connect the whole way home and returned to a cold house. We never would have turned the temp down to 50 if we didn't think we could connect remotely. We are able to connect remotely about 40% of the time in the two weeks we've owned them. Update March 2013: connectivity has improved. Functions fine now. I think they must have been overloaded with more Christmas installs than expected.

Can't control
It is been a great system but ever since a last update I cannot control .It connects but I can't raise or lower the temperature It keeps tell me that service cannot be reached right now. I called them and they said it's probably my phone but I'm hearing other people are having this issue to. my phone is fine

Please make this app work with voice overs
We purchased the nest, and it's a great tool, but the app does not work with voice over for those of us using voice over. Please, please fix this!

Temperature adjust
The app is nice for controlling the thermostat. Setup was easy. Only complaint is adjusting the temperature from the app is difficult without the arrows or guidance on where to twist of press.

Not bad :D
The app works fine. I love controlling the nest from my bed or couch (lazy). I have mechanical knowledge so the set up was fine. My only complaint was the unit wasn't charged at all, so the initial set up was annoying. My suggestion if you have not yet installed your unit is to plug into the USB for a few hours. Even if the device says "plug back into the wall"...don't. It will only allow you to go through part of the set up and then display "nest is currently charging to continue" so charge it! Have fun with it it's a great concept.
