Interface lacking
This is an app review so I'll begin by saying the thermostat itself is fine. However, the app has several serious flaws. On the iPad the available real estate is nearly unused, the top 60% is a cutesy view of an outhouse and a large cartoon graphic of the thermostat. Is it still 1980? App is even worse on iPhone. On either device, I have yet to figure out how to use the "fan only" which is the single best setting to save energy. App also needs the ability to confirm if you are going to bed, "done for the night". I don't work every day and on more than one occasion, the software woke me up by heating the house after I'd manually turned it off and gone to bed. This wastes energy and spoils my nights sleep - on a night that I have to work early the next morning. I've had to carefully fine tune the shutoff points in an effort to control it. Ridiculous!

Great thermostat, lousy app
This is a poorly designed app. You should not have different functionality based on the orientation. This is confusing! It also takes forever just to find options like the fan. I don't understand why functions that used to be right on my thermostat are buried in this app. Please update with a more standard iPhone experience.

Works Like A Charm
Great unit. Installed for about a month. Not enough time to see how much money I'm saving, but it know us like a book now. Highly recommend this to anyone.

Great app - really easy to use. I didn't have a programmable thermostat before and am now saving a bundle. Of course you have to buy the nest to use this app so some will complain about the app... Ignore them.

Needs text alerts
Great product and app but it really needs the ability to send alerts to the app if temp falls below a set point. For example you are on vacation and your heat breaks in the middle of winter. Would be nice to get an alert on your app when the temp in your house is falling before your pipes freeze!!! Please consider adding this ability!
