Locking thermostat/history view issues
I usually...actually NEVER write reviews but I care enough about this to do so. I don't have a problem with my NEST device itself, it does all I want it to do & pretty well I might add, it locks the way I like, goes away when needed, follows the schedule I set for it...it's a champ in my book! The app on the other hand... A couple of issues I am really starting to have with the app. I would LOVE to view the current day audit/history of any activity within the app or thermostat to see when temperatures were changed. Also with the history display, I would like to see a better way of dictating who the change was made by. When I create a schedule & a temp change is made the audit will show the name of my device therefore I know it CAN...would really love for it to show the name of the device for any manual adjustments within the app or on the physical thermostat since the all have names. There's no point in learning someone's name just to refer to them as "hey you" correct? I would like to see the same with our history audits, there's no point in naming things if they won't show in the audits. Another thing, the password protection on the thermostat itself, I'm fine with that. I'm fine with the 5 degree of range permission, that's all just great...however...this password does not carry on through the app. Anyone with the app can make changes to the temperature & bypass the password prompt. In today's world where more & more people have the Internet & smart devices it's possible more than one person may have access to the app/website for their thermostat & may attempt to adjust the temperature there just because they can...and with this password bypass they can change it as freely as they want with no restriction at all. I feel that is a direct flaw in the setup, I realize the password is a device lock now...we should be given a temperature lock however since that's what we're actually locking on the device. I'm not disappointed with the app completely, I feel the app has a lot of potential & hopefully will live up to it. For that reason I will give 3 stars for now. Let me control my NEST the way I would like & it would easily be worth 5 stars for me JUST because of the control I would have over my great thermostat.

Used to love it, now I don't!!!!!
Ever since the update, I am constantly losing connection, after wasting time on the phone with customer service they blamed it on my router, after never having any problems a year before the update. I want a refund!!!!!!

Effective app
Quality over substance... My nest has been operational for about 9 months now with 100% reliability. This app has a clean interface, simple controls and gets the job done.

Turn side ways to turn off nest?
The app needs to have full functionalities for both portrait and landscape orientation. Currently it requires you to turn the phone side ways in order to access menu to turn nest off. Many people have orientation lock and it's a hassle to have to unlock it just to go back to the app to turn side ways That's not a user friendly design
