Love the concept, potential for more data
The nest is completely unparalleled, so one cannot complain too much! An amazing tool for saving energy and money, it makes me wish everything in my house was collecting and giving data and hooked up to my mobile devices and the web. However, there are some small (hopefully simple) additions to this app and the reporting that would be very useful. When one is looking at the energy usage data, it would be great if the following information was provided: •The actual temperature when your furnace or AC is not working (I'd like to see how low or high it went while I was away, for example). •Energy comparison for how much money would be saved with the furnace or AC running at certain degree levels overnight and while gone (that is, to compare if the amount of energy used to bring the temperature back up or down when one returns or when the day begins is more or less than if a more comfortable temperature had just been maintained). •What the temperature outside was (to better understand changes in heating/cooling hours). •Comparisons with other homes / usage in the area (much like our energy company provides; best understood in percentage increase or decrease on certain days). Thank you for an amazing product and a nice app to go with it! I think the app has more potential, however!

App problems
I also spent a lot for this product because they touted the ability to control your thermostat from your phone. The ability to connect to nest via the app is terrible! Only bought one nest and won't buy another till they fix this problem. Don't buy a nest until you read better reviews on this app!

Not Happy
Not happy with the reliability of this app and it connecting with the Nest. I spent a lot of this and it doesn't work most of the time. I tried calling their help and got nowhere. There has to be a problem with the app. Please update!!!

Too minimalistic
Helpful things to see are buried in menus an not available on main screen. Actual temp at each thermostat should be shown, as well as humidity. Outside temp is there, but should also include humidity as well. The Nests display should have just a few things more on them as well. Time, actual temp, humidity, outside temp and humidity too, could all fit as text on the display around the edge (similar to the menu). Those few simple things will make it 5 star. ::::::::::::: After a couple of months use, a few more comments. - first, the big disappointment. You must connect through the nestservers to make adjustment wirelessly. No direct connect. This puts us at the mercy of Nest. -- Case in point. My wife often sets the temp before she leaves work, so the house will be warmed up when she arrives. She calls me almost every day, because she has "?" on both thermostats, and she can't change them. I then spend the next half hour troubleshooting them to find out why they lost connection. Pulling the unit off the wall seems to be the only sure thing to make it go back online. This is serious, breach of contract. - second, app isn't intuitive. Temp changes on the settings page are difficult to set. It you want to clear out an entire weeks programming, you must go in and delete each setting on each day.

Disconnected
Worked great for 3 months...nothing changed in my home, same router, same iPhone, but does not work all of a sudden. Web support for this issue leaves a lot to be desired. Please update soon or I will stop recommending this device to family and colleagues.
