Needs more peripheral options
My thermostat is in a remote area of the house which does not allow the algorithms to work to their full potential. Also I have one thermostat for a two floor condo (upstairs). The downstairs is always freezing because the nest judges it's temperature by the upstairs instead of downstairs. What I would like to see nest come out with is an extender of sorts that you can plop on the wall say downstairs in my case. This would accomplish two things: 1) would allow my nest to know when I am home or not (and thus talk to main unit) 2) would allow me to tell my nest to care about the temperature downstairs instead if upstairs (make sense?) Thanks for listening!

Needs Intermittent Fan Option
The is just about perfect in every way. So much improved over our last Smart Thermostat that comparison means little. Easy to read. Intuitive. Precise. Detailed history of energy use day-by-day and hour-by-hour if I want it. I could go on. And all of this is controlled from my iPhone (or iPad) from my car on the Interstate or a Mediterranean cruise liner! How cool is that? But we need an intermittent fan setting so we can filter the air throughout the day without manually turning the fan on and off (which Nest does permit). And it occurs to me that such a feature is a trivial exercise for the Nest firmware and software. How complicated can it be to add a timer to the Fan-On controller with 25% 50% 75% options? Come on guys! Let's see it in the next release!

Hot Product
I'm a DIY person and found I was able to install the t-stat, connect it to WiFi, download this app, and start heating my house in 30 minutes. Programming a schedule through the app took just about as long but much of that time was due to my indecisiveness in deciding what time and temperature I wanted the t-stat to function at. The t-stat, iPhone app, and web interface all work as advertised. Now the device looks so cool ❄it looks and feels like it should be able to do everything my smartphone does. Simply it adjusts the temp from anywhere I have a signal. I really appreciate the ability to put the tStat in away mode, leave for the weekend, and restart the furnace a few hours before getting home. I installed the Nest in my house less than 30 days ago and am patiently waiting for the end if the month to see the energy report that Nest says will be emailed to me at the end of the month. One feature I would like to see is the ability to see the energy report and usage stats through the web portal/app anytime I want.

Usage
Both the thermostat and the app work fine. One problem came when we had a power outage in the neighborhood. Thermostat and app acted funny and after a few hours I realized that some thing was wrong. A call to customer service produce instant result after the assistant talked me through "reset" on the thermostat "push" dial. Been working great ever since.

Slow Communication
Communication between app and thermostat has become very slow since updating to iOS 6.1... whatever. The app also routinely indicates that the thermostat is not connected to the wifi network. By connecting through a web browser (on or off the same network) I can confirm that the thermostat is indeed connected. This has always been an issue.

Good Concept But Not There Yet
Pros: Easy to install. Convenience to change temperature from anywhere. Great design. Cons: Thermostat is off by 3 to 4 degrees. Not acceptable. Doesn't turn on when it drops below the heat set point. It takes 1-2 degrees before it turns on. They need a great software engineer not just a good one. Customer service keeps telling you it's "learning". Please! Early adopters are already tech savvy.
