Revised Review
My earlier review was 1 star and a recommendation not to purchase. I made 3 attempts to reinstall so the program would run. After 3 more attempts it finally installed and now runs a flawlessly as the free version on my iPhone and iPad. I would recommend now without reservation, great program.

Great product but app is lacking
Most of the most used features are buried. Having to turn my phone sideways to get the home and away option is clumsy. And "at a glance" is funny name for something I'd like to have at a glance but unfortunately I have to tap into several menus to get to and there its confusingly under "Settings." Why Would I not be able to tap the house on the home screen switch between home and away and swipe to the side to see "at a glance?"

I love the app BUT
as some Someone mentioned the UI is horrible you have to click(touch) just to access the panel to change the temp temperature. The info like humidity and current temperature are buried on the iPhone. The home screen is cute but a complete waste is real estate. The control on the iPhone does't even match the ui on the thermostat !! At least add the optional scroll wheel to replicate the nest ui

Soooo much wasted screen real estate
It blows my mind how horribly designed the UI is on both the iPad and iPhone. It's way too difficult to see basic things like current temp and humidity, which should be on the default view. Instead, you have to click on the thermostat, then settings, then "at a glance". If its "at a glance" info, why would you bury it so deep in the UI? Please use the screen real estate. Don't just make a big open space with no info and require three clicks to get any info. And put the settings in portrait mode! Requiring landscape to do anything in the app makes no sense either. Come on. It's not that hard to design such simple UI elements.

Great Product...
I've installed 4 of the Nest 2.0 thermostats in the last week. Each one took less than 20 minutes total (including wall repairs) to install. They connected effortlessly to the internet and thus far have never disconnected or been unreachable by the iOS apps. Occasionally, the app hangs when launched, but quitting and restarting the app always works (this is an app bug, not a connection problem). I concur with others on the iPhone landscape mode thing... dumb. You need to make Away mode accessible from portrait mode and you need each thermostat icon to display both the set temp and current room temp (without having to tap the icon). I don't see why you can't just include all the menus in portrait mode as well. I'm still giving your product 5 stars because the primary functions of internet connectivity and "learning" work and work well. Love the Away function. I can press Away and it sets all of my thermostats for my Home location away at the same time. I wish I knew more about how the thing actually works (sensors, how the thermostats work together, set temp vs target temp time). I think a user / discussion forum on your website would be a good idea. I also love the Energy page. You can see your percentage of daily usage on a timeline and total. I would like to see more analytics as time goes on. The ability to have reports and more of them is a good idea. Great product with much more potential.

Don't Buy Thermostat Until App Connectivity is Fixed
People should not buy the Nest thermostat until internet connectivity issue is fixed. The ability to remotely control your heating and air conditioning is such a large part of Nest features and product differentiation, that having unreliable connectivity is a good reason not to buy… until it's fixed.
