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.

Great for your business
I would like to say this is a great app and t-stat. I am a contractor that has installed 10 in one house for my client. My client is the one that told me about it. He lives in Hong Kong and has a house in New York so it's great for him to keep tabs on his heat cost which is all radiant floor heat. I recently installed one in my rental that I pay for the heat so to the fact that they would leave the heat on 90 and leave for a couple days. So it's nice that I can monitor it and save myself money. I think this is the greatest thing for home owners and business owners keep up the good work.

Great Nest T-Stat and app's.
Bought the Nest t-stat and got the app for my iPhone and iPad today. Everything works well and very easy install. My Asus router works great with this. I'd ignore the negative comments. There are people out there that can't plug in a TV or Fan, need to stay away and continue to use their manual thermostat !!!

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.
