Steady and Reliable
I've made a 180ยบ change in this app and the entire system. I now have two Nest devices in house, one Nest I, and one Nest II. I was having original connectivity issues with my first....the Nest I. I had a heating zone fail this winter and decided on one more Nest to keep an eye on that zone remotely....hopefully. After installing my new Nest II, I was still having connectivity issues with the Nest I. I then realized I had seen a "reset" in the settings menu. Once it was reset, it has been rock solid. Both devices, rock solid now for a month....just amazing and just a joy to check and adjust the temp from afar, from work, while on the way home, etc. The statistical data that is compiled and emailed to you each month, top notch and informative. The app display of current weather conditions, and zone temps, very cool and accurate. Good job Nest! We control the two Nest devices through 2 iphones, 1 ipad, 1 laptop and 1 desktop computer...all flawless. Initial Review.....Whether attempting control through iPad or iPhone, response it slow, and have intermittent question mark displays. When checking the device, it shows "connected" in disagreement with the App display. This is the most important feature of this device. With no remote web connectivity....we all could have purchased a much cheaper programmable thermostat. It seems the issue is with their server control....we are at the mercy of "Nest" IT control....not a pretty thought.

Be patient, this app and t-stat are great
I love this thermostat. Nothing beats being able to turn on the heater or AC from bed!

Great thermostat but weak app
Not very intuitive to use. The calendar is a bit difficult. All options should be available regardless if viewing mode and why can't you change the temperature by turning the thermostat on the app like you do with the real one? Why up and down buttons? Not very consistent. I'm hoping for an overhaul on this app. Version 4.0 soon?

App is good enough but could better
The thermostat is outstanding. The app does what it's supposed to do but I agree with other comment re: needs more options on the home screen. The energy profile cannot be stretched horizontally in order to see the items that are underneath other other items. It often does not show the info of the user that made temp changes on iPhone or iPad. I have not had any connection issues. My router is the one that came with AT&T U-verse but right now I don't know the make/model info. I did not have to do any port forwarding or change any firewall settings.

More than expected
I am still surprised that I am finding new features almost daily with the Nest devise and software. I wish all companies made certain that the desktop/mobile/device software worked as smoothly as Nest has. I would highly recommend this product. It is as advertised. My non-Nest installer mentioned it would be good if there was access to wiring diagrams the way other manufacturers provide.

Trouble connecting to nests
For some reason this app always has trouble connecting to my thermostats.
