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.

Great thermostat, mediocre app
Connecting to my thermostat via the app has been sporadic at best. When it works it's great, but failing to connect 25% of the time is unacceptable. The big selling point in the thermostat is the ability to adjust and track remotely - Nest had better get their act together ASAP!

THERMOSTAT DISCONNECTED
Intermittent (?) symbol can't control thermostat!! The Nest tells me that is not connected to the Internet and get when I go to thermostat and it confirms it is connected so there's something wrong with the app.

Poor connectivity
I have 3 nest thermostats in my home and frequently 2 if them will be "disconnected" from the app even though they are connected to wifi. If this issue continues I will return the nest.

Now Broken
After a few months of use, Nest can no longer connect consistently. Also there's no setting to control just the fan.
