Worst design ever
When are you guys going to realize that making us rotate the device to gain additional info is nothing short of terrible design. It's like you discovered the accelerometer API and now you feel forced to use it. Redesign the entire app, including the terrible update to the temperature gauge. The only reason you get 2 stars is because the thermostat itself is great. Too bad the app is a design nightmare.

Lost Fan Functionality
Most recent software update removed the ability to easily control the cooling/heating system fan from the iPad and the thermostat itself. One can no longer simply turn the system fan on and off to circulate the house air. At the thermostat, a time period now needs to be chosen to run the fan, and this time period cannot be changed by the Nest App on the iPad. At night, I had used the iPad to turn the fan on and off from my upstairs bedroom (using my iPad) based on my comfort level upstairs. With my 2 story house, control of the fan to help equalize the temperature is a MUST; now I have to go downstairs to turn off the fan. Hey Nest programmers, I do not need a big brother taking away the choices I want to make about my energy usage. I consider this change to be an inconvenience and an absolutely inconsiderate move to make without giving the user a choice on how a product that I own can be used. I am now shopping for a new thermostat to replace my Nest thermostat. I cannot recommend this product as I do not know what poorly devised and executed changes will be made to the Nest thermostat and App in the future.

Awesome App & Product
I'm not sure what all the fuss is about. The product works great, and this app does exactly what I want it to do. It's awesome you can change a lot of the settings, and you can even see your city's current weather. 5/5⭐

A step Backwards
The new app on iPhone is not user friendly. When trying to change the temperature it jumps wildly up and down degrees. Keep the old one. If you ungraded w/out reading the reviews like I did, revert to the old .ipa Delete the new .ipa first, then go find the old .ipa in the trash and put back in iTunes. You'll be happier with the old app.

Changing temp UI
Please, please bring back the old way of changing the temp. Love my Nest and the app, but the new way is way more difficult. Why fix something that wasn't broken?
