The new Samsung app has so much wasted space on top. I am looking for an app that will allow me to control basic lights, fan, thermostat quickly without scrolling a lot and with a clean interface. Plus, it will have a widget or iPhone to control the same basic devices.
I have a lot of devices on Smartthings and I can use the Samsung official app to set automations and such but I am looking for another app that will allow me to turn on/off basic devices such as lights, fan, thermostat quickly without 10 clicks or a lot of scrolling. I am talking about only the top 6-10 used devices.
I thought the Google Home app (with Smartthings linked) would have some potential but that falls short too. The advantage is that the interface looks nice, the device turn on and off quickly (the Samsung Smarthings app has a waiting indicator lag which I don’t see on Google Home app so thats the irony).
But Google Home app also falls short at other places such as if I remove some devices from the room, they come back after the refresh (as a workaround I can move un-needed devices to a room “Other” in smarthings first), the rooms can’t be moved up/down (as a workaround I can rename the rooms 1-Bedroom, 2-Living Room, etc) and as far as I can tell there is no iPhone widget.
Are there any other [better] options? I am looking for options with at most 2 clicks, open the app (first click), see the top 10 devices on the first page without scrolling (or very less scrolling), click to turn on/off (second click). The classic app had everything I wanted (although, I think the widget got removed recently?).
