this thread is intended only as a listing of specific differences between the two apps, not for complaints, suggestions, discussions of design philosophy, bug reports, questions about migration, joke memes or anything else. Just individual feature differences. We originally used the abbreviation STSC for “SmartThings (Samsung Connect)”, but that never caught on, so now we are calling it the V3 app since it came out with the V3 hub. The V3 app is changing rapidly, so feel free to edit this as needed.
The official knowledgebase FAQ is at the following link. Read it.
The “how to” official articles for the V3 app are at the following link:
There are a lot of individual official how to articles for the V2 app at the official support site, but you could start with the following link. Look for the ones marked “SmartThings classic.”
If you aren’t sure which app you are using now, here’s the FAQ for that:
Community discussion thread for all the various complaints, suggestions, discussions of design philosophy, etc. that you are not going to add to this thread is at the following link:
It doesn’t matter whether you put one post per feature different or one post with multiple feature differences, whatever you like. Just remember that things are changing rapidly.
if you can’t figure out which app you should be using, ask in the community discussion thread, not this thread. Seriously, this thread is only to be a listing of differences because all the other threads become so overrun with all those other comments that it’s really hard to find just the simple list. So that’s what this FAQ is for.
You can thank me later.
