So, right when you open the SmartThings app you are sent to the “Favorites” tab, and there you have this card showing the current weather conditions at the house location, which I admit can be very neat for a lot of people, but for me and a few others, it can be quite annoying because it’s UX is really bad.
There are 2 major problems with this card:
1 - The measurement unit is based on Samsung’s account location, which you cannot change, so if you want to change it you have to delete your Samsung Account and/or create a new one, which might not be a viable option for a lot of people for N reasons. Why can it be configurable, or at the very least, be based on the location’s address instead of the Samsung’s account address? We can set the sensors’ unit, but not this card’s, this doesn’t make any sense at all.
2 - You cannot disable it individually. The only way to hide this card is by disabling the “Show status information” option, but this option is very useful and contains a lot of important information from other devices (e.g security alerts and battery status), so not being able to disable it individually (or any other card, for that matter) is just plain bad UX.
These 2 issues alone are quite annoying, but together they lead to a very bad UX because we’re forced to either be greeted with a card showing the wrong temperature unit every time we open the app or, missing a lot of important information if we decide to hide this card to workaround the wrong unit.
Of course, this is not a major problem, but it certainly is something that affect’s the UX for a lot of people, and this should not be that hard to fix, so please, either allow us to change the temperature unit of this card, start basing it on the location’s address or allow us to disable it individually. Any of these changes would greatly improve the app’s UX.
And if anyone knows a workaround to either fix this card’s temperature unit or hide it individually, please let me know!
