Mr. @tyler Lange! Where is our iPhone update! You are in our naughty boy list… :wink:


My understanding is that our iOS release is pending approval by Apple. Their review process is closed for the holidays. We expect our app to be approved and released shortly after that.

Great update. Still doesn’t have the ability in SmartSetup to add from “My Apps” / SmartApps published only for me though. The Android app has a whole other category for those after “More”. The Windows Phone app only shows “Things,” “Alerts,” “Actions,” and “More.”

Hmm… Somehow Google was able to push their update to iOS on December 22nd. Have they greased some palms at Apple?

woohoo just got one for xmas and this update came just in time for me to start playing with it ! :slight_smile: thanks guys keep up the good work !

Neat, thanks for the update! Unfortunately the “Things” screen still crashes every time. Seems to be because I have custom devices. I hope that can get fixed soon! I’ve never been able to use the app because of that but I do use it to lock/unlock my doors (the doors & locks section at least works). However, it would be great to control my other devices!

I’m thinking of buying a few cheap windows phones and using them as remotes… at $29, they’re cheaper than most z-wave remotes out there! (

When I try to update devices on the Windows Phone app. I get the “unexpected error message” a majority of the time. Also, There is no way that I can see to update the icon image for a Mobile Presence device. If I do it on another device it seems to stop working.

Exact same behavior here, not able to rename a mobile presence device, no way to update the images. Hopefully they are aware and working on a fix?

There is clearly some room for improvement in the Windows Phone app. With v1.0.4 of the Windows Phone app, I’ve seen:

  • Stability issues - launching the app can crash one or two times before a successful launch (BTW, I only have 2 Things connected right now)

  • Some functionality missing - if you read the online “help”/etc. there a capabilities missing from the Windows Phone app

  • Bugs with setting names or icons for Things - I happen to have an Android tablet and I had no issue doing this on Android,

Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate the fact that SmartThings decided to support Windows Phone and this, in fact, is why I’ve purchased their hub and some of their things. I understand that Windows Phone is a distance 3rd mobile OS, but I hope SmartThings puts an ongoing effort to stabilize, improve and support their Windows Phone app with feature parity.

I would concur. the app looks very interesting, but I also have crashes when changing the name of my Mobile Presence device from my Lumia 930 (Developer Preview). Are there any work-arounds?
