Ratings and Reviews
Why does the app persistently lose the password
The refreshed ui is an improvement. At least now we can see the battery level. But the constant loss of the password, unlike any other app on my phone, is extremely annoying. I had to change it from a complex password to a simple one to make this more useful, at the expense of security. Hey, this is a lawnmower app, not a banking app—there is no good security reason for inconveniencing users every couple of weeks. And you are encouraging weaker passwords.
Please make it possible to start the mower from the app when it now requires a manual start from the dock. I don’t see any good reason for this gross inconvenience.
Good app but needs more
Overall works good as long as your mower doesn’t lose connection. Would be great if Automower could also be set to Wi-Fi as most home Wi-Fi cover the area around the house that gets mowed.
Also, scheduling needs some rework for ease of use and real use cases. The main use case that cannot be done is setting number of days between mowing. Every other or every third day cannot be scheduled when you can only do a special day of week time based schedule. One would want both to be possible. Also, it would be nice to set temporary scheduling for things like weather tomorrow so don’t mow.
Machine maintenance: would be great to have a basic timer that tracks number of hours mowed since last service for things like cleaning and blade changes.
Incomplete app and functions
The app does a few things good like you can start your mower and set timers much easier than on the machine. However, there are several simple things missing. Chief among them is any sound to play when there is an issue. You get a banner but no actually audible or vibration alert so unless you look at your phone you don’t know that anything is wrong. You also can’t start the mower when in weather timer.
