Solid. Would love a watch companion app.

The app has improved a lot in the last few releases. It’s easy to use and easy to understand at a glance. The “last 30 days” usage cost is handy, and the ability to now add a custom price limit at which you’ll get notified of price spikes is great.

The one thing I’d love to see if a Watch app, with a complication I can add to my watch face showing the current prices. I can see my solar generation with a glance at my wrist via my inverter software’s app , I’d love to be able to see the current price of buying and selling electricity back to the grid too.

Good potential but Needs improvement

Early days but big potential. Customisable alerts, interactive usage graphs and more data analysis options would be very helpful. Currently the app functionality is a bit limited as well as the ability so see things like account details and billing dates. I hope this will all be rolled out soon.

Another thing which I feel needs to be addressed. The wholesale price listed on the app is significantly higher than the AEMO 30 minute settlement price or even the 5 minute sport price. This price should show a breakdown of costs so we can understand what the charge is made up of. The network delivery charge and other components which are fixed costs should be made clear for example like a pie chart.

This should not be that hard to do as the data required to make an overall price is there, this is just exposing those individual figures which make up the overall price.

Sensational!

The Amber offer is truly amazing! For just $10 per month I get access to exactly the same wholesale rates that my previous retailer paid (and they added their retail markup to charge me more than DOUBLE what I am now paying). With the money I save I can now afford to get solar so I can look forward to eliminating my bill entirely! The APP gives me current, historical and future (predicted) pricing in 30 min increments with simple graphs to show all my usage. I work from home, so with this info it also allows me to get creative with my time of day usage. (Disclaimer: I was so impressed with Amber I approached them to become an Affiliate Partner to help spread the word.)
