Swift Command app
Have this app installed on iPhone and iPad for Bluetooth control when in our Swift caravan. App installation straightforward, but had to concentrate to follow instructions setting up Bluetooth. When near van Bluetooth is stable. Have made Swift aware of an anomaly of 1 hour in time displayed (BST vs GMT) when using app on an Apple device, compared to accessing on a Windows PC. Remote access over internet very useful for monitoring alarm incidents and battery condition, though ‘forgetting’ Login ID and Password can be tedious ! Developers have helped sort some teething issues I have reported, and I think this feature has a great potential if current glitches can be flagged & addressed. Also, some features which work OK on a Windows PC do not seem to work via iPad / iPhone app.
Swift Command App
Very easy to use and simple way to control your Caravan both on and off site that well deserve five stars. However the instructions for how to install, use and control the Caravan systems especially the heating are dreadful so the rating here is zero stars. Swift need to re-write the instructions and get them proof checked by real Caravan users. In my case even the Caravan dealership had to make several phone calls to the supplier of the app before they could fathom out the instructions.
Bought a new swift this year and the app is very hit or miss. The heating and hot water function is quite confusing at first, would be much better to separate these functions, just like some smart home heating apps. As soon as you leave the app you have to reconnect, and when using the app to monitor your towing and alko systems it doesn’t stay connected to your vehicle unless you have the app open for your whole journey, even then it disconnects sometimes. Principal is good and was a selling point to me but it does need some work soon.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
