Supports will respond eventually

Make sure you physically enter “http://“ before your server ip address. Modern browsers have made us lazy. I didn’t do this and struggled figuring out why it wouldn’t connect. Emailed support and heard back a few days later with that suggestion and wouldn’t ya know it works great now. Since I haven’t used it long I can’t possibly rate it 5 stars yet - but so far it’s fast very clean UI and I’m diggin it.

Looking forward to this maturing

So, this app Is still a little rough around the edges. I haven’t used it extensively (there isn’t that much to it) but adding my Homebrisge took more effort than expected.
For example. It asks for the IP address. I typed in a host name but it didn’t want to take it. Then I typed the IP address (as it asked for) and it didn’t take that either. To get it to recognize, you have to prepend http://<ip-address> so it is a weird mix between URL and IP. Then, adding my user and password weren’t taking and I eventually figured out that it doesn’t support logging in with two-factor authentication. I added a special account without 2FA just for it, and it worked.
Beyond that, it looks good. I look forward to improving my review as it matures.

Almost Perfect - Some suggestions provided

This App is great and much faster/easier to use to update your homebridge and see status info than having to login into Homebridge. However a few small improvements would make it perfect:
1 - Provide Notifications when Homebridge has an update pending and specify the type (Plugin, Node.JS, System, etc...)
2 - When performing a plugin update, provide the developer's new version summary, so one knows what changes to expect from the update.
3 - Provide a Top Toolbar control icon that changes to indicate when there is an update, and allows for easy updates without opening the main App.
4 - Provide an option to automatically update plugins, HomebridgeUI or Node.JS using a preset schedule and notify of results.
Looking forward to new versions...
