Ratings and Reviews
Great App, bad update
This is a great way to interface with my home theater gear. I have the ability to make a remote that can do any sequence of things I want it to with all my components. The programming takes time, but your own custom design is well worth the effort. This app has been flawless until the most recent update. Now when the project loads there is nothing but a black screen. I recently did a restore on my 2g touch and synced an older version of this app. Everything loaded and functioned correctly. As soon as I updated back to the current version I am stuck with a black screen again.
Get the facts before complaining
The app works well. I would suspect the people who are complaining (Like the person who doesn't know what Cedia, Custom Electronic Design & Installation Association is) just don't know how to use/program the app. Can it control your whole house? Yes, if programmed properly. Can you just install the app and run it and have it control the house (or anything for that matter) without your programmer? No. It's part of a complete system and as such it needs to be added to the system. Now, on to the "locks up" people; In the settings on your iPhone, iPod touch, you will find a setting for the Crestron app. If you have it set to "Auto Reconnect" it will connect as soon as you launch the app. If you launch the app and the app can not connect to your system, it will keep trying until it times out and then the app closes. If you use the app, like I do with both inside and outside the house addresses, fand I try to reconnect to my internal address while outside the house, it doesn't work. In fact, the first couple of times I thought I had to resync to get my iPod touch working again. Once I realized (ok, someone told me) to turn off the auto reconnect, It has worked flawlessly, period
What more do you want?
Works perfectly, easy to use. I can switch my A/V sources just fine.. Don't know what the other reviewer is talking about. If you were promised that the app can do something it doesn't, take it up with your dealer. This app does exactly what it's billed to, and it's up to the programmer to make it do that.
Keep in mind that this app is designed for remote monitoring and basic control of your system when you're *AWAY*. it's not meant to be a touchpanel replacement. So, if you want to gripe about not doing what it's not even supposed to, go right ahead, it just makes you look silly.
There's a second app coming out soon that IS designed for local system control. It's on the Crestron website.
