Ratings and Reviews
I cannot believe there has been no updates in 10 months for as bad as this app and system is. It’s a technology driven world and this system still runs on Silverlight and only Internet Explorer. The portal is hard to navigate. I was told by a VP that when they got purchased well over a year ago it would get better. Well he will not respond to my emails and it is no better today.
Worst App to Date
The title sums up my experiences in using this app.
Cyber Rain demands $500 for their cloud ready controller. The app can only turn stations on and off; you cannot use the app to program stations or run other features. Aside from doing practically nothing, the app was unable to effect a simple cancellation operation using the button provided. The cloud software is In turn limited as it require support of Silverlight., so this is pretty much the only way to use an iPhone with CR. In the 100 plus apps I've downloaded and used, this one has to count as the worst, yet.
Works but very limited functionality
I keep waiting for this app to be improved, but the manufacturer of Cyber-Rain hasn't added any additional functionality since I purchased their cloud controller several years ago. I see newer and cheaper devices coming on the market now. This app is useful, but only for one-time adding of 1-30 minutes of watering time to a station or for troubleshooting the system while you are outside with the sprinklers. Also this app is designed in a vertical format for the iPhone only. It would be helpful to have an iPad version that would work in landscape format as well. I'd like to see more functions added and also allow changing watering times and schedules that would update the master schedule on the cloud server as well.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
