Ratings and Reviews
Ok App -- but needs work
The app functions pretty well and seems quicker and more responsive than the Insteon for Hub app. However, (IMHO) the graphic interface is pretty lame, unnecessarily colorless and boring and does not make a good use of screen real estate. The real bummer for me is no support for my cameras -- which Insteon for Hub does quite well.
Just installed on my phone. It is super easy to setup. It’s quick and responsive and does everything as advertised. Not flashy but I’m sure that’s why it performs so well. Great job!!!!
Why use another app if colors and style are the same. ...
Developer Response ,
We’re sorry to hear that you’re unhappy with our design choices for Homeboy. We intentionally created Homeboy to stand apart from the manufacturer’s app and to feel more at home on your iOS devices. We selected bright colors, bold text, and modern icons specifically to differentiate from them! We’d love to hear more from you through our support channel at https://homeboycontrol.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/requests/new.
