Could Be Better

I was so thrilled to get my Drift. I love to watch it create and the programmable light is a great touch.
Regarding the snarky review about turning the table off, "...download the app...", the table can be turned off by pressing the button above the plug (long press for off, short press for on.
I was very turned off by the recent demand for unnecessary identifying information in order to use the table. This is just a marketing ploy for HomeMedics to sell information of Drift owners.
I'm really disappointed by the lack of new designs; just in time for Father's Day but no Mother's Day. Another brand has thousands of designs, adding new ones all the time. I've had my table for almost a year and I've gotten 1 update with new designs.
I know HomeMedics can do better. I understand it is not a tech company, but it's not brain surgery either.

Xmas Gift

I bought this for my hubby and gifted it to him at Christmas. I thought he could bring it to his office and it would be a neat conversation piece. But I really love it, too. So he decided to leave it at home so we can all enjoy it! And we do!
I’ve played with the colors and we change the design daily. (we set up a schedule- it turns off at 10:30pm and wipes the old design. At 5am it turns on and creates the new design we picked the night before. When we’re up at 6am, the new design is ready. Very cool feature). If we don’t really like how the design played out on the Drift, we just open the app and pick a new one. Very simple!
I have the iPhone 14 Pro. And I’ve never had an issue with the Drift app. My husband has a Samsung Galaxy (not sure on the model). His phone is a few years old. And he has no problem with the Drift app.
We love ours 😊

Pretty decent but needs more documentation

I’ve had my Drift for a few months now.

I think the app is pretty decent. It has a nice, clean UI, that’s pretty easy to navigate. Which is why it surprises me that I’m so confused by the “Schedule” settings.

I don’t understand what the dots on the days of the week mean.

I don’t understand why I can only select one day, and then there’s a checkbox that says, “Use these times on all selected days”? Like I know what it should mean but I don’t understand how it makes sense in the context of this UX functionality.

I don’t understand what “Keep sleep mode active at all times” means. What even is sleep mode? Does that mean the device goes to “sleep” rather than “turns off” outside the periods of the schedule? (And if that’s correct, I only just figured that out as I was typing this review.) But there’s no indication of what it means anywhere to be found.

I can’t find any documentation on the “Schedule” functionality. In the app or on the Homedics website.

I will say, the drift turns on at the time it’s supposed to turn on, and it does turn off at the time it’s supposed to turn off. So the feature works! I just wish I understood what that whole screen actually means.

So if the devs have any documentation about that feature, I would please love to see it!

Thanks for leaving a review, and apologies on the timeliness of our response! Glad to hear you generally have a good experience with the app, and we hear your feedback on the Schedule feature. UI / UX improvements to the drift app are slated for this year!
