Amazing Smart Home App

This is one of the best products and accompanying apps I’ve used in a long time; and most importantly, my life and time are enhanced by this little Roomba.

We are still deciding a name for our Roomba, but we love that we can creatively command our Roomba with her unique name with our Alexa.

Contrary to some of the other reviews we read for this app, we found the app is actually very user friendly. Connecting our Roomba to the Internet was straightforward; the graphics are very cute and the professional videos explain all the steps. It’s really one of the best end user training processes in an app I’ve seen. And if we had issues, their help section is pretty detailed (not that we’ve had issue). We were also able to link multiple user accounts to the same Roomba. So my girlfriend and I can both interact with the Roomba and not share a password.

Some of the cool features we already enjoy is the maps we see after every completed clean (we have a Roomba 960), the real-time updates in what our Roomba is doing as it is doing it, the customization of a schedule for every day of the week, and the ease of using the app for what it is meant to do - get the Roomba to start and stop cleaning.

As a tech person, what I find rewarding is that it performs firmware version updates over WiFi to the Roomba itself. So the actual robot software, and not just the app, are improving over time

Great job iRobot! We are very happy with your product.

Not bad but needs update badly

I can only justify 4 stars for this begin with,there is a definite problem with part of the WiFi connection...I have an IPhone XS Max running iOS 12..I also have the newest Roomba I7 +... this is a very expensive unit and one should expect a flawless app to go with it!
The unit will connect with your home network and will function as it’s supposed to...but when you use the “locate” function says “this function does not work unless your Roomba is on the same network “..I have tried deleting the unit from my network and re-installing it but always with the same result!
Also... the next problem is with the mapping takes at least 2 full training runs to map my apartment and then I can name the rooms etc.. I can tell it to clean one room and it will work once! Then all I get from that point on is the maps will reappear in a grayed out form and you will not be able to select any room at all for the unit to can edit,rename, and save a new configuration but you still can’t tell it to clean any of the rooms!
This all tells me that the app is flawed! I’ve also read many of these reviews and others have the same problem as me! Again...when one pays this much for a Roomba one would expect these problems would be solved! Please update this app to work on all smartphones!

Wish the care & maintenance was better integrated

Love that I can use the app to adjust maps and cleaning areas and start/stop my roomba. But as someone who’s terrible about maintenance, I wish the app did more to remind me of those things. There’s a notification center in the app, and for as long as I’ve used the app there’s never beenANYTHING in there. But today I was just randomly looking through the help section and come across something labeled “care and maintenance” and opening it I find there are all these tasks which are apparently overdue. Why would that be in the Notification Center? What’s t Notification Center for if not that kind of stiff? Instead I guess I have to regularly go to the help section, then go to the “care and main.” section, THEN see what tasks are needed or coming up. And seemingly no notification for filter needing to be replaced. And I know I know, I could just task myself with those duties and not depend on the app. I just don’t understand WHY the app wouldn’t notify me about those things. It’s clearly tracking the robots use, as well as some cleaning needs, so why not just throw in reminders instead of making me dig around the app to find them (or in the case of filters not have them at all)? I’m spoiled by technology, so come on roomba, spoil me a little more with some reminders!
