Incredible is an understatement

I was hesitant to replace the Apple Airport Extreme Base Stations in my business as they have done their job. Unfortunately, I have way more WiFi devices that I needed to support and it was time for a commercial grade solution.
After a lot of research and taking to Linksys and Netgeae individually I decided to go with the Access Point and Managed POR switches that are cloud managed by their Insight Platform.
I couldn’t be happier. From setup to ease of use of the app. It has been an amazing experience.

Not impressed & it’ll cost ya

OK Netgear, people actually use their iPad horizontally not vertically. And some actually type either on the screen or with a keyboard and the keyboard is horizontal. OMG if its designed for iPad, at least test it on an actual iPad. Or even an iPhone for that matter. Think horizontal. My second issue is: REALLY? You are going to charge per device? OMG just another way to extract money from your loyal base. The third issue is the extreme labor intensive way to add each device. Seriously there is no option to have it search an existing, functioning network and you simply supply the password for all or each device? Unbelievable. And create another account/password and alternately use Facebook credentials as an alternative? Please think about IT security. On the positive side, the interface is very pretty. The layout from what I saw before I gave up was clear and appeared easy to work with. But I suspect very few will have the time/patience to set this up and then find themselves with another yearly/monthly $ draw from their assets. Netgear makes great products and this app, if fixed, should be FREE as it would encourage more purchases of their products.

Thank you for your input. We are working on improving the tablet support and the device onboarding flow for future versions of the app.

Not designed for iDevices

Or at least nobody bothered to test it. Couldn’t create a new account. Period. But along the way I fount hat I couldn’t even tap the create a new account link on an iPhone because the keyboard covers it an the is no scroll. If you have an account, fine. Otherwise, Tantalus.

So I switched to my iPad. Now there is enough room to see the link. But guess what? It doesn’t work. Seriously!

Developer Response ,

On the iPhone, you should be able to click Enter on the keyboard two times to skip email/password to see the "Create Account" link.
On the iPad, we would like to get more information on what didn't work for you. Can you please email us at so we can help? Thank you in advance.
