I love the app I love the sprinkler controller.

Even though I love this app and this device, twice now in one week we have had two updates (thank you I think), but twice now I need to reconnect to my devices connection info has been lost and I’m starting over again. Please if your going to update it again, can you figure out how to update it with out losing my connections and forcing me to start over. Thank you.

Developer Response ,

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience you've been experiencing with the recent updates to our app. We understand how frustrating this must be, particularly when it involves having to re-enter your site settings and device connections.

The recent changes were due to a necessary upgrade in our web interface technology and a host change for our hybrid application. These steps were taken to ensure we continue to deliver a secure, efficient, and up-to-date user experience. Unfortunately, these changes required users to log in again and reconfigure their sites.

To avoid such issues in the future, we strongly recommend using our OpenSprinkler Cloud Sync feature. This feature allows you to securely store all your site data with your account. Should you need to log in again or reinstall the app, Cloud Sync will quickly restore all your site data, eliminating the need to reconfigure settings manually.

We deeply appreciate your feedback and your patience as we continue to improve our app. Our team is committed to making your OpenSprinkler experience as seamless as possible. Thank you for your understanding.

Odd UI, great engine

I am very pleased with the overall solution of OpenSprinker: price, packaging, hardware, support, quality, and being open. Regarding this app specifically, the scheduling engine and workflow are solid. The UI is a bit awkward, mainly due to the slide out and pop up menus. Like Pinterest, I dislike the way a floating dialog is too easily dismissed (and input lost) by tapping anywhere outside of its border. I wish this app followed iPhone UI standards and felt as solid as the scheduling engine and controller hardware.

Latest update broke connection

The latest update that I downloaded just a day or two ago has broken my connection with my system. It is one of the early build it yourself units running FW 1.8.3. I can connect to it from a browser on the same device, but not through the app any more. Passwords and addresses verified, but will not connect.

*** UPDATE ***
The latest update did fix the problem! Upgraded from 3 to 5 stars.

Developer Response ,

This should be fixed now, we apologize for the inconvenience caused. Please update to version 1.8.2. Thanks!
