App hasn’t worked for months.

Good App, but Needs Some Work!
I’ve been a dealer tech for about four years and this app came out a few years ago and makes life much easier for some customers. It’s easy to point to the Epson SureColor S series and point out the LCD display. HOWEVER, with this app you can take any iOS device and make it the control panel for this product. If you want a display the size of the phone you can have it! If you want a display the size of a 12” iPad Pro you can have it as well! It is a little slow, but like everything else, I’m sure Roland will keep improving as they always do!
Finally connected to our newly installed VG 540. The app required a firmware update on the printer, which is understandable. After installing the latest firmware the app still says the version we just installed isn't the right version. The 2 techs that did the install couldn't even get the printer to be discovered on their phone at all. Devs: I really want this app to work! Also, while you're tinkering, make the app alert me when a print is ready to be cut or needs my attention if it doesn't already (again I could never get it to work so I'm not sure what it does or doesn't do).
