The “update” renders an already bad app totally worthless

Just a few weeks ago the app stopped allowing me to log in, saying password was wrong (I never changed it). Then I chose “forgot password” and was told I would get an email with the password reset link. Nope. Never arrived, not in spam, just didn’t happen at all. Yesterday I noticed an update for the app was available on the AppStore and thought “Oh good, they’re going to fix it now!” Nope. The app won’t even load beyond a big blue Skydrop logo which just remains on screen indefinitely.

I’ve been a Skydrop customer for over 5 years. The system has never worked better than when I first started using it. Weather accuracy was never good. It could be raining and Skydrop would still schedule watering as if no rain in the forecast (or even at the moment). My lawn has died in spots and I’ve reseeded more times than I’d like to remember because of spotty watering performance.

I believe the company is going out of business. If you’re looking for a smart sprinkler controller, look elsewhere. Don’t be fooled by the fancy display and pretty lighted ring. This system is crap, and the app is now useless.

I can accept their honesty now! Changed my rating.

I have had the Skydrop now for a couple years! It was not the cheapest product to purchase. They just did an update to their current app and took away too many of the features that I used every single day for the past few years! I now understand why the company needs to charge a fee to keep it going! I was not happy at first but ok with it now. Here is a bit of the email..
“We sincerely apologize for this unwelcome news. Our hope is that our customers will see the value in the service and be willing to contribute to the ongoing costs of the system. We’ve also decided to disable, for now, the option to pay the yearly fee with an in-app purchase. We want to avoid the situation where the company accepts money for services they are unable to deliver.
Thank you for your passion and support of Skydrop.”
I wish they would’ve been upfront from the beginning. I’m changing from a 1 to a 4 because they changed, apologized and are trying to be honest and transparent as far as I can tell.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your understanding and support. As is evidenced by this whole episode, engineers are terrible at marketing. We should have been more transparent from the start.

Can’t beat the savings!!!

I checked 6 years back before my sky drop. My water bill in the summer (so cal) was $200 plus a month to keep the grass green. After getting the Skydrop, it dropped considerably as low $116 in August!!! Of course cost has risen but I checked the last 2 summers and it still has not exceeded $160 month. Remember I’m only talking about 1 months bill, so the savings has been several hundreds since getting the Skydrop in 2015. People are upset about $2/month. This is a no brainer. And I will also say their customer support is 5 Star. When I have had technical issues in the past, they took care of it.

Come on people, they have provided a service that for free for years, and I can only assume that now the programming will equate to greater savings both monetarily and for our environment.

It’s amazing people will spend thousands for an iPhone or Apple TV device, and then spend hundreds more for all the subscriptions required. This isn’t a new concept by any means.
