Ratings and Reviews
Liked it at first, starting to have issues
Ok, I have contacted the makers of this app several times on Facebook and have received responses although they have been slow to respond. Now I am having issues where I have remotes created for my iPhone and my iPad. The exact assignments for each and every device are programmed into the different remotes, yet I am having inconsistent results. Some devices work on the iPhone but do not work on the iPad and vice versa. This is crazy. I have changed names thinking that MAYBE it’s a cache issue. Who knows. I have asked the makers to allow the end user to clear the cache on their servers, but I haven’t received an answer to that question. If not for these issues, this would be a 5 star app. I even offered to help troubleshoot with logs, or whatever they need, but NO RESPONSE.
Great App for 'Power Users'
First. Given the opportunity, I would give this App a 4.25/5 rating. When the Developer corrects the Cº to Fº conversion issue (for U.S. users) my rating will change to 4.5/5.
This App/Progran combination is not for everyone. It's for, what I would refer to as, Power Users. Meaning, users with technical and/or design software experience - and users with a willingness to invest the time to create an interface that fits their specific use-needs and allows for (possible) improvement over the Home App.
Basically - If you're confused about the difference between the VIZ App & the VIZ Program...and which needs to be loaded on what device...you're probably not in the category of 'Power User' that I referred to above.
If you are a 'Power User', you will likely be impressed with the capability of this App/Program combination. While not 'perfect', VIZ-Designer allow for a LOT of customization for creating a Dashboard that can be tailored to work within your specific use case.
Developer Response ,
Hi @UniqueFLH, thank you for your kind feedback! We are very happy to hear that you like the VIZ Designer and its potentials. We are aware of the Celsius/Fahrenheit issue and already have fixed it and it will roll out with our next update very soon. :)
Passcode pop-up stuck behind video cameras.
This is a great app. I have been able to make a unique HomeKit display by importing my own images. I would have given the app 5 stars but there seems to be a problem with passcode pop-up. When I press my security bottom the passcode pop-up is displayed in the middle of the screen, right where my cameras are. No matter what I have tried, I can’t not get the pop-up to display in front of the camera images. Is it possible to have the passcode pop-up display in front of the cameras?
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your rating! We are already working on that issue and it will be fixed in the next update. ;)
