    MODBREAK:

     a unstable build of the new app has been distributed to some members by accident. 

    It was not Athom's intention to share and posts/screenshots you may have seen are removed by Athom. 

  • More regular updates would be highly appreciated.

    Ok now, can someone tell me: is this a community board or Athoms? If Athoms, ok, you can delete whatever you want. But i read couple of times that this is community board, not supported from Athom.

    Hi

    I see some comments about widgets and dashboard. I urge you to keep i it simple and easy to use. As an moderator of my homey i love the new app. But I have not given access to my family members as they would just be frustrated with the overwhelming list of devices and options.

    And no, I do not want to run HomeyDash on cellphones, I want it all in one single app. I do not want my family to have do deal with different solutions.

    For a day to day usage, this is the worst part of homey, the lack of a userfriendly interface. I would not recommend homey to any family until this is inplace. For singel gadget freaks, no problem.

    For now my family will keep using our old Telldus product to turn of an on devices and read sensor data.

    My request is to simply add two pages in the app. The first one containig my favorite on/off devices and flows to start. The second one containing my favorite sensors and weather related information. For tablets/iPad, you might combine those two pages into one.

    Here is a picture from my Telldus app, it even go a slider for dimming lights.This is user friendly.

    I have tested homeyda.sh ... a good start for a wall mounted tablet. But fonts is currently too small to use as a wall mounted tablet. I'll give my point of view in that forum.

    not sure if it should be in this topic; but i changed my homey password and i was still able to use my App. 

    I expect when you change your homey password, your session is no longer valid and you are required to login again.

    Which was the case in the Homey v1 app.

    Have you stopped giving more users access to the new iOS beta app?
    Because I've submitted the form multiple times for my girlfriend :(
  • RexRex Member
    Hi there, any news about new releases? Is still the version 0.8.5 the latest?
  • Hi, does  somebody know this: I have reinstalled my phone. But now will crash every time the new app when I try to open it... it was working before reinstalled ...

    Did you do an update (new iOS/Android) version? Otherwise it's good to send your information/logs as a Github issue to Athom, it's a beta app that still needs work

    In the Flows you can define your own commands and what they should do.

    What is the release schedule for the public beta of 2.0? 
  • HomdomHomdom Member
    December 2017  :(
  • Yeah it's rubbish... The members of this forum are receiving fake promises during the whole process of Homey.
  • tobpet01tobpet01 Member
    Soon another month since last monthly blog entry. Beta of new app is "very very" soon to be released...
    Any update on when we can expect something or is development dead?

    Yeah, I asked myself the same question... When is 'very very' soon and how is the release of the public beta communicated to us?

    This month. In an interview with HardwareInfoTV on YouTube Athom stated that the launch would be this month.

    That's what I heard to. But the first comment beneath the video Athom is stating that it would not be this Monday, but this month. 
    I think it was a slip of the tong. 

    Quote: "Athom B.V.

    Op 20:00 praat Stefan over het nieuwe design en de public beta van de App. Het is wat slecht te horen, maar hier wordt 'deze maand nog' gezegd - dus niet 'deze maandag'. Voordat er verwarring ontstaat."

    This month probably means Thursday the 31st of May.

    Software development is hard especially when there are so many (versions of) platforms. You are never sure that it is almost ready.

    Any update on the availability of the new app (update)? Beta expires in 14 days.
    déjà vu... 
  • Louis28Louis28 Member
    It’s still awfully quiet considering the new Homey app will be released this week, right? They seriously can’t be delaying it again without any notice.
