Great price but so not recommended because of the app that controls it. The latest update made this robot basically useless. Just read the reviews for the ihome clean app on whatever app store you use.

Unfortunately, I'm losing a lot of faith with iHome products. Just recently, iHome turned off the smart home functionality for all their smart plugs making them useless. It worked well for the past 4 years but now it's simply paper weights.
Huh, the latest update has been fantastic both ours. I will say that I did have to reset and re-add one of them to the app, but it picked up right where it left of with settings, map, and no-go zones.
This or the wyze robot vacuum?

Have this exact one cleaning as we speak. Highly recommend.

The app update has made it much better and more user friendly, though I did need to reset zones.

Only downside is no Alexa/Google integration to easily say "Alexa, clean the family room." That being said, I just setup different areas on schedules or use the iHome app.

Version 3.3.0

It's definitely not a great app, but it more than gets the job done.

Do you actually have the unit like I do, or are you just reading specs off?

I'm telling you the voice integration does not work well, it at all.

I upgraded from V2.0.5 to the latest V3.0.3 and the new app would not let me login. I had to get to create a new account. After I was able to create a new account, login, and add my Nova again, I obviously lost all my maps individual areas. I did let it run again to create a new map but the app didn't create the map correctly (for example, it would not create walls where there would be a wall).

Finally, I was able to re-install V2.0.5 and login with my original account. However, all my old maps were there but I was not able to use the old map. In the end, I'm having to create a new map for my house and setup the rooms again.

I'm glad to hear that some folks are having a better experience but if you read the reviews, it sounds like more people are having issues with V3.0.3.

I agree with one of the Playstore comments where someone suggests not to turn on Auto Update for this app. Stick with V2.0.5 until all the bugs are fixed with V3.x.x app.

What's going on with these rollbacks on robot vacuums at Walmart?

I've had no issues with the app, using latest version. Vaccum has ran without issues for 6 days. Will be getting a 2nd unit for my basement
