Josh W: “It works OK most of the time, but lights sometimes disconnect and have to be reconnected, sometimes requiring resetting the lights and going through the add device process all over again. Also can't have more than one light in music mode. Tried many ways to have all my lights in music sync mode but it won't work. Trying to use a tap-to-run task doesn't work. All it does is change the lights to red. Works well with Alexa, when it works.” – 3/5 in Play Store

kim kienitz: “New update caused bugs and made using my device more difficult. I use an automatic cat feeder where you should be able to set a time for it to go off. I can not set any more times, it won't update them. I got this device so I could leave for a few days with out having to worry about it malfunctioning with out know, it will send a message saying power off. The only way you can update times and feeding amount is through the app” – 2/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “I hate that this app lacks a remember me option, I don't want to request a password or code every time! The design and functionality of this app is identical to Jinvoo Smart, devices Wi-Fi plugs work on both. Hopefully, the plugs will work for more than one week (Until re-setup) due to the new router. It is also concerning about this app request GPS, but has no reason to need it.” – 2/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “Only works 50%. Scheduling on and off times works great. However, despite setting up a lighting schedule to run with the misting schedule, lighting doesn't respond. I have it start misting at 6:15am, with NO LIGHT. Light turns on everytime mist turns on, and wakes me up. (It's bright!!!) I must have my phone handy to turn off the light, so I can sleep longer. :( If you're going to offer light control and scheduling, please make sure it works properly!!!” – 3/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Paul Brindle: “The app is still pretty glitchy after all these years, and the user interface is often not intuitive. Failure to connect errors are common even with a strong WiFi signal. Jobs that are interrupted by a low battery can be problematic to complete after recharge, especially if the robot was working in a secondary location, like another floor.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Georgia Smith: “I'm not sure if I blame the app or the vacuum. The s9+ gets stuck constantly, even when there's nothing to be stuck on. You would think that the map would figure out areas it gets stuck in frequently give you the option to block that zone, but no. If it experiences an error, it cancels the job after you fix the issue. It's literally more work to babysit than to just vacuum the old fashion way. It's been getting even worse lately. Irritating for a $900 purchase.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Nyx Valentine: “It's competent and fairly feature-complete. Some things I'd like to see changed are: 1. Give us an option to enter a numerical value for brightness levels of lights. The slider is too imprecise. 2. Give us an option to enter a specific hexadecimal value for color, or at least a proper color picker. The current color picker is entirely predefined colors, and while there is a good selection, there is sometimes a difference in colors between two different devices, so color would need to be offset.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Mat Stone: “2 star app until 6.1 update. UI is confusing. Feels like each section was designed by a different team. No consistency with menus/features between sections. Sometimes you use icons at the top or bottom. Sometimes you scroll icons midway down the section. BUT 6.1 update brought a huge increase in responsiveness between app and light. 1sec down from 5+ So once go through the headache of getting everything in the app, groups, automation etc the app is useful” – 3/5 in Play Store

Busted: “Used to navigate my home fine. After various updates.. Now map is skewed/slanted.. Have to load a backup map each time I use it. Vacuum constantly gets lost in a house with no reflective surfaces (low to the ground anyway) to confuse it. At 66% battery, I got a notification that it could not locate the charging dock... And it was nowhere close to being finished.. It's not supposed to charge itself until 20% battery.. Yet it had parked itself and stopped vacuuming until I manually docked it.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Josh Shapiro: “IF YOUR BOT CANNOT CONNECT TO WIFI, TRY THIS: I got it to work, finally, after a ton of troubleshooting. You should forward this fix to your documentation team, since it was very odd. Xfinity internet service and many other big ISPs provide new routers that can only be controlled via the web. By default, the router is blocking the bot, possibly as some means of preventing a foreign WLAN based access point from connecting. Anyhoo, that was causing my issue. I had to sign into my router portal via Xfinity and assign the device as a Home Device so the router would let it through its "stupid proof", i.e. unconfigurable firewall. I'm not sure why the Xfinity router wasn't allowing the bot through by default, but there it is. So, I'm connected and all set, but I'm sure this is an issue others run into, so I hope this helps some folks out. The rest of the app works great for the most part, but this wifi connect issue was pretty troublesome and Roborock support had no clue how to fix it.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Hollie S.: “I usually give really good reviews, but not this time. This app is pretty scammy. It has a free "limited" version and a premium version. The limited version lets you connect the light bulb, change its color about 5 times, then it stops working completely. Even if you watch the ads. So you are forced to buy premium if you want to change the light more than a 5 times. I would have been fine if they were up front and honest about the fee. But they aren't.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Brian Jacobs: “The app works well without any issues. The vacuum also does a great job. Two things I think would make the app significantly better: 1) Show current progress of which rooms have already been cleaned based on the request. It currently doesn't offer any indication of what's been done so far. You must wait until it finishes to know anything. 2) Offer a way to schedule cleaning cycles for specific rooms. Would be great to set it to clean certain rooms on different days rather than the entire home.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Kathy Canuel: “It works fine and what's not to love about a vacuum that does the job for you? My one issue with the app is the speed, especially on startup. The little vacuum startup screen is cute the first couple of times, but when I'm in task mode and trying to send the vacuum into another room it feels like it takes forever for the working part of the app to show up so I can start the job.” – 5/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “I did not have the same issues as others mentioned. The email registration worked fine. My wife and I love the ability to set zones, move the robot to different floors and how well it gets under our bed and other furniture. Every now and then the server is slow, but overall it is much more capable than any other unit I have looked at. I bought my vacuum at Amazon, so maybe others have the Chinese version, not the international model.” – 5/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “I did not have the registration problems all the other users had. Buy this vacuum (S5) with confidence that the app works. If you register by phone number make sure your country code is correct. I like the mapping features and that you can specify a specific area on the map you want cleaned. Also I have multiple floors so I save a map for each one, very nice. Negative for 4 star : the permissions are excessive I declined many of them. My vaccum needs to make calls?” – 4/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Sarah Broglen: “I had no problem connecting to my wifi. My problem with it is that everytime it starts cleaning it does a random clean and you have to change it to the clean you want. I like small room clean. But the app will just change it right back to random clean and it missing lots of spots that way. It won't let you pick a different clean and stay on it. Also when the brush gets clogged and you have to pause and unclog it. The vac will restart the whole cleaning process over. It's very annoying.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Raf: “Dissatisfied. The 2 only things this app has that the remote doesn't have is the option to set a schedule and start/stop without a field of view. In addition there are options only the remote has!! Finally this app is supposed to keep track of the lifespan of the filter and brushes but it keeps resetting to 100% and in turn NOT keeping track at all! Who the heck developed this app? Jeez... App is lame but at least the vacuum is good. I guess that's the important thing.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Todd Fichter: “I could not use my OnePlus 6T running Android 10 to setup the Narwal with my wifi. I ran into errors no matter what I tried. I had to use a Nexus 5 running Android 7 to setup the device. This is why I gave the app 3/5 stars. Most people won't have the option of an old Android phone to go through setup. Once setup was complete everything has been working fine on my OnePlus 6T with Android 10. One request I have is add the ability to rotate the block zone boxes so I can create diagonal lines.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Marie Montague: “So for the most part the vacuum works great. We've got a cat, live in a dusty rural area, and have no carpeting - it's ideal for that. The problem is I recently went to update the schedule and it won't update. The app recognizes that I've tried to change it and says that it's trying to apply the changes. I keep getting a "session timed out" error message when I try to re save. I'm just having to manually go into the app and tell it to vacuum twice a day.” – 2/5 in Play Store
