by B####:

Especially now that it's been updated to better support private servers. Still not sure how to use the I2C hub. Use wio-cli to configure your wio link. Google sign in errors.

by Q####:

Almost all of the groves have no image and none of the grove ports show any information after you drag and drop. The APIs are good but I wouldn't say they're for beginners. After fiddling almost blindly I was able to get it to register a button press. Then I used Tasker to give me a toast every time it's pushed. So the potential is definitely there, but the app could be a bit better.

I have a problem with the image of the program , there is no images at all please help what I can do????

when sign in as Facebook

by L####:

Great product when you can get it to work. I cannot configure it on my S7. I got it to work by connecting it with my wife's iPhone then I could use the android app.

I would steer clear of the Wio product line for now. Wio is a great concept, but suffers from an immature/incomplete set of drivers, this confusing/poorly working app, and poorly documented ecosystem right now. This app is a part of the whole problem. It failed to connect to my device (Android/solution had to use the CLI). It was the first glimpse given into what Grove sensors were compatible with the Link device and what weren't -- shown to me well AFTER I bought a set of mostly unusable sensors. Nice one Seeed -- thanks a lot. Finally, it is confusing. The drag and drop in particular is very poorly designed. There is little indication that not all sensors are compatible with all slots. Worse, when you grab an item to drag, the slots that are INCOMPATIBLE say "Drag device here", whereas the slots that are actually compatible, lose that indicator. This is the exact OPPOSITE to how it should work. Why would this app tell me to drag a sensor to an incompatible slot??? Anyhow, what I thought would be a fun experiment with solderless IoT, from a company I would normally trust, has turned into an expensive fail. It is unfair to present this as a working product/ecosystem.

by I####:

App just crashes when trying to connect to the server to add a device.

by U####:

Wio link is such a great product - it is a shame that it is let down by an app that doesn't work for many. I cannot configure the wio other than using the CLI. Which completely fly's in the face of what the kickstarter campaign was about.

by V####:

Can the dev explain in the app description why these are needed? Seems unnecessary to have access to app history, phone, call log, etc.

by D####:

Gave it a month, saw two app updates released, and still - neither unit will connect. Sorry but I don't really have the time nor inclination to mess around with some sort of command line toolkit. I'll try again after two or three more updates. So far, just another Kickstarter disappointment.

by W####:

Since v2.2.2 App work like intended. I am able to add links directly in the App on a Nexus 7 and a Nexus 5x, both running latest Android 6. It takes some time until connected Links and their connected Grove modules appear if the app is reused after some days.

by Z####:

It just works, tablet or phone. Super pleased

by A####:

It is working like a charm again! Thanks!

by R####:

The list of supported Grove components is too small, shouldn't all Grove components sold by Seeed be supported by the app? Half the components I have are unsupported and thus useless. When will more components be supported?

by J####:

Can't connect to AP. Both iOS and android app has this issue >.< Don't make me regret my purchase :(

by Y####:

The device can't connect to the wireless router. Thought this new version would fix things but it hasn't.

by F####:

Seeing data collected by the Wio in the app would be great, as would the possibility to interact with it. This would speed up troubleshooting.

by C####:

It's really confusing, just sat down to use the Wiolinks and can't even do basic stuff like read inputs or control outputs. Weird stiff

by E####:

Wio link won't connect to AP, tried multiple routers. Fix please!
