Works great but would like to see more options. A do at time would be nice.
Love this company! They go above and beyond
I was looking for an app (rather apps) that could do what this can. Once you get used to their simple programming structures, the possibilities are absolutely endless. Love the Do app!
App will error on logon for a while after creating account online. Give it some time if you get login errors. Working great now!
I see something about emailing a gif and then it crashes.
While it does DO what it says, it's just slow. It's slow from the notification Center. When you open it you have to wait for it to refresh the icons before you can actually push the button. I don't know why they don't let the app shortcut to the home screen as individual buttons. If it does, I haven't found it yet. Just need to work.
First: I love the concept of the app. Having one "button" to trigger an action is great. But the horizontal scrolling is tedious if you have many buttons. A better solution would be Windows-style "tiles," multiple to a page.
You have a switch for a the light over your dinning table. You flipped it up and the light turns on, you flip it down and the room is dark. There no more to it. There's no making the lamp spin or make it spark rainbow colors. It does an specific task and it depends on you to do it. That simplicity of buttons and switches is taken by DO button. Those specific tasks are called recipes. You choose your channel and select an action under that channel. You can collect as much recipes that you want. All of mine use Google Drive to track time at work, time at chess, time at yoga ( it actually works to create habits). The rest are silly to me: Post your location, tell your friend that you are thinking about him, etc. I guess you would enjoy it more if you posses the hue lights, the nest thermometer, or anything of the new technology. But I like it. I mean that is all that I want... My only complain is that when you press the button to once the screen fills with blue and there's the chechmark and when you press it again the same thing happens. And if you have more than one buttons have been pressed you easily forget and then you scratch your head because you don't know if you are starting or stopping the stopwatch.
I'm not sure what the problem is, but when entering pervious username or attempting to create a new account, it says "this operation cannot be completed," which makes the app unusable.
Great app. Sometimes has connection issues. Otherwise, it's a handy app to keep around.
