After the Nest Mobile app was updated to version 4.0 back in November, some users were confused with the new design. Important settings like the Nest Thermostat schedule, Energy History, and Fan Timer were moved into the right drawer, making them a little harder to find. But after listening to user feedback, Nest has recently updated the app, moving to version 4.0.1. And it is now much easier to find the drawer where all the settings can be accessed. A universal app designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad/iPad mini, Nest Mobile can be downloaded now in the App Store for free. Even though I wasn’t bothered by the new design, I’m glad to see Nest listen its users and make the app easier to navigate. You’ll need to have either a Nest Learning Thermostat or a Nest Protect carbon monoxide and smoke detector to take advantage of the app. The thermostat retails for $249 and can be purchased from a number of retailers, including Nest’s site. Unveiled in October, the Protect will set you back $129.
