Please forgive any construction in the next couple of weeks as we cut over to the new brand, Simple Control, and product line. Some parts of the website will be taken offline during this time to migrate to the new website, new store, new forums, new app, and new product line. At the end of this process by late October or so, the existing forums will be online in an archived mode for searching, and new content will go into the new forum. This is now a bit of a hard hat area, moderation may be slower than usual, please as always make sure to submit support questions as tickets rather than to the forums.
Product functionality itself should not experience any impact from this migration.
As part of the process, Simple Control the new app will replace Roomie Remote on the App Store shortly. It’s just a normal App Store update with a new name. As with any major migration to a new release, customers with managed configurations should evaluate when is the best time to migrate to a major new release before updating from the App Store. We anticipate working through any early issues quickly, but any 0.0 release will find some unanticipated issues to be resolved in future maintenance releases.
A full What’s New guide will be posted when the app goes live detailing migration steps. In particular, Roomie Agent must be upgraded to Simple Sync and each client must be paired to Simple Sync which now uses an explicit pairing approval. Simple Sync will be made available simultaneous with the app going live. Alternatively, you may activate an option in Simple Sync to allow all local pairings automatically which simulates the same behavior used today. Also, all Dropbox links must be re-established in the app. If you have not performed a backup recently, now would be a good time to do so. All in-app purchases remain in effect exactly as they are defined today so there should be no issues for migration there.
The new minimum iOS version as we previously announced is 8.4. Downloading on an older device will provide the last compatible release for iOS 7/8.0-8.3 (3.3.0) or iOS 6 (2.4.1). The new minimum watchOS version is 2.0. Apple Watches not yet upgraded to 2.0 will not have the app after upgrading.
Thank you and we hope you enjoy the new release!
