Quote from “Software status”
Most of our development power has been allocated to work on the new Homey Smartphone App. The new app will be mostly native, and a lot easier to use for both existing users and newcomers. It will make it much easier to add new features as well for us, because currently we’re working with a front-end codebase of over 3 years old.
Our focus shift to mobile means that the Homey Desktop App (and all web-interfaces) will eventually be removed as of Homey v2.0. The new Homey Smartphone App will also work on tablets (Android & iPad), whereas for developers a simulator will be available in the browser.
This is a big change, but we can’t stay behind. Homey should be even more easy to use than it already is, and moving to mobile is a great opportunity to do just that.
For who this is new:
- It started with the Mobile first decision of Athom communicated here almost 18 months ago!
- and the hard discussion on Slack, Forum and other places on the Internet.
It must be encouraging for Athom to see that so many Homey’s are committed to using Homey and want to have their best solution.
Despite that Athom has to make decisions and chooses to develop one Mobile App (for both iOS and Android) and stop developing the Desktop/Web interface.
As it is not good for the readability on the community that this discussion is taking place across all other topics your Reply’s and complains about this will be moved here. Feel free to discuss it here with others who have time and meaning to discuss it.
