Homewave project dead?
« on: September 20, 2018, 10:07:26 am »
Doesn't appear to have been any updates in over 7 months.  Just curious if the project has run its course?

There's a few things I need to get around to fixing, but other than that I feel the app is more or less where I want it to be.  Of course there's always more functions that could be added...
HomeWave is available in the App Store!  Turn your iPhone/iPad into an easy-to-use remote control for Vera.

I have used VeraMate for many years on 2 iPhones.  Sad the developer has abandoned it. If Homewave has a free version to try out, I may make the move from VeraMate. Thus far, VeraMate does over 90% of what I need it to do but the AltHue support is weak.

I second this! I am also looking for a replacement to VM. I wish there was a free version of the Homewave app to try out.

That has been asked before!  I will look into how easy it is to put out a free trial version.

And if the software is as good as VeraMate, you can raise the price to $5.99. That is what VeraMate charged for the Premium and I purchased it for 2 iPhones.
