Nice software!  Very easy to use.  Hooked up to my Vera and gave me control of it immediately!   I would love the option to be able to hide some objects so I can create simpler interfaces for the kids.

I tried to use the in-app upgrade on my ipad but it charged me, and errored out.  Now the option is no longer available and I'm stuck with the lite version with the banner ads still.  Any idea how to get the ipad update? ;)

Can you provide the complete list for the impressive function that maps an icon to the room name.
I'm mostly lacking yard, front yard and back yard since they end up with the ladder icon.

@kitstube

Thanks :)  The options to hide objects etc will be in a future version (I'm hoping for January).

The in-app purchase also has a timing/crash bug which I hope I've fixed in version 3.3.  If the purchase has gone through and you're not seeing it, click on one of the other in-app purchases, and then the "restore" button.  After a couple minutes it should update properly, otherwise, the purchase wasn't completed.  (If you have to do it again, don't worry, Apple will only charge it once).

@HouseBot

There are some areas which I struggled to do an icon for - I don't have something perfect for Yard for example.  The list is a mapping to my internal icon list, so, if you give me the list of rooms you have, I'll whip in a mapping that should be more likeable.

Where can I find information on the icon sets and what room names each icon responds to.
Thanks!

The room icons are based on an internal algorithm using the room names, and an internal icon set.  If you let me know the room names, I can add them to the algorithm now.   

However, I have an update coming out (I hope) towards the end of next week which will allow you to choose the room icon.... so that will solve the problem if you are seeing just a default icon :)

It cloud be very nice if We got the option to see feedback info via text like "command sent" "command received ok" "status on/off" etc.

I purchased the app a few weeks ago. However, I have placed it on hold because it does not let me login, no matter what I try. My iphone is running IOS7 and Jalibroken

@veramate have you seen the new Vera firmware Ui6 is running on a different url http://x.x.x.x/cmh_ui6/ where as before http://x.x.x.x/cmh   Is that the reason why my VeraMate app now no longer functions?

Any plans for supporting Ui6 soon ?

@dukejohn - no I didn't realise this was a breaking change!  I'll get onto that asap.

If anyone would like to give me a bit of access to their vera with Ui6 which would help a bit, please PM me and I can give some details.

UI6 remote access is drastically different from Ui5. It is also way more complex. It will most likely require a good amount of work to integrate. Documentation has not been posted yet.

I'm just looking through some of the posts about the beta testing; looks to be a fair way from being release quality.  Thanks - will bare that in mind, so may not have an update ready quickly (or possibly just a temporary pre-release solution).

Let's just say I will not install it on my production Vera anytime soon. I installed it on my development Vera and needed to do a factory reset to clear up issues and plugin craziness. I would strongly hold off and even wait for UI7. If you have a spare Vera then try it out.
