I moved into a new home with a much greater floor area and found myself vacuuming every two days and spending a good couple of hours on it. I have a sore hip so my husband bought me the robot with dust catcher. I love it so much. My floors are always clean

Confusing and messy.
App keeps crashing when I attempt to update a room divider in the smart map. Renders this feature useless.
Why no integration with Apple HomeKit or Siri. You need to program IFTTT which is overkill - just jump on the apple bandwagon please....
Awesome. This is great.
Went to open app today, can’t get into it without updating.
I don’t like that I’ll update when I want to update.
I can’t delete cleaning schedule, edit or make a new one. I keep on getting an error try again later
Was sceptical when it first came out as I did not think it will work. After a couple of year went by, the temptation was still not there to purchase until I went to a tenant house that have a robot and asked him how it was and he said it was amazing and even showed me the amount of dirt that it picked up. After that, I went home and did some research and decided to purchase our first robot on the weekend! It was amazing as the floor was always clean! After using this for a couple of years, we have recently purchased the iRobot m6 moo. Now I hope that this new robot will live up to our expectations!
Area map is not good at all. Hard to remember areas. There should be an actual map of the house so you can easily select areas. We previously used Ecovac their App is much better. IRobot should work on their app.
Really happy with the vacuum. We are in a pokey little place, but it bounces it’s way around fine. It gets stuck sometimes in the edge of thick rugs, but amazes me with what it can handle. The only issue is it fails to dock a lot. You can watch it go up onto the dock, then it turns at the last minute and stuffs it up, which pushes the dock to the side too. Not a big deal really, I just dock it when I get home or when it alarms
automatic mode - doesn’t work. Roomba always uses the maximum power:((
Whilst I love my Roomba and Braava vacuum and mop, the mapping is exceptionally poor. The result is a very vague outline of reality despite removing everything, including furniture to give a clear training run. There is even a random non existent path sticking out of one room like a secret passage. Unfortunately, once the training is done it’s done. The system isn’t quite smart enough to improve maps over time, so I continue to have my devices smashing into walls at speed and persisting to get through walls that have always been there and won’t change. Nice try but not the smarts I was hoping for.
I had to send my robot away for some repairs now that it’s back I can’t use the schedule on the app won’t let me delete a schedule or start a new one or use the current one.
A notification for an available update SHOULD NOT force me to update them and there. The app was unusable until I updated to a new version of the app.
Configuring wifi on this app is a nightmare. Once the robot got stuck and ran out of juice. The cleaner lost schedule configuration straight after because it could not connect to wifi. My older “dumb” roomba does not. Why force the customer to save their data on your cloud??? The app requires location services to connect to wifi. Why??? Cant you configure using Bluetooth like apple does with its devices???? The app connects to a number of third party domains too and automatically runs in the background even when I turn off background updates. Why??? Why the desire to suck up a lot of our data??? Whats the need to phone home to google and facebook graph??? Fix this or I will gladly move to another company.
I am enjoying my Roomba\ Brava but the app could do with some improvements...
The smart imprint technology that allows you to tell the Brava to mop after the vacuuming is done, only works for adhoc cleans. You are unable to link devices when setting up schedules.
In addition, there is no way of specifying the order of cleaning in a schedule. Personally, I want the iRobot to start cleaning the living area first in the mornings and then move onto the bedrooms later...
Finally, if you choose to update your smart maps with newer data or change your WiFi settings the app deletes your schedules as well. This has resulted in me creating new schedules more times than I would like.
I was expecting more from the software:
-not having to manually sync the second phone to be able to manage the robot after logging into my account.
-a virtual map showing the track throughout the house, and the ability to spot clean or create no-go areas on the map without having to revert to physical beacon devices.
-ability to control how long a cleaning job runs for.
-ability to target the cleaning of different rooms on different days.
-robot to go DIRECTLY home when asked, or when the battery is flat.
-memory of, and subsequent avoidance of the places where the robot gets stuck.
-less day-to-day supervision and intervention.
The app does everything it says it will etc. however what it does need which I feel is missing is the ability to give the Roomba a path of exit defined by the user or a RTB path. My base is near my table which unless cleaning has chairs around it. My Roomba thinks that the table is there with no chairs and always tries to put through them then turns around. Probably screwing up my mapping. Real pain when you only want to clean one room or two quickly outside of scheduled “chair up” cleans.
I love my IRobot Roomba 150 So can this app Control it I tried
To reach the screen with the clean button My vacuum can
Tackle any Messes Works on all floor surfaces it has a 4 axis-motor system So That means The Cleaner Can Go North South East West And map shows Where Cleaner is going and end Of cleaning or when battery Is GETTING LOW The Cleaner Seeks the Base Station Even Works In dark in dark the cleaner Uses Ultrasonic Night vision in camera and ultrasound Sound Sensors only a active In the Dark and Uses X-ray Vision to Track Dirt only works in darkness And Shows the House Map And The o Dot means Where The Cleaner is Modes: Turbo Spot Normal Clean dock
Excellent. Cleans daily and does a great job every time. Saves me a great deal of time on the weekend.
While the vacuum itself is great I’m extremely disappointed in after sales service. I contacted the Australian support service listed on the app and was hung up on after they found out I purchased through another authorised retailer. IXL Australia pick up your game. I purchased the 980 version for its wi fi capability which worked well for the first 2 weeks, now the app will not even open displaying an error message every time I try and open it. Your after sales support really does leave a lot to be desired on such an expensive item. Not happy
We purchased roomba about month ago. Didn't really know what to expect Friday but we were quite impressed with its mapping system and performance especially on the carpets. Unfortunately have to admit many times when I'm using it it gets stuck. I'm usually making sure the floor is tidy and free of debris yet somehow it gets stuck. Also I'm pretty sure before we bought we found the information that the battery life is up to 2 hrs but we never seen it going for longer than 1.20 mins. I like the app although not too sure why most of the time it says there was no dirt picked up. Overall is really good and loving it when it does the job right.
I find the app really help full for cleaning the house when on the go so often. But I’d really like a manual over ride to send irobot home when the battery is dying or be able to try and get it unstuck when away from the house. And be informed that it’s stuck before I come home.
Thanks so much you have made my love so much easier.
Love the little robot 😁😁😁
Could never look back from having my Roomba vacuum. My asthma is so much better despite having a very good hand held vacuum Roomba does it better. Gets into all the places dust collects. Even between the computer wires under the desk. So easy to clean and maintain. Can’t believe the dust and animal hair it lifts up off the carpet and floors. So effective. Love my Roomba!
The app works fine and gives all the required information, however, it would be excellent if there were options to turn off the cliff sensors so that I don’t have to cover them (black stripes in my rug causes the cliff sensors to stop the unit) and also to have an option of splitting the house into 2 or 3 zones so that I can select which zone I want to clean instead of having to set up the towers or to vacuum the whole house.
Absolutely love my iRobot. The app is fantastic. Great being able to see where it has cleaned on the map. Integrates well with Google Home. 2 suggestions would be
1. If I could select a spot on the map for it to focus (I realise this is a stretch).
2. Being able to schedule multiple cleans in one day.
Purchased my iRobot two years ago. It’s amazing. I can’t fault any aspect. The clean is brilliant, the information available on its performance via the app is phenomenal. I can schedule start and stop, use the barriers to close down areas and it’s quiet, which is important given I have a three year old who love an afternoon nap!
I love my Roomba 980 and the integration with the app is fantastic. Only thing I think could be added-not because it’s needed but because it would be super cool-is remote control from the app. It’s a bit gimmicky but would be a fun little feature to play around with. Be even better if you could see through the camera on the mobile device while driving it.
The robotic revolution is here. This product is amazing.
You get what you pay for !!! The app is great also, one push of a button and iRobot vacuumes the house and the app showed a mapped out diagram of the places cleaned by iRobot... worth every penny !!!
Stop selling my home layout plans.
I already paid over $1500 for my Roomba
Such an amazing robot. Love the fact I can operate it from work especially when people unexpectedly tell you they are coming over. Great work!!
Great product, however I would like a more updated software package that allows the user to send the iRobot to any location, as opposed to having to pick it up and place it there. A simple map of my home previously cleaned would be enough to click on an area and send it there.
Further, the unit does not clean logically. I have a large home and it cleans half of one end and then goes back to the other end of the house (completely separated rooms ) and does half of that and then back to finish the original - thus requiring a charge midway thru the clean - taking total cleaning time to 50% more than it should be if cleaning one area at a time as it should. Perhaps an icon also to say - stay on this room and vacuum for x mins would be advantageous.
Of note, it struggles on my shagpile rug, and if you have floor to ceiling Venetian blinds, the suction is quite good and has ripped the roping on the first few occasions until I now open the blinds and Place the no go sensors near it.
2 years old now, The system rarely finds home to recharge by itself. I will get home to find it in the middle of a room (not stuck) requiring recharge.
It’s also worthy to mention that, like a child, you have to IRobot proof your home. I like the scheduling but unless you’re home is perfect lines. Chances are you will be sent a message - iRobot is stuck.
We bought the top of the line version, I would to see software updates to the app to allow better and more efficient usability. This Happens with my TV, Fridge, air con system and car.
Sounding quite negative, but other than the small bin and constant sensor Cleaning, the unit has saved my back. Will probably choose a different brand next time.
This item saves so much time. I am amazed at how much it picks up each vacuum. The App is great too. It does cost a bit but I believe it is great value for money and is the best investment I have made in a long time.
Good to know is charged and be able to put it to clean while at work.
Would be ideal to have a map of the house and be able to tell the robot where to clean
There are areas that the robot doesn’t seem to even go into even though there’s enough space. You wait for it to go the second or third round, but it just finishes the ‘job successfully’
Easy to use App. Love the little maps. Very good device.
Overall great but wish can spot clean a room.
I downloaded app in preparation before taking delivery of my new Roomba however when trying to create a new account the app just spins continually. Not a good start for a new customer :(
I used to be able to connect to my Roomba
So I removed the device.
But now I can’t it goes through the setup process sends the wifi info to the device then tells me it’s a 2.4ghz connection which isn’t true.
Roomba isn’t as useful if I manually have to turn it on..... I used to have it run on a calendar
This is a better Robot vacuum than the Samsung we had.
It has a much more efficient way of going about doing its job. I swear I see it thinking about how it’s going to battle the table and chairs or some other hurdle.
The app works well on my apple device too, unlike...... you know who!
My only complaint is it doesn’t have bristled rollers. It still works well, but it doesn’t tickle up the carpet very well.
Simple to use. Occasionally has some connection issues but not very often.
Roomba is the best investment and I am absolutely delighted with the results.
Would be good to see a live floor plan of what’s cleaned and what’s not
You need an account just to use the app now. Theres no need for it, the Roomba will work otherwise, and there was never a need for an account in previous versions.
Roomba 980 owner - couldn’t be with out it. The app itself is easy to use with plenty of options to set and run your Roomba the way you want. My floors look fantastic it has far exceeded my expectations. Planning to get the mopping bot to complete my set up.
Coming home to clean house, is so good. Specially when all the A.I. is working as a charm
