Roost is an application that allows you to manage your Nest devices using the nest.com service.

Currently this is a wrapper to the nest.com site with some additional functionality.  If Nest Labs give us access to the API we will create a native client that you can switch between.

This app is not, associated with, endorsed by, or affiliated with Nest.com or Nest Labs, Inc.

Supports small, medium, and large tiles.  Live tiles coming soon.

Adding and managing a Nest thermostat is supported. Please note that adding a Nest Protect smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) alarm is not supported at this time.  Managing a previously added one is.  This is a Nest limitation.

    Might be just a wrapper but it does everything I need to manage the thermostat. Connects quickly. Functions very well.

    I appreciate that this is filling a gap now that the official Nest app has been pulled, but there are issues. First, app loads and responds very slowly. This is probably because it is just a wrapper for the Nest website, so none of the code has been optimized for mobile at all. Second, many of the more detailed screens don't display properly because of mobile limitations of the website, such as the energy usage history. That said, basic functionality such as turning on/off away, or changing preferred temperatures works fine, and I am glad to have the ability to change those things, but feel suckered after paying for this app when bookmaking the official website would be easier and probably faster. At the least, you'd think the app would offer a live tile, but currently it does not.

    Waste of money. Makes me sign in each time.
