I've been using the Mini-8 for about 1.5 years now. It has always done what I need it to do, and I really enjoy being able to control it via app. However, the current version of the app does not work well (at all) with the Rainmachine on my Pixel 2, Google's current flagship phone.
When I launch the app, there is a moving blue line, and the dashboard takes 1-2 minutes to appear. From there, the "zones" and "programs" tabs are blank. The "settings" tab appears to work normally, but I can't tell if any settings changes are pushed through to the control unit.
Alternatively, if I access http://my.rainmachine.com in a web browser, I can log in to and control my Rainmachine that way. But the web interface is clunky and very inconvenient for me to use. I reported this issue to Rainmachine support over 2 months ago, and their response was, basically, "this is the second report we've gotten about this issue, and we're looking in to it." Since then, crickets. What is going on, people???
