Looks like you need to rotate screen to portrait mode, then at the bottom of the screen is a "touch to begin" button (or something similar). Then reenter all the account info.

But add account doesn't seem to actual add the account.
And the key must be entered in caps for the "A-F" characters making switching between digits and alpha a royal pain.

I'm having same issue on iPhone and iPad. I must re-enter all login details for the controller. Then, I hit Save and a pop up asks if I want to retrieve Setup. I press yes, and I see everything get downloaded. Once complete, the screen goes back to "Add Account" like everything I've added wasn't saved. Rinse and repeat...nothing saved

Let's go HAI! I know it's great that yall made some good $ with Leviton, but please keep up the support that you have in the past iOS8 has been in development mode for months

Exactly the same thing I'm seeing. BTW, you can ease (but not eliminate) the pain of entering the key by emailing it to yourself, then you can copy & paste on the mobile device.

I received the following reply from HAI Tech Support regarding this issue. Sounds like we should have a fix soon!


"We have an updated version of our iOS app that is simply waiting for Apple’s approval to push live to the app store.

As you might be aware, we had to test the app in iOS 8, and the first day we could submit our update was Monday of this week. It’s in Apple’s hands as they review. This is the SAME APP (Snap-Link Mobile) with a new GUI, optimized for iOS 8…customers will simply need to update via app store.

Our engineer says: “The accounts aren't deleted... for some reason iOS 8 doesn't display them correctly. Once our new update is pushed it should fix the issue.”

Thanks for your patience as we wait on Apple,"

By the way, I received the reply to my email regarding this issue in FOUR MINUTES!

Can't expect anything better than that!

14 days and still no update. At this point, I think it will just be easier to use the HAIKU app instead. I dont believe Apple's review takes 14 days. From what I can tell it is 7-10 days maximum. Heck, I have had some apps update twice since IOS 8 was released

We are aware that some users are experiencing difficulties with iOS 8. On September 16th, Leviton submitted an iOS 8/iPhone 6 optimized app to Apple. We are eagerly awaiting approval but naturally they have a backlog.

Not only is the app optimized for the latest iOS, but it will receive a GUI refresh to match our award-winning OmniTouch 7!

As a reminder, Leviton’s automation systems do not require the internet or any apps to function normally.  Remote access is available via the apps, but the apps are not a required component.  Every other way to access the system including touchscreens, keypads, PC Access, and even calling it on the telephone, still works.

 

We apologize as we patiently wait for the upgrade to be approved.

I am finding it very hard to believe leviton/HAI 's excuse that the app has been submitted to apple and waiting for thier approval. Horsesh*t, new apps can get apple approval and be avaliable in 72 hours. I am a dealer with multiple account on my phone (prior to IOS8) and now im stuck. the last time there was an issue with snaplink not saving files in IOS7, if i remember it took them up to 6 months to fix it. i am really getting tired of the snow job and wish someone at Leviton / HAI would start telling the truth to the Dealers. If it is stuck in Apple, then after two weeks dont you think someone should follow up with this? and let up know? This in an app UPDATE, not a new app and acording the apples API's a full review is not necessary. I am getting angry e-mails and phone calls daily from customers that cannot control their systems because of this. in one case, the IPad app was thier ONLY way to control their system. we are going on three weeks now. unaccaptable.

Thank God my IPad 1 still works. My IPad 3 and IPhone 5s is a totally different story. Thought, watch this app update make my IPad 1 obsolete!

This is getting a bit ridiculous, and for HAI to assume that your clients don't rely on their personal handheld devices to control their home is ludicrous.
