I have been using Rachio for several years. i love it. I have one complaint that i have never been able to get working: notification sounds on iOS. i have tried everything:
- remove and reinstall the app
- turn notifications and notification sounds off and back on
- restore entire phone from backup
- i just got a new iPhone, and i set it up as a new phone and downloaded just the Rachio app, signed in, set up a new schedule, and STILL the notification that watering has started SILENTLY showed up on the home screen.
To reiterate, this is no an issue with MISSING the notifications perse, i get them all, but they just don’t SIGNAL me other than to show up silently on my phone’s home screen.
it’s annoying enough that i set up an IFTTT action to send me a push notification anytime watering starts. it’s a few minutes late, but at least i get an audible (or vibrate) notification. and then i look at my phone and see the Rachio notification from a few minutes ago sitting in my notification center.
has ANYONE else experienced something like this? i would say it might be an Apple issue, but this is only app i’ve had this problem with, and it is CONSISTENT - even to the point that a brand new phone, set up from scratch with a fresh Rachio download STILL has this problem for me.
