Windows 10 apps:
I was told in july/august to expect a Windows 10 app "before christmas". So I still am waiting for that one. And I can tell you that I'm really looking forward to it!
Please tell us why it should be difficult to release whatever you have at the moment, as it is very hard to understand. Why in the world wouldn't you make the Anova sous vide device the best integrated device ever?
As I've said before:
You, as in "the Anova Company", are trying to make a living out of selling sous vide devices, right? And that these devices are marketed as "smart", Wifi connected sous vide devices? The economic goal is, of course, to make more money, as everybody else wants to do. Right? And ultimately, that means that you are trying to sell more devices... right?
For the sake of my argument we accept this as true, as other answers would be quite surprising. But if you have different answers please elaborate. So, given that:
Why are you holding on to your API like it was the location of the Holy Grail?
If I wrote a plugin for my home automation software (like I'm planning to do) that would let me control the Anova device from my home automation setup, my guess is that that would generate more sales, as I would publish it for others to use free of charge. The more your customers are happy, even if they are geeks like me (or perhaps ESPECIALLY if they are geeks like me), the more devices you sell.
People are getting more and more used to products that can talk to each other, either via IFTTT (for most people) or by using specialized software for specialized tasks (like home automation).
As long as you don't sell the software, why wouldn't you make the Anova Precision Cooker the most compatible (or rather "integrable") sous vide device available?
I hope I didn't offend you, as that wasn't my intention at all. If I did, I apologize.
If this rumoured API is only compatible with newer Anova devices, I will have to get a new device. But it won't be an Anova device...
Last week my house won the title "Norway's Smartest Home" which I am proud of. But I didn't make it the smartest home by buying products that does not integrate.
Controlling anything over wifi doesn't make it "smart", only "remote accessable".
Please send this upwards to the leaders until someone who's making the decisions have answered. Thank you.
