What's new in this version
We recently launched a new Web app, that now has all of the same great features as your Windows mobile app and more. As part of this release, we have made the tough decision to stop supporting the Windows mobile app after lower than expected take-up. This is not a decision that was taken lightly, and was on the condition that we had an alternative that we are confident that you’ll be happy with. What does this mean for me? Rest assured, for the next 6 months from this release date, your Windows App will continue to work as it has, however you will start to notice that there are features on the web app that aren’t available in your Windows app. We recommend adding a bookmark to your phone's homescreen to make accessing the Web app quick and easy. Simply open my.hivehome.com/login in Internet Explorer > click the menu in the top right > click “Pin to start” and you will be able to access your Hive Web app in much in the same was as you do now. To find out more, please take a look at our FAQs.
