Re: Important: NETGEAR Genie App Will No Longer Be Updated
The Genie application for MacOS is far superior in functionality than the orbi and nighthawk apps for mobile.
Nothing like replacing an application with one that has less functionality.
Less functionality for what you and I want to do, but it seems to be a part of a move to add new router firmware with bells and whistles like Circle and Armor. Netgear removed the free Parental Controls from the apps so that they could add these services. Oh, and they removed some other features from routers, because they used up memory needed for these paying services. Unfortunately, we don't get a choice of firmware if we want to keep up to date.
