Along with the release of P12 in Sep. at the end of 2021, Nebula has also rolled out a newly-revamped Nebula Mobile App 3.0, which focuses on the needs of small business users especially. It reorganizes the structure completely to improve the user experience by providing a brand-new, eye-catching user interface, a smoother flow design, and user-friendly features that help small business users maximize the value of using the app when managing their networks on-the-go.

                     

Here, we will highlight some key improvements of App 3.0 and also provide a quick-check function table compared with Version 2.6 for the existing users.

  • Reorganize the structure


  • Wizard adds more friendly guides and instructions


  • New Dashboard provides cleaner site summary and function access



  • WiFi page provides intuitive actions eg. create, disable/enable, share, delete


  • 3-in-1 Devices list is able to add devices directly

  • New 3-in-1 Clients list with block action support

  • Please please please add back the functionality to change VLAN assignments per port, both PVID and Allowed VLANS. This was in the previous version and a very commonly used feature for our installation techs in the field.  We need this again please!! Thanks!

    Hi @CPAV_Eric,

    I would like to inform that the new version of Nebula APP had made some re-positioning.
    We'll re-evaluate the feature you've mentioned.
    Thanks for the review and for sharing your experience with the new Nebula APP 3.0.

    Best regards,
