The least they can do is fix the issues with features that they're marketing that don't work.

I still can't sync on iOS. I still can't get history on iOS.  I could go on...
I agree, and these aren't unique to iOS, I have the same issues on an Android however others have no issue (apparently) ::) :'

We're not talking obscure issues.  These are important features that don't work.  It's false advertising, and unethical.

Fortunately (!!), I have bigger issues that distract me! ;)

The fact that features don't work for me or you doesn't make it false advertising if they can show others have the features working.  :(
However knowing some users can't get the advertised features working, I'd would think would at least have them rewording the advertised features in the sales and promotion web pages. ::) :'

I have been using a WM100 exclusively since I moved last July.  History did not work when I first got the WM100 and then it worked sporadically for a couple of months then stopped.  And now for some reason it has been working every time I try for the last few months on both Android and iOS.  I did have to re-sync the time after the change to DST, but other than that it has been working well for what it is.

Ok, I'll give you that.  Most features work on my (obsolete) iPhone 5 running iOS 10. However, I am running iOS 12 on my iPad, and many key features don't work.  I don't own a current iPhone, so I can't test that

I can sync with my android 8 phone, but I can't get history.

I'm opening old wounds. Sorry.  B:(

No need to be sorry! I don't think your opening Old wounds. ;)
Many of us users tired of this have moved to the open sourced PiX10Hub and a $5-$30 RPi ZeroW or newer.
I still keep my WM100 plugged in for my wife as I've not yet introduced her to HomeGenie on the Phone.
She is happy with just being able to turn X10 things on and off and couldn't care a bit about other options.
Check out the PiX10Hub, I'm sure you'll be more then impressed with what can be done with the corner stone, HomeGenie.

I have trouble connecting to my WM100 around 2230 half the time. It's not on my end, as I've tried it on multiple networks. The issue resolves itself in the AM.
I can't turn off the lights to go to bed.
I don't want to consider myself a power user when I just want a simple off/on.

I purchased a pi kit a few months ago, but haven't had time or energy to play with it. Unfortunate circumstances have called me back to the job I retired from 6 years ago, as the replacement i trained became I'll and passed away.

You'll just have to go to bed with the lights on.
That's bad that the WM100 isn't letting you sleep. rofl
I have all my lights timed to turn off at 9:00 did that with my wm100 prior as well (no internet needed)usualy I'm in bed at that time.

Setting up the a pi with the PiX10Hub image is easier then installing Windows certainly faster.
Moving your x10 over to it can be done in steps depending on what you wish to do.

Yes. Sometimes I get a telco from the FD or the plow company and have to leave in the middle of the night.

My parents did OK for themselves... but both worked long hours to get there. My brothers and I all had a phones in our rooms as a children (more than 50 years ago).... and yet I can remember as a small child the large wooden crank-phone that hung on the kitchen wall.

I would assume everyone at the forums has phone access while in bed.

For calls only in my case. My phone sits in it's charger in my study. It rings on my XBlue 16 multi-line phone system connected by an XLink BT adapter so I can answer or place calls from any room but I don't see texts or use it for anything else when not in my study.  I may carry it around the house if I have a specific need but that's very rare.  (X10, XBlue and XLink are not related to one another.)
