I've managed to take a few screen shots of the App.
Since this is requires the Module for setting up scenes and to work I can't comment to much on the workings.
Also this may not be the release version so things may change.
The Name of the app is also not final, though I'm told it will be ActiveHome related.

Screens look good. Will the Device screen have indicators of what state it thinks each module is in?

Currently I can only guess this would work similar to AHP However with out the module I can only Presume.
If it doesn't I'll make that suggestion.
here is a screen shot of the device setup page.
Note: Devices need to be added from the Device Page you can't do it from the Room page.

I don't own a smartphone. I hope there will be an option to set up and access the X10 wi-fi controller via a traditional PC.

This is something I'll work on once I have the module. ;)
I'll also see if X10 has plans for this or if they're hoping for someone else( a third party) to develop it.

I like the layout and the general looks. I think they have a winner if they can just get it launched.

Yes, this is the Android App I'm told the iOS app will be similar but hasn't been created yet but will be shortly after releasing the module.
I'm waiting word on a windows app creation.

Latest word on a Windows app is that X10 wants to wait to see the communities response to the Android app first. ::) :'
Seems they plan to market this as a phone control first and Windows phones have a low market share I guess.

I won't know the workings of the timers until I have the module.
The app will not go to a timer setup without a connection.
The module is set to be delivered Friday baring no more delays.
Once I have it setup I'll be able to supply more info. ;)

I received the Wi-Fi test unit today and was going to post a few snap shots.
However note: this uses a prototype RR501 RF case and there are some things which will change.
I'm told the code wheel will be removed and I presume some of the text on the case will be too.
The pass threw outlet I assume will stay as it does work.
There is a led light which turns blue once it has connected to your router. This is located where the 1- 9 switch would be
I'll comment more on the workings and its operation in a review thread but for now here is a teaser:

I just realized I hadn't checked how much power this thing used.
I had suspected it to be using just a bit more then the cm15a since it has Wi-Fi running.

I pulled out my Killawatt meter and compared the two.

CM15A
Amps: .05
Watts: steady 2
VA: 06
Hz: 59.9
PF:  .43 to .46

Wi-Fi module
Amps: .05
Watts: 1 to 2
VA: 06
Hz: 59.9
PF:  .31 to .34

These reading were made with both units sitting idle.
Cm15a was connected to the PC
The Wi-Fi unit had connected to the router

I'm told the Authinx production hardware build is ready.
It is based off the PAT03 similar to the proto type.
However the code wheel and antenna have been removed.

Seems the prototype was hand made and the RF board wasn't fully removed this is why I was able to have RF abilities.
In my tests RF only worked for the house code the wheel was set to. B:(
So it doesn't appear that this will have RF when released :'( But I've been wrong before.

The developer it sounds like is in the final stages of getting a new software ready as graphics where asked for to be added to the app.

Will we see this for Christmas 2015?  ::) :'
