Limited inventory 3/5
This is a great tool, if the item you want is in here. This app has been around for years now but still only has a small section of IKEA's catalog. It's useless most of the time you need it.
Incredible concept, very limited 3/5
The app is beautifully designed, intuitive UI, functions flawlessly. All props to the devs! Three stars only because of the incredibly sparse selection of items - probably fewer than 50-75(?) items total, yet IKEA carries literally thousands of options. If the database gets updated with a search function and a much larger catalog, this will be the best app in the store for AR decor. It’s really a great app, just not very useful bc of the limited catalog. Will keep installed to check for updates.
No Outdoor Furniture?? 2/5
Highly disappointed. The app only has one line of outdoor furniture and some kids furniture. The bondholmem line that I’m looking at isn’t included.
App works well (other than ‘missing search feature) but desperately needs more content.
If I could rate this 0 stars I would. 1/5
Rescanning doesn’t work, there’s no indication it even begins to scan the room except for little orange dots when you first start the app. Can’t resize furniture, and moving any furniture is terrible. Not intuitive, doesn’t work as it should, terrible app. Maybe AR just isn’t ready yet, or maybe IKEA dropped the ball, not sure.
Nothing happens 1/5
Nothing happens when you place furniture
Doesn’t work, few options 1/5
Disappointing. I got it to work once - or maybe only one of the items I chose worked. Very limited selections of products to insert.
Doesn’t seem to work 1/5
I downloaded this app today. It has an extremely simple interface. When trying to place objects in my room, I was presented with a bounding box for the floor, and several hollow circles when I tried to place objects. Beyond that, nothing! Are their hidden buttons/clicks/gestures I have to use to get the furniture to appear? If so, the app fails to explain how to get the furniture to show up in place of all the hollow circles. Or, the app is broken/buggy. Either way, it’s a total fail for me.
Missing many items and no way to search 1/5
This is missing many different popular collections. It’s very difficult to find furniture items and no way to search for them. It has a very limited selection.
Good idea/ doesn’t work 1/5
IKEA place app could be amazing but it never works. Each time I click on an item to place the circle appears but no furniture ever comes up or will place. It’s a big bummer. Hopefully they can get it fixed because I would use it ALL of the time. :)
Total garbage: furniture does not show when placed 1/5
Great concept but very poorly executed. Followed all the on screen instructions. Scanned my living space, selected a piece of furniture and pressed the check mark to place it in the living space. Item never appeared.
Great concept, needs work 3/5
This is a great concept, and when it works it is a dead useful way to plan out how you will use space in a room. However, it seems to work only intermittently even on a brand new iPhone 12 Pro with Lidar capabilities. About half the items you pick for the AR experience will show the placement indicator on the floor but as soon as you select where you want to put the furniture, nothing happens. At least half the items I selected to see in the AR view wouldn’t appear. When an item does appear, the app works fine and you can manipulate the piece of furniture to see how it will fill the space. Just needs some work/stability improvements to get a higher rating.
Crashes and items not searchable 1/5
This app crashes when I try to use it on an apple product. I want to set up a new living room and I cannot find my set of choice in the app. Not useful.
Update. I get through the terms and conditions and the app closes. Still not useful
Needs updating 3/5
I really like the app but it needs updating. A lot of things are missing and styles they have retired are still options. I clicked on a collection but no items appeared.
I think this is a great concept especially for those of us who don’t have a store close and need to really picture items in the room before driving hours to pick up items
BROUGHT IPHONE TO ITS KNEES! 1/5
This app has turned my phone dark, and slowed down my entire phone!
I cannot minimize or close the app. I had to turn off my phone to get it to close.
Finally, the app offers no way (that I could see) to plug in specific products I’m shopping for. I had to pick from pre-crafted sets that had just a few items actually for sale within them.
I will be removing this app as soon as I’m finished writing this review.
Even on an iPhone 12 Pro with LiDAR, this thing is completely useless. Doesn’t take into account anything else in the room. Completely pointless app, I’d give it zero stars if I could.
No Search Option? 2/5
I wanted to see how an Alex drawer would look in my room, but I can’t search for it. This is such an obvious feature that’s just absent in the app. It’s actually pretty surprising this app got released without search. It’s not really useful or convenient to me without that ability.
The UI is quite nice, but the app is honestly barebones with its feature set. I can’t even sign in with my web account to transfer my shopping cart or wishlist items.
Also don’t have the camera constantly running in the background while browsing the app. That’s just bad for performance and battery, and it shows in the app’s stuttering scrolling performance, even on an iPhone 11.
Dosent work with iOS 14 1/5
I tried using my iPhone for iOS 14 and I downloaded this app but it didn’t work. The ar was glitched and it sucked😡
Broken with iOS 14 1/5
The camera doesn’t work with iOS 14
iOS 14 support 1/5
Doesn’t work with iOS 14
IOS14 broken? 1/5
By Tim Szcz
App on iPadOS 14 on an iPad Pro 2020 there is nothing but a black void and some trippy lines appearing when you move around.
Doesn’t work 1/5
It doesn’t work with iOS 14 as the pics are blurry.
Not ready for ios14 1/5
Waiting for an update.
Fresh downloads from App Store to iPad pro2020 and iPhone 11 Pro Max on iOS 14 brought unusable app. Camera is constantly refreshing and doesn’t scan space.
Needs an update to work.
Black screen 1/5
I’m not sure if it’s because the app isn’t optimized for iOS 14 yet or if this version is just buggy but every time I open the app and go the screen where my camera is supposed to appear there is a black screen. I can’t use the app because nothing shows up on the screen. Disappointing because I really love IKEA and was looking forward to using this app
Everything floats 1/5
I have tried it against multiple walls, multiple types of light, and no matter what I do, it thinks the flood is in the middle of the wall, so everything just floats in space.
By James Mogan
No search function. Doesn’t have all the catalogue. Crashed within a few mins when trying to move a shelf.
No search option?!? 1/5
You can’t search for the furniture piece you want to view in you space? Really?? Either that or you’ve hidden the search option very, very well. Nicely done.
I wanted to see how a dresser would look in the bedroom. Downloaded app and got error code on connection every time I turned it on for half a day. Hours later finally started working and behind the obtuse UI with no search function that makes it unnecessarily hard to find a product you want to see, basically settle on fact that the app doesn’t even have the full (or even majority) product lineup. Just useless all around.
By Onur Olmez
Really want to use this app but am instead greeted with the following error upon launch: “Failed to get configuration with code 0: EMPTY CALL”
Only select pieces are viewable
Where are the beds? 3/5
I have a couple bedrooms that need to be refurnished, but there are no beds in the app to help with that. A king size bed of any style would be nice, and also the Kura to help with the kids room.
Can’t choose just any product to view in AR 2/5
I can’t choose any item from the store. I can only choose from a collection or a few different categories they’ve listed. They don’t have lamps/lighting available to use in AR. I went to Ikea yesterday looking for a lamp. They didn’t have it in stock. I figured I’d go home and order it online but just to be sure I like how it looks in my room I Downloaded This app to see how it would look and I can’t find lamps anywhere on the app. Why create AR to only use on a few products. Target does a better job.
Can’t allow access to camera on iPad Pro 1/5
When you launch the app it tells you that you need to allow the camera for the app. When you hit the button to go to settings, it takes you to General Settings. There is no separate listing for the IKEA Place app, and it is not listed for camera permissions under Security on the iPad Pro.
Good idea, but not made right 2/5
At first it was fine in the tutorial, but now everything appears very small and definitely not the correct scale.
Can’t search products 1/5
Honestly why is this so highly rated? I don’t want to “feel the room” or “be inspired” I want to see what a specific product looks like in my room. There is no way I can see to find the specific products I’m interested in.
Scaling is waaaaaaaay off! And you cannot adjust the size of an object. Every item I drop is 3x larger than what it is. Just crap UI, hopefully it will get better 🤞
it’s good 4/5
there should be a search button
Crashed more than 8 times in less than 10 minutes 1/5
By jose dave
Horrible app. It crashed in different area of the app frequently i felt ot was a race before it crashed again
Too few items to be useful, UI crashes at times 2/5
There are very few items with no choices of colors for it to be a useful planning tool. The UI is ok, but sometimes glitches out and has crashed even on my iPad Pro 2020 with the Lidar sensor.
Limited ‘rooms’ 1/5
The app didn’t contain any bedroom furniture, which was my main reason for trying this out. Would be great if you’re looking to check out furniture for a living room or office. But zero bedroom inspiration.
I would give it higher if I could open the app 1/5
The app immediately crashes when I open it up. I can’t even get inside. What a shame, I really wanted to see what it was like!
Great app, but crashes on 6s+ 3/5
I love IKEA products and found IKEA Places a great app!. However, it keeps crashing on my 6s+ :(.
Hope you can find the issue and fix it for the next release.
Technical difficulties 3/5
This app is great however I’m experiencing a technical difficulty. I’ve used the app before and it worked fine, and showed me the furniture options. Now its not doing that and instead I’m pressing buttons to have no response.
Great AR, but missing a lot of products 3/5
One of the best AR apps, but it’s disappointing not to have any of the Hemnes collection after all this time.
Why can’t you purchase? 2/5
I’ve found what I want, I’ve placed it in my room using AR, why is it so hard to purchase? Why isn’t the ability to purchase easier - even if it opens up the web page it would be more helpful.
I can see the intention but the execution is awful 3/5
There isn’t enough furniture selection. No options for beds/bed frames which was a big thing I think many try to plan out. Very disappointing
By ChancellorAce X
For some reason it was about to load, I was able to approve my phone’s camera and agree to the terms, but now it just keeps crashing. Didn’t even get to use it🤷♂️
Crashes ALOT 1/5
Just downloaded the app last night and tried to rest more objects but app crashes. Please fix ASAP! This is the only app that can do AR for setting up a room, great concept and features but definitely needs fixing. Would like to able to get some ideas since I love the store!
Edit: looking forward to a better update from the developers on what the app will be able to offer because this is a great tool to see the product before purchasing.
Why can’t search for items? Really...
It’s not good 1/5
By ipad pro (9.7)inch
It’s not opened in my iPad. Error “empty call”.
