Even with two cats and two dogs in the house, my wife's (and mine) sinus issues are so much better. Honestly, you can hardly tell we have pets in the house. The carpet and hardwood floors are CLEAN, and virtually dust/dander/hair free. One of our family is highly allergic to cats, and he can come into our home and stay for hours without any reaction. He use to need a Benedryl after being here for an hour (even with the cats locked-away)... now not even a little redness or itching of his eyes.
The App is simple... used for starting, docking, or scheduling... not for "controlling movement", but it works well for what it does. We primarily use Google Home or Amazon Echo devices to tell her to clean off-schedule, or to dock when she's running at an inconvenient time.
The coolest thing is the Eco mode... it is whisper-quiet, and still manages to suck up a lot of pet hair and dust, even with the lower suction setting. We just started scheduling a quiet-mode cleaning at night, so she runs twice daily. We almost don't need the big upright anymore... ALMOST....
I think the best thing about this robot vacuum is that the dogs and cats aren't afraid of it. My Great Dane is a typical Scooby... he is afraid of his own shadow... and terrified of the upright vacuum or remote-control cars, but he lays on his couch, or in the floor, and lets our little robot do her job without paying her any attention (unless she bumps into him, and then he just moves... not runs to hide in the corner). The kitten sometimes likes to chase the edge-cleaning brushes, but lately she's given-up on trying to catch them ;)
This little Shark Ion robot cost a little more than our Shark Navigator upright, but it has virtually paid for itself in time spent cleaning our house, and the reduction of allergens/irritants. I will definitely recommend these to all my family/friends. Everyone needs at least one for every floor of their home!
I have photos.

Not much set up required to get it up and running. The initial charge does take a while which dampens some of the enthusiasm. But during that time, I decided to set up the app, give my vacuum a nifty name, and link it to Google.
First real disappointment... it does not connect to Google Home. Instead it connects to Google Assistant. What that means is that when you want to use Voice to get the vacuum to clean, you have to tell Google you want to talk to the Shark App, wait for that connection and the Shark Assistant to respond, and then tell the assistant to start the vacuum or to dock it. Needless additional steps, in my opinion.
Once it was fully charge, I set it on clean and sat back to watch.
I like that it has two sweeping brushes to bring dust and debris to the vacuum itself. It did a fairly good job of vacuuming in all areas and even areas under the bed which are notorious for gathering dust. It even managed to transition smoothly between carpets, hardwood, and tiles. So, if you're looking for a robot cleaner that can clean well, this can do the job. But...
Second disappointment... it is very inefficient. It basically seems to head in a straight direction until it hits an obstacle and then turn around and go off in another direction. And yes, I do mean hit. It bumps into everything! There's no smart sensor telling it to stop just shy of the obstacle so that it can still sweep right next to the obstacle without actually hitting it. So, it only took one run around my house for the robot to come back with a few scuff marks from hitting stair railings and other hard objects. It's supposed to have proximity sensors but the only time they seemed to do anything was when it was at a ledge or the top of some stairs.
Also, because it has such a random pattern for cleaning, it takes forever to clean any one area and I don't think it even realises when it's actually done. I watched it clean one small room for over 35 minutes and it would have kept going if I didn't stop it. With a regular vacuum, I could have been in and out of that room in 5 mins tops! So, it can clean well but it will take a tremendously long time to do it. I did originally envision setting it on a schedule to clean the lower floor overnight while we slept but, given how inefficient it is, I doubt it'll be done by the morning since it'll take forever to clean one area and then head back for its lengthy charge. So, if you're looking for a good robot cleaner that can clean well and save you time, this isn't it.
Third disappointment... while the robot was running, the app does not sync properly with it. So, even though it was out and about, it thought it was still docked and charging. So, using voice or the app, I could not tell it to return to the dock. I had to go find it and hit the Dock button... might as well carry it back at that point. Similarly, when it did register that the vacuum was out cleaning, I could return it to its dock but the app will still think it's roaming around.
It has a fairly strict maintenance schedule. Seems to require a lot of cleaning every use or weekly. And things like the filter cannot be cleaned with water and reused. Just tap the dust loose after each use and replace it periodically. Does seem like any time the robot saves me from vacuuming, I'll end up spending on cleaning it.
FINAL VERDICT: If you're using this robot to clean a small space, it can do good work. It's not very smart but it can get the job done eventually. In my case, I returned this one and have upgraded to the Shark RV2001WD which has better proximity sensors, and most importantly, maps the room. That way, it cleans the room in rows and knows where it left off so it can resume cleaning.
