Customer Reviews

Worked at first, now useless

Sure glad I got my A1 speakers dirt cheap, because this inept app renders those speakers almost useless.

At first, I was able to connect them to my speakers (individually, of course, but that's a whole other topic) and they worked fine. I understand that the app can't connect to both speakers simultaneously, but I would expect it to "remember" each speaker and let you choose. Instead, I would have to enter each IP address manually to connect. To add to the frustration, I thought changing to a fixed IP for each speaker would help, but doing that somehow stopped Pandora from working.

Now, the app won't connect to either speaker. I've tried restoring factory settings, rebooting my router and nothing works.

So, now each speaker is essentially no longer wireless and is only good for charging devices as well as storing my wedding ring overnight on the antenna.

Pretty good

I use the app with a Pioneer XW-SMA1. I use it only for Pandora and I really like the way it controls it. You can start Pandora playing on a station and, once you've done that, your iGadget is no longer needed. If you feel like interacting with Pandora, you can use the app to do most of the things you would do with Pandora's app.

It is important to note that the SMA-1 won't do Pandora straight out of the box, a firmware update is required. I did the update before attempting to use the app and I had no problems at all.

I only gave the app 4 stars because of a few minor annoyances. The most annoying: the station list does not always stay in sync with my "real" station list.

Won't connect

Nice looking speaker and works well enough as long as you don't expect the app to work too.

Like many Pioneer customers, I just wasted 30 minutes reinstalling the firmware (as per other users' kind advice—nice of Pioneer itself to bother giving that advice, eh? Oh wait…) and then redoing the network settings (which itself took three tries because… well, just because nothing about this speaker is easy)… but nada. The app still doesn't talk to the speaker. What a waste of time!

Pro Tip 1: If you can't make an app that's going to work the first (or—sure—second or third try) for the vast majority of customers, you're annoying A LOT of customers.

Pro Tip 2: If you want customers to buy your products again, don't annoy them.
