What were they thinking?
The previous version of DockStudio had its bugs, notably a tendency to lose the <pause> option when changing playlists. There was cludgy workaround—restart the app—but it *was* annothing. This version solves that—by eliminating playlists altogether. Bad idea. Here's some shortcomings of the new version.
1) lack of dimmer control so the screen isn't too bright for the dark adapted eye.
2) no alarm clock
3) no access to downloaded mp3's
4) inaccurate location and weather data. My DockStudio thinks I live in another town. I'm glad I don't, since the temperature there is, apparently, always -1° F. When I try to type in the name of my own town, DockStudio says I'm not on the network. It lies.
5) bizarre defauls. I mean, Centigrade temperatures and 24 hour clocks?
6) sleep timer that won't run in the background. Check the weather and the timer conks out. OK, this was a problem with the earlier version, too, but that don't make it right.
The newly added features, e.g. the slide show, aren't of any use to me.
In summary, a tolerable app has been transformed into a useless app.
Okay then. This used to be a great alarm clock app with the speaker dock. I would have given the last version a four star because it was a great app I would have like it better if it could make the screen darker even with the backlight switch activated so it is dim. With this latest version I don't even think it is an alarm system anymore. All it does is how you pictures in a slideshow and stuff like that. It is a dumb app now that it is no longer an alarm system. I am definitely going to uninstall this app within the next week if I don't get help with this problem soon. I am one of the first reviewers so I know that the pop makers or somebody will read this review. I am very unhappy with the update. What happened with the alarm clock feature? I do like the dock though.
We used the DockStudio every night as a way to help our children go to sleep. They removed the ability to select songs, such as lullabies, from our own playlist, and now we can only use their radio application which is not suitable at all. They also got rid of the sleep timer which was a terrific function. So, basically this update removed the main two things we used the app for. We have now deleted it and will have to use more than one app to replace it -- Apple's own music app and timer app, neither of which have a built in dimmer function. At any rate, this update turned one of our very favorite and definitely most used app into something completely useless to us. The definition of FAIL, for sure. Wish I could check 0 stars.
