Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Designed to match the beauty of the Cocoon and developed to further enhance your Cocoon experience, the Denon Cocoon App is the one thing you are missing if you purchased the Denon Cocoon (or Cocoon Portable) Speaker Dock.
As soon as you install this App and dock your iOS device into the Cocoon, the App will automatically select the background color to match the color of your Cocoon and it will also select the same language to which your iOS device is set. The App also offers you the easiest way to integrate the Cocoon into your home Wi-Fi network: you dock your iOS device into the Cocoon and follow the on-screen instructions. The only thing you need to enter is your Wi-Fi network’s password.
The Denon Cocoon App also features a premium music player for your iPod music library to play your music, create Playlists or simply add songs to the Queue. But you’re not limited to your own music, with the Internet Radio feature you can listen to thousands of free internet radio stations from all over the world. When connected to your home Wi-Fi network you can further expand your choice of music by using the Music Server to browse and play all the music that is stored on your PC, Mac or Network Attached Storage (NAS) drive.

What's New in Version 1.0.5
Good as a remote
Totally controls your cocoon from your phone or tablet. Its a shame there isnt facility to save or even name preset internet radio stations but this is probably an issue with the hardware. It would also be nice to have a 'utility' section on the app to check for firmware updates etc but as a remote, the app is pretty decent.
