Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
NOTE: This application requires a compatible SmartLink speaker or alarm clock, available through major retailers or online at gear4.com. For a listing of compatible models, please visit gear4.com.
SmartLink gives you total control over every feature of your SmartLink compatible speaker.
You'll never have to set the time on your speaker's clock again - the app does it for you when you dock your iPhone or iPod touch. You'll never have to set alarms the hard way, pressing up and down buttons, going past the time you meant to set in the first place - set alarms on your iPod touch or iPhone and they sync to the speaker's clock automatically. Wake to iPod music, FM radio or the app's large selection of built-in alarm sounds. The configuration possibilities are practically endless.
The SmartLink app also gives you full control over the FM functions of your speaker. Tune all stations with a single tap, reorganise stations to your liking, get the station name and what's playing automatically (where your FM stations support it), switch stations using the hardware buttons or the onscreen interface and much more.
SmartLink pushes the boundaries of hardware and software integration to a complete new level. Any feature you use on the hardware is displayed in the app, while any control you use on the app is immediately sync'ed to the hardware.
• Autotune FM stations - no need to manually tune.
• Edit station lists - remove or add stations as you wish.
• Remote Control - Remotely control a docked iPod/iPhone via wifi using another iPhone
• SmartLink App unlocks additional features in SmartLink speakers.
• Alarm and Time sync - never set an alarm clock the hard way again (AlarmDock Halo only)
• Fully featured built-in MediaPlayer - no need to quit the app when you want to listen to an iPod track
■ iPhone 3GS, 4, 4S or iPod touch 3G, 4G
• iOS 4.2.1 and higher
■ SmartLink hardware device

Why does this app no longer work with my iphone 4S?
I bought the Gear4 speaker approx 6 months ago and this app worked perfectly. Then about a month ago the alarm abruptly stopped working, the app no longer syned when my iphone 4S was attached and the remote stopped working. For some reason it would only allow me to use the beep as an alarm even when setting it to play music. Presuming something was wrong with the unit I took it back to where I purcahsed it and exchanged it for another unit. However the same problems persisted and when I checked the reviews it became obvious that there was nothing wrong with the unit at all and that the problem lay with the app which for reasons unfathomable to me no longer works with my iphone 4S. Bizarrely it still works with my sons Ipod touch (go figure!!). I have tried downloading the latest update and it STILL DOES NOT WORK despite the assurances given on the blurb above.
As the main reason I bought the speaker was so I could wake up to music and not an annoying beeeping sound it has rather made the purchase of the unit pointless. Until Gear4 sort out the app DO NOT BOTHER purchasing this unit.
Further to my review below and the lack of response from Gear4, I have made contact with the following message:
"Have you read your APP store reviews lately? Have you bothered to read your contact forms?
You are now clearly mis-selling your products as they no longer perform the job you advertise them to do. Reading your reviews I feel there will be plenty of support to start joint legal proceedings to ensure the re-imbursment of costs for products purchased that no longer function.
I await either your comments, apologies and an APP update to fix the problems all YOUR CUSTOMERS are now experiencing."
It would be good if we could all cut and paste this message and send on to show a willingness of intent
Spent £49 on docking station/alarm based on the interaction between this app the iPhone and docking station. Worked a treat, but then an update to iOS 6 and it no longer works and I have no alarm and after 3 weeks I have another expensive piece of electronic junk!! You need to fix this app urgently, people have spent a lot of money based on it working.
No Problems Here!
I have had no issues with this app whatsoever; as described by other users. Easy to set up and great interface!
If you are having issues with the app you can easily resolve them by doing one of the following:
(A) Double click on your home button and close the app, then restart the app.
(B) Don't use the app to set your alarm and just set your alarm via your iPhone; this way you know it will definitely wake you up.
(C) Don't use the app to play your music; just launch your usual Apple music app and you can still play & control your music, on your Gear4 device.
Simples! If you are determined enough, you will always find a way!
