SmartLink Wireless is a FREE music/radio/alarm clock application for iPhone, iPod touch or iPad. It’s designed to enhance the functionality and usability of your speaker, giving you full wireless control through your iOS device.
App-enhanced with SmartLink Wireless:
•Complete Wireless Control – Control your speaker over Bluetooth.
•Auto-Sync Time & Alarms – Set your alarms, dock to sync (on supported hardware)
•Wake-up to FM Radio or Music.
•Auto-tune, Save & Edit FM stations.
•Dim your speakers display – Use swipe gestures.
Wireless Remote Control
Use an iPod touch, iPhone or iPad to control the speaker from anywhere in your room, over Bluetooth. Pair your device with the speaker and launch the SmartLink Wireless app. Scroll through your iPod library, check this week’s weather, set your morning alarms and dim the speakers display, all from the comfort of your seat.
SmartLink includes a built-in music player to access your entire iPod library. You can search for songs, browse playlists and even display album artwork in full screen, without closing the app.
Animated Weather Display
Wake up knowing the weather. The SmartLink app provides you access to animated weather based on your geographical location. It displays up-to-date weather information, current temperatures and the high to low temperatures expected for that day. You can also take a glance at forecasted weather for the next five days, allowing you to plan for the week ahead.
Create and save alarms within the SmartLink app, whenever you’re on the move. Simply dock your iPhone or iPod touch before getting into bed, launch SmartLink and your saved alarms will be synced with the speaker. There’s no excuse for being late to work.
The SmartLink app offers you a flip clock or digital display, which can be used while playing music or FM radio. Alarm times are shown on the clock display and if your speaker does not include alarm clock functionality, SmartLink adds this feature. Create as many alarms as you need and choose to wake up to your favourite music, FM radio or changeable alarm sound.
Dimmable Display Using Swipe Gestures
Don’t be disturbed by the bright night time glare. Swipe up or down between the alarms and clock display to adjust the brightness on your iOS device. This also adjusts the brightness on your speakers display, simultaneously.
Auto-tune, save and organise your favourite stations. Automatically find all FM stations in your area with the press of a button. Your FM stations are stored within the app. You can also rename stations making it easier for you to switch between your preferred stations.
The SmartLink Wireless app features two display styles: Steel and Digital. Instantly switch from one style to another and personalise the way your speaker looks.
•iPod touch (3rd and 4th generation only).
•iPhone 4S, iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS.
•iPad 3, 2 and iPad.
•iOS 5.0 or higher
•SmartLink Wireless hardware device

What's New in Version 1.7.4
Is anybody listening?
This app worked on the first day it was used. Since then...nothing! Bluetooth will not connect but comes up with the advice to make sure everything switched on and in range - how basic can you get? Reading other reviews it seems I am not alone and I wonder if anybody from the developers reads these reviews. If they do why don't they care? Much of the value of the Gear4 dock is lost by this app's uselessness, and immediate action should be taken to sort it out. I'm not holding my breath though given previous inaction.
I was bought a House Party Rise 2 wireless for Christmas. I already owned a plug in House Party speaker which is great. My husband bought me the Rise 2 to go in the bedroom. I knew what to expect with the App. Only thing is it doesn't work. With the normal plug in House Party the app appears not to work until you plug the phone in and then everything springs to life. With the wireless version nothing happens full stop. It makes it an extremely expensive speaker and it will be going back to HMV unless the Gear4 team can sort it out.
Sort it out for goodness sake!
I got the Gear4 Party Portable and thought the wireless app would be ideal in lieu of a remote control. It seemed to work well for three days but then each time I started the app it took me straight to the settings option with no way of getting back to the control panel. I deleted and re-downloaded twice. Powered off my iPhone. But no change. There's obviously a bug and plenty of comment which is doing Gear4 no favours. Please sort it out fast.
