Ratings and Reviews
Great idea, but flawed....
It's great to configure headset, provide pairing information, talk to other users with the same headset, and store the user manual. However I own the 350, and am unable to configure the parrot button- which was one of the reasons I picked up the headset to begin with.
Another great feature is being able to configure how much sound is required to activate the mic, so you can cruise with your windows down and not have it kick on the mic. Especially useful when dictating or giving Siri voice commands. I use an iPhone 6 Plus.
Not bad for free app
The app is simple to pick up and start using. It's a lot like regular text window except it's voice recordings instead of chat bubbles. As my wife pointed out, you can already do this from the text screen on iPhone. I will say the benefits are that the ptt key is bigger and more convenient, the voice quality seems better, and you don't have to choose to keep msgs or they disappear like the default iPhone voice chat. I don't have or use BP headsets so can't really comment on that part.
I'd love to love it but.....
I wish I could love this app but currently it isn't working on my iPhone 5 - both hubby and I have the Blue Parrot B250 XT+ headsets, he has a Samsung G5 and the app works perfect for him - I can hear him in the walkie talkie mode but he can't hear me - nor does the push to talk feature work on my phone - so I have to give a great big zero for the iPhone 5 but would give it a 5 star rating for the Samsung G5!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
