Great Speak but Horrible App

I’m impressed by the wonderful sound this little speak reproduces, especially compared to the two (2) Sound Touch systems I’ve own for a couple of years.

The iOS App for the Bose Home Speaker 500 is horrible, especially compared to the Sound Touch App!

I cannot find the Internet international stations I have as preset stations on my Sound Touch 30. I cannot turn off the system either from the App or the device (no on and off physical button)!

I was using the Bluetooth fiction to play music from my iPhone X. The songs kept breaking up, the volume varying on its own, and I got annoyed so I stopped using the 500.

I found the “equalizer” (for the bass and treble) during the initial set up (I fumbled through it), but could no longer find it.

Alexa was easy to set up — but Echo Show is far superior for Alexa usage. Clearly, the sound of Bose 500 beats even the new Echo Show 2.0 by miles.

However, I’m returning this Bose 500; the App is not ready for prime time. And maybe the Bluetooth receiver and chip are defective on the unit I bought.

Bose should try to incorporate the best features of the Sound Touch App into the app for the Bose Home Speaker 500, which looks gorgeous and produces wonderful sounds, but . . . .

Works fine

Not sure if people realize that maybe it’s not the app? Perhaps it’s their mobile device or network causing the issues...

People are very easy to rate something very low when they don’t understand how a product works and the intent of use. These people are just buying things without doing the research...

I’ve had mine setup and running well since day one

Fails to pass the sign on screen after update

I updated the app on December 13, 2018 but had not used it since. Today I opened the app and it would not let me go pass the part where you have to select/approve the new licenses and privacy agreements. It would give an error called “Invalid request signature”.

I ended up having to delete a reinstall the app. I don’t understand how a company so big and with such great products can fault something so simple as this. Remember, you can’t even sync new speakers unless you use the app. It’s basically like if the remote controller stopped working the unit is basically useless. Please fix this Bose.
