I like it but

I went through the tutorial and built my speaker using a phone that I don’t have anymore. When I still was using said phone I enjoyed using the app with my speaker(especially tuning it) but I soon lost what I had saved on the app when my phone died due to water damage, so here I am with a new phone and downloading this app in anticipation to tune my speaker aaaand I couldn’t get past the second part of the tutorial because it wanted me to go through the steps of building it all over again! I was really upset with this and although I don’t need the app to use the speaker I feel like being able to tune it and change the LED sequence were really nice features, so Bose I’m begging you please make it so that I don’t have to go through the tutorial all over again for something I already built!

I was great until

The same thing happened to me that happened to “VantasChild”, it was working perfectly until the iPad until I was using broke. I tried to use it on my new phone but it was impossible to complete the second step because I had already put together my speaker. It still allows me to play music, but I would also enjoy having her ability to tune it too. Thanks
