What's New in Version 2.1.0
• Support for retina displays
• Usability and crash fixes
I'm not sure why the fm transmitter they make now requires the use of the app now on iphone 4. I had transmitter of a similar model that got stolen where all you had to do to use was plug it in and press play and i could play from lock screen so I didn't even have to unlock my phone. Now I have to unlock my phone, open the app, then plug the transmitter in, then go to my music app and find the song or playlist I want to play. Just because there's a play button in the app and info on what song it is doesn't mean I'm ever going to use it. Ever. The only redeeming quality is the ability to find clear channels around it based on location. I would sooner not have the app though because of how cumbersome it is. If anything make the app an option to use with the transmitter not a requirement or at least make it so that I do t have to open the stupid app first before it recognizes that I want to use it. You guys have taken a step backwards in my opinion.
I've been hearing that people with iPhone 4S and up have been able to plug and play. I really hope that you guys fix this soon. Getting really annoyed with this app on iPhone 4.
works well so far
I have an iPhone 4, live in the northeast (with a gazillion FM stations), and I have zero techno/IT capabilities. I downloaded the app via WiFi (while in my car), attached the iPhone to the mount, enabled the GPS location feature in my system preferences, and pressed play without any problems. My family and I drove for an hour (the day before this post), had to find a reliably unused FM station which required a few station changes which was a little annoying but overall it worked quite well (excuse the run-on sentence).
I got this as a birthday present over a year ago and it worked perfect with my iPhone 4s updates and all and now with my iPod. Every time I plug my iPod in it says it needs this app but I just ignore the message and it still works perfect. The app is not needed.
