Lightning connector version works with iPhone 5

I'm sorry that others have had trouble with the 30-pin version of the ICF-CS15iPN. I do not doubt their experiences trying to work through the 30-pin-to-Lightning adapter. I know it has some limitations and have experienced them myself in other situations. My experience with the D-Sappli app has been positive. When I placed my iPhone 5 on the dock, it displayed a message that I needed the D-Sappli app and offered to take me to the iTunes Store. I consented, and was, understandably, distressed to see the low ratings on the app. I downloaded it anyway and was pleasantly surprised. It asked if I wanted to sync the dock's time with my iPhone's and after I agreed, it did so flawlessly. Then I set the dock's 2 alarms using the app and tapped "send"—and they both updated on the dock. So far everything seems to work as intended. Perhaps the adapter is the problem rather than the app.


I'm your customer service

I wrote a previous review that when I upgraded to the iPhone 6 and IO8, the app would crash when opened. Of course there's nothing by Sony offering anything in the way of customer support so I was ready to just forget it. Then I though just for the hell of it to remove it from my device and then reinstall it. Since doing that, it's been working fine. The app was successful in syncing the phone to the clock radio, and with the iPhone bigger screen, the clock display looks great. The alarm works as advertised too. It's low on frills but it does what it says it's supposed to do. People should read the specifications carefully though. I can't be sure that putting an adapter to connect the clock radio to a non-lightning iPhone will work.

App no longer operates

I bought this docking system for my iPhone 3s but now that I have an iPhone 5c even if I try using an official 30 pin to lightning adapter, the D-Sappli app does not allow me to set the alarm, change the time setting, or set any music or radio stations. All i can do now is charge my phone. This app makes my Sony dock useless. I am disappointed because I invested a lot of money in this system but have not been able to keep it operational since the March 2014 update. At that time even with the 3s, the alarm was not reliable, I cannot use the remote, and now the 5c won't change to the alarm and radio station setting screen. It only displays the time on the phone, not allowing me to sinc to my dock.
