iHome Set is for use with all app-enhanced iHome models. iHome Set requires iOS 4.3 thru iOS 7 on iPhone, iPod touch & iPad.

A note to iHome App-enhanced product owners:
Building on the success of the hardware settings features within the widely popular apps, iHome+Sleep and iHome+Radio, iHome Set provides users a simple, quick-access app for hardware settings, alone. Many loyal users of iHome+Sleep and iHome+Radio requested such an app. We listened, and iHome Set is the result. Thanks very much for the feedback, and we hope many users will find iHome Set makes their iHome products even easier to use. iHome+Sleep and iHome+Radio will continue to offer advanced alarms and internet radio features, respectively. With the presence of iHome Set, Sleep and Radio will continue to evolve in a complementary fashion. We're very excited about what's in store!

Limited initial functionality made worse by update
I've had this product for a few years and was never entirely happy with its limited functionality. You have very few choices as far as which days you'd like your alarm to turn on (your choices are: weekday, every day, or weekend. Even my phone allows me to pick individual days, so that on MWF when I wake up early for the gym, my phone alarm will automatically turn on without my having to set it the night before. With this alarm clock, I have to remember Sunday, Tues & Thurs to set my alarm to turn on at a different time.) Also, you only have 2 alarm preset slots; so I use one for waking up on MWF, another for TTH, and I'm out of presets. If I want to wake up at a different time on Saturday, I have to adjust one of my presets.
Recently, they decided to "update" the app, and since then it's been near unusable. It crashes constantly, I have a hard time turning the alarm on & off using my phone, and the option to set the alarm to a specific radio station is gone. I thought it would just turn on to whatever station it was last on, but no, I woke up to static yet again this morning.
This product is a good idea, but the execution is poor, and they just can't seem to get it together.
This update is horrible
I have an older iHome radio - 30 pin dock - which I used with my older iPhones and the app worked great - although a bit limited and inflexible as far as setting multiple alarms. One year later, purchased an iPhone 6 and had to use a lightning cable - whihc worked fine with the app. Fast forward two years, same iPhone 6 running iOS 10 and this recent update. I cannot control any aspect of the clock with the app and the same lightning cable plugged into the back although it appeared the alarm was set correctly and set to wake me up via the radio station preset. With my job my time to go to work can vary and missed being late one day thanks to my wife, the second time I was an hour late. I was able to utilize the controls on the clock but that defeats the whole point of owning this $100+ clock. This needs to be fixed.
This app is simple. It helps you set the clock settings on your iHome brand products. NOTE that the app only appears to do something when you dock it to the clock.
I just replaced the kids' old 30-pin connector iHome clocks with the Lightning connected models (got one for me, too) and we use this app whenever the time changes or the power goes out.
It has other functionalities such as letting you adjust the clock's dimmer, radio volume, etc. (if your clock has those functions), but we only use the time adjustment feature. It claims to check your firmware and update it when necessary, but we have never seen a firmware update with any of our iHome clocks.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
