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!

What's New in Version 1.1.5
-Added the "CAUTION" message while iHomeSet is upgrading the firmware
For a "smart" device, the iD38 iHome is not very smart. I downloaded iHome + Set to set my alarms and get the device to work with my iPhone, only to find out that the "alarm" can be music (radio, playlist, etc.) but not a tone (no buzzers, bells, ring tones, or anything). I did download iHome + Sleep, which has a nice selection of wake alarms. But it took me a week to figure out how to get the iHome + Sleep alarm to work on the base. It turns out that you can't sleep to radio and wake to the iPhone alarm, because you have to MANUALLY switch the base input from RADIO to iPOD or AUX. I would think the app would override the input setting on the base, so that you can play the radio and still wake to the alarm in the app... but no. If the base is set to radio input the alarm on the app is inaudible. So you have to switch the base from RADIO input to iPOD input before you set the alarm in the app. To me, this is a major shortcoming in an "App enabled" device.
I got 2 of the clocks. And, after reading the reviews, DIDN'T download the app when setting them up. Without the app the clocks work fine, and even charges the iPhone 5. But, dumb me, I wanted to wake to a playlist. Without the app to interface w/the phone the only options are buzzer or radio. So, I installed the app...
Wow! It's SERIOUSLY BAD! The graphics and options are fine. What's wrong is that it crashes and looses random settings on a consistent basis. It doesn't pickup the alarms from the clock, nor the EQ, volume, or preset stations, etc. the weird part is that it did fine the very first time I docked the phone. The next time it went crazy. So, you set them manually (in the app) and they disappear when it crashes. Over and over again...
The worst part is that it turns the clock volume to ZERO when it crashes. For the money I paid, the app SHOULD work right. Pathetic development on iHome's part. They've played the Apple game long enough they really should be able to do much better. Sad.
I'm so glad I'm not the only one with the problem with the app The last time I used the app. was during the last weekend in Nov. It was until early today that I wanted to use it and that's when I noticed the problem with it showing the ihome picture and it saying it needs to be connected to a compatible device (or something like that). I tried another ihome with it , thinking it was mine, but same problem with app. Also, not sure if this had anything to do with it, but every minute or so my phone would make noise like I was taking out out of sleep mode, going to the main screen and flashing 100% charged. I thought that maybe it does that once it's fully charged. Although this morning was the first time the noise and flashing 100% flashes. Usually only does this when I take it out of sleep mode or if I get a notice from an appt. on the screen in sleep mode.
