My son got his N7s last week. I was hoping that this app would be useful. It's opposite. It's unreliable. Sometimes it gets connected to N7s sometimes not. Sometimes it only connect one of them when both R and L are open and working. It changes the program settings frequently. I select a program and when I check later on R and L setup to different program. It should not stream the phone rings, audio and phone calls to the N7s since I adjust the settings in general settings section. But it streams all of them into the N7s. I check general settings. Then the streams come back to the iPhone but then it goes to the N7s back and forth. Very inconsistent and unreliable. Not sure if this is happening because of N7 malfunctioning or because of this app. Probably I'll remove it and use the remote control instead. All of this is happening while my son is in the range of Bluetooth.

I am a long time patient of one and eventually went bilateral in 2007 with Cochlear Implants (my very first implant was back in 1989). I have worn almost all of their processors and now here I am with the two N7s and I love them. I love them even more because of this app.

It allows me to control my volume right on my phone which I have on me at all times (instead of looking for a remote) and hear so much better when I am on a call.

My favorite part is streaming the music! It makes my running at the gym more enjoyable and I can run forever. I’m so happy this app was created as a perfect match for the N7s.

Nucleus Smart App


I am also having all of the issues mentioned above. I contacted Cochlear chat and was told to download the “current” version because Apple was supposed to have fixed all of these issues recently. So even though I doubted the version in the App Store would more current because I have automatic downloads, I deleted my current Smart App, downloaded the Smart App again, then spent all the time to set it up once again. No improvement. AT ALL. My situation is worse!
In fact, now my N7 will not even pair to my iPhone at all. Did the app I just downloaded corrupt my iPhone’s pairing ability? This is a disaster!

Unfortunately, I am older and have to use a magnifying glass to be able to read the small remote control. And my arthritis makes it very difficult to use the buttons. Plus, the remote is so small that it does not have the same functionality previous remote controls had.

Why would you upgrade a processor and downgrade the remote?? Then produce a faulty app that is the primary way to program the N7 processor? It makes sense no sense at all.

I am so unhappy with the situation that I may well go back to my N5.
