What's New in Version 3.4.0
App performance improvement and minor improvements
Hearing Aid finder works
I have used the app primarily for adjusting my recently purchased hearing aid settings and switching programs including streaming from TV. But today I lost my hearing aid on the golf course but found it with the help of the app's finder. It truly was like finding a needle in a haystack. After I realized I lost my right hearing aid, I got back in a cart and tried to retrace my movements while playing. I did not keep the app open when I did that, so when I finished without finding the hearing aid, I thought it was gone. But when I went back to Costco to file a lost claim, the hearing aid tech suggested we look at the app again and sure enough, it noted that an hour ago (when I was on the course looking) the hearing aid was near the 6th hole green. So I went back and sure enough the app worked like a digital geiger counter and I found the missing aid in about 5 minutes. Amazing that I found it! Even if you don't like other aspects of the app, it is well worth it for the "finder."
Phone app good, Watch app fair-when it works at all
The iPhone app is a great tool that I use many times a day to adapt my HAs to the changing environments at work, home, restaurants, etc. I like it better than messing with the button on my HAs. Pretty reliable and fairly quick.
The Apple Watch app has been problematic and has stopped working recently. Just get a spinning emblem that never connects to the HAs. Tried deleting from watch and then from iPhone and reinstalling a couple times but no luck. Even tried it on a different watch. No difference. When it was working it was a bit slow but great for subtly changing the mode to/from restaurant or increasing the sensitivity (volume) when talking with someone. Wish it still worked.....
Update 30 Dec 16: Exchanged several emails with the company. After going thru normal trouble shooting steps they eventually said "take it to the Genius Bar - must be something wrong with the phone or watch". Since it's the only app having problems I was skeptical to say the least. Yep, Apple says everything is fine with the hardware. It's an app issue.
Smart contains a number of useful features, the most important being the Sound Enhancer, which can help you develop a healthy number of your favorite settings by enhancing/suppressing sound/noise in different hearing environments. And don't count out the ability to adjust base/treble settings; they can really help you in noisy restaurant situations. If you have streaming devices such as the mic clip and TV streamer, you can select them right on the app -- and you can further customize those settings as well.
The only silliness I've found in the app is the "Locate your hearing aids" feature, designed to assist in finding your hearing aids if misplaced. The only trouble is: The hearing aids must be powered up to be located. Now, who would take their HAs out without disconnecting batteries? Exactly. I can see where this might be a useful feature for HAs with rechargeable batteries, but ReSounds operate on Number 13s.
