Embarrassingly bad app
This app is truly awful. Besides allowing you to turn on Turbo and surround modes and view battery life, it doesn't offer any functionality that isn't already done better by pretty much any other music app out there. Volume control is jumpy (and limited to ten digital levels with nothing in between on IOS 9). Playback options are rudimentary. It won't even let you pair with Bluetooth from the app -- something you have to do every time you turn the speaker back on -- nor can you turn on the speaker remotely. And how about a settings option that lets you turn off the annoyingly bright lights and goofy sounds completely? I really like the speaker but I am so disappointed in this company's commitment to delivering useful and timely firmware and app updates.
Connectivity and controls usage is easy but the problem i had was that it automatically logs in as soon as phone is in range of speaker which interferes with usage. Couldnt figure out what was going on at first and when i did it was difficult to get out if it in order to go back to what i was doing.
Have downloaded and deleted app twice now. I sure hope improvements are made soon. Love the device itself however: Brilliant.
You do have to first wave your hand over the Turbo X to turn it on and this also pares it to your iPhone. Then with the app open you can see the battery condition, control the volume, see what artist and song is playing, skip forward/back/pause, mute, control stereo effect, turbo, and turn the unit off. It’s a simple remote, but works well. Nice to be able to control things from across the room
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
