Great Sound Update
The improvement in sound on this latest update is awesome - exactly what Sonos was missing - and it far exceeds any updates to the app itself. I switched from a Bose home theatre (jewel speakers) to Sonos in Oct (Playbar, sub, and Play 3's for rears). For the price, I like the wireless speakers (no wires, no receiver, run everything off your smart device), but was not impressed with Sonos's sound quality, and considering returning all of it....until this update. The sound before was hollow and difficult to hear people speaking unless you turned the volume way up, and I don't always listen to music or watch tv loud, and for the price, I expect good sound at lower levels too. Like my old bose system, I can now watch tv at low volume and get great sound. I think the sound at low volume is now better than bose, and when you turn the volume up for movies, big sports games, etc, it leaves Bose in the dust! (Sorry, I've only had bose before, so I can't compare to anything else) Sonos has made me a believer again - and being able to improve the sound with a simple online update just shoes how far ahead of the game they are. I now know my Sonos experience will only get better, and all it will ever need is a simple online update! I will be buying more Sonos speakers for the house. The app is great - I have no idea why people rate it so low - I think the app works perfectly.
iPad app has lost its genius layout and intuitive workflow.
This new iPad app has ridiculously LARGE ICONS and so much wasted open space. Why did the designers not use the previous version of the iPad app as a guide to what is intuitive, efficient and smart workflow to a multi room and multi user environment. Now everything is hidden and so many extra clicks and extra swipes and scrolling to do the same thing. Absolutely no balance... Extremely large ICONS with tiny itty bitty buttons and large ALBUM ART and a tiny little circle with 3 dots to indicate timer and then tons of O P E N. W I D E S P A C E. I actually thought this was stuck in some type of handicap mode.
Now Sonos hardware is great and the mobile app is good (except for the useless large album art) so not sure why Sonos was so inconsiderate to multi room / multi person users that architected their systems based on the previous iPad app. Sonos obviously has no problem pulling the rug from under their customers. There was tons of backlash on the Sonos website but the company quickly diffused it by spreading out the complaints and asking to only comment on individual features and not the bad overall design.
SonoPad is an alternative iPad app that makes much better sense. Not as good as the previous Sonos iPad app but a huge improvement over this new Out of touch app. I challenge anyone to explain the overall improvement on workflow or being intuitive on the iPad compared to the previous version.
Excellent System-Excellent App!!!!!!!
I do not get the negative reviews. I have had the Sonos system in my home for over a year, and have NEVER had a problem with the system or the app. True, when the latest upgrade to the app was rolled out, it was counter-intuitive to the original app that I was used to, but after using it for a few days, it was just fine. In fact, I think that if Sonos were to release the previous version, I would probably find that to be counter-intuitive now.
As to not being able to play certain iTunes songs, take that up with Apple. That is not the fault of Sonos.
The ability to play music in each of the rooms that have speakers, combined with the simplicity of controlling the system on my iphone and iPad, combined with the ability to place the speakers where ever I want since they are wireless, combined with the almost infinite selection of music, combined with the great sound from the system, makes Sonos BY FAR the best system around.
