Ok, but needs work
I am having a lot of fun with my sphero, but not so much with this app. I mean, sphero itself has all the hardware it needs to make it amazing, but this app needs work. At first, I used this app as my main driving app to control sphero, and while the tricks were quite impressive, the actual control wasn't. I have been experiencing some noticeable delays between commands and such, but I know this isn't because of my phone or the sphero, since these problems don't exist on the sphero drive app. I prefer this one way more since it is much more responsive and more simplistic rather than having to wait for all the animations to pass by when going into settings. If this app had the simplicity and responsiveness of drive, while having the array of tricks, it would be the perfect app. For now though, I highly recommend drive instead.
Ok, I love my Sphere and I definitely recommend getting a Sphero. I love how you can make it dance and do tricks. But when I updated the app, it was retracting me how to do things, and my supply drop that I did was just a practice and I have played supply drop before.
Some of the apps that the box shows and the app says they have aren't in the App Store. For example, the box shows Sphero Pet and so does the app. When u looked up Sphero Pet in the App Store there were no results. That is the same with many apps.
There should also be more tricks for Sphero. I only have like three more tricks to collect. I love the tricks that are already there though.
Sometimes while I'm driving Sohero around the calibration changes and Sohere goes a different way than I wanted it to. I don't know if I'm doing that though...
Anyway there is way more things that I love about Sphero than I don't like. I love all of the color choices. I love how you can play games with your Sphero on the app like supply drop. My dog chases my Sphero around and it is so much fun. Once again I recommend Sphero and this app. Sorry this review was so long. Please take my ideas into consideration.
Visually-impaired Users, Almost a hit but needs work!
I brought Sphero and downloaded the app as a gift for my son who is visually impaired (very low-vision) but can see bright lights. He can actually see Sphero because the robot illuminates brightly and he can see all of the colors on the orb BUT the software for the device is NOT compatible with VoiceOver. This would be a great accessibility feature and gadget if any of the control features within the app could work with VoiceOver. Since the controls do not work with VoiceOver or even with Siri, the app controls are useless for anyone with visual impairments.
