Fixed - numerous additional bug fixes.
Was Working Until...
I generally don't leave reviews. It has to be an exceptional app or really awful. This app falls into the second category. It was working fine until the update. Now I can't control the speaker from my iPhone. If I have it connected to the audio of my TV/DVD, I have sound. When I launch the app and connect it to Bluetooth so I can control the volume, the speaker disconnects. So now I'm forced to keep getting up, adjusting the volume, sitting down to see if the volume is alright. Then when I change stations or watch a new movie; the process begins all over again. This game of musical chairs has become old. I honestly don't understand how or why, this or any other company, can have major flaws for an update to the point that it's rendered useless. Isn't the point of the update to "fix minor bugs"? Has anyone developing the software at this company heard of Beta test? I have been a part of many with Apple when they are developing a new IOS. At a bare minimum, the employees should have been testing it throughly before a release. I suppose when you have sole rights to develop an app for your own product it doesn't really matter. Honestly, what can any of us do? We own the speakers and for most of us when can not return them at this point. All we can do is discourage friends and family from buying the speakers. Maybe when it impacts the profit margin, someone will act on rectifying the issue. Until then...
It USED to work...
The app passed with flying colors for the longest time. Sure I'd have the occasional bump in functionality, but it was never anything I was unable to solve myself. For some reason, overnight it would seem, the apps for both the UE Boom and UE Megaboom no longer detect the speakers. Note, my iPod connects over Bluetooth just fine, it's the application itself that is at fault here. I use my UE Boom as my alarm for work and school. It isn't the biggest inconvenience in the world to have to go back to my iPod's built in speaker, but once a guy gets used to something he's going to want it to stick around. I've been a happy customer ever since the first iteration of the Boom, the first model became my alarm and backup speaker. I really love the product and want to see the companion application do well. If it's because of IOS11 then I'm out of luck because my iPod is full to the brim and has no space to accommodate the update. I hope a patch of some kind gets released soon.
Remote power works, but speaker not recognized
Adding to the other reviews about this. When I first got my boom last year, it powered on and connected with Bluetooth automatically. It now powers on remotely, but sends me to the "Lets Hook Up" page, even though already connected. The app needs some work to correct this please.
The speaker is a great product once connected. Sound is good and has plenty of power to cause complaints from offices down the hall if I turn it up on a Friday afternoon. Battery life seems good, I play music about 2 hours a day in the office and only charge it every other week.
Devs please take a look at the app problems, we would love to have our solid product back 😀
