What's New in Version 1.1
A great idea with a great speaker, still buggy
I bought one of these UE Mini Boom speakers and it sounded much better than I expected. I couldn't stop wondering what two of them would sound like "doubled up" with this app. So I bought a second UE Mini Boom. And I don't regret it. It sounds even better! So much good sound comes out of these little speakers!!! / Sometimes the app works right off the bat and you can eaisly hook of both speakers and the sound is amazing. But sometimes you have to fight with it for a bit before it works right. But I think the end results are worth fighting with it. I like the way this sounds when you have two of them hooked together at once. / Also, sometimes the sound will drop out for a second for no reason. I don't care for that, but again, it's still worth these drop outs to have that great paired sound of both speakers. I have also noticed that when paired this way with two speakers the sound will drop out if you stand between one of the speakers and the iPhone/source. STILL............ when I go into my garage to work, I bring my two US Mini Boom speakers and hook them together for a roboust sound instead of my Bose Mini Link or any of my other Bluetooth Speakers. / Makes me wonder how much better the bigger UE Boom would wound "doubled up" or maybe even the UE Mega Boom ?!?
Works great once you've figure out how to add them...
I bought a pair of UE Mini Booms today. After much trial and error, I have now had success using them in 2x "doubled up" mode on all my devices - both my iPhone 4S & iPad 3 with this app, as well as my iPod Nano and my Windows 8 PC without the app.
At first I could not figure out how see them in the app, so I could double them up. The directions provided did not work, as far as I could tell. I could tell from reviews that some people had success, but others were complaining the app was broken. I found that I first had to connect to them individually in iPhone's Bluetooth Settings. Then I had to relaunch the UE app before I was in business and could double them up just fine. The directions I read made it sound like you could find them and connect directly thru the app without having to go into the device's Bluetooth settings, but this was not true for me.
Although sound drops out in "stereo" mode, it is fine in "double" mode. However I'm not sure whether this is an issue of the app, or rather specific to the device design itself??? (When doubling up without the app, it defaults to non-stereo "double" mode).
I do think there are several reviewers that are trying to pair the wrong model of UE speakers. This app requires that BOTH speakers be "mini boom". It won't work if one (or both) are not the "mini" version.
UE MINI BOOM vs UE Mobile Boombox
I was having trouble connecting my speaker with this app until I stumbled upon an important issue: the UE MINI BOOM & UE Mobile Boombox look identical.
They're two separate products released within years of each other but share the externals. I was only able to discern which model I had by looking on the underside of my speaker & noting the "Mobile Boombox" there, in tiny font.
Therefore, this app isn't connecting to my speaker because it's NOT a UE MINI BOOM. I can't fault the app for that but wish Logitech/UE had built in more intelligence into the app, like s simple message saying 'Please verify you have a UE MINI BOOM (check underneath for your model, UE Mobile Boomboxes aren't supported).
I still love my speaker & it sounds great to me but s bit more transparency would've been appreciated. Hope this helps you all.
