Remote On/Off Stopped Working 1/5
Like other reviews state, remote on/off doesn't work anymore. Very frustrating when the app tells me I need to connect the speaker while it's connected and playing music. Great speaker features are no good if I can't use them.
Review for the app (not the ue boom2 which sounds fantastic!) 2/5
By Enrice Tortellini
What just happened to the app with the update? It used to work but now gives me a speaker not connected message... others are reporting this too. Please fix it.
This app crashes, has a strange static sound during playing half the time. Need to rebuild the whole app. Start from scratch. This app is garbage, I've had the UE roll, UE mega boom, and I currently have 3 UE boom 2 and all the other apps are responsive and work good....but not this one. Terrible...
Worked fine before 3/5
I've had my UE Boom 2 for about 4 weeks and it's been working pretty well until the last week. The app for some reason thought I haven't connects my speaker yet, and asked me to connect it, all the while it was playing my music through it. I decided to forget the device and try reconnecting, but the app still believed that I had not connected yet. Please fix!!
No longer connecting to speaker 2/5
Suddenly quit connecting to my speaker. Speaker is paired but app doesn't seem to care anymore. I see others are have same issue so hopefully an update will come soon to fix this new problem.
Connection issues 2/5
I love my UE's... when they're both connected to the app. Sometimes they both show up in the app but only one is playing music. Then when I pull the other up it connects it and the other stops playing music. This happens too often and I would think it would have gotten fixed sooner rather than later. Until then the sound of the speakers themselves makes my review 2stars.
i am very very angry, i've had my speaker for a couple months and it connected to my phone once. and then my friend connected and after that it never connected to my phone ever ever again. and everyone else's phone w little problem. so whats the deal? i don't know couldn't tell ya, but i'm pressed. bc i want it to work, and i've had it too long and now i cant return a 200$ speaker (((:
Very Disappointed 1/5
Recently purchased my 1st Ultimate Ears a UE Boom 2 and although I'm able to connect the speaker and play music, there are problems with the app! The Alarm does not play the selected music, it plays random songs from my music library that are not selected (you also do not have the ability to remove selected songs). The Remote On/Off also does not work. You can remotely turn the speaker off but, you cannot remotely turn the speaker on (I have an iPhone 6s so this option should work but it doesn't). After reading other reviews of this speaker and the app, I will most likely return the speaker. It does not preform as promised. Very disappointed in this purchase!
App not working properly 1/5
Re-download app several times and I still can't use the equalizer or alarm functions. It keeps says I need to turn on speaker and pair. Even when I have music playing through the speaker via blue tooth.
Used to be good 1/5
Before the last update, doubling up was easy and worked. Now it never works. Go back to the old format!
App not recognizing ue boom 1/5
By Katz boo
I needed to update the software. I thought your app would help me but in fact it's not even recognizing the speaker! That's bizarre.
Works well so far 4/5
Works well so far. Cool app.
Worked perfectly before.... 2/5
But this version is buggy. I can see my second speaker when I switch between mode screens (regular, partyup, block party), but the huge black instructions on party up and block party block the speakers entirely so they can't be selected.
Sounds great, but... 1/5
More than half the controls in the app either don't show up or don't work. Double up has disappeared and PartyUp never finds second speaker. Should have stick with Bose
App does not recognize connection 1/5
The app doesn't recognize that my device is already connected to UE boom..i.e. the app is completely useless. This functionally means that UE brand should be considered a single speaker brand where customers should NOT be encouraged to purchase multiple speakers.
Update process needs work 3/5
The app itself is just fine but there are updates too frequently considering the inconvenient process for applying said updates (where you can't use the speaker or your phone until the process is complete)
App won't sync with UE Boom 2/5
Love the app, but currently my iphone7 can't "locate" the UE Boom Bluetooth signal...
App not connecting to Speaker 1/5
I downloaded and re-downloaded the UE app and have followed all of the pairing instructions in the FAQ as well as troubleshooting and all I get is the "How To" coming up. I can't use the equalizer or other options. It says my device is not paired. Ugh. So frustrated as the app is no help!
Doesn't detect device 1/5
Useless. Does not detect my Mini Boom even though it is connected and working. Tested with multiple devices and multiple iOS versions.
Works with one speaker, not two 1/5
This is not that great. Impossible to add a UE Boom 2 speaker. Bluetooth on speakers is weak. I like the sound, but overall am disappointed in the purchase.
Latest version is buggy 1/5
By Randomly selected
Used to work great, but the latest version is buggy. Not only will it fail to connect to the speaker, but attempts to use this app will stop the Bluetooth setting in prefs to stop working requiring a reboot.
Useless App 1/5
This app cannot detect my ue boom and even though it is playing music from my phone the app claims there is no device connected. Great speaker horrible app.
Double Up Doesn't Work 1/5
Would you like to waste your money on two separate speakers that DO NOT pair together? Or spend countless hours of your life trying to pair them? Then this is the right purchase for you!
Feelings crushed.... 1/5
My UE Boom app was working perfectly fine until recently. Now I can't control it from my phone at all. The app doesn't recognize that the speaker is on. 'How to' shows up instead of the power button. What's the point of an 'app' if it's not doing its job? My poor little heart is crushed.
Remote power 3/5
After I updated the app I don't know how to use remote power and it's turned on
App is buggy and I think the software downloaded to the speaker is as well. Noticeably shortened battery life on the speaker and the app constantly crashes or is unreliable. Cannot use alarm setting anymore as it instantly crashes the app. Please fix so my speaker is usable again!
Great but one problem. 5/5
This is a great app except for the fact that when the alarm goes off it doesn't play the music I picked at does something random. Please fix this!
New version of app won't recognize that my Boom 2 is on and paired, despite the fact that I'm listening to it.
Update on UE Boom 2 1/5
Ever since I updated the app I have not been able to connect my ue boom 2 to the app. I can connect the speaker with my phone and play music but the app itself does not read it. Please fix!!!!
Ue Boom 2 1/5
By Kyle mangrove space
It worked well until I updated it... Now it crashes every time I open the app. Please fix
Needs some updates 3/5
By Abc awsomebuttcuttingcheese
Love the speakers. But I think I should be able to partyup with ue rolls as well as booms. And it would be awesome to be able to blockparty with multiple speakers not just one.
Terrible for voiceover users 1/5
This app still does not work properly with voiceover. This needs to be fixed. Apple is all about accessibility, this app is far from accessible.
Works but... 5/5
Please add the Wonder Boom to party up please!!! 🙏
Keeps crashing 3/5
When I open the app, it keeps crashing. Since the update, I haven't been able to properly open the app. I'm not sure if it's just a problem with my phone or something.
Thanks for the update 5/5
By Trice skinny
My e u boom is back. I can't live without it. The new update on the app is working fine now.
Don't think "remote power on" is a real thing 1/5
By dab _2016
This app is terrible. For a company in the electronics industry, one would think you guys could get this right. App NEVER powers on the speaker. I have 2 UE booms that I have never ever been able to double up using this app. I just bought a new UE boom 2 and I doubt things will be any different. The app is integral to using the functions for which we pay. If the app doesn't work then the value of your product decreases substantially.
They don't even care 1/5
The speaker is great I love it! This app however is useless! What happened to being able to turn the speaker on and off from the app? That was the best feature...imo. With so many 1 stars where's the fix? Where's the good faith effort? Does the company even use their app?
Needs Work 3/5
By Old Big Man
I went out last week and purchased a second Boom because it could be "doubled up". Spent hours trying to do it with my Dot. I eventually called help (very poorly named). I eventually found that the instructions for doubling up and the actual way to accomplish the task are not even close. I have been able to double up on my Iphone and it works well. There is apparently no way to do it with my Dot or my Echo. I don't know for sure because the TWO emails I sent to support have not been answered. There is no app available for my Ipad. The app has not been updated since Dec '16. I think that is an exceptionally long time without an update, especially for an app that doesn't work as it is supposed to!
Works great 4/5
Easy setup combined with great app functionality confirmed that I made a good purchase. Just the ability to power on/off the speaker remotely is handier then I imagined. The sound is crystal clear even with my phone on another floor of the house. I was surprised by the negative reviews of the app and claims you had to get a "newer" app from a Logitech web site (which is impossible). Like it so much I ordered another speaker to pair.
DOES NOT PAIR WITH IPHONE 1/5
By De Lucca
UE BOOM was working fine with both iPhone 6plus but now the phone does not recognize the UE BOOM device. Just got iPhone 7 and downloaded UE Boom app and new phone does not recognize device.
Party up doesn't work 1/5
It says both speakers are connected. It is wrong, I can only get one to connect. I have even tried to put all the sound to one speaker on surrounding mode. The other speaker just drops in volume and the one I want to work still makes no sound at all. Manually putting them together is only way that is full proof. Without the app.
Atrocious downgrade 1/5
The latest version has eliminated the ability to "double up" (now called "party up" two speakers. This is unacceptable.
I give up on UE Boom 1/5
I wish I had read these reviews first. The app etiher does not download or does not work. Also simlar to others, the sound quality, BT or wired connection, has degraded. I now hate UE Boom. Pretty silly way to lose customers, but see no need to buy them any more.
Support is almost as bad as the software.
Kinda disappointed 1/5
Bought two of these ue boom 2 speakers and am kinda disappointed with the compatibility between my iPhone and having two of these speakers on one platform. They don't synchronize properly and it's poor connection. Maybe I should have just stuck to buying the sonos !
Update made things worse 1/5
By Commander Keen
Speaker was working great until I updated the firmware to 10.0.13 Now it disconnects randomly from my devices.
Works first 5/5
By Say whaaa?
Saw the negative reviews. What's that all about? Maybe old versions or hardware???
Received the speaker, started charging it, turned the speaker on, turned on Bluetooth on my iPad, connected just fine. Menu on app said firmware update available, updated to Ver. 2.0.101, took 3 minutes, turned on the music on iPad and the speaker worked just fine. Lowered the volume from the iPad app. (Whoa ... speaker works Grrrreat! Finally some volume after of years of not much sound). 5 stars with a 1 speaker hookup.
Just doesn't work - all errors 1/5
This app used to work for me - I could double up and use all features. Now I can't get the app to recognize that the speakers are connected - it just says 'something's wrong - power cycle'. Also - cut the crap with the cutesy phrasing on the error messages. It is infuriating, and feels flip and trite rather than friendly.
Can't update 1/5
Says it's so easy to update but won't let me do it
