Lousy app. Logitech should be embarrassed.
Speaker is the worse at connecting, dropping connections, etc. Zero customer support!
What happened? 1/5
These speakers used to sound great. Latest update killed the sound on these especially with songs with base. No equalizer setting has been found to bring back sound quality. I might as well have purchased Walmart speakers. They also dont stay connected and crackle. Fix this please!
Great Speaker, Tough App 2/5
By Sam is tired of this
The speaker is great and the ideas they have for the app are awesome, but they just don't really work. The alarm is cool but won't play any music anymore (no matter what I select) which makes waking up a lot tougher. The app is buggy as a whole and missing a couple major necessities (more native alarm allowing you to choose what days it's on/ set multiple alarms, revamping tap controls, etc). I would recommend these speakers to anyone, but for now, I wouldn't share the app

Turns on and off from app 5/5
Pretty good, that's all I really wanted.
Stop with the updates! 1/5
This last update has greatly reduced the functionality of the speaker. It can only stay connected to one device at a time, so I can use the remote on and off controls or switch back and forth from my laptop to my phone to play music.
edit-the app has become so buggy lately, with things crashing constantly. This time the app crashes every time I try access alarm settings. I used to recommend the MEGABOOM to everyone but now I think it might be wiser to warn people since the app makes using the speaker frustrating!
Crashes and locks up 1/5
I wondered how the app was getting such low ratings and now I understand why. It basically does nothing other than allow you to adjust some of the settings, set an alarm and turn on and off the unit. Unfortunately that's where it ends as all it does is crash in lock up in between. After you set it up initially you might as well just delete the app
No alarm 1/5
Alarm doesn't work. Please fix!
What a waste of an app 1/5
98% useless. Only works 2% of the time.
Another cheap piece of gear that never works. Taking them back today after asking all the questions, trying to get support and still won't connect. These aren't cheap so why the app does not work with them is totally stupid. Fire your developers and start again!
UE Megaboom phone app 1/5
I purchased a second Megaboom so that I could utilize the double-up feature. I can see no way to download the new 2.3 version even though my app store screen says it's been downloaded. it did not transfer to my phone. The previous version did not have the double up listed as a feature. So, I'm very frustrated. I will now simply double-up manually. It would sure be nice if Logitech went back to customer phone support because website instructions are useless. Even the u-tube instructions are not helpful.
No longer pairs multiple speakers 1/5
This updated app is worthless. I used to pair multiple speakers with friends at the beach/pool. Now it won't work. Wake up Logitech!
No problems 5/5
I don't understand what people don't like about it. What do they expect a speaker to do besides play music and change the volume
Won't work 1/5
All I want to do is sync up 2 megabooms and it won't work. Old version worked but now it's broke. Tried everything. Get your act together UE!!
Annoying software for an otherwise decent product 1/5
The app is always asking to link more speakers. All I want to do is power on and off the speaker and be able to use the EQ settings. I wish they would master the basic function before they try to sell me crap.
Only good for powering on 2/5
By Ethan Jan.
The speaker itself is excellent. The app, though, is terrible. It's really only good for powering on the speaker remotely with your phone, which is convenient. The app sometimes doesn't want to connect to the speaker, and because of that the alarm works about 70 or 80% of the time - not very reliable for an alarm.
The feature I try to use the most on the speaker is the party-up feature that allows multiple people to connect to the speaker and allows the app user to kick people off, or skip the song. It's extremely finicky. Getting it going is great and easy and allows my friends to connect easily - it essentially puts the speaker into a prolonged discoverable mode. The problem is that the app crashes or disconnects from the speaker, so the device with the app completely loses control. This is very frustrating because it allows people to hijack your speaker, per say. Cool feature in the app that I'd love to use more, but unfortunately don't use much because it will inevitably fail on me.
Good news! 1/5
You can use Settings to sync to bluetooth.
You can use Music app to select and play.
All without ever using this dismal app.
Typical Logitech... really nice hardware design.
Software apps... not so much.
Alarm does NOT work 1/5
I need waking up to music in the morning in order to feel energized, and ever since this update the app will crash every time I use the alarm. FIX IT! Could you guys test the updates throughly BEFORE releasing it to the public? The allowed this update pushed out to the public should be FIRED. He/she ruined the company's reputation which can't be fixed with an update.
By Red in U.S
One of the worst apps I have ever had. Despite the quality of the speaker, the app is useless. I have not bee able to connect my phone with the speaker for about two weeks now. A simple task of whether the battery is charging or not is not even clear. Incompetence at its best.
Solo control but no block party. 2/5
The solo control for my UE megaboom works great. Turns on by control and everything. But using block party was way sketchy and would bump people off. Would glitch with texts even when no one was doing anything. Fix the connection problems and I think it'll be great.
Truly amazes me!!! 1/5
Like many others for the recent update the app work fine what truly amazes me is how quite often this is the case with many companies. Something is broken but then they break it. For the people who did this & allowed it to be released should be fired. Then sent to prison for absolute stupidity, stupidity too dangerous to be allowed in public. But hey that's just my opinion. 😁
Alarm doesn't work 3/5
Honestly, I have only one speaker so I can only rate the main features of the multi-use app. The ability to update the speaker through the app is awesome and I love the ability to remotely power on or off the device. However the alarm part does not work. Whenever I set the alarm to a specific song, it resets to none selected when I close the app or exit the menu. This needs a fix.
App won't open with newest update 1/5
App was working fine but I was notified of a new update v2.3 - now the app won't open. Have tried restarting my iPhone 6 multiple times and uninstalling and reinstalling the app. App usually worked great for me but now I am unable to use. When I touch the app icon it shows like it's going to open for a second and then flashes back to my home screen.
Great Hardware, Bad App 2/5
The speakers are beautiful and sound great. But the app is horrible, crashes and drops out frequently enough that I consider the system only marginally usable. Seems to be related to a recent app update. I would steer clear until there are reviews that show improvements in stability. I would be ashamed to sell such beautiful speakers over the poor performance of the app.
What did you do?? 1/5
This last update is awful. Prior to the update had no issues. Now NEVER connects have to go and do it manually each time. Even if was listening like an hour earlier. Keeps dropping or can't find second speaker. PLEASE FIX!!!
Doesn't work smoothly 2/5
The app has bugs, it takes forget to manage more that 1 speaker. Please fix! Love the concept!
TWO BOOMS? No way! 1/5
Before the update I could connect to two MEGABOOM's with no problem. Just updated the app and now I can only connect to one. Really guys? This is your best effort?
TWO DEVICES, CONNECTION SPEED 2/5
Product is very good by itself(speaker) but app have to be more polished. A lot of sharp edges like
YOU CANNOT CONNECT TWO DEVICES AT THE SAME TIME,
IT TAKES MUCH MORE TIME (10-20sec) FOR PHONE TO CONNECT TO SPEAKER when you turning it on wirelessly via app then it was before (a couple of updates before)
I love this speaker with all my heart but these problems must be fixed to say it's ready to use with ease and the way they describe
It sound very well on a phone and easy to connect. But it was a let down due to the fact it had no instructions to connect to a television and pretty much had to buy an aux cord just to connect it
Speakers don't pair 1/5
Connection to pair is broken, will only play one Speaker.
Launching the app 1/5
Occasionally starts in a black screen with no functions.
Smart Bluetooth still nonfunctional 1/5
Great speaker won't double up 1/5
By Trojan Dave
The speaker sounds great but more tha an one speakers will not work. Customer services ignores this. Too bad, but don't buy this until fixed
Volume issue 4/5
I'm having issues with turning up and down the volume using the app. everything else works great
GUI & EQ 4/5
It works amazing!
However I would like to see options to configure the GUI and more EQ options.
ALARM ISSUES 2/5
It does not play the music i choose. It just randomly puts on music from my library that i did not select. Other than that.. i dont have issues, PLEASE FIIXXX
Piece of crap! 1/5
I have 2 UE megacoom speakers that are right about $300 apiece. When I first downloaded this app, you could fairly reliably and easily hook the two speakers together and get true stereo. Now that entire functionality has been removed. This app is pure crap, and any decent software engineer would be horribly ashamed of this excuse for code. This junk has more bugs than a tourist hotel room in Moscow.
Ok Bug Repair Guy, Let's Fix This! 2/5
I can be jamming on my UEBoom; when ever I get a phone call on my iPhone Your App should be able to directly connect to my iPhone ear piece and pause theUE Boom.
Boom doesn't charge with recent update 1/5
My boom has been charging for 3 hours and still says "charging, please wait." My friend's daughter can't get a charge on hers either. She's been charging hers for an hour and a half. Her boom is less than a year old. Please advise.
Phone app won't turn on MEGABOOM 2/5
My MEGABOOM won't turn on from app anymore. I read that this feature was removed, is this true?
FYI: turning on the speaker from the phone app was the selling point, so it would be a huge disappointment if it was removed. That, and the fact that it's waterproof.
2 stars: until the app feature turns my MEGABOOM back on! Otherwise it'd receive 5 stars from me, because for the price the quality is up to par.
Pairing Problem 2/5
Pairing is not working!!
Not worth the price 2/5
Has a good 360° sound. I like the fact that you can turn the speaker on with your phone and not have to do at the speaker itself. I like the app with the equalizer and other settings. It only gets two stars because for the price you pay $300 it's not worth it! Prior to this speaker I had a JBL Bluetooth speaker that sounded very good for a lot less money.
I've tried to get the alarm part of the app to work but every time it goes into the alarm the app crashes. Other than that I love this speaker. Has excellent sound and clarity.
3 stars for the idea, zero stars for execution 1/5
What's the old saying? They can put a man on the moon, but they can't make a Bluetooth speaker app that actually pairs two speakers at once. Whatever.
This is app never, ever works on the first (and rarely the second or third) try. VERY frustrating. When it it does work, it sounds great. Seems like a problem that should be solvable. We're not asking for cold fusion, just that the Party Up feature works without ten tries. Maybe a few more hires in the engineering department?
Won't even go past the first screen. How can I set this up if I can't even get past the first page?
GREAT speaker..... current version of app, NOT great 1/5
By 1Cool Daddy
This app used to work great for connecting multiple speakers, now it doesn't even connect to ONE speaker. It's all in the app, but we were all sold on being able to connect multiple speakers, I just checked their site and it is STILL promoting that feature.... the APP does NOT work with current software on iphone and their most recent update that they MADE me update. Fix the app already UE
Honestly great job 3/5
Let me first say that this speaker (Megaboom) is great. Better than any I've heard. It's also really cool that there's an app for it. I really wanted to give it five stars but the alarm feature is frustrating.
I think it would be perfect if you could create a playlist, which the app will then randomly select a song from to play for your alarm. That way, you can just preload a bunch of music, set your alarm time and not have to worry about anything else.
On everything else, it's a 5/5. But because I hold UE to a higher standard I'm giving them a 3 because I'm hoping they'll actually create the perfect app+speaker combo.
It used to be flawless, how you guys messed it up so monumentally, is beyond me. I would gladly take a refund in an instant. I will never by another Logitech device again.
Let me turn on my speaker remotely from app please 2/5
I miss that feature. A lot. App is good in general but that remote turn on is missed very, very much.
