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.
Cannot pair up 2/5
Since latest update cannot pair up my speakers, before the update it was no problem
Terrible update 1/5
I have the same problem as many others. Can't double up, crackling sounds and audio quality seems to have gone down.
Bring back the old app please.
App doesn't recognize speaker 1/5
My speaker is connected via Bluetooth, like it always has been and it won't recognize the speaker at all. I am stuck on the main part of the app. Worst app ever.
Thank good you don't need the app to play music or I would be S O O L.
I own 2 megabooms because I wanted to pair them and play music in different parts of my small 800 sq ft apartment. This app use to pair very well and had the ability to turn both speakers on/off and I was a happy feet customer. The latest update took away all the stability with the pairing process and the ability to power on/off both speakers. Now the paired speaker crackles in and out of sound, will randomly un-pair, or both will stop playing music altogether. I hope whoever designed this latest update is updating their resume because this is awful.
Love my mega boom but the app??? 3/5
Absolutely love my Megaboom UE deff. delivered a great speaker. But, the app doesn't even work, I just redownloaded it on my iPhone 6, and it won't even pull up the app. Very disappointed with that. But still love my megaboom.
Remote on button 1/5
Bring back the feature that let us turn the device on with the app
App is crushing 1/5
Guys! Please go figure - we are in 2017. Such a good product but the app is doesn't work properly- keep crushing - c'mon seriously ?
App doesn't work 1/5
Are u f***ing kidding me company way to big to be letting a glitch of the magnitude go on for so long. Needs to be fixed as of yesterday. Love the speaker but can't use any app features witch is way unacceptable for the price u pay. This should of been fix the day this issue acquired. UE you should be embarrassed that u would let this go on for so long. You guys are suppose to be a top of a line product. This disgusts me that u would allow this.
App doesn't work!!! 1/5
I just bought a second UE Boom speaker. I was prompted to upgrade my firmware on both speakers. It updated to 99% per speaker and then it told me there was a problem! Now I cannot use any ofny speakers. Extremely frustrating- if you pay top dollars for a product you expect that at least it should work!!!
Embarrassingly Bad 1/5
Poorly designed and buggy. Regretting purchasing this good sounding yet infuriating speaker. Sigh.
The app worked perfectly until the last update and now refuses to pair with all but one Megaboom making it impossible to update the others. PartyUp connection also crackles in 2nd connected speaker. Please fix this app as the speakers themselves are perfect.
Won't sync anymore 3/5
Used to LOVE this while it worked. It's still fairly new, yet it won't sync or connect to Bluetooth at all. So it's useless.
Yet if it ever connects/works again, I'll change my review to full 5 stars!
UPDATE REQUIRED, THIS IS AN OUTRAGE 1/5
Why is it that you cannot update to fix these minor problems. Your app is very nice but when you like to take nice and turn it into awesome? Do you want to work at McDonald's or do you want to be the head of a corporation nobody wants to make seven dollars an hour I want to make $7000 a month it's just an example. Quit messing around and fix it Jesus
Thumbs up 3/5
Great app! I just wish it had a sleep timer as well. I love to sleep with my music on but I don't like that I wake up to it. Also if there was some way to put a password that would be wonderful. I have a lot of unwanted people connecting to my Boom.
SHAMEFUL and EMBARRASSING 1/5
UE (Logitech) is sleazy on its best day, if it cannot produce an app that works and is an actual upgrade from the previous version. There is a firmware upgrade available at this time, but it is a big gamble whether or not you should choose to install it. This company needs help and there are plenty of folks who "know how to code". UE get help, hire somebody who can write you an app, please!! UE, you are shameful and it is embarrassing; young children have successfully written apps!! What is your problem? Are you that greedy that you would skimp on your app, that is not optimized for IOS (iPhones and iPads)??? I have several dozen apps installed on my iPhone 6 right now and they all automatically update with no problem. But UE can't get the job done?? So lame and inexcusable! They require using a Mac (OSX) or a PC with a USB port. UE what gives??
By Rye the impaler
Let's be clear. I love the device it's self, and I'm actually quite impressed with the clarity and range of sound delivered in its robust package. No complaints there. Yes it's large and heavy, but compared to most other oversized "portable" speakers it's surprisingly easy to carry around on a daily basis.
While on the other hand, we have the app. My biggest complaint is the fact that there is no ability to set a "primary" and "secondary" device; meaning that the user can set one device to be the only one to connect to it. Same thing goes for the secondary device, but is only allowed to connect after a certain period of time or after the push of a button. Without this, anyone who has connected to the device before can do so at startup.
Other than that, the only issues I have experienced are the minor bugs and glitches that everyone seems to be having.
Once the bugs are fixed, and some sort of security is implemented, I will be extremely satisfied with the product as a whole.
Works well. Some extra feature would be cool. 3/5
I love the app its convenient. It would be awesome if it had a sleep mode. I like to play nature sounds to sleep on Spotify but my speaker stays on. It would be great if I can set up a sleep mode from the app.
Doesn't work 1/5
Won't connect. Stuck on "let's connect" screen
What did you guys do??? 1/5
Please bring back the old app. I cannot even get this one to pair with my speaker!
Why would they remove the ability to turn the speak on from the phone? I don't understand. I can turn the speaker on and use it without the app. They removed the main feature. Boo.
Total Fail 1/5
Despite months of back & forth with ue support, my MEGABOOM app still will not reliably pair with two ue MEGABOOMs in stereo, the way the old app did. Given the price of these devices it is totally unacceptable to have such difficulty. I strongly recommend you do NOT buy the ue MEGABOOM in pairs or multiples if you plan to use it in stereo or synchronize with multiple devices. It will work occasionally after great effort, and why go through this?
App is crap - no longer works 1/5
stuck at "let's hook up" screen
Really UE 1/5
By Junior Gobin
I think the older version did better because now since this 'Update' the app is not recognizing the speaker even though the phone is connected to the speaker please fix this asap because we people loose the speaker or misplaced it and now we people cant turn the speaker on to find it as i said fix this As Soon As Possible ok UE
Great app match with product 5/5
This app and my mega boom have work flawlessly with each other and I have had no complaints at all!
Like the app, but notice one discrepancy 4/5
Just a nit-picky observation. The battery percentage in the app does not match the battery percentage when u swipe right from the home page in notifications.
Can't run 2 megabooms at once anymore 1/5
It works fine with one speaker, heck, I don't need an app to run just one. I need it to run in stereo again. $600 worth of UE Megabooms and I can only use them one at a time now. Horrible.
Great app 5/5
Very convenient and useful it really helps it unlock its full potential
I don't get why its rating is so bad 5/5
By Radi Bear
It works fine. It even has an equalizer, which is always a cool addition
Does not work 1/5
This app does not work. It does not find the megaboom, despite the fact that it is connected via bluetooth.
Horrible app 1/5
By The pink pigs son of pig
I received a mega boom speaker for Christmas and it works fine but the app doesn't connect to my iPhone 6s so I can't access any features whatsoever.
No longer connects to speaker 1/5
For some reason, the app will not proceed past the "Let's hook up!" screen at the beginning.
I have tried connecting/reconnecting and power cycles on all devices. I have tried unpairing/repairing. Speaker still sounds great, so I know it is paired, but the app never finds it.
So, 1 star from me until it gets sorted out.
Alarm not working properly 1/5
By DJ Yung Vibe
So there's two choices when it comes to music. Last played, or choose from your library. Every time I set my alarm in the UE app, I choose a song that I would like to wake up to. It's still reverts back to playing the last song from either my music library or Pandora. Very annoying.
what a frustration on the software side 1/5
EU Boom, apperance of a great product, on the software side lazy or inexperaince and consistant code writing. This app has opened twice for me out of many deletes and then 4 downland!!!
its not even a beta, why does this company keep on doing this. the web page gloss, the endless help pages, all a charade. have comunicated with them many times over many issues and have never ever resolved a issue.
Speaker Is Good, but the App Isn't 2/5
Some of the features offered by the Megaboom app don't work well enough. The feature to tap the speaker to play/pause and skip tracks is very unreliable. And after an issue updating the speaker's firmware, I question the reliability of that feature even though I got it to work on the third try.
The app also is not optimized for iPads and does not support iOS accessibility so users of VoiceOver can't use most of the app.
