Apple Music only?! 1/5
This app won’t see much (any?) use since it only works with Apple Music. Other apps manage to integrate with Waze, Pandora or other apps...but this doesn’t? Well that makes the magic button worthless.
Just plain terrible 1/5
I would give it zero stars if possible. The app continues to tell me to connect the megaboom 3 even though I am sitting here listening to music through it. The app is useless. Such a great product but lousy app development. I would love to use equalizer if I could only get the app to work. Plus the app drains the device’s battery. I wish I would of read the app’s review before I bought product. Oh well. Back to the store to trade in for another product. So disappointed.
Updated app doesn’t work 1/5
Until I updated this app I could work my speaker from my phone. Heck, I could connect my speaker to my phone. Now I can’t access it at all via app.
Speaker Doesn’t connect to App 1/5
When I first bought the speaker, it connected to my phone and to the Ultimate Ears app with no issues. When I went to my friends place later that night, I was embarrassed to find that I couldn’t change the sound specs like you’re supposed to in the app. The reason I got the speaker was to change the bass. Guess I shoulda got the JBL Charge 4...
Pure garbage 1/5
Bought three of these Units.
A year ago they worked ok.
Now, with every update they are useless trash.
They always disconnect and the volume is pathetic.
Please....do. It this garbage
Tip: Delete app THEN your speakers will work. 1/5
By The Treezy
When I had the app installed, the music kept pausing and skipping. After I deleted the app it worked fine. This app is so bad.
Wonderboom - No App for this Speaker 1/5
There is no App for the Wonderboom Ultimate Ears. It is the only speaker that doesn’t have an app to link to. Disappointed.
BOOM - app says BOOM unsupported 1/5
Used a Boom and Boom 2 together for a while now, suddenly, the original Boom is “unsupported” even after the firmware update the app told me I needed to do. It did not solve the problem. Please help! I emailed support to see if they can help me.
Fast & Convenient 5/5
Sync up and done!🤙🏽
Connection issues 3/5
I am clicking on the right speaker to connect to and it just won’t connect and I am very frustrated about it but otherwise it’s pretty good. I also had a problem with turning it on from the app so they need to fix that.
Terrible App 1/5
This app is absolutely terrible. While the original mega boom app wasn’t any better, at least it functioned. I can no longer use the old app and this app does not work at all. I connect my mega boom but the app doesn’t recognize it so all features are useless. It now functions solely as a Bluetooth speaker with none of the added support from the app. “Block Party” etc do not work.
Speakers will not connect 1/5
By קוס עמק
I don’t know why you guys felt the need to shut down an app that was running just fine and replacing it with this pathetic of an excuse for an app. The speakers now drain battery weather you like it or not due to the fact that I can’t turn off remote power settings but my biggest issue is that it won’t even function properly. The speakers will not connect to the app but will connect to my phone, which also doesn’t let me connect multiple speakers. Please fix this
Not functioning app 1/5
This app is more confusing and is not an actual good way to use your speakers they need to totally re-make this app in my opinion
Don’t buy it 1/5
Don’t do it
Hot garbage, won’t connect multiple 1/5
I have two Megabooms. They work just fine. This app is worse than worthless. As soon as it connects to both speakers, it just starts into a cycle of connecting one and disconnecting the other. Ultimately, it claims both speakers are connected and working in double (or stereo) mode but neither one produces sound. What happened to the Logitech that didn’t make garbage products?
App now broken, used to work, now I deleted it. 1/5
This version is busted. Used to work fine. Re-downloaded latest app and it now has me in endless loop of dialog to create connection with UE Boom 2 when I open the app. Seems more complicated than before. Deleting app and going back to straight Bluetooth connection. Seems like a step backward. Too bad. It won’t access a connection to my UEBoom2 let alone use multiple speakers. I’ll be shopping for a better more responsive speaker system. Oh well.
Awful App, don’t be cheap! Pay good money for an App developer!! 1/5
By don't h8, appreciate
I’ve owned all versions of the UE boom, retuned two different models because of terrible functionality through the app. I’m getting ready to return 4 Mega Boom speakers because UE just doesn’t get it! “The chain is only as strong as its weakest link.” Good sound, worst app!! If you are looking to buy A wireless speaker, DO NOT BUY UE!!!, until you see reviews that they have taken care of the app issues.
New updates app does not work 1/5
Just got a brand new megaboom today. Downloaded the app on my iPhone, works great, sounds great, then went to order a second one since the app shows you can pair two to make stereo playback. The app later promoted for a new update, so I downloaded. Now, it keeps on telling me to power up, press BT button for 3 seconds, connect BT to phone, but going nowhere. At its current state, the new updated version is completely useless. I may have to cancel my order for the second unit! Boo!!!
Cool but 3/5
By peachy queeny
Can we get the option to choose a sound for the alarm? Also, can we get a timer? So i can have it on for say... 30 minutes and it automatically goes off?
Deben actualizar la aplicación 2/5
Ahora no puedo encender mi Bocina por la aplicación deberían de hacer una nueva actualización 😡😡

Can not connect 1/5
By Mike 1988 d
I can’t connect my older model mega boom to this app. Bad software developers and stupid company.
App doesn’t work 1/5
Updated my UEBOOM to the latest version using the Mac app and the now the app won’t recognize it is updated. Please fix this issue as I’m not the only user experiencing this.
Need to go back to original app 1/5
Terrible for connecting and trying to use 2 megabooms is not happening. As much as we pay for the speakers this is ridiculous
Good Speaker, Crappy App 3/5
First off, my UE Boom 2 works great as a speaker, good sound, good bass handle, no tinny treble sounds. It’s a well made speaker to say the least. But this app. This cursed app is probably one of the single worst wireless connection apps I have ever used. It adamantly refuses to connect to my speaker so that I can party up, adjust the eq, or do basically anything with it. All things said, it’s a good speaker, but a terrible app.
Works okay 3/5
The new app is somewhat functional but it can be a bit buggy and it isn’t made to fit the newer screens in the iPhone X and so on
After a year 2/5
A complete hell. I have four of the Megabooms. We are going to fix it soon. Says the app. Yah. Right. Maybe next year. The app that makes stereo. Power down. Go to settings. Forget this device power down. Restart. Repeat. No one solution. Nice result but not for the casual consumer.
The latest update is buggy I can’t get my two speakers to sync to the app any more
The app will turn on the speakers but won’t connect please fix this was a better app then the last one
Won’t pair 2 speakers 1/5
By Bob Wetherille
Have purchased 2 Megaboom speakers at Costco. Can’t pair 2 at same time on IPhone 10. Total joke- returning second speaker
Don’t waste your time. Generic responses from app developer too 1/5
By V Tate Whit
All the negative reviews are the honest ones. I’ve tried, the Verizon store has tried multiple times to get 2 speakers to be used simultaneously with the app. Never worked. The app would always reject one or the other of the speakers. Both speakers have up to date firmware. The app is also the latest version. Bottom line.....this app has always been a p.o.s.
So don’t waste your time buying their products if you want to use multiple speakers for stereo sound. And it doesn’t even work as doubled up.
Crap! Crap! Crap!
App won’t recognize speaker is connected 1/5
The app will not recognize the speaker even though my phone is already connected to it, therefore I can’t do anything on the app :(
Cannot connect to older mega boom 2/5
I have 3 mega booms. 1 older one (purple) and 2 newer ones (red and blue, which I purchased at the same time).
With this version of the app the old speaker (purple) doesn't connect anymore. I tried deleting from the app and re-adding it and now it cannot even be added. I followed the instructions under help. I even removed it and re-paired with the phone.
The other 2 speakers work fine. All 3 of them were all brought up to the latest firmware for months now. They've been working all fine with this app until a few days ago.
They only thing that changed is the app (based on the version history).
Please fix it. I can't use one of my speakers at all and it's been working fine. I spent quite a bit of money on all 3 and I love playing all of them at the same time.
Not turning on from app 1/5
Not turning on from app. Please how do i downgrade to the old version
App doesn’t work! 1/5
The app I originally downloaded, for my Boom2, let me turn on the speaker but didn’t recognize that it had successfully turned on, so I couldn’t adjust the controls for bass/treble via the app. So I deleted it and downloaded it again, and now although my phone’s Bluetooth says the speaker is connected, and it works just fine, the app doesn’t recognize that the speaker is even connected, so I can’t even turn it on with the app! Worse than before!
Not happy 2/5
Everything was working great, in fact probably better than it ever was — until the last update. Now I can’t connect to any of my speakers( I have 3). Why can’t you leave well enough alone or at least make sure update is going to work before you put it out. Please fix!!
Changes to be made 2/5
1. Add an option to include Spotify. As you guys already know the majority of people use Spotify instead of Apple Music. That button in the middle does nothing for me if the only choice I have is to select Apple Music. You should also consider other music platforms as well.
2. Add an option to change the volume of the speaker’s NOTIFICATIONS. The start up sound/pairing sound/shut down sound are EXTREMELY LOUD. What if users don’t want to disturb anyone when turning on/off the speaker? There’s no way to adjust those volumes. Also add the option for users to turn off those notification sounds. It gets very very annoying and inconvenient for people.
Now my mega boom doesn’t connect? 1/5
Last update 2 days ago - now fails to CONNECT my Megaboom & iPhone 6s+
Put back the previous version!!!!!
New Megaboom app of as good as old one 3/5
By tidable 2
The new combined app is a bit more complied that old one. But biggest disappointment in new one is the automatic setting to to remote power on. This setting is used so that you can turn on speaker from app. The problem is that setting drains concertante power unit while on. So it you leave your speakers off for long periods of time. You may have r to recharge to use. The old app allowed you to turn this feature on and off so if you used speaker frequently you could leave remote power on so you could power speaker on/off with app. Or if you were going to leave speaker for a few weeks you could turn remote power off thereby conserving considerable battery usage while not in use. Please return this setting to app.
App not working 1/5
App will turn on speaker but not connect. When it does connect it will disconnect. I own 4 speakers and when connect another speaker it drops the connection. You guys need to update the app more often.
BIG NOTICEABLE DELAY 1/5
I have a pair of ue boom 2 speakers, I bought two to be able to use the party up mode that can use the two speakers as separate stereo speakers
the problem is when I play any video or movie or even a youtube video I get a very noticeable delay that makes the speakers pretty much unusable in party up mode
the delay is only present in party mode not in single speaker mode
I use the latest app version 126.96.36.199 as well as the latest firmware on the speakers 2.2.1
I also tried the speakers on an android device (Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge) but the problem is still there
Boom 2 / MegaBoom 4/5
As of a month or two back... the App is now broken for me... doesn’t work with either Boom2 or MegaBoom!
Bluetooth connectivity has been worse as of the last two firmware updates inspite of release notes saying fixes for disconnects.
Looks like planned obsolescence of an amazing pair of speakers. 🙁
Factory reset - to the rescue!!!
hold vol - and power button for 7 sec when speaker is turned on
After the reset and Bluetooth pairing, and its working with the new app!
I’ll experiment with the Bluetooth connectivity the next few trips and updates this review.
Love It! 5/5
By your local looser
Please add Spotify as a music service on the app.
App worked for a week, then stopped 1/5
The speakers work on other devices but not on my phone. Deleted both the app and the devices, but even though the speakers show up on the phone as connected, they never reappear in the app.
Try something different 1/5
Bought 2 MegaBoom 3’s and they break up all the time. Even if it’s just one speaker it still breaks up when I’m 5 feet away. I used to have a boom and boom 2. Boom 2’s I used to pair up and put on opposite sides of the house with no issues at all. Very disappointed and thinking about returning them.
What is UE doing? 1/5
By Matthew Raymond
This app use to work relatively well for a few years. But over the last few weeks, I cannot get this app to recognize any of my Megabooms. I’ve reinstalled the app, repaired my speakers...everything. The app fails to recognize my UE speakers. What are they doing over there?
Blast app 1/5
I am not able to connect a boom 3 and a Blast. I’ve tryed for the past hour to do the updates on the blast. But it simply says error after error.
Speaker is awesome, app is terrible. 1/5
This app stopped working for me several weeks ago. The speaker works fine but I can no longer access the equalizer functions through the app. Not the end of the world but it was really nice to be able to adjust the sound.
Additionally there are spelling errors in the app. For a company this big and a speaker this expensive I would expect spell check to be a given.
Updated, you need to update, i did, you need to update, I did 1/5
Updated, you need to update, i did, you need to update, I did
Even after doing all the firmware updates it still won’t work.
Since I never use the app, not sure why I even care
