Remote on option removed 3/5
Why remove a feature that allowed users to choose between battery drain and ease of use?
Needs work 2/5
With this new version the ability to enable/disable remote on function has been removed and seems to be stuck permanently on for all 4 of my speakers.
Stopped working 3/5
I really liked it until it stopped finding my speaker. No matter what I do it can’t connect. Help
Own 2 UE Boom & 1 UE Megaboom 5/5
Bought both our daughters a UE Boom 3 years ago. Used theirs on fishing trips & at the lake so my husband & bought us a Megaboom. Sometimes outdoors isn’t loud enough with wind but love the portability & never had problems!!
This works so much better for voiceover users. 4/5
Finally after a year or two of waiting, this app works almost perfectly with voiceover again. I love the fact that I can turn on and off my speakers from my iPhone. I also like the fact that I can rename my speakers without having to ask a sighted person for help. Thank you for the completely redesigned and mostly voiceover friendly update. I am editing this update a little bit. I now have both a BOOM and a Boom 2 speaker. I followed instructions for the double up and party up features, but it doesn’t work. The firmware on both speakers is up-to-date. Also, the party up feature is completely inaccessible to voiceover users. The way that you have it set up for a user to drag the speaker into some kind of drawer does not work because voiceover does not announce that there is a drawer at all.
How do I use this? 1/5
By Dan Tomassi
I’ve had my UE for 5 years and now the App won’t work. It keeps telling me to update my subscription preferences and won’t give me access to changing preferences on speaker settings.
Does not work 1/5
The app can’t find my speaker.
Worked fine for awhile.
What’s up with that ?!!!
Not compatible with the UE Wonderboom 1/5
I want to disable these obnoxiously loud startup/shutdown noises (as well as all playback sounds) like I did with my UE boom 2 but it’s impossible. I’d say this app is pretty useless if it can’t connect to my speaker. Not to mention how this company puts out 3 apps and non of them work.
The alarm is back. 5/5
Back to 5 stars
Works fine. No complaints. 5/5
Like I said :)
Leave well enough alone 2/5
I use this app from time-to-time and it seems as if I’m constantly having to reload or relearn the app thanks to changes made to it.
Leave well enough alone will you?
Will not “Party Up” 1/5
I have a Three Megaboom speakers and one Megaboom 3 and it will not connect all four and play together. Yes, I’ve updated all the speakers and the app, it’s just crap. These speakers are to expensive to work this poorly.
Spend your money elsewhere.
Requires update 4/5
I got my UE Boom Christmas 2016 and love it so much I use it for movies and music. About 2 days ago it stopped working. I got a message to update this to the latest version and that I will be emailed the instruction which I have not received to date. Can you help? Thanks.
Why go out of the way to eliminate Alexa compatibility?
Won't work with the Wonderboom!?! 1/5
Ultimate Ears has no app that works with Wonderboom. Wish we had known this before buying. FYI- The Mega Boom has a great app and the sound quality is much better. Got the Wonderboom for outdoor use around the pool. Disappointed.
Terrible decisions 1/5
I bought this speaker years ago, but for whatever reason, the mini was removed and is no longer supported and can no longer be used. Don’t buy UE. They’ll just scrap the support in a year or so
Cannot seem to get Alexa to work with the MegaBoom 3. Was a big selling point to me in the store but seems like it will not connect. The speaker is awesome besides that no complaints.
needs work 2/5
app won’t even recognize my brand new boom 2, despite the fact that my ipad is quite clearly connected and playing music through it. very frustrating. love the speaker, loathe the app.
Don't download 1/5
It wants to make me upgrade and subscribe to stuff I don't want to buy it won't give me a choice.
What about Spotify? 4/5
It is a really great app and I love that I can turn it on and off without getting up because i can be very lazy sometimes. But, I do have an Iphone but I use spotify so I can’t use all the features like the playlist and the alarm.
No WonderBoom support 1/5
No Deezer support on iOS 3/5
I love my Boom 3 and the app is okay, but I am really confused why there is no support for Deezer playlists on iOS app
Not able to connect... 1/5
My boom 2 connects to my iPhone just fine, but this app is not working. I used to be able to control everything on it, now it doesn’t let me past the “connect” screen.
Garbage app 1/5
I just want to use my speakers without updating them because who the heck needs to update a speaker. The app loses all functionality when it sends you into an un-skip-able pop up prompting you to subscribe to their newsletter. I understand they want people to update their things but I literally can’t because I don’t have a computer. So all I’m left with is one UE and one that can’t do anything. Remove the pop up that blocks everything and destroys all function of the app and just let us use the un updated speakers and stop shoving the update down people’s throats.
UE Boom and Siri Support 1/5
By JD Bonilla
How do you activate Siri through the speaker? I can’t seem to find this feature anywhere. If it’s gone please bring it back
Turn on/off seems broken in IOS 12.1.1 2/5
Updated 2 iPhones to IOS 12.1.1. On both I could no longer turn on and off the speaker using the app.
Never, ever, ever, ever works the first (or second) time 1/5
Based on the news from Virgin Galactic this week, you now have a better chance of getting to the moon than getting this app to work on the first try.
Yes, it works eventually, but the annoyance of doing it two, three or four times and then having to restart your music (no, turning the music off first doesn’t help) is infuriating.
I guess they really can put a person in space, but they can’t make a speaker app that actually works. Oh well.
Unable to connect all 4 speakers 1/5
It’s extremely difficult to connect all 4 speakers I have.
The update ruined my speakers 1/5
The whole reason I got 3 of these speakers is so they can all connect !! How hard is it I mean it was working fine, then I notice a update and now they won’t all sync together. The other 2 apps are garbage as well.
By doc smith 64
Since update, volume doesn’t work on front screen. It does power off from app so I know it is that function. Please fix. It will be great on front screen.
Latest update to MegaBoom 3 4/5
By Perked 101
Latest UE update to the MegaBoom 3 makes video audio out of sync. Keep factory settings
Thank you for the fix 5/5
Way better after the latest update
Better, but not great 3/5
It’s better now that the alarm feature is back but I pick specific songs to use with the alarm and it just seems to play whatever it wants. I’m glad that I can turn the speaker on right from my phone again though. The app is not very user friendly at all. The speaker is phenomenal. The app is meh.
What would make this app go from Good to awesome, would be if you could access other media like Pandora or Spotify from the app..
UE Boom 2 4/5
Excellent speaker. The alarm feature is neat but would be improved with the ability to set it to shuffle a playlist, and to not activate on certain days (or to activate at a different time on those days).
WARNING DO NOT UPGRADE YOU WILL LOSE FEATURES 1/5
I use my boom daily as an alarm, and rarely for anything else these days. I am not likely to buy another boom in any size if the quality control issues and lack of key features continues.
NOTE DEC 11: I am watching reviews of the latest update that restores the alarm feature and I will update this review when I decide to take the plunge thanks to UE for listening to users
Alarm is back!!! 5/5
Finally they added the alarm feature back. Now i feel this speaker is complete. Thank ue
Much Improved!! 5/5
THANK YOU FOR LISTENING!!
I was upset when they removed the old app because of the features they removed.
They finally updated it to include the alarm!!
Can’t manage multiple speakers except in party up mode 4/5
By A fun way to learn
Within a couple weeks of my writing the review below I received an notice that my issue had been resolved with the latest update. And so it has! LOVE that kind of responsiveness.
The app now works great for me.
(Note: after updating the app reboot your device.)
Only the last speaker I used appears on the list to turn on a speaker. This makes it impossible to turn on different speakers around my house with the app. Of course, I can turn on all the speakers with the party up, but I don’t want to do that except on rare occasions.
Really painful since my kitchen speaker is in a s tough to reach place.
7.2.0 is better than the previous 4/5
I like that Apple Music was added to 7.2.0, the previous only had Deezer which I don’t personally use, also volume added to the main screen is a plus, I suggest more EQ presets, Rock, Hip Hop, Instrumental etc.... the EQ is kinda of tricky compared to Stereo EQ’s so I find myself never Satisfied, an EQ Off and On switch would be nice
Still needs some work 2/5
I bought this speaker for the ability to play a playlist as an alarm clock... ever since apple thought it was a good idea to include it on iPods but not iOS. And guess what? Logitech decided to also remove. I think companies should not advertise features and then remove them... period!
Update... alarm is back, but there’s no way to shuffle the playlist or songs to my knowledge, so you’re still waking up with the same song EVERYDAY... Also would be nice if I could select certain days of the week to not include days like Saturday or Sunday.
Muy buena actualización 👍👌😎
This App is Great why so many bad complaints? 5/5
This app frankly is really good never have any technical issues and now with the alarm coming back on the app I’m very excited!!
There is a latency delay issue pairing stereo speakers 2/5
When you pair stereo speakers and try to watch a video there is a noticeable delay.
Where’s my alarm? 1/5
I miss the alarm. Bring it back.
Absolutely Horrible software DO NOT BUY! 1/5
The speakers are marginally acceptable, but nothing close to the Bose speaker if same size. The software to connect multiple speaker is absolute garbage. I am embarrassed I wasted the time and money. Just buy Bose
Dude this app blows. I have three ur boom 2’s and can’t sync them to save my life. I’ve tried everything. YouTube, etc etc etc. BLOWS donkey balls
Where is the alarm?? 2/5
The new update makes the interface of the app significantly better! But they took out the alarm feature of the speakers which was by far my favorite benefit of the app. With the alarm the app is 5 stars, I used to use it every day to wake up. Please bring back the alarm!
150 speakers? You can't even pair two of them lol
