Reading of similar problems online it seems gear4 are no longer supporting this app and there's no way of contacting them except by their online email service where it is seen that they are not responding to anyone. Gear4 are from or at least trading out of Hong Kong, says it all really!
The actual hardware, street party 2 still will connect to my ipad2 via Bluetooth and plays music through this medium fine but the non app control they are using as their selling point renders this unit a glorified Bluetooth speaker docking station, non of the extras they promise via the app are usable.
The sound is what you'd expect of a wireless speaker in this price range but I'm sure you can get better, cheaper. Another annoying thing about this product is when you have an ipad docked it covers half of the digital time display, whoever designed this must have only tested it on an iPhone or iPod though it is promoted for iPad as well.
I have never returned an item to Amazon but for the sheer audacity to keep promoting and selling this product as though the app works I am breaking tradition and returning it immediately.Read more ›
I ordered the unit as i liked the idea of having both a wireless connection and docking connection for my music library with the addition of an alarm clock so i could use it next to my bed. The red led was also an attraction as most of these types of units seem to light up the whole room and prevent me from sleeping. The sound is excellent via iPod connected, is ok via Bluetooth but volume is very low via Bluetooth?
BUT as i needed this as an alarm clock this is where is is flawed. if you have an iPod docked on the unit and set the alarm to make use of the in built buzzer the alarm will not work. Remove the iPod and the buzzer on the alarm will function, however you can not adjust the volume of the buzzer even though the manual says you can. Gear4 state that the units most be faulty but two have two units with the same faults leads me to believe this is an inherent fault that they are not owning up to.
if you want this unit for just playing music then i would give it top marks but if you need the alarm function as well then look else where.
7/1/2013 update..... after being told by gear4 that my units must be faulty and returned them both i have received a phone call and been advised that the above issues are known by their development team and are not faults. Even though the unit operates differently from what the manual states!!!!.....a flaw I'm sure even their customer services described it as a fault. Gear4 you need to issue a firmware update to address these flaws. Thus i have had to remove another star for selling a product that you actually know is flawed and doing nothing about it, shame on you.
