Will this app be updated so it can be used with ISO 11 software? I get a message saying need to update before ISO 11 is released by Apple Inc
App is junk just crashes
by Guierzilla on 2019/07/30 15:12
App works until you connect it to a dock then it crashes. Changed the clock type stayed on then I got a message that said. “App does not support this accessory”

by Phoenix12121 on 2019/05/29 16:57
So the App works great but I gave it three stars because when my phone synced with the clock it completely set the clock to the wrong time
Get an update?!
by jthanso on 2018/04/26 01:53
Can we PLEASE get an update so that iPhone 6 and newer can work on the ICF-CS15iPN?! Pretty please. All I use this thing now for now is to charge my phone at night.
Works with iPhone X
by filmguy5 on 2018/03/13 20:12
I used this with my iPhone 4 on a Sony radio. Recently purchased the lightning adapter (only works with official oem Apple adapter) and it works perfectly with my iPhone X. My only complaint is I’d like to program each day of the week for waking up to a different song each morning and it only lets me select weekly. Needs an update as I don’t want to wake up to the same song every morning.
Confused
by Girthy Gonorrhea on 2018/01/24 21:26
Honestly, I don’t see how this app is useful with the speaker. Also you can only select songs from Apple Music which nobody uses.
Not much to it
by TIkiRoomFritz on 2018/01/16 01:37
Basically, the purpose of this app is to sync the time to your Sony iPhone/iPad/iPod sound dock. It does what it needs to do, and nothing more. I grew concerned that they wouldn't update the app to work with iOS 10, as it had gone for 4 years without any updates. Fortunately, Sony FINALLY updated the app.
iPhone X Support needed
by Katja Miller on 2017/12/28 11:12
Please can you make this app work on iPhone x’s new screen size? Thank you.
@Dad2theBone
by NinGamer17 on 2017/12/26 14:37
I actually just got my adapter and to say the least I have no issues if others are still having issues it might be the fact you need a adapter can use video and not just audio quality.
I was shocked this app was even updated for iOS 11.
by DeAndre R. on 2017/12/05 18:20
iPhone X support would be nice.
It works again!
by sea_matt on 2017/10/16 21:02
I have a RDP-XA700IPN and an iPhone 8 so I am very very happy to see this app get updated and working again. Thank You!

Support update needed
by CJAM613 on 2017/09/26 00:27
I have had this app to go with my dock for several years and it has worked wonderfully it to now!! Please get iOS 11 support!! This app is my primary alarm and at home program. Please hurry!!
Update needed stat!

Please update!
Won't work with iOS 11
by iHateMSFT on 2017/08/22 23:17
It's as good as dead. Too bad Sony doesn't want to update it. This will severely limit functionality of my alarm clock.
No Longer Works
by Crooktide on 2017/08/10 12:22
I had this alarm clock for not even a year before the app stopped working. They stopped updating it and now my phone doesn't charge or play music when plugged into the port. I had to delete the app because it was in fact slowing my phone down.
Orphaned App
by GoodMusicPlease? on 2017/07/07 23:56
It's a shame that a company like Sony, once a leader in Consumer Electronics has let this app go into oblivion. My iPhone 6+ will not play upon insetting into the adapter then insetting into the deck. After pressing on/off, audio in, mode, iPod&iPhone, OFF in some random order, then stopping and restarting my phone maybe I'll get some music. If the app were updated to iOS 10.3 I doubt I'd be having this issue. It's shame seeing apps left by the wayside, no longer supported due to other profitable projects within a company. And no I will not be buying a 4K Sony DSLR, nor will I buy a Sony OLED TV. There are better products for less money available. The savvy Consumer has spoken with his checkbook once again!
UPDATE IT!
by Fcotjpr on 2017/05/10 10:26
UPDATE!!
Has not been updated in years
by Kithrenn on 2017/03/02 16:46
I own the speakers and they still work and I use it still everyday but it's not updated for iOS 10. Hopefully they can update the app sometime.
App Update needed!!
by Ntowneagles99 on 2017/02/14 13:33
The dream machine worked great.. but the past week for some odd reason my alarm isn't working right, the machine itself is saying my alarm is going off.. but no sound!! But can play my music on the thing and it's fine! It keeps telling me it needs an update on the app. Maybe that's what is wrong!? Help!!
Sony has long abandoned this app
by Bt3of4 on 2016/12/22 00:21
Update past ios8 breaks it partly, past ios9 breaks it almost completely. Last app update was 3/2013

I used this product religiously everyday until I downloaded iOS 10. Now it doesn't work- please fix! I loved this product!!
Does not work with IOS 10.
by Michael Trull on 2016/09/24 02:55
While its user interface is disappointing, I've enjoyed programming my Sony alarm clock using the app rather than the alarm clock's buttons. But it does not work since upgrading to IOS 10. Hopefully they will fix the app soon.
Awesome
by Golden419 on 2016/09/24 00:51
Works perfectly just purchased the device and downloaded app with no problems
Your APP is broken

I upgraded to the iPhone 6s Plus and now this app doesn't work. Can you update this horrible app please?
Please Fix this
by Aggglhddtjb on 2016/02/11 14:30
I loved playing music on my docking station!! I was disappointed when my iPhone 6 said that this device was no longer supported after I updated to iOS 9. I have waited and waited to get an update to allow me to use this, I have cleaned all connectors. My docking station is now just a super big and expensive phone charger. Please please fix this.
Not compatible with iPhone 6????
by Camidei on 2015/12/30 05:26
Too bad. Looks like I will be looking at iHome products instead of Sony products.

IOS 9 - Dream (Nightmare) Machine and iPhone 4S
by Frustrated Consumer33 on 2015/11/18 21:36
Since updating to IOS 9 (now 9.1 as I write) the wonderful features of this app (auto Time sync, set alarms, tune stations etc) are no longer working. So the journey began, contacted Sony Technical Support - their suggestions: try cleaning terminals, try resetting both phone and dock, still no luck - "This accessory is not supported on your iPhone”. Sony Tech Support final advice - call Apple, they made the change on their side. So, as futile as you would assume it was going to be, I contact Apple Support. Again, similar rhetoric, we don’t support 3rd Party Applications or devices - best bet is to contact Sony and request an app update. So, contacted Sony support again, spoke to an agent who explains they have no way to contact Sony Engineering, best advice, put something on the Customer forums and hope the community can advise a fix. I now have a very expensive cook radio next to my bed that is unable to sync, play music or program from my phone - hence the 1 star. If there was a lower rating I would give it - very poor support from, what I thought, a reputable company with quality products!
Not compatible with iphone6
by 1245ww on 2015/11/17 07:27
A mediocre app, but the sound quality on the dock/stereo was good, and now that I've upgraded my phone, the dock no longer works. Thanks for nothing.
Needs update
by Mightygoose on 2015/11/03 13:25
Does not work with iphone6 and 30 pin to lightning adapter.
Was simple & great! Now, not so much...
by Arpus94 on 2015/10/08 14:57
This app has worked well through all the updates and iPhones since getting my Sony clock radio when I had a iPhone 4. I am now having problems with iOS9. When I dock the alarm settings don't display anymore so I have to adjust the alarm on the radio which takes me back to an interface developed in the 70's. Seems like Sony could keep a current app that would work with all their products. Can't imagine it would take much resources to do. As FYI; I've deleted and reinstalled several times - once in a while it would work for a couple days.
iOS update issues
by mscross91 on 2015/09/29 14:39
Since the latest iOS updates came out, the app's performance has been spotty in a way it never was before the updates. The app will DISPLAY as if it's sounding the alarm, but the docking station wont play any sound.
Rarely chooses to charge my iPhone 5
by CR Wills on 2015/08/26 04:55
I suppose this is app/product criticism... I say "chooses" because it is seemingly random when my iPhone will or will not charge when docked. At first, I thought it was because the app hates certain apps on the iPhone, so I force quit them: no help. Then I thought maybe it was upset my other iOS products were making it cranky, so I force quit apps on my iPad, shut down Spotify on the laptop, turned off Netflix on the Xbox, still: no help. Yesterday it charged for half the night, then it choose to stop, so I woke up to a half-charged phone. This is simply an egregious oversight by a major corporation charging $60 for a product we expect to work. Do NOT use a device that requires this software. CAPITALISM ONLY WORKS IF YOU ONLY BUY WHAT ACTUALLY WORKS. EFF YOU, SONY.
Great app to go with Sony Home center
by Smashnieto on 2015/07/30 23:04
App always worked great and I never had to worry about missing an alarm. Thank you!
Are there any updates?
by Rick VST on 2015/07/26 04:53
I find it hard to understand how a company like Sony can drop the ball like they did on this app. Why is it that I have to go to Music to restart a song after it has stopped playing after the sleep timer has ended?
No alarm functionality
by Mmmmnnnnjjjjj on 2015/07/22 07:03
This app was working perfectly fine for me, but then I updated to iOS 8.4 and now the alarms are missing. I am annoyed as this app is required to make my Sony speaker stand work. Limping along with the sleep timer tonight.
Won't sync after iOS 8.4 update
by Unclelizard on 2015/07/12 06:18
I have an iPhone 6+ with an older 30 pin alarm. I used the Apple 30 pin to FireWire adapter and it worked fine. Then I upgraded to iOS 8.4 and it no longer synced. After reinstalling it, it works. I docked it before using the app 1st time.
It woke me up for awhile....
by Flipicaneze on 2015/05/21 03:47
The alarm clock function stopped working. If acts like it's there but now won't turn on the docking station. I have been late because of this as I depended on it for an alarm. Sony fix this problem. I have it installed on two iPhones and am iPad.
They have not updated this software for IOS 8
by JimL521 on 2015/04/24 14:54
If you purchased a Sony IPhone/IPad docking product and they require you to use this d-sappli app to make it work correctly (for sounding alarms, etc.), return the product because this software doesn’t work with IOS 8. It effectively bricks the Sony docking station for any IOS 8 device alarm clock functionality. Bluetooth and Playing music while docked still works, but you will not be able to use any alarm clock. Repeated emails to Sony have been ineffective. Better to buy the iHome products - at least they work.
App broken since IOS 8
by GJB-ATown on 2015/04/15 17:17
Sony- please pay attention to your customers! Applications had been broken since iOS 8.1 issues continue with 8.2. App broken , Sony ignores issue and offer no way to get assistance!
wish 24-hour clock mode worked..
by Zmott on 2015/02/01 05:19
Currently running iOS 7 with my 5s, at first I changed the time to 24 hour clock mode but all of a sudden the docking unit switched back to regular 12 hour clock.. I'm unable to now change it.. it's like tinge dock an phone are no longer communicating.. this app is a good idea just needs a update an a few bug repairs..
Update
by Epic fun 88 on 2015/01/16 06:30
When I plug my phone in, it tells me that I can't use my ihome to charge my phone. There should be an update.
New iOS
by Matthew Harrington on 2014/12/31 20:09
This app worked well on my old 4th gen iPod touch, but ever since I updated to the 5th gen and downloaded the new iOS it doesn't even open the app. Needs new update for compatibility rework...
Does what it’s supposed to do
by freewayjim on 2014/12/28 01:24
I don’t understand the low ratings and complaints, this is just a complimentary app that Sony made for the iPhone and the ICF-CS15iPN to communicate with each other, (works great on my iPhone 6) no it doesn’t have a ton of bells and whistles, what do you want it to do? play movies and balance your checkbook? It’s fine for what it does. I do wish the app were easier to find and had a name that made a little more sense but that’s splitting hairs.
Works to setup clock radio, not much else.
by fallingrock on 2014/12/26 15:53
Works fine to configure my clock radio, and that's all I use it for. Seriously needs updating for new phones and ui standards.
Awesome
by Ufkcjcj j on 2014/12/17 02:49
This app is the best app that can be connected to any other device!!!
App is good in theory
by Nanctur on 2014/12/11 17:20
This is my third comment! Please keep up with Apple bug fixes as I now can't charge my phone on this. I would love the features to work like they did out of the box. PLEASE!!
Not compatible with 8
by Hana Beginner on 2014/12/11 16:02
Had problems.. Deleted and reloaded app. Now runs with iOS 8.. :) 😉
Ugh
by GaelicSoxFan on 2014/12/04 10:30
I've tried this app in conjunction with my phone and the docking station. I'm trying very hard to put into words my feelings on this app that will effectively convey my feelings and will get this review past Apple's censors. Here it is: run away screaming from this app. It serves no purpose. If you have it running while docked, it limits the volume on the dock. Also, it negates the equalizer in iOS so everything sounds like it's coming out of a tin can.
I'm your customer service
by Jumpin_J on 2014/11/10 15:23
I wrote a previous review that when I upgraded to the iPhone 6 and IO8, the app would crash when opened. Of course there's nothing by Sony offering anything in the way of customer support so I was ready to just forget it. Then I though just for the hell of it to remove it from my device and then reinstall it. Since doing that, it's been working fine. The app was successful in syncing the phone to the clock radio, and with the iPhone bigger screen, the clock display looks great. The alarm works as advertised too. It's low on frills but it does what it says it's supposed to do. People should read the specifications carefully though. I can't be sure that putting an adapter to connect the clock radio to a non-lightning iPhone will work.
Boo
by SKIM OV on 2014/10/31 02:26
Doesn't work with iOS 8. Please fix this immediately
Shame on you Sony
by Stefan Totev on 2014/10/23 11:17
This app doesn't even deserve the time to write review for it. Total abandonment from Sony. No updates, no customer support, nothing. When you buy a new dab fm dock you expect it to work with the app provided. I can't change the names of the stations. The app is extremely buggy and ugly. Sony sent me email to leave review about the product. I left one and few days later they told me the review won't be published, because it describes customer service. And they don't want this…
Worked with iPhone 5, but not with 6.
by TCamp72a on 2014/10/06 16:13
Can no longer update the alarm times. Dock the phone, touch an alarm and the app shuts down.
Update

Not working this app needs a update for iOS 8
Was ok until iOS 8
by Ovrkil64 on 2014/09/24 11:27
iOS 8 killed this app. I recommend you stay away from it and buy a alarm clock from a company on top of there upgrades
Worked great...before iOS 8 update...
by RazorX67 on 2014/09/22 10:54
...but now I get the "Accessory may not be supported" error and the app crashes when you try to open an alarm for editing. The app hasn't been updated since March of 2013.
Doesn't work
by AZMovieMom on 2014/09/21 09:45
App does not properly communicate with the clock using iPhone 5s with iOS 8
iOS 8 renders app useless. This accessory may not be supported
by FreeAppGuru on 2014/09/20 01:59
All text fields are stuck empty with frozen screens. This is the error I get when docking. This accessory may not be supported. Also the iPhone playback will only play the last song listened to at the previous volume. So there is no reliability at all. Alarms are supposed to be reliable. What's the point in using an app that doesn't work? just like Sony to sell a well marketed alarm clock with no functionality support. I should have known better. Sony = unreliable.
Needs UPDATE
by Techdude Z on 2014/08/23 17:23
It NEEDS UPDATED It's PRETTY MUCH TOO LATE to make it iOS 7 compatible so you MIGHT want to make it iOS 8 compatible Seriously the design of iOS has MAJORLY CHANGED in iOS 7 so the app should be redesigned for iOS 7-8 compatibility Like I said it's TOO LATE to make it compatible for iOS 7 cause the debut of iOS 8 will be SOON
Unable to charge my Apple 5 phone
by Slot nj on 2014/08/04 04:24
I have a apple 5 iPhone w/ the lightening connection. My phone does not charge when is docked on my sony clock radio ICF-CS151iPN) . My alarm works, but when I wake in the morning my phone has not charged. My phone will charge on other docking stations. Will someone at sony please update is app! It has been over a year since the last update. I will buy a Sony product like this again.
Lightning connector version works with iPhone 5
by Dad2theBone on 2014/07/30 00:57
I'm sorry that others have had trouble with the 30-pin version of the ICF-CS15iPN. I do not doubt their experiences trying to work through the 30-pin-to-Lightning adapter. I know it has some limitations and have experienced them myself in other situations. My experience with the D-Sappli app has been positive. When I placed my iPhone 5 on the dock, it displayed a message that I needed the D-Sappli app and offered to take me to the iTunes Store. I consented, and was, understandably, distressed to see the low ratings on the app. I downloaded it anyway and was pleasantly surprised. It asked if I wanted to sync the dock's time with my iPhone's and after I agreed, it did so flawlessly. Then I set the dock's 2 alarms using the app and tapped "send"—and they both updated on the dock. So far everything seems to work as intended. Perhaps the adapter is the problem rather than the app.
This Accessory May Not Be Supported
by 3746 on 2014/07/29 03:30
Used to work fine. Now this error message keeps lighting up all night. I have only had this since Christmas so I am a little ticked that updates are not fixing this. It recharges my phone and serves as a separate clock but that is about it. Please fix!
Won't open
by elifednah on 2014/07/22 15:26
Application won't open. I can't use. Needed update as soon as possible
Need lots of improvements
by Maloud on 2014/07/14 14:08
Syncing the clock isn't accurate, it's either 5 minutes more or an hour before. And there's not much to do an application for, this application is a disappointment!!
App no longer operates
by Karen Krull on 2014/07/14 05:41
I bought this docking system for my iPhone 3s but now that I have an iPhone 5c even if I try using an official 30 pin to lightning adapter, the D-Sappli app does not allow me to set the alarm, change the time setting, or set any music or radio stations. All i can do now is charge my phone. This app makes my Sony dock useless. I am disappointed because I invested a lot of money in this system but have not been able to keep it operational since the March 2014 update. At that time even with the 3s, the alarm was not reliable, I cannot use the remote, and now the 5c won't change to the alarm and radio station setting screen. It only displays the time on the phone, not allowing me to sinc to my dock.
Annoyed
by Wyojhwk on 2014/07/03 17:58
Not happy I had to buy a new alarm clock since the pin system came out and now it won't even charge my phone. Says the device is not compatible... What a joke!!!
Okay
by _ngymnast_ on 2014/06/29 12:15
When I first got this app, it worked fine. I was able to get up in the morning for school or for church. Now, I set my alarm, and check everything to make sure everything is how it is supposed to be, and my alarm isn't going off. It's been doing this for a few weeks and I'm getting annoyed. How can I make it go back to normal?
Horrible app
by Ukgal on 2014/06/10 02:59
I am constantly late getting up due to this app not working on a consistent basis. Sony ought to be ashamed for putting out a product that used an app that clearly has major issues! If I had known this was not going to have the bugs worked out by now, NEVER would have bought the docking station.
MANY Improvements to be Made!
by Slayer of Heroes on 2014/05/26 16:45
It's just not that much of a help for anything! I can't even switch playlists on my i-5! :/
Worked until today
by Caseyfoofoo on 2014/05/24 15:08
This worked fine for me until today. Now it crashes instead of loading. Luckily the roofers were noisy enough to wake me. An alarm should always work. This must be repaired.
Pretty Good
by Mac user /// on 2014/05/12 20:37
This app has some very nice clock modes that make the iPhone look and work great when docked (even when not on a Sony device.) It has some very good functionality with Sony devices too, being able to play music, display & set alarms, adjust radio stations, and more.
Please provide a fix after iOS upgrades
by Fuzzyschick on 2014/05/09 14:08
I used to love my Sony dock and used it on a daily basis, but after iOS upgrades I can no longer play music with it. It has been months and nothing has been done. Please fix these issues!!!!
Quit working!
by Siouxfannd on 2014/04/18 10:01
Since the most recent iOS update, this app no longer works with my clock, which is the only reason I have it. When are you going to fix it?
It needs an update
by Anónimo354 on 2014/04/04 01:00
Sony has to do the app for iOS 7 because it falls a lot and it's just Pretty lag there
Not Supported

I hope the product team that developed this app is unemployed. An app that has a clock and an alarm, really Sony?!
Fine.

The app works fine for me. I honestly think it's kinda pointless though. Anything you can do in the app I could do on my dock.
App does not work!!!
by Rob.i.monroy on 2013/12/02 10:32
Ugh please fix sony
Used to work
by Ojr12345678 on 2013/11/23 17:43
I updated it and then my alarm started to not work!!! Fix it!!!
Music
by ABTP. on 2013/11/08 13:36
It works well up until I'm laying in bed and I switch from radio to music and it shuts my iPod off and puts it to sleep. I hate having to crawl out of bed and re-swipe the lock to turn the app back on. I would like that to be fixed
D-Sappli
by DBranson2 on 2013/11/06 06:49
The app worked well but the ability to set an alarm to play music stopped after iOS 7 was installed. An update should be released to fix this bug.
One problem
by Anthony tm on 2013/11/01 04:02
Nice unit but when I get txt messages it only vibrates and doesn't ring unlike when I get phone calls please fix with an update
Buggy alarm setting
by Ajippolito on 2013/10/28 11:11
If you set the alarm from the ap, and set it it iPod, the buzzer goes off. If you set it with the dock, it works. I am partly deaf and need a loud alarm. The buzzer doesn't do it for me. Would like to have settings do what they say they do.
iOS 7
by sammonty517 on 2013/09/29 03:02
App stopped working after the update. How long is it going to take Sony to fix this? Very annoying...I want to listen to my music!
Need to update for iOS 7!!
by Great TVFan on 2013/09/26 22:22
This is a great, functional app for those of us who have a Sony clock radio with a docking station. But since updating to iOS 7 on my iPhone 4, I now get the message: "This device is incompatible..." I would have rated this app with four stars, but because of this issue I've only given it two. Please update your app ASAP!! Thanks!!
Before & After
by buffcode on 2013/09/23 04:50
Pretty ticked off that I can't play my iPhone 4S through my Sony docking station alarm clock now! That was main reason for getting it! Now it's just a charging base. :(
Update for iPhone 4S
by Dustin Mauzey on 2013/09/19 04:13
I love the app but you need to make it comparable with iPhone 4S please
Problems
by ka9ohv on 2013/09/01 09:44
Two problems with this APP that Sony denies is their problems. 1. When docked it disables my "Do Not Disturb" feature on the I-Phone5. And 2nd it does not allow you to select music you desire in the sleep timer. Sony needs to fix these two bugs. Has anyone else experienced the disabling of the "Do Not Disturb" featured when docked? I would like to know.
Was good...
by luvtheright on 2013/08/27 03:46
Loved the app until the 4.0 upgrade deleted the option for an alarm clock. Five star then, 1 now seeing how it's useless for me. Now just frustrated.
Terrible app
by Levacorpus on 2013/08/07 11:40
Do not even bother to get this app all it does is say what time it is and you could just look at the top of the screen!!!!!!!!
App no longer operates
by Karen Krull on 2014/07/14 05:41
I bought this docking system for my iPhone 3s but now that I have an iPhone 5c even if I try using an official 30 pin to lightning adapter, the D-Sappli app does not allow me to set the alarm, change the time setting, or set any music or radio stations. All i can do now is charge my phone. This app makes my Sony dock useless. I am disappointed because I invested a lot of money in this system but have not been able to keep it operational since the March 2014 update. At that time even with the 3s, the alarm was not reliable, I cannot use the remote, and now the 5c won't change to the alarm and radio station setting screen. It only displays the time on the phone, not allowing me to sinc to my dock.
Lightning connector version works with iPhone 5
by Dad2theBone on 2014/07/30 00:57
I'm sorry that others have had trouble with the 30-pin version of the ICF-CS15iPN. I do not doubt their experiences trying to work through the 30-pin-to-Lightning adapter. I know it has some limitations and have experienced them myself in other situations. My experience with the D-Sappli app has been positive. When I placed my iPhone 5 on the dock, it displayed a message that I needed the D-Sappli app and offered to take me to the iTunes Store. I consented, and was, understandably, distressed to see the low ratings on the app. I downloaded it anyway and was pleasantly surprised. It asked if I wanted to sync the dock's time with my iPhone's and after I agreed, it did so flawlessly. Then I set the dock's 2 alarms using the app and tapped "send"—and they both updated on the dock. So far everything seems to work as intended. Perhaps the adapter is the problem rather than the app.
I'm your customer service
by Jumpin_J on 2014/11/10 15:23
I wrote a previous review that when I upgraded to the iPhone 6 and IO8, the app would crash when opened. Of course there's nothing by Sony offering anything in the way of customer support so I was ready to just forget it. Then I though just for the hell of it to remove it from my device and then reinstall it. Since doing that, it's been working fine. The app was successful in syncing the phone to the clock radio, and with the iPhone bigger screen, the clock display looks great. The alarm works as advertised too. It's low on frills but it does what it says it's supposed to do. People should read the specifications carefully though. I can't be sure that putting an adapter to connect the clock radio to a non-lightning iPhone will work.
Good for Clock/Playback, No Phone or Messaging Support
by Quidnon on 2013/07/28 19:45
I love the clock features, and the playback is very good. However, I'm using it with an iPhone, and I expect to hear my ringtones or message alert when I get one. I've missed multiple calls because the clock overrides EVERYTHING having to do with the iPhone capability. I'm looking for another app that will alert me to incoming calls and messages.
IOS 9 - Dream (Nightmare) Machine and iPhone 4S
by Frustrated Consumer33 on 2015/11/18 21:36
Since updating to IOS 9 (now 9.1 as I write) the wonderful features of this app (auto Time sync, set alarms, tune stations etc) are no longer working. So the journey began, contacted Sony Technical Support - their suggestions: try cleaning terminals, try resetting both phone and dock, still no luck - "This accessory is not supported on your iPhone”. Sony Tech Support final advice - call Apple, they made the change on their side. So, as futile as you would assume it was going to be, I contact Apple Support. Again, similar rhetoric, we don’t support 3rd Party Applications or devices - best bet is to contact Sony and request an app update. So, contacted Sony support again, spoke to an agent who explains they have no way to contact Sony Engineering, best advice, put something on the Customer forums and hope the community can advise a fix. I now have a very expensive cook radio next to my bed that is unable to sync, play music or program from my phone - hence the 1 star. If there was a lower rating I would give it - very poor support from, what I thought, a reputable company with quality products!
iOS update kills the functionality
by Jamesbmc on 2013/07/11 05:00
Please fix the issue with the iOS upgrades and functionality to play music from the 30 pin apple products with the Sony dock. I know the iPhone 5 is out with the new Sony dock but not everyone is able to upgrade and purchase These. These phones are an investment for sure. My iPod touch iPhone 3 gs and wife's iPhone 4 and my new iPhone 4S will not work. Surly Sony can work with apple to find out what changed in the os. If apple causes the problem and will not provide a solution. Let your customers know. Maybe even give trade allotment or adapter kit to allow to play I have to use the mic cable but that is not as food quality sound as the dock seemed to create. Please find a resolution for your customers.
Was simple & great! Now, not so much...
by Arpus94 on 2015/10/08 14:57
This app has worked well through all the updates and iPhones since getting my Sony clock radio when I had a iPhone 4. I am now having problems with iOS9. When I dock the alarm settings don't display anymore so I have to adjust the alarm on the radio which takes me back to an interface developed in the 70's. Seems like Sony could keep a current app that would work with all their products. Can't imagine it would take much resources to do. As FYI; I've deleted and reinstalled several times - once in a while it would work for a couple days.
Orphaned App
by GoodMusicPlease? on 2017/07/07 23:56
It's a shame that a company like Sony, once a leader in Consumer Electronics has let this app go into oblivion. My iPhone 6+ will not play upon insetting into the adapter then insetting into the deck. After pressing on/off, audio in, mode, iPod&iPhone, OFF in some random order, then stopping and restarting my phone maybe I'll get some music. If the app were updated to iOS 10.3 I doubt I'd be having this issue. It's shame seeing apps left by the wayside, no longer supported due to other profitable projects within a company. And no I will not be buying a 4K Sony DSLR, nor will I buy a Sony OLED TV. There are better products for less money available. The savvy Consumer has spoken with his checkbook once again!
Does what it’s supposed to do
by freewayjim on 2014/12/28 01:24
I don’t understand the low ratings and complaints, this is just a complimentary app that Sony made for the iPhone and the ICF-CS15iPN to communicate with each other, (works great on my iPhone 6) no it doesn’t have a ton of bells and whistles, what do you want it to do? play movies and balance your checkbook? It’s fine for what it does. I do wish the app were easier to find and had a name that made a little more sense but that’s splitting hairs.
Aweful App
by mn10731 on 2013/07/09 00:52
Sleep player is useless because it does not have a separate volume from the alarm. So, if you play your music low when going to sleep, the alarm music will be set to the same low volume. Duh! The alarm wake to music will not play the song selected. Instead, it will play whatever song was being played last in the iPod music app. When you plug the phone into the doc, it does not start the app. So if you forget to start the app and push the setting to the clock, the alarm won't go off. Overall, the Sony clock provides a power charging hookup and a clock I can see at night. Nothing else useful from the standard iPhone alarm.
It only works in some ways.
by Nônicknamesleft on 2013/03/26 13:37
I use a Sony dock system and it amplifies my music just fine. The alarm is what I have a problem with. The volume was a pain to fix, because it would play so quietly it would never wake me up. My solution for that was go to the iPod settings and not allow alarm volume to be messed with by the buttons. However, my new problem is with the snooze function. When I press snooze, the app will immediately lock up and not wake me up 5 minutes later.
Works with iPhone X
by filmguy5 on 2018/03/13 20:12
I used this with my iPhone 4 on a Sony radio. Recently purchased the lightning adapter (only works with official oem Apple adapter) and it works perfectly with my iPhone X. My only complaint is I’d like to program each day of the week for waking up to a different song each morning and it only lets me select weekly. Needs an update as I don’t want to wake up to the same song every morning.
They have not updated this software for IOS 8
by JimL521 on 2015/04/24 14:54
If you purchased a Sony IPhone/IPad docking product and they require you to use this d-sappli app to make it work correctly (for sounding alarms, etc.), return the product because this software doesn’t work with IOS 8. It effectively bricks the Sony docking station for any IOS 8 device alarm clock functionality. Bluetooth and Playing music while docked still works, but you will not be able to use any alarm clock. Repeated emails to Sony have been ineffective. Better to buy the iHome products - at least they work.
iOS 8 renders app useless. This accessory may not be supported
by FreeAppGuru on 2014/09/20 01:59
All text fields are stuck empty with frozen screens. This is the error I get when docking. This accessory may not be supported. Also the iPhone playback will only play the last song listened to at the previous volume. So there is no reliability at all. Alarms are supposed to be reliable. What's the point in using an app that doesn't work? just like Sony to sell a well marketed alarm clock with no functionality support. I should have known better. Sony = unreliable.
Shame on you Sony
by Stefan Totev on 2014/10/23 11:17
This app doesn't even deserve the time to write review for it. Total abandonment from Sony. No updates, no customer support, nothing. When you buy a new dab fm dock you expect it to work with the app provided. I can't change the names of the stations. The app is extremely buggy and ugly. Sony sent me email to leave review about the product. I left one and few days later they told me the review won't be published, because it describes customer service. And they don't want this…
It woke me up for awhile....
by Flipicaneze on 2015/05/21 03:47
The alarm clock function stopped working. If acts like it's there but now won't turn on the docking station. I have been late because of this as I depended on it for an alarm. Sony fix this problem. I have it installed on two iPhones and am iPad.
Okay
by _ngymnast_ on 2014/06/29 12:15
When I first got this app, it worked fine. I was able to get up in the morning for school or for church. Now, I set my alarm, and check everything to make sure everything is how it is supposed to be, and my alarm isn't going off. It's been doing this for a few weeks and I'm getting annoyed. How can I make it go back to normal?
Problems
by ka9ohv on 2013/09/01 09:44
Two problems with this APP that Sony denies is their problems. 1. When docked it disables my "Do Not Disturb" feature on the I-Phone5. And 2nd it does not allow you to select music you desire in the sleep timer. Sony needs to fix these two bugs. Has anyone else experienced the disabling of the "Do Not Disturb" featured when docked? I would like to know.
Pretty Good
by Mac user /// on 2014/05/12 20:37
This app has some very nice clock modes that make the iPhone look and work great when docked (even when not on a Sony device.) It has some very good functionality with Sony devices too, being able to play music, display & set alarms, adjust radio stations, and more.
Are there any updates?
by Rick VST on 2015/07/26 04:53
I find it hard to understand how a company like Sony can drop the ball like they did on this app. Why is it that I have to go to Music to restart a song after it has stopped playing after the sleep timer has ended?
Ugh
by GaelicSoxFan on 2014/12/04 10:30
I've tried this app in conjunction with my phone and the docking station. I'm trying very hard to put into words my feelings on this app that will effectively convey my feelings and will get this review past Apple's censors. Here it is: run away screaming from this app. It serves no purpose. If you have it running while docked, it limits the volume on the dock. Also, it negates the equalizer in iOS so everything sounds like it's coming out of a tin can.
Awesome app
by ShadowDragon17 on 2013/03/14 17:25
Very useful app I love using my docking station with it It would be nice if you have the ability to change the color of the clocks on all operating system platforms it would be a nice improvement
Music
by ABTP. on 2013/11/08 13:36
It works well up until I'm laying in bed and I switch from radio to music and it shuts my iPod off and puts it to sleep. I hate having to crawl out of bed and re-swipe the lock to turn the app back on. I would like that to be fixed
Unable to charge my Apple 5 phone
by Slot nj on 2014/08/04 04:24
I have a apple 5 iPhone w/ the lightening connection. My phone does not charge when is docked on my sony clock radio ICF-CS151iPN) . My alarm works, but when I wake in the morning my phone has not charged. My phone will charge on other docking stations. Will someone at sony please update is app! It has been over a year since the last update. I will buy a Sony product like this again.
Not much to it
by TIkiRoomFritz on 2018/01/16 01:37
Basically, the purpose of this app is to sync the time to your Sony iPhone/iPad/iPod sound dock. It does what it needs to do, and nothing more. I grew concerned that they wouldn't update the app to work with iOS 10, as it had gone for 4 years without any updates. Fortunately, Sony FINALLY updated the app.
Support update needed
by CJAM613 on 2017/09/26 00:27
I have had this app to go with my dock for several years and it has worked wonderfully it to now!! Please get iOS 11 support!! This app is my primary alarm and at home program. Please hurry!!
To the users who got it before today's update
by Rockstarr235 on 2013/03/15 00:57
I really hope this update helped all of you fellow Sony alarm clock buyers . This app works great for me even with IOS 6.
Please Fix this
by Aggglhddtjb on 2016/02/11 14:30
I loved playing music on my docking station!! I was disappointed when my iPhone 6 said that this device was no longer supported after I updated to iOS 9. I have waited and waited to get an update to allow me to use this, I have cleaned all connectors. My docking station is now just a super big and expensive phone charger. Please please fix this.
Worked until today
by Caseyfoofoo on 2014/05/24 15:08
This worked fine for me until today. Now it crashes instead of loading. Luckily the roofers were noisy enough to wake me. An alarm should always work. This must be repaired.
Awesome
by Golden419 on 2016/09/24 00:51
Works perfectly just purchased the device and downloaded app with no problems
Has not been updated in years
by Kithrenn on 2017/03/02 16:46
I own the speakers and they still work and I use it still everyday but it's not updated for iOS 10. Hopefully they can update the app sometime.
Does not work with IOS 10.
by Michael Trull on 2016/09/24 02:55
While its user interface is disappointing, I've enjoyed programming my Sony alarm clock using the app rather than the alarm clock's buttons. But it does not work since upgrading to IOS 10. Hopefully they will fix the app soon.
Fix it please!
by DyrudeTiltstorm on 2013/07/26 05:35
Although I love this app, it stopped working after the update. It really stinks because I use it for my alarm clock. Please fix it because it is what gets me up in the morning for the school year! Please fix it ASAP!
Won't sync after iOS 8.4 update
by Unclelizard on 2015/07/12 06:18
I have an iPhone 6+ with an older 30 pin alarm. I used the Apple 30 pin to FireWire adapter and it worked fine. Then I upgraded to iOS 8.4 and it no longer synced. After reinstalling it, it works. I docked it before using the app 1st time.
Great app to go with Sony Home center
by Smashnieto on 2015/07/30 23:04
App always worked great and I never had to worry about missing an alarm. Thank you!
App Update needed!!
by Ntowneagles99 on 2017/02/14 13:33
The dream machine worked great.. but the past week for some odd reason my alarm isn't working right, the machine itself is saying my alarm is going off.. but no sound!! But can play my music on the thing and it's fine! It keeps telling me it needs an update on the app. Maybe that's what is wrong!? Help!!
iOS update issues
by mscross91 on 2015/09/29 14:39
Since the latest iOS updates came out, the app's performance has been spotty in a way it never was before the updates. The app will DISPLAY as if it's sounding the alarm, but the docking station wont play any sound.
Horrible app
by Ukgal on 2014/06/10 02:59
I am constantly late getting up due to this app not working on a consistent basis. Sony ought to be ashamed for putting out a product that used an app that clearly has major issues! If I had known this was not going to have the bugs worked out by now, NEVER would have bought the docking station.
Really Disappointed
by Nan33 on 2013/04/22 02:44
I agree with everything said here... It was working great.... Then, last week, it suddenly stopped working with my 4S?? I've tried all the bug fixes only to learn that it's this darned app. Save your money and the headache!!! Two months in, and I'm headed straight to the Apple store! Should've done that to begin with...
It works again!
by sea_matt on 2017/10/16 21:02
I have a RDP-XA700IPN and an iPhone 8 so I am very very happy to see this app get updated and working again. Thank You!
Great Idea, needs work
by TJ Cabrera on 2013/04/05 20:14
Very buggy with my new iPhone 5. Alarm feature is now unreliable and makes my Sony docking station nearly useless. Besides the general reliability fix, I would like to see an update that would allow undocked alarm programming.
No Longer Works
by Crooktide on 2017/08/10 12:22
I had this alarm clock for not even a year before the app stopped working. They stopped updating it and now my phone doesn't charge or play music when plugged into the port. I had to delete the app because it was in fact slowing my phone down.
This Accessory May Not Be Supported
by 3746 on 2014/07/29 03:30
Used to work fine. Now this error message keeps lighting up all night. I have only had this since Christmas so I am a little ticked that updates are not fixing this. It recharges my phone and serves as a separate clock but that is about it. Please fix!
Fine.
by Raklan on 2013/12/25 16:11
The app works fine for me. I honestly think it's kinda pointless though. Anything you can do in the app I could do on my dock.
Worked great...before iOS 8 update...
by RazorX67 on 2014/09/22 10:54
...but now I get the "Accessory may not be supported" error and the app crashes when you try to open an alarm for editing. The app hasn't been updated since March of 2013.
Doesn't work with iOS 10
by Sushi_cat_4 on 2016/10/11 23:23
I used this product religiously everyday until I downloaded iOS 10. Now it doesn't work- please fix! I loved this product!!
Love!
by Leslies84 on 2013/08/06 11:22
This alarm app works with my Sony docking station well and I love waking up to the music I want to hear and at the volume I want.
Update
by Epic fun 88 on 2015/01/16 06:30
When I plug my phone in, it tells me that I can't use my ihome to charge my phone. There should be an update.
Works to setup clock radio, not much else.
by fallingrock on 2014/12/26 15:53
Works fine to configure my clock radio, and that's all I use it for. Seriously needs updating for new phones and ui standards.

D-Sappli
by W.412 on 2019/10/06 01:01
Will this app be updated so it can be used with ISO 11 software? I get a message saying need to update before ISO 11 is released by Apple Inc
App is junk just crashes
by Guierzilla on 2019/07/30 15:12
App works until you connect it to a dock then it crashes. Changed the clock type stayed on then I got a message that said. “App does not support this accessory”
Time
by Phoenix12121 on 2019/05/29 16:57
So the App works great but I gave it three stars because when my phone synced with the clock it completely set the clock to the wrong time
Get an update?!
by jthanso on 2018/04/26 01:53
Can we PLEASE get an update so that iPhone 6 and newer can work on the ICF-CS15iPN?! Pretty please. All I use this thing now for now is to charge my phone at night.
Works with iPhone X
by filmguy5 on 2018/03/13 20:12
I used this with my iPhone 4 on a Sony radio. Recently purchased the lightning adapter (only works with official oem Apple adapter) and it works perfectly with my iPhone X.

Needs an update as I don’t want to wake up to the same song every morning.
Confused
by Girthy Gonorrhea on 2018/01/24 21:26
Honestly, I don’t see how this app is useful with the speaker. Also you can only select songs from Apple Music which nobody uses.
Not much to it
by TIkiRoomFritz on 2018/01/16 01:37
Basically, the purpose of this app is to sync the time to your Sony iPhone/iPad/iPod sound dock. It does what it needs to do, and nothing more.

iPhone X Support needed
by Katja Miller on 2017/12/28 11:12
Please can you make this app work on iPhone x’s new screen size? Thank you.
@Dad2theBone
by NinGamer17 on 2017/12/26 14:37
I actually just got my adapter and to say the least I have no issues if others are still having issues it might be the fact you need a adapter can use video and not just audio quality.
I was shocked this app was even updated for iOS 11.
by DeAndre R. on 2017/12/05 18:20
iPhone X support would be nice.
It works again!

I have a RDP-XA700IPN and an iPhone 8 so I am very very happy to see this app get updated and working again. Thank You!

Support update needed
by CJAM613 on 2017/09/26 00:27
I have had this app to go with my dock for several years and it has worked wonderfully it to now!! Please get iOS 11 support!! This app is my primary alarm and at home program. Please hurry!!
Update needed stat!

Please update!
Won't work with iOS 11
by iHateMSFT on 2017/08/22 23:17
It's as good as dead. Too bad Sony doesn't want to update it. This will severely limit functionality of my alarm clock.
No Longer Works
by Crooktide on 2017/08/10 12:22
I had this alarm clock for not even a year before the app stopped working. They stopped updating it and now my phone doesn't charge or play music when plugged into the port. I had to delete the app because it was in fact slowing my phone down.
Orphaned App
by GoodMusicPlease? on 2017/07/07 23:56
It's a shame that a company like Sony, once a leader in Consumer Electronics has let this app go into oblivion. My iPhone 6+ will not play upon insetting into the adapter then insetting into the deck. After pressing on/off, audio in, mode, iPod&iPhone, OFF in some random order, then stopping and restarting my phone maybe I'll get some music. If the app were updated to iOS 10.3 I doubt I'd be having this issue. It's shame seeing apps left by the wayside, no longer supported due to other profitable projects within a company. And no I will not be buying a 4K Sony DSLR, nor will I buy a Sony OLED TV. There are better products for less money available. The savvy Consumer has spoken with his checkbook once again!
UPDATE IT!
by Fcotjpr on 2017/05/10 10:26
UPDATE!!
Has not been updated in years
by Kithrenn on 2017/03/02 16:46
I own the speakers and they still work and I use it still everyday but it's not updated for iOS 10. Hopefully they can update the app sometime.
App Update needed!!
by Ntowneagles99 on 2017/02/14 13:33
The dream machine worked great.. but the past week for some odd reason my alarm isn't working right, the machine itself is saying my alarm is going off.. but no sound!! But can play my music on the thing and it's fine! It keeps telling me it needs an update on the app. Maybe that's what is wrong!? Help!!
Sony has long abandoned this app
by Bt3of4 on 2016/12/22 00:21
Update past ios8 breaks it partly, past ios9 breaks it almost completely. Last app update was 3/2013

Does not work with IOS 10.
by Michael Trull on 2016/09/24 02:55
While its user interface is disappointing, I've enjoyed programming my Sony alarm clock using the app rather than the alarm clock's buttons. But it does not work since upgrading to IOS 10. Hopefully they will fix the app soon.
Awesome
by Golden419 on 2016/09/24 00:51
Works perfectly just purchased the device and downloaded app with no problems
Your APP is broken

I upgraded to the iPhone 6s Plus and now this app doesn't work. Can you update this horrible app please?
Please Fix this
by Aggglhddtjb on 2016/02/11 14:30
I loved playing music on my docking station!! I was disappointed when my iPhone 6 said that this device was no longer supported after I updated to iOS 9. I have waited and waited to get an update to allow me to use this, I have cleaned all connectors. My docking station is now just a super big and expensive phone charger. Please please fix this.
Not compatible with iPhone 6????

Too bad. Looks like I will be looking at iHome products instead of Sony products.

IOS 9 - Dream (Nightmare) Machine and iPhone 4S
by Frustrated Consumer33 on 2015/11/18 21:36
Since updating to IOS 9 (now 9.1 as I write) the wonderful features of this app (auto Time sync, set alarms, tune stations etc) are no longer working. So the journey began, contacted Sony Technical Support - their suggestions: try cleaning terminals, try resetting both phone and dock, still no luck - "This accessory is not supported on your iPhone”. Sony Tech Support final advice - call Apple, they made the change on their side. So, as futile as you would assume it was going to be, I contact Apple Support. Again, similar rhetoric, we don’t support 3rd Party Applications or devices - best bet is to contact Sony and request an app update. So, contacted Sony support again, spoke to an agent who explains they have no way to contact Sony Engineering, best advice, put something on the Customer forums and hope the community can advise a fix. I now have a very expensive cook radio next to my bed that is unable to sync, play music or program from my phone - hence the 1 star. If there was a lower rating I would give it - very poor support from, what I thought, a reputable company with quality products!
Not compatible with iphone6
by 1245ww on 2015/11/17 07:27
A mediocre app, but the sound quality on the dock/stereo was good, and now that I've upgraded my phone, the dock no longer works. Thanks for nothing.
Needs update
by Mightygoose on 2015/11/03 13:25
Does not work with iphone6 and 30 pin to lightning adapter.
Was simple & great! Now, not so much...
by Arpus94 on 2015/10/08 14:57
This app has worked well through all the updates and iPhones since getting my Sony clock radio when I had a iPhone 4. I am now having problems with iOS9. When I dock the alarm settings don't display anymore so I have to adjust the alarm on the radio which takes me back to an interface developed in the 70's. Seems like Sony could keep a current app that would work with all their products. Can't imagine it would take much resources to do. As FYI; I've deleted and reinstalled several times - once in a while it would work for a couple days.
iOS update issues
by mscross91 on 2015/09/29 14:39
Since the latest iOS updates came out, the app's performance has been spotty in a way it never was before the updates. The app will DISPLAY as if it's sounding the alarm, but the docking station wont play any sound.
Rarely chooses to charge my iPhone 5
by CR Wills on 2015/08/26 04:55
I suppose this is app/product criticism... I say "chooses" because it is seemingly random when my iPhone will or will not charge when docked. At first, I thought it was because the app hates certain apps on the iPhone, so I force quit them: no help. Then I thought maybe it was upset my other iOS products were making it cranky, so I force quit apps on my iPad, shut down Spotify on the laptop, turned off Netflix on the Xbox, still: no help. Yesterday it charged for half the night, then it choose to stop, so I woke up to a half-charged phone. This is simply an egregious oversight by a major corporation charging $60 for a product we expect to work. Do NOT use a device that requires this software. CAPITALISM ONLY WORKS IF YOU ONLY BUY WHAT ACTUALLY WORKS. EFF YOU, SONY.
Great app to go with Sony Home center
by Smashnieto on 2015/07/30 23:04
App always worked great and I never had to worry about missing an alarm. Thank you!
Are there any updates?
by Rick VST on 2015/07/26 04:53
I find it hard to understand how a company like Sony can drop the ball like they did on this app. Why is it that I have to go to Music to restart a song after it has stopped playing after the sleep timer has ended?
No alarm functionality
by Mmmmnnnnjjjjj on 2015/07/22 07:03
This app was working perfectly fine for me, but then I updated to iOS 8.4 and now the alarms are missing. I am annoyed as this app is required to make my Sony speaker stand work. Limping along with the sleep timer tonight.
Won't sync after iOS 8.4 update
by Unclelizard on 2015/07/12 06:18
I have an iPhone 6+ with an older 30 pin alarm. I used the Apple 30 pin to FireWire adapter and it worked fine. Then I upgraded to iOS 8.4 and it no longer synced. After reinstalling it, it works. I docked it before using the app 1st time.
It woke me up for awhile....
by Flipicaneze on 2015/05/21 03:47
The alarm clock function stopped working. If acts like it's there but now won't turn on the docking station. I have been late because of this as I depended on it for an alarm. Sony fix this problem. I have it installed on two iPhones and am iPad.
They have not updated this software for IOS 8
by JimL521 on 2015/04/24 14:54
If you purchased a Sony IPhone/IPad docking product and they require you to use this d-sappli app to make it work correctly (for sounding alarms, etc.), return the product because this software doesn’t work with IOS 8. It effectively bricks the Sony docking station for any IOS 8 device alarm clock functionality. Bluetooth and Playing music while docked still works, but you will not be able to use any alarm clock. Repeated emails to Sony have been ineffective. Better to buy the iHome products - at least they work.
App broken since IOS 8
by GJB-ATown on 2015/04/15 17:17
Sony- please pay attention to your customers! Applications had been broken since iOS 8.1 issues continue with 8.2. App broken , Sony ignores issue and offer no way to get assistance!
wish 24-hour clock mode worked..
by Zmott on 2015/02/01 05:19
Currently running iOS 7 with my 5s, at first I changed the time to 24 hour clock mode but all of a sudden the docking unit switched back to regular 12 hour clock.. I'm unable to now change it.. it's like tinge dock an phone are no longer communicating.. this app is a good idea just needs a update an a few bug repairs..
Update
by Epic fun 88 on 2015/01/16 06:30
When I plug my phone in, it tells me that I can't use my ihome to charge my phone. There should be an update.
New iOS
by Matthew Harrington on 2014/12/31 20:09
This app worked well on my old 4th gen iPod touch, but ever since I updated to the 5th gen and downloaded the new iOS it doesn't even open the app. Needs new update for compatibility rework...
Does what it’s supposed to do
by freewayjim on 2014/12/28 01:24
I don’t understand the low ratings and complaints, this is just a complimentary app that Sony made for the iPhone and the ICF-CS15iPN to communicate with each other, (works great on my iPhone 6) no it doesn’t have a ton of bells and whistles, what do you want it to do? play movies and balance your checkbook? It’s fine for what it does. I do wish the app were easier to find and had a name that made a little more sense but that’s splitting hairs.
Works to setup clock radio, not much else.
by fallingrock on 2014/12/26 15:53
Works fine to configure my clock radio, and that's all I use it for. Seriously needs updating for new phones and ui standards.
Awesome
by Ufkcjcj j on 2014/12/17 02:49
This app is the best app that can be connected to any other device!!!
App is good in theory
by Nanctur on 2014/12/11 17:20
This is my third comment! Please keep up with Apple bug fixes as I now can't charge my phone on this. I would love the features to work like they did out of the box. PLEASE!!
Not compatible with 8
by Hana Beginner on 2014/12/11 16:02
Had problems.. Deleted and reloaded app. Now runs with iOS 8.. :) 😉
Ugh
by GaelicSoxFan on 2014/12/04 10:30
I've tried this app in conjunction with my phone and the docking station. I'm trying very hard to put into words my feelings on this app that will effectively convey my feelings and will get this review past Apple's censors. Here it is: run away screaming from this app. It serves no purpose. If you have it running while docked, it limits the volume on the dock. Also, it negates the equalizer in iOS so everything sounds like it's coming out of a tin can.
I'm your customer service
by Jumpin_J on 2014/11/10 15:23
I wrote a previous review that when I upgraded to the iPhone 6 and IO8, the app would crash when opened. Of course there's nothing by Sony offering anything in the way of customer support so I was ready to just forget it. Then I though just for the hell of it to remove it from my device and then reinstall it. Since doing that, it's been working fine. The app was successful in syncing the phone to the clock radio, and with the iPhone bigger screen, the clock display looks great. The alarm works as advertised too. It's low on frills but it does what it says it's supposed to do. People should read the specifications carefully though. I can't be sure that putting an adapter to connect the clock radio to a non-lightning iPhone will work.
Boo
by SKIM OV on 2014/10/31 02:26

Shame on you Sony
by Stefan Totev on 2014/10/23 11:17
This app doesn't even deserve the time to write review for it. Total abandonment from Sony. No updates, no customer support, nothing. When you buy a new dab fm dock you expect it to work with the app provided. I can't change the names of the stations. The app is extremely buggy and ugly. Sony sent me email to leave review about the product. I left one and few days later they told me the review won't be published, because it describes customer service. And they don't want this…
Worked with iPhone 5, but not with 6.
by TCamp72a on 2014/10/06 16:13
Can no longer update the alarm times. Dock the phone, touch an alarm and the app shuts down.
Update

Not working this app needs a update for iOS 8
Was ok until iOS 8
by Ovrkil64 on 2014/09/24 11:27
iOS 8 killed this app. I recommend you stay away from it and buy a alarm clock from a company on top of there upgrades
Worked great...before iOS 8 update...
by RazorX67 on 2014/09/22 10:54
...but now I get the "Accessory may not be supported" error and the app crashes when you try to open an alarm for editing. The app hasn't been updated since March of 2013.
Doesn't work
by AZMovieMom on 2014/09/21 09:45
App does not properly communicate with the clock using iPhone 5s with iOS 8
iOS 8 renders app useless. This accessory may not be supported
by FreeAppGuru on 2014/09/20 01:59
All text fields are stuck empty with frozen screens. This is the error I get when docking. This accessory may not be supported. Also the iPhone playback will only play the last song listened to at the previous volume. So there is no reliability at all. Alarms are supposed to be reliable. What's the point in using an app that doesn't work? just like Sony to sell a well marketed alarm clock with no functionality support. I should have known better. Sony = unreliable.
Needs UPDATE
by Techdude Z on 2014/08/23 17:23
It NEEDS UPDATED It's PRETTY MUCH TOO LATE to make it iOS 7 compatible so you MIGHT want to make it iOS 8 compatible Seriously the design of iOS has MAJORLY CHANGED in iOS 7 so the app should be redesigned for iOS 7-8 compatibility Like I said it's TOO LATE to make it compatible for iOS 7 cause the debut of iOS 8 will be SOON
Unable to charge my Apple 5 phone
by Slot nj on 2014/08/04 04:24
I have a apple 5 iPhone w/ the lightening connection. My phone does not charge when is docked on my sony clock radio ICF-CS151iPN) . My alarm works, but when I wake in the morning my phone has not charged. My phone will charge on other docking stations. Will someone at sony please update is app! It has been over a year since the last update. I will buy a Sony product like this again.
Lightning connector version works with iPhone 5
by Dad2theBone on 2014/07/30 00:57
I'm sorry that others have had trouble with the 30-pin version of the ICF-CS15iPN. I do not doubt their experiences trying to work through the 30-pin-to-Lightning adapter. I know it has some limitations and have experienced them myself in other situations. My experience with the D-Sappli app has been positive. When I placed my iPhone 5 on the dock, it displayed a message that I needed the D-Sappli app and offered to take me to the iTunes Store. I consented, and was, understandably, distressed to see the low ratings on the app. I downloaded it anyway and was pleasantly surprised. It asked if I wanted to sync the dock's time with my iPhone's and after I agreed, it did so flawlessly. Then I set the dock's 2 alarms using the app and tapped "send"—and they both updated on the dock. So far everything seems to work as intended. Perhaps the adapter is the problem rather than the app.
This Accessory May Not Be Supported
by 3746 on 2014/07/29 03:30
Used to work fine. Now this error message keeps lighting up all night. I have only had this since Christmas so I am a little ticked that updates are not fixing this. It recharges my phone and serves as a separate clock but that is about it. Please fix!
Won't open

Application won't open. I can't use. Needed update as soon as possible
Need lots of improvements
by Maloud on 2014/07/14 14:08
Syncing the clock isn't accurate, it's either 5 minutes more or an hour before. And there's not much to do an application for, this application is a disappointment!!
App no longer operates
by Karen Krull on 2014/07/14 05:41
I bought this docking system for my iPhone 3s but now that I have an iPhone 5c even if I try using an official 30 pin to lightning adapter, the D-Sappli app does not allow me to set the alarm, change the time setting, or set any music or radio stations. All i can do now is charge my phone. This app makes my Sony dock useless. I am disappointed because I invested a lot of money in this system but have not been able to keep it operational since the March 2014 update. At that time even with the 3s, the alarm was not reliable, I cannot use the remote, and now the 5c won't change to the alarm and radio station setting screen. It only displays the time on the phone, not allowing me to sinc to my dock.
Annoyed
by Wyojhwk on 2014/07/03 17:58
Not happy I had to buy a new alarm clock since the pin system came out and now it won't even charge my phone. Says the device is not compatible... What a joke!!!
Okay
by _ngymnast_ on 2014/06/29 12:15
When I first got this app, it worked fine. I was able to get up in the morning for school or for church. Now, I set my alarm, and check everything to make sure everything is how it is supposed to be, and my alarm isn't going off. It's been doing this for a few weeks and I'm getting annoyed. How can I make it go back to normal?
Horrible app
by Ukgal on 2014/06/10 02:59
I am constantly late getting up due to this app not working on a consistent basis. Sony ought to be ashamed for putting out a product that used an app that clearly has major issues! If I had known this was not going to have the bugs worked out by now, NEVER would have bought the docking station.
MANY Improvements to be Made!
by Slayer of Heroes on 2014/05/26 16:45
It's just not that much of a help for anything! I can't even switch playlists on my i-5! :/
Worked until today
by Caseyfoofoo on 2014/05/24 15:08
This worked fine for me until today. Now it crashes instead of loading. Luckily the roofers were noisy enough to wake me. An alarm should always work. This must be repaired.
Pretty Good
by Mac user /// on 2014/05/12 20:37
This app has some very nice clock modes that make the iPhone look and work great when docked (even when not on a Sony device.) It has some very good functionality with Sony devices too, being able to play music, display & set alarms, adjust radio stations, and more.
Please provide a fix after iOS upgrades
by Fuzzyschick on 2014/05/09 14:08
I used to love my Sony dock and used it on a daily basis, but after iOS upgrades I can no longer play music with it. It has been months and nothing has been done. Please fix these issues!!!!
Quit working!

Fine.

It works well up until I'm laying in bed and I switch from radio to music and it shuts my iPod off and puts it to sleep. I hate having to crawl out of bed and re-swipe the lock to turn the app back on. I would like that to be fixed
D-Sappli
by DBranson2 on 2013/11/06 06:49
The app worked well but the ability to set an alarm to play music stopped after iOS 7 was installed. An update should be released to fix this bug.

Buggy alarm setting
by Ajippolito on 2013/10/28 11:11
If you set the alarm from the ap, and set it it iPod, the buzzer goes off. If you set it with the dock, it works. I am partly deaf and need a loud alarm. The buzzer doesn't do it for me. Would like to have settings do what they say they do.
iOS 7
by sammonty517 on 2013/09/29 03:02

Need to update for iOS 7!!
by Great TVFan on 2013/09/26 22:22
This is a great, functional app for those of us who have a Sony clock radio with a docking station. But since updating to iOS 7 on my iPhone 4, I now get the message: "This device is incompatible..." I would have rated this app with four stars, but because of this issue I've only given it two. Please update your app ASAP!! Thanks!!
Before & After
by buffcode on 2013/09/23 04:50
Pretty ticked off that I can't play my iPhone 4S through my Sony docking station alarm clock now! That was main reason for getting it! Now it's just a charging base. :(
Update for iPhone 4S

Problems
by ka9ohv on 2013/09/01 09:44
Two problems with this APP that Sony denies is their problems. 1. When docked it disables my "Do Not Disturb" feature on the I-Phone5. And 2nd it does not allow you to select music you desire in the sleep timer. Sony needs to fix these two bugs. Has anyone else experienced the disabling of the "Do Not Disturb" featured when docked? I would like to know.
Was good...
by luvtheright on 2013/08/27 03:46
Loved the app until the 4.0 upgrade deleted the option for an alarm clock. Five star then, 1 now seeing how it's useless for me. Now just frustrated.
Terrible app

by Jumpin_J on 2014/11/10 15:23
I wrote a previous review that when I upgraded to the iPhone 6 and IO8, the app would crash when opened. Of course there's nothing by Sony offering anything in the way of customer support so I was ready to just forget it. Then I though just for the hell of it to remove it from my device and then reinstall it. Since doing that, it's been working fine. The app was successful in syncing the phone to the clock radio, and with the iPhone bigger screen, the clock display looks great. The alarm works as advertised too. It's low on frills but it does what it says it's supposed to do. People should read the specifications carefully though. I can't be sure that putting an adapter to connect the clock radio to a non-lightning iPhone will work.
Good for Clock/Playback, No Phone or Messaging Support
by Quidnon on 2013/07/28 19:45
I love the clock features, and the playback is very good. However, I'm using it with an iPhone, and I expect to hear my ringtones or message alert when I get one. I've missed multiple calls because the clock overrides EVERYTHING having to do with the iPhone capability. I'm looking for another app that will alert me to incoming calls and messages.
IOS 9 - Dream (Nightmare) Machine and iPhone 4S
by Frustrated Consumer33 on 2015/11/18 21:36
Since updating to IOS 9 (now 9.1 as I write) the wonderful features of this app (auto Time sync, set alarms, tune stations etc) are no longer working. So the journey began, contacted Sony Technical Support - their suggestions: try cleaning terminals, try resetting both phone and dock, still no luck - "This accessory is not supported on your iPhone”. Sony Tech Support final advice - call Apple, they made the change on their side. So, as futile as you would assume it was going to be, I contact Apple Support. Again, similar rhetoric, we don’t support 3rd Party Applications or devices - best bet is to contact Sony and request an app update. So, contacted Sony support again, spoke to an agent who explains they have no way to contact Sony Engineering, best advice, put something on the Customer forums and hope the community can advise a fix. I now have a very expensive cook radio next to my bed that is unable to sync, play music or program from my phone - hence the 1 star. If there was a lower rating I would give it - very poor support from, what I thought, a reputable company with quality products!
iOS update kills the functionality
by Jamesbmc on 2013/07/11 05:00
Please fix the issue with the iOS upgrades and functionality to play music from the 30 pin apple products with the Sony dock. I know the iPhone 5 is out with the new Sony dock but not everyone is able to upgrade and purchase These. These phones are an investment for sure. My iPod touch iPhone 3 gs and wife's iPhone 4 and my new iPhone 4S will not work. Surly Sony can work with apple to find out what changed in the os. If apple causes the problem and will not provide a solution. Let your customers know. Maybe even give trade allotment or adapter kit to allow to play I have to use the mic cable but that is not as food quality sound as the dock seemed to create. Please find a resolution for your customers.
Was simple & great! Now, not so much...
by Arpus94 on 2015/10/08 14:57
This app has worked well through all the updates and iPhones since getting my Sony clock radio when I had a iPhone 4. I am now having problems with iOS9. When I dock the alarm settings don't display anymore so I have to adjust the alarm on the radio which takes me back to an interface developed in the 70's. Seems like Sony could keep a current app that would work with all their products. Can't imagine it would take much resources to do. As FYI; I've deleted and reinstalled several times - once in a while it would work for a couple days.
Orphaned App
by GoodMusicPlease? on 2017/07/07 23:56
It's a shame that a company like Sony, once a leader in Consumer Electronics has let this app go into oblivion. My iPhone 6+ will not play upon insetting into the adapter then insetting into the deck. After pressing on/off, audio in, mode, iPod&iPhone, OFF in some random order, then stopping and restarting my phone maybe I'll get some music. If the app were updated to iOS 10.3 I doubt I'd be having this issue. It's shame seeing apps left by the wayside, no longer supported due to other profitable projects within a company. And no I will not be buying a 4K Sony DSLR, nor will I buy a Sony OLED TV. There are better products for less money available. The savvy Consumer has spoken with his checkbook once again!
Does what it’s supposed to do
by freewayjim on 2014/12/28 01:24
I don’t understand the low ratings and complaints, this is just a complimentary app that Sony made for the iPhone and the ICF-CS15iPN to communicate with each other, (works great on my iPhone 6) no it doesn’t have a ton of bells and whistles, what do you want it to do? play movies and balance your checkbook? It’s fine for what it does. I do wish the app were easier to find and had a name that made a little more sense but that’s splitting hairs.
Aweful App
by mn10731 on 2013/07/09 00:52
Sleep player is useless because it does not have a separate volume from the alarm. So, if you play your music low when going to sleep, the alarm music will be set to the same low volume. Duh! The alarm wake to music will not play the song selected. Instead, it will play whatever song was being played last in the iPod music app. When you plug the phone into the doc, it does not start the app. So if you forget to start the app and push the setting to the clock, the alarm won't go off. Overall, the Sony clock provides a power charging hookup and a clock I can see at night. Nothing else useful from the standard iPhone alarm.
It only works in some ways.
by Nônicknamesleft on 2013/03/26 13:37
I use a Sony dock system and it amplifies my music just fine. The alarm is what I have a problem with. The volume was a pain to fix, because it would play so quietly it would never wake me up. My solution for that was go to the iPod settings and not allow alarm volume to be messed with by the buttons. However, my new problem is with the snooze function. When I press snooze, the app will immediately lock up and not wake me up 5 minutes later.
Works with iPhone X
by filmguy5 on 2018/03/13 20:12
I used this with my iPhone 4 on a Sony radio. Recently purchased the lightning adapter (only works with official oem Apple adapter) and it works perfectly with my iPhone X. My only complaint is I’d like to program each day of the week for waking up to a different song each morning and it only lets me select weekly. Needs an update as I don’t want to wake up to the same song every morning.
They have not updated this software for IOS 8
by JimL521 on 2015/04/24 14:54
If you purchased a Sony IPhone/IPad docking product and they require you to use this d-sappli app to make it work correctly (for sounding alarms, etc.), return the product because this software doesn’t work with IOS 8. It effectively bricks the Sony docking station for any IOS 8 device alarm clock functionality. Bluetooth and Playing music while docked still works, but you will not be able to use any alarm clock. Repeated emails to Sony have been ineffective. Better to buy the iHome products - at least they work.
iOS 8 renders app useless. This accessory may not be supported
by FreeAppGuru on 2014/09/20 01:59
All text fields are stuck empty with frozen screens. This is the error I get when docking. This accessory may not be supported. Also the iPhone playback will only play the last song listened to at the previous volume. So there is no reliability at all. Alarms are supposed to be reliable. What's the point in using an app that doesn't work? just like Sony to sell a well marketed alarm clock with no functionality support. I should have known better. Sony = unreliable.
Shame on you Sony
by Stefan Totev on 2014/10/23 11:17
This app doesn't even deserve the time to write review for it. Total abandonment from Sony. No updates, no customer support, nothing. When you buy a new dab fm dock you expect it to work with the app provided. I can't change the names of the stations. The app is extremely buggy and ugly. Sony sent me email to leave review about the product. I left one and few days later they told me the review won't be published, because it describes customer service. And they don't want this…
It woke me up for awhile....
by Flipicaneze on 2015/05/21 03:47
The alarm clock function stopped working. If acts like it's there but now won't turn on the docking station. I have been late because of this as I depended on it for an alarm. Sony fix this problem. I have it installed on two iPhones and am iPad.
Okay
by _ngymnast_ on 2014/06/29 12:15
When I first got this app, it worked fine. I was able to get up in the morning for school or for church. Now, I set my alarm, and check everything to make sure everything is how it is supposed to be, and my alarm isn't going off. It's been doing this for a few weeks and I'm getting annoyed. How can I make it go back to normal?
Problems
by ka9ohv on 2013/09/01 09:44
Two problems with this APP that Sony denies is their problems. 1. When docked it disables my "Do Not Disturb" feature on the I-Phone5. And 2nd it does not allow you to select music you desire in the sleep timer. Sony needs to fix these two bugs. Has anyone else experienced the disabling of the "Do Not Disturb" featured when docked? I would like to know.
Pretty Good
by Mac user /// on 2014/05/12 20:37
This app has some very nice clock modes that make the iPhone look and work great when docked (even when not on a Sony device.) It has some very good functionality with Sony devices too, being able to play music, display & set alarms, adjust radio stations, and more.
Are there any updates?
by Rick VST on 2015/07/26 04:53
I find it hard to understand how a company like Sony can drop the ball like they did on this app. Why is it that I have to go to Music to restart a song after it has stopped playing after the sleep timer has ended?
Ugh
by GaelicSoxFan on 2014/12/04 10:30
I've tried this app in conjunction with my phone and the docking station. I'm trying very hard to put into words my feelings on this app that will effectively convey my feelings and will get this review past Apple's censors. Here it is: run away screaming from this app. It serves no purpose. If you have it running while docked, it limits the volume on the dock. Also, it negates the equalizer in iOS so everything sounds like it's coming out of a tin can.
Awesome app
by ShadowDragon17 on 2013/03/14 17:25
Very useful app I love using my docking station with it It would be nice if you have the ability to change the color of the clocks on all operating system platforms it would be a nice improvement
Music
by ABTP. on 2013/11/08 13:36
It works well up until I'm laying in bed and I switch from radio to music and it shuts my iPod off and puts it to sleep. I hate having to crawl out of bed and re-swipe the lock to turn the app back on. I would like that to be fixed
Unable to charge my Apple 5 phone
by Slot nj on 2014/08/04 04:24
I have a apple 5 iPhone w/ the lightening connection. My phone does not charge when is docked on my sony clock radio ICF-CS151iPN) . My alarm works, but when I wake in the morning my phone has not charged. My phone will charge on other docking stations. Will someone at sony please update is app! It has been over a year since the last update. I will buy a Sony product like this again.
Not much to it
by TIkiRoomFritz on 2018/01/16 01:37
Basically, the purpose of this app is to sync the time to your Sony iPhone/iPad/iPod sound dock. It does what it needs to do, and nothing more. I grew concerned that they wouldn't update the app to work with iOS 10, as it had gone for 4 years without any updates. Fortunately, Sony FINALLY updated the app.
Support update needed
by CJAM613 on 2017/09/26 00:27
I have had this app to go with my dock for several years and it has worked wonderfully it to now!! Please get iOS 11 support!! This app is my primary alarm and at home program. Please hurry!!
To the users who got it before today's update
by Rockstarr235 on 2013/03/15 00:57
I really hope this update helped all of you fellow Sony alarm clock buyers . This app works great for me even with IOS 6.
Please Fix this
by Aggglhddtjb on 2016/02/11 14:30
I loved playing music on my docking station!! I was disappointed when my iPhone 6 said that this device was no longer supported after I updated to iOS 9. I have waited and waited to get an update to allow me to use this, I have cleaned all connectors. My docking station is now just a super big and expensive phone charger. Please please fix this.
Worked until today
by Caseyfoofoo on 2014/05/24 15:08
This worked fine for me until today. Now it crashes instead of loading. Luckily the roofers were noisy enough to wake me. An alarm should always work. This must be repaired.
Awesome
by Golden419 on 2016/09/24 00:51
Works perfectly just purchased the device and downloaded app with no problems
Has not been updated in years
by Kithrenn on 2017/03/02 16:46
I own the speakers and they still work and I use it still everyday but it's not updated for iOS 10. Hopefully they can update the app sometime.
Does not work with IOS 10.
by Michael Trull on 2016/09/24 02:55
While its user interface is disappointing, I've enjoyed programming my Sony alarm clock using the app rather than the alarm clock's buttons. But it does not work since upgrading to IOS 10. Hopefully they will fix the app soon.
Fix it please!
by DyrudeTiltstorm on 2013/07/26 05:35
Although I love this app, it stopped working after the update. It really stinks because I use it for my alarm clock. Please fix it because it is what gets me up in the morning for the school year! Please fix it ASAP!
Won't sync after iOS 8.4 update
by Unclelizard on 2015/07/12 06:18
I have an iPhone 6+ with an older 30 pin alarm. I used the Apple 30 pin to FireWire adapter and it worked fine. Then I upgraded to iOS 8.4 and it no longer synced. After reinstalling it, it works. I docked it before using the app 1st time.
Great app to go with Sony Home center
by Smashnieto on 2015/07/30 23:04
App always worked great and I never had to worry about missing an alarm. Thank you!
App Update needed!!
by Ntowneagles99 on 2017/02/14 13:33
The dream machine worked great.. but the past week for some odd reason my alarm isn't working right, the machine itself is saying my alarm is going off.. but no sound!! But can play my music on the thing and it's fine! It keeps telling me it needs an update on the app. Maybe that's what is wrong!? Help!!
iOS update issues
by mscross91 on 2015/09/29 14:39
Since the latest iOS updates came out, the app's performance has been spotty in a way it never was before the updates. The app will DISPLAY as if it's sounding the alarm, but the docking station wont play any sound.
Horrible app
by Ukgal on 2014/06/10 02:59
I am constantly late getting up due to this app not working on a consistent basis. Sony ought to be ashamed for putting out a product that used an app that clearly has major issues! If I had known this was not going to have the bugs worked out by now, NEVER would have bought the docking station.
Really Disappointed
by Nan33 on 2013/04/22 02:44
I agree with everything said here... It was working great.... Then, last week, it suddenly stopped working with my 4S?? I've tried all the bug fixes only to learn that it's this darned app. Save your money and the headache!!! Two months in, and I'm headed straight to the Apple store! Should've done that to begin with...
It works again!
by sea_matt on 2017/10/16 21:02
I have a RDP-XA700IPN and an iPhone 8 so I am very very happy to see this app get updated and working again. Thank You!
Great Idea, needs work
by TJ Cabrera on 2013/04/05 20:14
Very buggy with my new iPhone 5. Alarm feature is now unreliable and makes my Sony docking station nearly useless. Besides the general reliability fix, I would like to see an update that would allow undocked alarm programming.
No Longer Works
by Crooktide on 2017/08/10 12:22
I had this alarm clock for not even a year before the app stopped working. They stopped updating it and now my phone doesn't charge or play music when plugged into the port. I had to delete the app because it was in fact slowing my phone down.
This Accessory May Not Be Supported
by 3746 on 2014/07/29 03:30
Used to work fine. Now this error message keeps lighting up all night. I have only had this since Christmas so I am a little ticked that updates are not fixing this. It recharges my phone and serves as a separate clock but that is about it. Please fix!
Fine.
by Raklan on 2013/12/25 16:11
The app works fine for me. I honestly think it's kinda pointless though. Anything you can do in the app I could do on my dock.
Worked great...before iOS 8 update...
by RazorX67 on 2014/09/22 10:54
...but now I get the "Accessory may not be supported" error and the app crashes when you try to open an alarm for editing. The app hasn't been updated since March of 2013.
Doesn't work with iOS 10
by Sushi_cat_4 on 2016/10/11 23:23
I used this product religiously everyday until I downloaded iOS 10. Now it doesn't work- please fix! I loved this product!!
Love!
by Leslies84 on 2013/08/06 11:22
This alarm app works with my Sony docking station well and I love waking up to the music I want to hear and at the volume I want.
Update
by Epic fun 88 on 2015/01/16 06:30
When I plug my phone in, it tells me that I can't use my ihome to charge my phone. There should be an update.
Works to setup clock radio, not much else.
by fallingrock on 2014/12/26 15:53
Works fine to configure my clock radio, and that's all I use it for. Seriously needs updating for new phones and ui standards.
