Boom Remote
Description
The Boom Remote is a companion app for Boom 2 and Boom 3D, the most popular system-wide audio booster for Mac. With the Boom Remote on your iPhone or iPad (iOS 9 and later), you get to wirelessly control your favorite Boom 2 and Boom 3D features in addition to other well known Mac apps like Spotify, VLC, QuickTime and iTunes. Simply connect your iPhone or iPad to the same WiFi network as your Mac and watch the magic unfold! This remote gives you the convenience of being able to wirelessly change the volume, toggle equalizers and effects as well as control playback on other Mac media apps from anywhere in your home. The best part is that you only need to have Boom 3D installed on your Mac for you to enjoy these features from the comfort of your seat. The Boom Remote can: • Control Boom's volume as well as your Mac's default volume • Change Boom's Equalizers and Effects • Access playback controls of Spotify, VLC, QuickTime and iTunes on your Mac This app is perfect for when you’re away from your Mac and watching a movie, playing and changing tracks and just about any other situation where you simply want to wirelessly control your favorite Boom features. Note: Boom Remote runs only when paired with Boom 2 (v1.2.1) and later and Boom 3D (V1.1) and later on the Mac. *** Boom 3D is an audio app for Mac (10.10.3 and later) that enhances any audio to make it sound much more optimized. With an intelligent algorithm, Boom 3D personalizes audio to perfectly fit the type of Mac in use; be it the MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, iMac etc. Please search for Boom 3D on the Mac App Store for more details ***
Needs to offer solutions
by Good typer. on 2021/02/07 18:30
I installed this after installing Boom3D on my iMac. I tried using it and it said Boom3D was not running system wide. I still haven’t figured out how to make it do so. Their site offers a video titled How to Run Boom3D System Wide, which then only gives a sort of ad of it working thusly. But no instructions on the setting. Frustrating.
Connection issues; Mac only
by k9gardner on 2020/10/17 15:54
When I started using Boom Remote, I had a lot of difficulty. The application would start to open and then abruptly quit. After restarting both devices, this seems to have been resolved. I sometimes still have difficulty connecting to my MacBook Air when it’s streaming music via Boom 3D. Mostly it works though. The fact that it can’t connect to a Windows PC running Boom 3D however is disappointing. It’s a platform-agnostic world now, baby! Let’s get with the program.
Works great
by kweigand on 2019/01/20 14:22
Works in Mojave just great! I would love to see this ported to Apple Watch
Cool but needs option

With such a great Mac software I’d think the developers would have fixed this problem? Please fix this for us. Thank you.
Can't see MBP on iPhone

Does not see my MBP which is running High Sierra, even though MBP says the Boom Remote is on.
Doesn’t work
by c123456sm on 2018/01/29 22:53
It doesn’t work with a MBP with High Sierra, I emailed asking for a solution and no response. Don’t waste time downloading it.
Outdated??
by DerScrivner on 2017/12/20 22:37
Doesn’t work. Won’t find my Mac with High Sierra. There are no support materials for Boom Remote. They just send you to Boom support.
Highly recommend...

Boom3D on a MBP + Apple Airpods + Boom Remote = Pretty Amazing Audio Experience
It is how apps should work - automatically!
by rtcordo on 2017/07/24 21:29
I expected a real hassle just syncing the iPhone app to my macbook; but it found it by itself. that was awesome, as is the entire app system. boom 2 is worth $14.99.
Amazing app! (dev, pls read)
by SJF.me on 2017/07/15 22:11
Awesome app. Just wish I wouldn't have to press "Start Boomin" to start boomin. I feel like that is implied when starting the app. Otherwise, great app! Love the controller idea, and works like a charm. #Boomin

Boom 2 remote does not work
by kenjordan on 2016/09/23 01:21
Have the latest Boom2 on iMac (v1.5) and iPhone (v1.2) but they don't talk. They're on the same network but just don't see each other. I've restarted both.... it's a bust.
Incompatible version
by Notworking 1215 on 2016/09/17 18:30
Remote version 1.2 is incompatible wit Mac version 1.5.. Messages (update boom 2 on your Mac, no device found). Same wifi but it won't work..
Amazing Boom!
by J.F. CIRILO on 2016/09/16 16:34
Love all the Boom Apps! Got them all in my iOS devices and Macs!
Doesnt seem to work once you install boom driver
by M.Y.T.H.Ink on 2016/08/16 04:06
Worked initially then stopped working while configuring boom 2 and completely stooped working once i installed the boom audio driver. This a must for the mac since default acoustics volume on the mac retina volume is pathetically LOW with out BOOM. The remote app needs more work.
Was working? No updates?
by Gwegowy on 2016/04/06 06:08
I was using this remote quite fine just not that long ago and now nothing. Why? I will continue to use this really awesome app for my computer but now I have to do stuff and nobody likes have to do stuff. C'mon.
Excellent app, just perfect.
by rassnic on 2016/03/27 17:55
Works great, I love the dots dancing, and that is a control for everything for a lazy
Good but needs better preset switching
by ipodtouchguru6 on 2016/01/31 18:06
I really like Boom 2 on the mac. This remote app is a nice bonus, I appreciate it being free. It all actually works really nicely. My main issue is when choosing for an EQ preset. When it's night time, I like to change my EQ to a "bass reducer" preset. The app makes it difficult to just select said preset. I have to scroll through all the other presets (and these presets toggle on while scrolling through) this means I pass the super bass booster presets and get booming bass when I'm trying to get the opposite. So now at night time I have to disturb the neighbors with some booming bass while I'm trying to tame the bass. Not a huge issue but I think the presets feature needs to be re-thought so you don't have to enable every preset in your list just to get to the one on the other side of the alphabet.
Doesn’t work
by PaulNorman on 2016/01/28 15:49
The app doesn’t connect with my wifi.
Awesome
by dalemichael on 2016/01/25 22:28
It's worth the price for just the remote that controls volume, skip a track, go back, select the new filters. Not to mention the great sound. You music on your Mac will come alive. Also well worth the upgrade price. Get this, you be happy you did.
Don’t Bother
by contessakitty on 2015/12/14 21:02
It doesn’t see my Boom 2 on my mac so it doesn’t work and getting prompts to update my boom 2 because there was no devices found was annoying.
It simply does not work - complete waste of space
by Richie3000 on 2015/12/01 22:03
What more can one say for an app that does nothing but take up valuable space without performing its sole function? Despite following the idiot-proof directions, the app simply does nothing. Fix the app.
Please fix remote
by SD92127 on 2015/11/30 01:28
I've used Boom for years. When I saw the updated App with the ability to use iPhone as remote control I upgraded. But as others mentioned, the remote control feature simply doesn't work. I'm on same wifi network but it says nothing connected. Please fix.
Icing on the cake

Excellent companion to the desktop Boom 2 app. Works flawlessly and allows me to remotely control all possible settings through my iPhone. Nice work!
It really really works well!

I had tryed it,works so well but sometimes connect broken.
It works.
by johnny_sparks on 2015/10/17 23:19
Boom 2 is worth every penny. I use an iMac as my entertainment hub. This app is essential for movies and music. Now as for the remote all not working... It works fine and worked the first time I tried to set it up. I really have no idea why it wouldn't work for some people. Maybe they can't follow instructions on their phone and computer? Seriously, some people get confused easily. And these people shouldn't review apps that work because of their inability to set up a simple app.
It works
by wherearethenicks on 2015/10/14 15:42
I don’t know why everyone’s having so much trouble, it works (and super easily too). Using non-app store version btw.

This app, she does not work.

No easy system-wide control
by MABIUS on 2015/09/24 02:12
There doesn’t appear to be a simple system-wide volume control like in the previous version. I have to select a file to boost. I want to just amplify the volume overall...
PERFECT

GREAT GREAT APP. EASY TO USE.
What a great app
by Jasonofoc on 2015/09/04 17:49
I'm writing this for the Boom 2 app for my Mac Book Pro as I'm unable to write a review from the App Store program on my laptop. Anyway, awesome app. I've been streaming videos on Netflix, YouTube and Amazon for years and most of the time the volume is painfully low, even with it turned up all the way on both the laptop and the web browser, to the point where I can't watch it (unless I use headphones or external speakers, which I don't want to do - who wants to lug around cumbersome speakers and wires with their laptop?) I was even considering getting a cheap pc laptop just for watching movies. However this app fixed the problem instantly and now I can watch anything and not have to worry about the volume. So grateful and thanks so much for this great app!
Just Amazing
by CMaderaTM on 2015/07/14 16:58
Hands down the 1st Mac app o ever bought was Boom v1. I am glad to see how far you guys have come with such app. Simple can't state how well this app has worked. Glad to see I can also use my iPhone 6 Plus to control the new Boom 2
Version 1... Not perfect
by Orion_JJ on 2015/06/26 04:54
I've been waiting for this app, but... Fix the connection problem, add a Spotify control once that is done... Perfecto!
I can only hit refresh so many times
by LITERALLY NEVER WORKS on 2015/06/11 20:59
The app literally never connects to Boom on my Mac and in a miracle it does, the connection times out as soon as my cell's screen begins to dim. Please just wait to release apps until they are tested and prove to work more at least 90% of the time.
FLIPPIN LOVE IT!

Need version for iPhone.
by Hteethsweeper on 2015/06/05 00:48
Disappointed. Was hoping we finally got a version for iPhone. Huge let down.
Released too soon
by AMT11222 on 2015/06/04 18:24
This dev LOVES releasing things before he ought to, compound that with tremendously horrible customer service if you rub him the wrong way and you’re going to find upset customers. So yeah, it’s buggy. Oh well, he’ll get that fixed ASAP, for certain. What’s more, I can’t find a single time when I think I would ever use this. I mean, I want to think I would, but I even already deleted it. I’m glad the dev is at least trying some things after a spectacular money grab with his wonky policies that I want to assume are somehow lost in translation. More importantly, at least he can’t troll twitter and develop at the same time. : /
Great!!!
by marp04 on 2015/06/04 16:44
Please add control support for Spotify!!!
Like the idea, needs a little work
by curtisthefox on 2015/06/03 20:30
I totally understand that this is the very first release of this app, so I don't expect it to work perfect. My main issue is that it doesn't stay connected in the background. As soon as the phone is locked, or the app isn't in the foreground, it disconnects from the computer. I'm not sure if this is an issue on the phone or the computer, but I'm guessing it's the phone since multitasking is more of an issue there. Hopefully this issue gets resolved, but overall, I would rather use this than Apple's default remote app.
Love it works great

GREAT GREAT APP. EASY TO USE.
It is how apps should work - automatically!
by rtcordo on 2017/07/24 21:29
I expected a real hassle just syncing the iPhone app to my macbook; but it found it by itself. that was awesome, as is the entire app system. boom 2 is worth $14.99.

Boom Remote
Description
The Boom Remote is a companion app for Boom 2 and Boom 3D, the most popular system-wide audio booster for Mac. With the Boom Remote on your iPhone or iPad (iOS 9 and later), you get to wirelessly control your favorite Boom 2 and Boom 3D features in addition to other well known Mac apps like Spotify, VLC, QuickTime and iTunes. Simply connect your iPhone or iPad to the same WiFi network as your Mac and watch the magic unfold! This remote gives you the convenience of being able to wirelessly change the volume, toggle equalizers and effects as well as control playback on other Mac media apps from anywhere in your home. The best part is that you only need to have Boom 3D installed on your Mac for you to enjoy these features from the comfort of your seat. The Boom Remote can: • Control Boom's volume as well as your Mac's default volume • Change Boom's Equalizers and Effects • Access playback controls of Spotify, VLC, QuickTime and iTunes on your Mac This app is perfect for when you’re away from your Mac and watching a movie, playing and changing tracks and just about any other situation where you simply want to wirelessly control your favorite Boom features. Note: Boom Remote runs only when paired with Boom 2 (v1.2.1) and later and Boom 3D (V1.1) and later on the Mac. *** Boom 3D is an audio app for Mac (10.10.3 and later) that enhances any audio to make it sound much more optimized. With an intelligent algorithm, Boom 3D personalizes audio to perfectly fit the type of Mac in use; be it the MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, iMac etc. Please search for Boom 3D on the Mac App Store for more details ***
Needs to offer solutions
by Good typer. on 2021/02/07 18:30
I installed this after installing Boom3D on my iMac. I tried using it and it said Boom3D was not running system wide. I still haven’t figured out how to make it do so. Their site offers a video titled How to Run Boom3D System Wide, which then only gives a sort of ad of it working thusly. But no instructions on the setting. Frustrating.
Connection issues; Mac only
by k9gardner on 2020/10/17 15:54
When I started using Boom Remote, I had a lot of difficulty. The application would start to open and then abruptly quit. After restarting both devices, this seems to have been resolved. I sometimes still have difficulty connecting to my MacBook Air when it’s streaming music via Boom 3D. Mostly it works though. The fact that it can’t connect to a Windows PC running Boom 3D however is disappointing. It’s a platform-agnostic world now, baby! Let’s get with the program.
Works great

It doesn’t work with a MBP with High Sierra, I emailed asking for a solution and no response. Don’t waste time downloading it.

Doesn’t work. Won’t find my Mac with High Sierra. There are no support materials for Boom Remote. They just send you to Boom support.

Boom 2 remote does not work
by kenjordan on 2016/09/23 01:21
Have the latest Boom2 on iMac (v1.5) and iPhone (v1.2) but they don't talk. They're on the same network but just don't see each other. I've restarted both.... it's a bust.
Incompatible version
by Notworking 1215 on 2016/09/17 18:30
Remote version 1.2 is incompatible wit Mac version 1.5.. Messages (update boom 2 on your Mac, no device found). Same wifi but it won't work..
Amazing Boom!
by J.F. CIRILO on 2016/09/16 16:34
Love all the Boom Apps! Got them all in my iOS devices and Macs!
Doesnt seem to work once you install boom driver
by M.Y.T.H.Ink on 2016/08/16 04:06
Worked initially then stopped working while configuring boom 2 and completely stooped working once i installed the boom audio driver. This a must for the mac since default acoustics volume on the mac retina volume is pathetically LOW with out BOOM. The remote app needs more work.
Was working? No updates?
by Gwegowy on 2016/04/06 06:08
I was using this remote quite fine just not that long ago and now nothing. Why? I will continue to use this really awesome app for my computer but now I have to do stuff and nobody likes have to do stuff. C'mon.
Excellent app, just perfect.
by rassnic on 2016/03/27 17:55
Works great, I love the dots dancing, and that is a control for everything for a lazy
Good but needs better preset switching
by ipodtouchguru6 on 2016/01/31 18:06
I really like Boom 2 on the mac. This remote app is a nice bonus, I appreciate it being free. It all actually works really nicely. My main issue is when choosing for an EQ preset. When it's night time, I like to change my EQ to a "bass reducer" preset. The app makes it difficult to just select said preset. I have to scroll through all the other presets (and these presets toggle on while scrolling through) this means I pass the super bass booster presets and get booming bass when I'm trying to get the opposite. So now at night time I have to disturb the neighbors with some booming bass while I'm trying to tame the bass. Not a huge issue but I think the presets feature needs to be re-thought so you don't have to enable every preset in your list just to get to the one on the other side of the alphabet.
Doesn’t work
by PaulNorman on 2016/01/28 15:49
The app doesn’t connect with my wifi.
Awesome
by dalemichael on 2016/01/25 22:28
It's worth the price for just the remote that controls volume, skip a track, go back, select the new filters. Not to mention the great sound. You music on your Mac will come alive. Also well worth the upgrade price. Get this, you be happy you did.
Don’t Bother
by contessakitty on 2015/12/14 21:02
It doesn’t see my Boom 2 on my mac so it doesn’t work and getting prompts to update my boom 2 because there was no devices found was annoying.
It simply does not work - complete waste of space
by Richie3000 on 2015/12/01 22:03
What more can one say for an app that does nothing but take up valuable space without performing its sole function? Despite following the idiot-proof directions, the app simply does nothing. Fix the app.
Please fix remote
by SD92127 on 2015/11/30 01:28
I've used Boom for years. When I saw the updated App with the ability to use iPhone as remote control I upgraded. But as others mentioned, the remote control feature simply doesn't work. I'm on same wifi network but it says nothing connected. Please fix.
Icing on the cake

by johnny_sparks on 2015/10/17 23:19
Boom 2 is worth every penny. I use an iMac as my entertainment hub. This app is essential for movies and music. Now as for the remote all not working... It works fine and worked the first time I tried to set it up. I really have no idea why it wouldn't work for some people. Maybe they can't follow instructions on their phone and computer? Seriously, some people get confused easily. And these people shouldn't review apps that work because of their inability to set up a simple app.
It works

No easy system-wide control
by MABIUS on 2015/09/24 02:12
There doesn’t appear to be a simple system-wide volume control like in the previous version. I have to select a file to boost. I want to just amplify the volume overall...

What a great app
by Jasonofoc on 2015/09/04 17:49
I'm writing this for the Boom 2 app for my Mac Book Pro as I'm unable to write a review from the App Store program on my laptop. Anyway, awesome app. I've been streaming videos on Netflix, YouTube and Amazon for years and most of the time the volume is painfully low, even with it turned up all the way on both the laptop and the web browser, to the point where I can't watch it (unless I use headphones or external speakers, which I don't want to do - who wants to lug around cumbersome speakers and wires with their laptop?) I was even considering getting a cheap pc laptop just for watching movies. However this app fixed the problem instantly and now I can watch anything and not have to worry about the volume. So grateful and thanks so much for this great app!
Just Amazing
by CMaderaTM on 2015/07/14 16:58
Hands down the 1st Mac app o ever bought was Boom v1. I am glad to see how far you guys have come with such app. Simple can't state how well this app has worked. Glad to see I can also use my iPhone 6 Plus to control the new Boom 2
Version 1... Not perfect
by Orion_JJ on 2015/06/26 04:54
I've been waiting for this app, but... Fix the connection problem, add a Spotify control once that is done... Perfecto!
I can only hit refresh so many times
by LITERALLY NEVER WORKS on 2015/06/11 20:59
The app literally never connects to Boom on my Mac and in a miracle it does, the connection times out as soon as my cell's screen begins to dim. Please just wait to release apps until they are tested and prove to work more at least 90% of the time.
FLIPPIN LOVE IT!

Need version for iPhone.
by Hteethsweeper on 2015/06/05 00:48
Disappointed. Was hoping we finally got a version for iPhone. Huge let down.
Released too soon
by AMT11222 on 2015/06/04 18:24
This dev LOVES releasing things before he ought to, compound that with tremendously horrible customer service if you rub him the wrong way and you’re going to find upset customers. So yeah, it’s buggy. Oh well, he’ll get that fixed ASAP, for certain. What’s more, I can’t find a single time when I think I would ever use this. I mean, I want to think I would, but I even already deleted it. I’m glad the dev is at least trying some things after a spectacular money grab with his wonky policies that I want to assume are somehow lost in translation. More importantly, at least he can’t troll twitter and develop at the same time. : /
Great!!!
by marp04 on 2015/06/04 16:44

Like the idea, needs a little work
by curtisthefox on 2015/06/03 20:30
I totally understand that this is the very first release of this app, so I don't expect it to work perfect. My main issue is that it doesn't stay connected in the background. As soon as the phone is locked, or the app isn't in the foreground, it disconnects from the computer. I'm not sure if this is an issue on the phone or the computer, but I'm guessing it's the phone since multitasking is more of an issue there. Hopefully this issue gets resolved, but overall, I would rather use this than Apple's default remote app.
Love it works great

Disappointed. Was hoping we finally got a version for iPhone. Huge let down.
Confusing

GREAT GREAT APP. EASY TO USE.
It is how apps should work - automatically!

I expected a real hassle just syncing the iPhone app to my macbook; but it found it by itself. that was awesome, as is the entire app system. boom 2 is worth $14.99.
