App Reviews

  • Customer experience IS the brand. Good riddance.

    By Beantown-G
    In today’s market, customer experience *is* the brand, even more than features or price. Sony used to know that. I bought the STR-DN1050 because I could control it with my phone. A quick “Update all” apps and SongPal was gone. I have a degree in computer science and know it’s not rocket science to support multiple protocols for backward compatibility, *especially* for an army of loyal customers. Sony, you think this is going to push us to purchase new receivers? LOL. Your influence in consumer electronics is shrinking and this is just another example of the acceleration downward. I’m exhausted being screwed by companies selling products that don’t work as marketed - or sneaky/aggressive product support decisions. Good riddance.
  • Decent enough except...

    By Redrexx
    I've used this app for a while now and so far, I haven't had much issues with it. Tho for a short while, the Bluetooth kept disconnecting. They've seem to work out that kink. I like how I'm able to control everything. If there's anything left to add, is that there should be volume control in every page. It's a bit annoying having to back out all the way to adjust volume after making speak level changes. I know there's a shortcut button to home page a more accesible volume would be nice.
  • I can help with the privacy issue.

    By SnowMyst630
    I had the same problem at first with not being able to check mark the privacy button. But since I have had allot of Sony products and software, I knew that they expect you to read the entire privacy policy in total. Even after I read it in total, I still had to give it several more tries before it worked. They must have a timer on it. I hope this helps everyone to get the app up and running. Thanks
  • Please enable access to “Display” button data for ST5000

    By Danny_Bob
    It would be great if this app would show the “Display” button info (LPCM, number of audio channels, kHz, etc.) for the ST5000. When viewing content in 4K with Enhanced format HDMI, the Display and Options buttons don’t work because the soundbar is unable to overlay the on screen display while in that mode. Getting access to that information in this app would be a great workaround. I currently use this app to adjust the a/v sync settings while in Enhanced format HDMI because that setting is not accessible from the soundbar itself unless I switch back to Standard format HDMI.
  • Works nice

    By Adrian2003
    Using app with an srs-xb30. It's works great. Lights and strobe can be easily adjusted. Also like that the equalizer can be adjusted with the app because the speaker had the bass just a bit too high, but adjusting with the app made the sound even better. Would give a 5 star review but I don't like having to pair everytime I'm trying to use the speaker. It would be nice if they put a battery display on the app so I don't have to push the button on the speaker to check the remaining battery charge.
  • Can’t check the privacy policy box to even use the app!

    By Truckmanwithhearingaid
    IPhone X cannot get past the privacy policy. Read it, re read it, read it again. Still can’t check the little box to allow me into the app. I’m a private person so I get the need for a privacy policy. I have privacy policy for using the restroom thought it isn’t written so I don’t have a check box, but if I did have a written policy, my check box WOULD WORK! But the door would still be locked to I guess this analogy doesn’t really fit this situation. All I’m saying is that rather than sitting here writing a crappy review (get it?) I COULD be using my SONY app. Please fix this Sh!t.
  • An app that tells you how to use Bluetooth

    By supergirl2000
    I know how to Bluetooth connect to devices. My soundbar linked for years then suddenly stopped working. My phone Bluetooth list claims it’s not turned on or within range. The soundbar is both on in range and set to Bluetooth as it was for years. I’ve tried reinstalling, updating, rebooting. Nothing fixes it. I’m so annoyed at this super lame app for not addressing such issues or aid in troubleshooting. Devices that don’t sync suddenly wreak of cash grab by either Sony or Apple. Like I should go buy a new soundbar or new phone when both are still totally fine.
  • Good for what I need it to do!

    By mji71
    I have no functional issues with this app. It has met my expectations. However, I would like the ability to choose LED colors of my liking. I prefer the solid LED (what Sony has labeled as Calm) vs. flashing LED selections. For example, I would prefer to illuminate a solid dark blue, but the nearest would be Cyan (too bright). Please Sony give us more options with LED colors!!!
  • Having app issues

    By KayDee109
    I have a Sony X90 speaker, and it works well! As soon as I connect to the speaker it tells me to get the app! Cool. I like that I can control the lights and all but I can get the app to load all the songs I have!!! I have Apple Music so there’s no need to buy every album anymore. But I can get the songs to work through the app. It does not bother me but when you download the app it says the music will be play better through the app, but mostly every song says it can’t be played. 🤷🏾‍♂️ no use to have the app if it’s going to be little this.
  • Good music player

    By Thichbanla
    The app works well as a stand alone music player. I often listen to tracks not listed on iTunes/Spotify, and the grouping and searching for those tracks were very messy and insufficient in stock music app. The grouping of songs and albums in this app is far more better than that in the stock music app.
