Summary: There are a lot of mixed reviews on here about this dock. After much research and reading different opinions on which speaker/dock would be best for my iPhone5 I sprung for this one. I am glad I did. The sound is pretty impressive and I have no issues with the audio aspect of it. I used the alarm once and didn't have any issues. The app for ios is nothing too impressive. I downloaded it just to try it out, but ended up deleting it anyways - nothing big.
