Summary: I purchased this item as a christmas gift and my son just started to use it. He put his iphone in the dock and had on pandora radio , the radio kept shutting off. We took the iphone out of the dock thinking that maybe pandora radio was the problem but pandora radio played while it was out of the dock w/out shutting off once we put it back in the dock it shut off. as far as it being an alarm clock I don't know how that works . there is no way to set an alarm on that dock.
Summary: I bought this as a Christmas present for my Grandson. I have one exactly the same. I am very pleased with the product, delivery was as expected. I had a question to ask abolut the dock and it was answered promptly. It is a great dock and I am very pleased with the sale.
Summary: We have had 2 of these, they look quite good but the first item never charged the iPod and the second one switches the iPod off each morning just before the alarm goes off and we have tried it on 2 or 3 devices.
Summary: This device is an absolute pain. It does not work with the iPhone 4 or 4S... The App is glitchy. It doesn't always charge when turned sideways. This was a big disappointment. Be careful if you want to use it as an alarm, sometimes the dock does not charge, then the App kills the battery on the phone and you will wake up late.
Summary: A docking station is NO GOOD at all if it does not charge the iPod !!! This device might look good but I question the practicality of the design because: - when docking the iPod the fit is awkward (you need both hands) - you have to be very careful not to tip the device over when you 'touch' the iPod - adjusting the volume is IMPOSSIBLE with one hand because the device falls over.
Summary: To summarise this product: Pro's: - Sound quality is very good, and isnt two dimentional, it sounds good from wherever you are with regard to the product. - It is loud for its size. - Voice which reads out song names is good. Negatives: - The purpose made app is awful, constantly crashes, doesnt load radio stations, is clunky and drains battery rapidly. - The supposedly amazing design..
Summary: As the title states, this review is made without the use of the free apps (alarm cock / internet radio) that is designed for this docking station as I only have a very old (5th Gen w/vid) ipod, which serves it's purpose - I'm not going to spend over £200 every time there is some tiny new feature.
