Updated to version 1.6 today and I'm really impressed with the progress this app has made. New effects, lots of improvements, and better bluetooth stability. Additionally, it seems as though my issue with presets being renamed was an amp firmware issue, not one with the app (needed to do a force update to the amp). Now using the app is preferable to making changes on the amp itself. After a rough start, the amp and app are, for me at least, delivering on the promises made back in May. 4 stars for now because the app does occasionally hang when switching presets, but otherwise excellent work.
Not impressed with it. At first it was good having everything on your phone but not it has started replacing the names of the modes with other names. So now i have 3 of the same name but they all sound different and i have np idea what it is supposed to be. Not using the app anymore.
Just disappointment is all I can say. If you have an apple phone it seems you will not have any issue connecting the app to the amp. If on the other hand you have an android phone well you only need to look at the comments to see the result. Like others have said already my phone can connect to the amp via Bluetooth but the app itself can't. Considering that this app is quite a major part of the functionality of the amp I would say its very disappointing to say the least. I have been unable to connect once after following all their instructions. I hope it can be rectified because it would be amazing if it would just connect.
If you are in the Create Setlist and try scrolling up or down on the scroll knob of the amp occasionally some of the tone names become renamed to the adjacent tone (although the original tone remains the same). Very annoying!! Please sort Fender in the next update!!
So, after a couple weeks of disappointment when I first bought it, I am totally sold on this new line. I purchased the GT40 in early July and have watched Fender smooth the bumps right out, and increase it's capabilities to no small degree. I don't think they’re done quite yet.....and I look forward to every firmware revision to the amp, as well as app upgrades to Fender Tone . Upped the enty a couple weeks back and invested 80 bucks in the MGT4 footswitch...what a hoot that option is. Go for it, man ! Don't think you'll be disappointed....
This app will not connect to my amp. Although the amp connect to my phones player for music, so if there was a - 5 star or more that's what it would get from me. If it would work it would be a great tool with the amp.
