I'm impressed with the app so far but having read the other reviews I can see you have many upgrades to go before you are able to utilize the full capacity of the Widex hearing aids. I would like to be informed about the future changes to bring it up to the communications standards of the media spectrum of today's capabilities.
Bluetooth disconnects a lot. Takes forever to re-establish the link. I often have to shut off Bluetooth and turn it back on again for the hearing aides to be recognized. I spent big $$$ on the hearing aides and like my Android phone.....they need to fix the app.
Volume and next program features rarely work. Frustrating. For such an expensive product it would be nice to put a little work into the Android app, which should be able to do so much more.
DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT BAD BAD app. I regret buying this product. Given the very high price of the device I am seriously disappointed. yes it streams music but IN MONO. HORRID Bluetooth implemtation means clipping of sounds. Can't be used with Google Maps When setting sound direction (front, universal etc), the direction will not hold for more than a few seconds or minutes especially in a noisy environment. The product is a good idea but the software is truly awful in its current state. Their BEYOND app gives me better options for controlling the hearing aides BUT NEITHER WILL WORK if you install both. The product is so bad that I have my $20 motorola ear slug in one ear and my hearing aid in the other.
It keeps switching between Universal and DEX. Very annoying you need to stay with one program while you were using it. It changes six or seven times an hour and it says it in your ear it's annoying please fix
I like the polite way that Joe Jett on June 27, 2016 has expressed on this Widex app. Removing the polite part Widex, here in the world of telecommunication just say, NO, we at Widex do not want you to hear anything other than the phone call, expressly the phone call By the phone app. You are allowed to listen to music and calls from the phone only. When I look at apps like; Enhanced SMS & Caller ID+, and LG BT Reader Plus. I am saddened to find that I have spent so much money on Widex, and this does not let me hear a simple notification coming from Hangouts, Wire, Email or Facebook. And if I want to make calls with my Google phone number, or voice calls via social media apps I have to become a wizard to use COM-DEX. Someone here already said that this app serves only to know about the battery on the COM-DEX, no matter, I will charge this every day, volume and programs I can control them from my RC-DEX or the buttons on the hearing aid. I'm uninstalling this app and I'm actively looking for another brand of hearing aid that plays nice with Android. I hope they realize that not only the hearing aid should work well, now it is necessary to play nice with the other Android apps
