Speaker is great, but the app... not so much.
I've had zero issues with this app. This is a smart speaker and not just a regular BT speaker which I think confuses people. If you want to use it as BT speaker you have to activate that mode, otherwise this speaker acts as a seperate device that you can control with Alexa(with the touch button only) which out of the box was extremely accurate. The app allows you to operate the speaker in network mode without relying on Alexa which cant do all the functions. Overall, take time to understand that this is a a smart speaker and not a BT speaker, and you'll have a great time. I've been using my Riff non stop for almost 4 days now and have not had a single issue.
Occasionally the speaker just forgets the network and requires re installation. Took me a long time to realize that a router reboot is always necessary when reinstalling the speaker. Speaker sounds good. The volume spectrum really needs to be shifted to lower volumes, for a large space, I only use the lower 10% of the volume bar, which makes a pain to use for quiet listening....
Tried to make too many things in one unit. Multi unit speakers, Alexa Unit, etc. Many things aren't compatible like scheduling etc. Speakers aren't even moderate. Voice commands take approximately half the time if understood at all. Low price point. It's like trying to make a car-boat-quadcopter-airplane instead four times as expensive four times cheaper. Failed in all aspects. Returned two units, not worth it.
I love the concept, and it works great, but I can't make playlists or import playlists from music that is on my phone. That was the whole reason I purchased this unit.
Returning my riff speaker. Lot of trouble to listen to music
Fixed some bugs.
