Sonobit - Remote for Sonos App Description

”... a must for virtually every owner of a Sonos audio system” (iTopnews) Sonobit is the most feature-packed remote widget for Sonos on the market. Sonobit has been rewritten to take full advantage of the latest features in iOS 11 and watchOS 4. You don’t even have to unlock your iPhone/iPad to access advanced features like group control and ”Pause All”. Just swipe to the right on the Home screen or the Lock screen of your iPhone/iPad to access the widget. Sonobit also runs on your Apple Watch! It gives you the full set of media buttons and shows the currently playing song and album art. List of features: - Either run Sonobit as a collapsed, minimalistic widget or an expanded, full-featured widget - Control groups of speakers - Pause all your Sonos speakers with just one tap - Toggle repeat and shuffle - Play/pause, skip tracks, adjust volume and mute - View the currently playing song and album art - Hold your finger on volume down to mute and on volume up to unmute in collapsed state - Launch the official Sonos app by tapping the album art - VoiceOver - Available in English, German and Swedish No setup is required! Sonobit automatically detects all your Sonos devices instantly. That also means that if you’re on a friend’s Wi-Fi, Sonobit will automatically reconfigure itself and connect to your friend’s Sonos system! Don’t know how to add a widget like Sonobit? - It’s a piece of cake: 1. Swipe down from the top of the screen and then right. 2. Scroll down and tap Edit. 3. Tap the plus sign next to the Sonobit widget. 4. Pull it to the top of the list for easy access. ========= REVIEWS ========= Caschys Blog: 5 STARS (http://stadt-bremerhaven.de/sonobit-sonos-per-widget-unter-ios-steuern/) iTopnews: 8.3/10 - ”… a must for virtually every owner of a Sonos audio system” (http://www.itopnews.de/2016/01/sonobit-remote-app-fuer-sonos-mit-grossem-update/) Multiroomlautsprecher.de: "... sie ist jeden Cent wert [it's worth every penny]!" (http://www.multiroomlautsprecher.de/sonos-mit-gesperrtem-iphone-bedienen/) appgefahren.de: "Wer ein Sonos-Lautsprecher-System sein Eigen nennt, sollte sich diese praktische Möglichkeit, die Musik zu steuern, durchaus einmal genauer ansehen." (http://www.appgefahren.de/sonobit-multiroom-lautsprecher-auch-mit-gesperrtem-iphone-per-widget-oder-watch-steuern-159308.html) ========= SUPPORT ========= In rare cases, Sonobit is unable to automatically discover Sonos devices. This may be because UPnP is not enabled on your router. If Sonobit says "No Sonos system available", you can manually add your Sonos devices. Start the Settings app on your iPhone/iPad and tap Sonobit. Follow the instructions there for adding your devices and finish by launching the Sonobit iPhone/iPad app once for the settings to take effect. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need assistance or have any questions or comments. We always enjoy hearing from you! Not affiliated with Sonos, Inc.

Sonobit - Remote for Sonos App Reviews

  • When it works, pretty good but...

    By Donkeysmarts
    Like this app and use it quite a bit although it's quite limited in what it can do. When it works, however, it's a true convenience to have on the watch - very handy. My biggest gripe is that too often it stops working and the only fix I've found is to delete it entirely and then re-install it. Also, I see there's been no update for a year?? Question for developer: Why no update in so long and are you going to be upgrading the app soon w/more features or are you about to do away with it altogether - hence why no updates? Thanks and again, folks on the fence about this app, it's very worth having for the times it works for you in spite of it only offering the most basic of Sonos features. Hope the answer to my developer's question above is that the app will be upgraded soon and that it has a long life ahead! :-))
  • Excellent App

    Just downloaded it and love it! One of my favorite apps! It works exactly as advertised.. great job developer!
  • AirPlay???

    Please add AirPlay to the video playback so I can mirror the video on my TV through my Apple TV. I’d rather watch the videos on my big screen TV while using this app. Is that possible? Please let me know. I’m loving being able to control things this way. I just don’t have the money to by a Sonos Beam set up right now. I have one Sonos Play:1 speaker and that’s it other than the TV speakers inside the Sony Bravia KDL 32” TV. If I can AirPlay the YouTube videos through my Apple TV station, I’ll give it 5 stars for sure!
  • thank you for including accessibility!

    As a totally blind individual, I must say thank you for firstly being aware of people like myself using your apps. Secondly for including all necessary things to make the app VoiceOver friendly. Finally for stating right in the app's description that VoiceOver support is included. I'm super impressed! And to be able to use my watch with this... Are you kidding? Absolutely awesome! 5 stars to you all the way!
  • Love the app.

    Love the app. Simple and easy to ruse, but makes my listening life much easier. The only thing I would change is to add thumbs up & thumbs down button for when listening to streaming services. Once it has that, I give it 10 stars!
  • A must-have for Sonos users!!!

    I just got Sonobit based on all the positive reviews and the need to control my Sonos from my Apple Watch - I couldn’t live without this app and the support team is fantastic - thanks for the great app!!!
  • SONOS MUST HAVE APP

    By Matt's world
    If you have a Sonos system and an iPhone, especially if you have an iwatch, you need this app. For $2.99 your life will be better. Stop reading the reviews...just buy it already.
  • Excellent app for controlling Sonos system

    By Atlasaxis
    I bought this app primarily to control my So is system from my Apple Watch and have been very pleased with it. I also had a question for the developer and they were very quick to respond. If you’re looking for a more convenient way to control your sonos speakers this is a much better option than using the Sonos app to do so, especially if you have an Apple Watch.
  • No Apple Watch app

    Initially, the watch app didn’t appear on my iPhone or Apple Watch. I contacted the developer who responded immediately and told me to reinstall and reboot. I should have known to do this. Works great! I never used widgets before but this app has shown me how handy they are.
  • Didn’t work

    Just got an Apple Watch 4 and this would connect to the Sonos. Went to the phone app for more info and it didn’t help. Pretty disappointed, $3 down the drain.
