App Review of Sonos
March 10, 2011
Need to buy built in speakers
I chose the app Sonos because I have it and I think others should get it. Sonos is a music system which plays music through out your house. To control it, you can use your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad to choose what you want to listen to.
When you open up the app, you get to the main menu, shown above. You get to choose from either the music library, radio, Pandora radio, or a free trial of rhapsody.
The first section of this app is the music library. In your music library you can listen to any of the songs you own. When you open it up, it is easy to switch from song to song, and you can find your songs by albums, artist, tracks, genres, or composers. In your music library, you can also make play lists, so if you like certain songs, you can put them in a play list. This section is easy to use, but you need to download the songs into the system first.
The next option Sonos has is the radio. Personally, this is one of my favorite features because it gives you all radio stations that you could imagine. For music, there is pop, country, rock, hip hop, classical, R&B, and many other types of music which you can search by simply pressing the search button in this section. Also, you can listen in to talk shows, sports stations, and news stations, as shown in the pictures above. The radio reception is very good too, making it an amazing feature.
One of the final options which Sonos gives you is Pandora radio (picture above). Pandora is an Internet radio which allows you to listen to the type of music you like. It is really easy to use because all you have to do is type in one of your favorite artists, songs, of type of music and it will get you things related to it. This part is helpful, but Pandora doesn’t always
Review of cost
This app is free, but you need to have Sonos speakers built into your house. The pricing of the speakers varies, but the cost of it is defiantly worth it if you really like music, and would listen to off of it a lot.
Overall, I really enjoy the app Sonos and I would recommend it to anyone with a family or for people who like music. If the company wanted to improve this app, I think that they should make it be able to be activated from your computers, and be able to record songs which you heard on the radio. However, it is not necessary to make changes, and the app will still be stunning without it.
