    It works but unnecessary payment to do what a iphone3 did

    The cable works with all my docks, and you can still control the phone from the dock also (play, pause, next, previous etc)! I appreciate its a clever bit of kit and not just a lead, but just seems unnecessarily expensive to get back to doing what past iPhones did! A necessary expense but does the job well!

    Does the job but....

    I bought the adapter version of this because I like to listen to the radio when I am running. Sadly Apple do not provide a radio which can be used when on the move so I have had to buy an accessory made by Roberts which is just the job. Sadly again these are no longer made and the fitting on my iPhone 5 is different from the iPhone 4. I bought the adaptor to convert the fitting but, like everyone else found that the case got in the way. I have therefore bought the wire which does the job and put this one on my dock. I am now running with , what feels like, metres of wire which is really really annoying.
    Why can't the radio be integrated like it is on my daughter's Samsung. This does do the job, but I should not have had to buy such an expensive adaptor. Overall I have spent nigh on £100 to get a decent radio

    I have a Roland keyboard and I want to use it to input to Garage Band, not realising it has a USB midi port I used the 5 pin ones with an adapter to get to a 30pin and then via the apple 30pin to lightning. Well guess what -it worked, but only with IRig's app not GB. Apple have suggested trying the camera adapter, but reading here it doesn't look too promising. I think I'll contact Roland, May have a better chance of success?
