I really want to love this app and the sheer level of control it gives you over the light show. However, it has recently broken in functionality, being completely unresponsive to local songs added on Spotify that had worked literally the last time. Which is a shame, because all of a sudden one of my favorite songs will come on, but then the lights will stop. I would also suggest adding some form of on-screen metronome for setting up delay.

Hi Connor, unfortunately local songs added to Spotify never worked with iLightShow and can't be supported. I'll see if I can add a workaround. Feel free to contact me if you have any question.

I've been using the Hue Sync app for desktop and have really been enjoying it. I wanted to find an equivalent app for my Android device and this app was exactly what I was looking for. It was the only one I could find that syncs with Spotify without having to use the device's microphone. I use it when listening to my bluetooth headphones and it's awesome! The free version only lets you use one light and is mostly just a way to test out the app to see if you like it. Upgrading to the full version was definitely worth it for me. It offers a lot of customizeability with the light colors and effects. It even lets you set a delay if you feel that the sync is slightly off. I recommend this to anyone looking for a mobile version of the Hue Sync app.

Really enjoy the app a lot! A really useful feature would be to be able to tap your screen in rhythm with the music in order to help calibrate the delay. The delay is a nice feature to have to make sure everything stays in sync, but it is a little difficult to set up manually and I find that it often needs adjustments so it would be nice if they were easier 😊
