Ok app, and to be fair, would maybe look better if I had 2-4 lights all next to each other instead of just 2 in neighboring rooms. Flickering feels a little predictable/not very random. Wish you could control how much the brightness changes because I think the candle would look better if the intensity didn't vary quite as much.

Thanks for the feedback! The flicker effect runs at a random interval and brightness for each light independently. The Lava mode has the slowest flicker rate and the Campfire mode has the fastest, but you can override the default Flicker Rate under Settings. Please try changing it to Glow. Contact me at for help.

This is a pretty solid app so far. I have not tested it in full with all the different functions though but it sets the Halloween mood I seek outside at night so Kudos on that. One thing I would suggest right now is to change the persistent notification icon from a solid filled square to a flame outline or something cooler with better definition of what it is.

Candle effect is spot on across my whole house. I expect the reviews are if you only have a few which could feel a bit whack. Would be good to have better clarity over room control. It turned everything on without me realising when I first used it. Ps firework effect is awesome. Well done!
