Lightbow

Peter Rapp
Imagine the App Store or Music Store, but for LIGHT. After six years and 100+ updates, Lightbow continues to provide the highest quality & quantity of stunning light shows, plus the most powerful editor to create your own! Enjoy hundreds of lighting and sound environments at your fingertips...

(Full Editor included with your purchase, dozens of designer collections other than "Starter Pack" available as in-app purchases)

Take full advantage of Philips hue, LIFX, Nanoleaf, & Belkin WeMo*, or control them all at once with presets, animations, groups, triggers, transitions, and more! From theater productions, to mood lighting in a restaurant, to everyday home living, Lightbow has something for everybody!

* Lightbow is an independent 3rd party app, and not affiliated with the companies that make Philips hue, LIFX, WeMo, or Nanoleaf *

** Buy Lightbow for iPhone or iPad, then download on your Apple TV for free (or vice versa). See Lightbow's description on the Apple TV App Store for more details on current functionality. Check www.lightbow.net/hardware to see which features are supported in your specific setup. **

Presets

- Combine custom multi-step animation loops, static colors, or ON/OFF/Brightness commands for any sets of lights or groups. Activate them all with a single tap.
- Light animations even run in the background (when you close the app, or hit the sleep button)
- Share presets with others in your household on your local WiFi network—no emails or passwords necessary!
- Give each preset a transition, such as crossfade, flashbulb, or fading through a specific color.
- Randomization ranges offer interesting variations on colors each time you activate a preset.
- Organize your Presets into Collections for greater flexibility and scalability.

Triggers

- Activate any preset with Siri, countdown timers, alarms, events like opening/closing Lightbow, or even a shake of your phone.
- For hue tap owners, choose the colors and fade time that each button will trigger on your Philips lights.

Groups

- Put your Philips or LIFX hardware into groups to control sets of lights together.
- Group lights by room, function, or anything else. Lights can be in multiple groups!
- Set a color on different models of lighting hardware, and Lightbow will automatically calibrate that color to match up where possible.

Light Control

- From one simple screen, you can rename, reorder, and switch on or off any of your lights.
- Set the mood of a room with control over the hue, saturation, brightness, and color temperature of each bulb.
- Use your Belkin WeMo Outlet, LightSwitch, or Insight hardware to turn any electrical device on or off, not just lights!
- Enjoy your LIFX bulbs using the same familiar interface. Lightbow will continue to add support for new lighting hardware as it is released.

What's new in version 3.3.3
Lightbow has the most Halloween content of any lighting app!
- With the popularity of our "Trick or Treat?!" collection last year, we decided to double the number of costume-centric light+sound environments (available for in-app purchase) that you can use to psych up kids (and parents) before heading out to Halloween festivities! Enjoy all new presets like Vampire, Rubber Ducky, Swamp Creature, Fairy, Sailor, and more... Users who already bought the "Trick or Treat?!" in-app purchase get all the new presets for free. (Are you throwing a halloween party or just like getting into the spirit of things? Check out the dozens of presets in the "Haunted House" and "Halloween" collections as well!
- Added a half-dozen new color profiles for lightbulbs introduced since the last release.
- Fixed a few issues with toolbar heights and layout that popped up with the latest iOS versions.
