Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
This app lets you control your Kick from your iOS device.
ONLY DOWNLOAD THIS APP IF YOU OWN A KICK LIGHT. This app is a remote control for the Kick Light and without one, you can't do much with the app.
You can adjust color and brightness of the Kick, or select a color temperature like Daylight, Tungsten etc to fit the ambient light.
The app also lets you control effects like Rainbow, Strobe effects and more on your Kick light.
What's New in Version 1.3
* Increased app and network stability
Lights have potential, but
Who ever writes the logic for this should be fired.
1- the app should see all kick lights. There should be an icon where you can adjust individual lights. This should be the only functionality of the app until you get that workif properly. No one wants a lightening effect if they can't use it anyway.
2- to get white light with out the awful app you must click 22 buttons. Twenty two.
3- when you turn the light off, to get the last setting (that you almost always want) you must click 2fraking2 buttons
4- the battery doesn't last through a 3 hour shoot.
5- the app is just awful. It's like they paid no attention to how someone should use this thing.
6- the documentation is embarrassing. Difficult with their printout, impossible with out. Yet it's just a light...shouldn't it be simple?
Pease hire a UX person and maybe you can make this product usable by professionals. Until then I have 500$ worth of unusable lights that advertise what they can't deliver.
Allow us to use without camera
I bought the light thinking I'd be able to simply control it via the iPhone. The app allows this but it forces the camera on at the same time, which I dont need or want!
Please include an option to use the iphone purely as a color selector, without the camera being on.
App update please!!!!
Make option to turn camera off most of us photographers don't use or need the camera as it runs down the phone battery!!! Needs better color controls these are too gimmicky!!! Let's get pro here !!!
