Ready to light up your night? Light DJ - the world’s #1 light show app - is here to take your party to the next level. Connects to Philips Hue, LIFX, and Nanoleaf Aurora to interact with your lights in tons of different ways. Use the app as a personal music visualizer, or program the app to create your own customized light shows.

*** THIS IS THE FULLY-UNLOCKED VERSION. To try it for FREE, search for LIGHT DJ in the App Store! ***

MUSIC VISUALIZER: Create the ultimate music listening experience. The app listens to your music and changes the effects based on the mood of the song. Lights get active during intense parts of a song and flowy with softer melodies and magically change colors at just the right moment, or customize your own. (Best with 4 or more lights.)

STROBE MAKER: Strobe your lights with different types of effects with the Matrix Strobe Maker. Interact with your lights using multitouch and 3D Touch technology included on iPhone 6s and newer.

BEAT-SYNCED EFFECTS: Use the SceneMaker Effects controller to program your lights with up to 23 different effects that can be customized with your favorite colors. Just turn on your lights and let the SceneMaker run all night long.

EFFECT MAKER: Create your own looping special effects with our powerful Effects Maker. Pre-program your bulbs to make light shows that fit your play environment. (Hue & LIFX only)

SHARE EFFECTS & SHEETS: Share your custom-made effects and effect sheets with your friends using AirDrop.

IPAD VERSION: The iPad app offers a DJ Controller-inspired design for ultimate live-performance lighting control. Configurable sheets allow you to setup your effects and colors in advance, and the push-button interface lets making rapid changes easy. The iPad version is the preferred platform for home DJs around the world.

AUTOMATIC BEAT DETECTION: Sync effects to your music using your iPhone or iPad’s built-in microphone.

TEMPO CONTROLS: Control the speed of your lights with precision using manual tempo controls. Easily go double-time or half-time at the press of a button.

LIGHT GROUPS & ORDERING: Your lights, your way. Include only the lights you want to use. Assign your lights an order to create lighting effects that rivals custom-built installations.

ABLETON LINK & MIDI SUPPORT: Seamlessly sync tempo with other devices using Ableton Link or MIDI Clock Sync. Control effects by sending Program Change codes over MIDI.

Great app for Hue Lights

Kevin from PA

For effects still my go to app. It really allows you to show off the Hue Lights to friends - set the effect and colors (strobe) and have it linked to the music in the house via the mic on the iphone or iPad and watch the lights change colors to the music - like a club. The interface is getting a bit better still pretty busy but once you get the hang of what you need - it is easy to use.

Good job - fun app.



Love the idea. Just wish it didn’t freeze when you try and configure.

Crashes EVERY SINGLE TIME now...


This app is now useless. Crashes seconds after opening it. Tried deleting and reinstalling, same thing. $10 down the drain.

Developer Response

Hello, sorry for the late reply but let me know if this is still an issue. Should have been fixed in 5.3.2. Email me at if it's still not working and I will fix it.
