Ratings and Reviews
Simple enough, but
It does lack instructions but I found it easy enough to figure out by trial and error. It is basically another camera app that can talk to Lume cubes. Good for an off camera flash option for iPhone. Slow, though, your subject needs to be prepared to be in the light for about a full second. One nice thing is the ability to drive the cube(s) while setting exposure. What is sorely missing is access to iPhone X features like telephoto camera and portrait mode.
There is no walkthrough on how to do anything with this. You download it and it is just a camera app. No menu, no “how to connect”, just a camera app. If you press a button on the cube though it will prompt you to register the cube. Still not sure if I did that right. The auto populated field had a different number than my serial number but it never asked for the serial number so I guess that will be it? Who knows. They need to better control their introduction process. Remember, first impressions are big.
I liked the previous version better
The previous version had multiple flash options which worked for me since I am a night photographer. This version only has one flash option and it doesn’t even flash, the light just stays on. The strobe option is cool but it’s not useful to me at all. Please bring back different options for flash length.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
