ION is a light show for your desk, dorm room, or living room. It responds to music, can be controlled via your phone, and brightens your day. This is the iOS remote control app for ION.

ION's magic comes from 40 multicolor LEDs. Each of which can display a color independent of the others. Around these LEDs is a durable acrylic tube, which contains light diffusing film. This smooths out the harshness of the light, while also allowing for the mixing of colors.

ION loves music as much as you do. With a built in microphone, ION syncs up with your favorite songs and puts on a show. In music mode, each song you play has a unique “color profile” generated on the fly.

Good functionality; a few bugs

App has good functionality but there are some issues with the current version, hence the three star review.

The good: great control over most functions of the lamp and so many options for brightness, color, and patterns of the LEDs.

The bad: the app and lamp lose connection every time the app is left for a few minutes and the app does not automatically reconnect with the lamp when it's opened back up; no control over distance for the leash mode (which I can't even get to work); and lastly, the color wheels to choose colors are very small.

Otherwise a good start for the app and a great physical lamp.

Phone breaking app

Not only does the app freeze, it won't close and does strange things to my phone when open. The lamps themselves are great but the app is a core part and useless
