Party Light – a Light Show in the Palm of Your Hand!
Nov 1, 2011 2:37 PM –
Party Light. Turn your phone into a hypnotic light machine. For those who love being the center of attention we’ve got you covered with Party Light! It’s the original light show app that turns your phone in to a multi-color strobe light! Party Light makes use of your phone’s internal accelerometer and microphone to pulse and mix various light effects based on sound and movement!
Don’t smoke, no lighter? Party Light has you covered at the concert. When you’re at the club or rave we’ve got you covered there too! Just turn on Party Light and it takes over – pulsing to the beat of the music – it’ll turn heads and creates a unique ambiance that makes you part of the experience! Party Light has seven multiple color effects and has a flashlight mode (more useful than you think) with more effects in the works! Party Light also has HeyZap integration so you can share you’re experiences with your friends on your Facebook page!
Price: Free, $0.99
Tested on: Droid Bionic

- Allows you to adjust the rate of the effects through the application!

Party Lights is an eclectic application which allows you to become the life of the party by giving you the power of a light show in the palm of your hand! Party Lights includes many different light show effects for parties including: Flash, Glow, Geometric, Rave, Sound Visuals, Strobe, Pulse, Night Light, Flash Light, LED Strobe, The Encore Lighter and more!
So exactly how does Party Lights work? It displays various light patterns on the touch screen of your Android smartphone. If you want Strobe Lights it displays the appropriate lighting on your smartphone’s screen. If you want Geometric Shapes it shows them on the screen of your smartphone with a huge selection of colors.
The application is laid out with one giant menu with push buttons for each of the effects. There are over 12 effects in the application and all of them will work on any Android device. To begin showing one of the various light show effects you just need to press the button of the effect you desire and it will begin. To stop playing the effect and to return to the main menu you just need to press the back button.
I tested out the various effects in a dark room and was not very impressed with the brightness of the colors projecting across the room. However, the crazy assortment of colors would look extremely cool at a rave, club or concert. Another interesting trick that can be used with this application is to plug your smartphone into your TV with a HDMI cable. Then the lightshow can be projected much more efficiently on a much larger screen!

This application would be useful to the frequent party goer or rave thrower. It allows you to create crazy light show effects right from the palm of your hand. However, if you don’t party often and aren’t easily amused by crazy colors then this application might not be for you.
Ease of Use:
This application was extremely easy to use. In order to select an option you merely needed to press the appropriate button and the correct content would be displayed on your screen. I was very pleased with how easy it was to navigate and use.
Unless you are a frequent partier this application is probably not one you would use often. It is only used for light shows and music visualization. Unless you frequently have need of those features you will not frequently use this application.
The interface was easy to use and well laid out. I don’t understand the inclusion of HeyZap or this application’s category on Android Market being under casual games. This game is not a game though it certainly can be fun to use. Since HeyZap is a service for gaming it should be removed and this product properly categorized.
On a more positive note I can say that I was pleased that I could adjust the speed of each light show effect. Although I would also like the option to change the colors of each effect displayed.
