    Feel like this will take a while to catch on but by the middle of the season it will be very cool.
    Speaking of it taking a while to catch on, I downloaded the app and it doesn't show cyclone lights in the drop down menu and I have no updates available on how to make that show up.

    What's the deal?

    Those that had it Friday night it looked pretty cool. Essentially the light flashes are synched with beat of the pregame intro music.

    If the entire arena participates, that’ll look sweet.

    Calling it right now - someone's going to have a seizure at an ISU game in the future.

    But yeah, that has the potential to look cool.

    I feel like if theyre going to start doing app-based things that require data connection they might want to get either some signal repeaters or some in-arena wifi going

    I’m pretty sure it’s flashing based on sound it’s not actually synced to anything. The app requests for permission to use the microphone, and it flashes on the heavy bass beats in the video

    Is this in response to the light show we put on against West Virginia? “Cyclones Light It Up” has a good marketing ring to it.

    I know who you are and where you live. I can hunt you down and kick you in the shins!

    But you're probably right...

    Okay - he says I didn't give you all the facts. He downloaded the app, but the light feature is not on it. I dunno. I didn't try it.

    That menu does scroll so the option might be off the bottom of the screen.

    I, along with a few other people in the student section, also didn't have the lights option on the app. I wonder if it's an iPhone/Android problem. My friend had it work on her iPhone, I have an Android.

    I use an iPhone, and the “Lights” option wasn’t on my app either, and an update didn’t show in the App Store. But when I chose to Open from the App Store, it did like a quick update, then the “Lights” option showed up in the app. I used it during the Mizzou game and it worked great.
