    Doesn't work with the Twinkly Gallery Effects

    Warning: the Twinkly Music Dongle does not work with the music effects in the Twinkly Gallery. After you install the Music Dongle you’ll find that none of the Effects with the Musical Notes symbol in the Gallery (e.g. picture of "Twister" actually use the dongle at all. Instead, the dongle has its own set of effects that it syncs the audio to (e.g. picture of VU meter) Incredibly Twinkly’s design seems to be that the Musical Effects in the Gallery only use your smartphone mic and only in “preview”, and the Music Dongle only uses its own set of effects which you can’t customize, edit, or preview. You can’t load any kind of effect playlist that uses audio sync into the Carousel feature, so if you wanted to automatically rotate through various effects using the Carousel for a party you can’t do this with any kind of audio sync capability because the smart phone mic only works in preview mode, not Carousel mode, and the Music Dongle doesn’t work with any of the effects in the Carousel either. I reached out to Twinkly technical support to try to understand what my configuration mistake was, but alas they informed me that this was the actual system design, and that this obvious usage model isn’t supported. Thus the dongle is of very limited utility, you’ll be limited to one effect per party, or you’ll forever be forced to access your smart phone repeatedly to switch patterns which is sure to get annoying almost immediately.

    Very easy to set up! Lights dancing with the music.

    Not worth the money

    Information on how to use it could be a lot better. Music has to be loud for it to work properly. Comes with no wall power source only USB cord. Not all Music will play with lights, and you have to keep the app open for it to work continuously. Thinking of returning it. To many cons and not enough pros.
