  1. Login on iPhone app

    Just wondering, is it possible to login on the iPhone app so that when I login on my PC, I can still see all the diagrams which I created on iPhone?
    At the moment, I don't think I need to login on the Iphone app, so my diagrams are only accessible on my phone.

    And is there a way I can import from my Iphone into my account after I have created one?
    Thank you!

    • Identifiable info on each element

      Each element (ex. Umbrella) should say if it is a silver, gold, white umbrella, instead of just "bounce".

      Or if I put an octabank in the layout it needs to say "on boom" if it is not usually on a regular stand.

      • Add saving diagrams options!

        Sylights is an awesome application for keeping track of all the lighting setups that we as photographers routinely use. Nevertheless, I think it could be a lot more useful for not only saving our own setups, but for saving also other photographers' lighting setups. I constantly research and see what other photographers do with their gear and I wish I could add those lighting setups to my collection and keep'em forever for future reference.

        • Can you make a file format that we can share with others in the app?

          I would like to have a file I could email an another photographer and let them open it on their iPad and make changes and send it back to me.

            Hey
            I'm using your app on my iPhone and on my iPad, but i'm missing a function to synchronize these two (or i haven't found it yet).
            If there is no one: what is about a synch over dropbox or iCloud?

              • Create Windows Phone version

                Would love to be able to use this on my phone when I'm on location.

                I realize where this probably sits on your priority list, but I thought it'd be nice to get it on there anyway.

                  • Please add a green screen backdrop, s'il vous plait.

                    Also, show the videographers some love. We are using your fine app as well. Green screen backdrop and a video camera icon are my requests. Superb app!

                    • Ability to create and add own objects

                      Much like Microsoft Visio, I would like to be able to add templates for additional objects I and others create. There are so many items I would like to add to a scene, like props, cars, couches, etc. I would pay $15 for a full featured app like this. By the way, the app you created for the iPad is about 70% there, a few tweaks and you could be earning money with it.

                                    Hey guys,
                                    I can't login to sylights, I'm pretty sure my password is correct but it doesn't let me in... I tried to send my password to my email address but for some reasons the system says he can't send it...
                                    My account is on this address : r....@gmail.com

                                    Oh ! There is also this advert which pop up just in front of the login page, very annoying.

                                    Hope you can fix this issues asap, cheers
                                    Régis

                                      • 45 degrees ...

                                        I have been using my strip lights set to different angles. Not just vertical or horizontal. A striplight set on a 45 degree angel would be very cool
