I expect every visitor here has already known what Populele is right now. There's a mode called "Dazzle Mode", could light up your Populele while you're playing songs. Since it's a function inside our Populele app and we're currently only allow logged-in users to use the app, it is not possible to enjoy the "Dazzle Mode" offline.
