iRiS 2.0 - Visualizer Studio

As the developer my view of the app is a bit clouded I suppose, but I will try to be as honest as possible.

I feel that my app is something that has never been done before on the Xbox, and I think we did a really good job pulling it off. It is easy and fun to make your own visualizers. It is even more fun to connect to other users and see what kind of visualizers they have created. The toolset allows you to create a huge variety of different acting and looking visualizers.

As mentioned below, there is sometimes an issue will slow caching from a network library, as with XNA, reading some data from the network library causes the app and the Xbox to both slow down while reading the data. However, this step can be skipped, and it really only affects the performance of browsing through the media library. So if you just want to play random songs, there is no need to cache all your media.

Its because of that limitation with the XNA media library, that I am even giving my self 8 stars. But if you really enjoy listening to music on your 360, and enjoy visualizers and/or want to make your own, I recommend checking out the demo at the very least. Enjoy!

Iris 2.0 Visualizer Studio

I experienced a lot of issue with this app. First it wouldn't launch correctly, then once it did it took 10+ minutes to cache my networked music(it never really completed the caching correctly, it finished only to ask me to do it again). While streaming music the performance of my 360(mini blades) and the app itself became sluggish at best. Networked music library access and visualizers are already built into the 360 OS, I fail to see what the point of paying $5 to use what you already have.
