Ratings and Reviews
This was definitely worth the price of admission. Set up was flawless and all 11 of my lights were instantly recognized. I hope future versions will allow the user to re-order them (as in the wemo app) and ideally group them together per function (I would ideally like the ability to turn four or six off at once, but set their colors individually). I’m grateful there is no dock icon.
If you like controlling stuff from your computer, rather than having to reach for an iOS device or open a web page, this is a great menu bar applet to get. I appreciate the simple interface.
Great first release
Finally an app that works reliably and allows for all functions from the menu bar: power, color and brightness without having to open a separate app window. Connection to Hue Bridge went very smoothly. The four stars instead of five are based on a couple missing features. If the app had the abiility to create light groupings and saved light recipes, this app would be 5 stars for sure.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
