This is probably the most comprehensive Hue app available. There is a bit of a learning curve, but it is well worth the time to figure it out.

An ok app


I originally wrote the view thinking this app was for the official app. For finding and managing lights I would not use it but some of the effects are kinda neat

Developer Response

If you are having trouble adding new lights, there may be 2.4 GHz interference. This can also impact light control between the app and your bridge. In most cases this can be resolved by powering down your bridge, WiFi router, and mobile device for 10 seconds. Increase the distance between your bridge and WiFi router to 3 feet. You should see sub-second responses to most commands. There is a Touchlink feature that can add problematic bulbs. Tap Settings => Touchlink => Force bulb to join bridge. More troubleshooting tips are available on the FAQ:

Updates now fix those areas in my previous review. Now a great app!

Paid the in app price for 48 lights because I have 6 lights but all the in app themes are only written for 3 lights and does not increase after the purchase!? Could be a great app if fixed!
