Prepare to be a betatester


Don't get me wrong, the actual HUE-system is great, but the iOS-app is a total mess right now. The system is quite new so I'm pretty sure that all the flaws in the app are being worked on. But as of now, all of us that have bought the Phillips HUE-system should consider ourselves early adopters and beta-testers.

1. The Apps crashes from time to time.
2. There is no way to create a "scene" without using a photo or using one of Phillips four "presets". The colourmap that is available in "freeform"-mode is not present when creating a scene and there is no way to save a preset in "freeform"-mode.
3. Syncing scenes between iOS-devices is buggy at best. If you delete the preset scenes, they will pop up again and again if you add a new device to control your system.
4. The app is sometimes confusing. For example, the colourmap only appears in landscape mode and there is only a vague indication that it even exists. I found it by accident.

The creators of this App should scrap the current version and go back to the drawing board and take cues from the Apple HIG (Human Interface Guide). If Phillips give me 10 HUE lightbulbs for free I will create a dummy app to show how it should be done. This App in it's current state is an embaressement. BUT I LOVE THE HUE-System so far and the app can only get better.

Love it!!!


I think the other user is a bit nitpicking. I got it yesterday and absolutely love it. It's actually brighter than my old light bulbs. The color range is amazing. You can even set it to something that looks like natural sun light. It definitely helps when winters are so dark here in Scandinavia.

Ok app, but not great.


Hue system is nice if a bit overpriced.

The mail problem with our iOS devices is that the slider for intensity of the light is extremely unresponsive.

A system as nice ad Hue deserves an app that is more functional and better working.
