Best Hue app out there. Period.
After going through all the trials and tribulations of having to find a replacement for the boring and poorly-designed Philips Hue stock app, I found Aurora. It is simply the BEST Hue app out there, and I say this after having tried dozens. I love its simple, elegant, intuitive design, ease of use, and focus on core functions. It just works. The only two things I would add are a widget for Notification Center (to switch lights on and off quickly, without having to launch the app), and the possibility to edit and/or add new scenes. Other than that, this app is pretty much flawless.
Absolutely great app love it so far! The UI is simple and well thought out. Just a few things that would make this a 5 star app: 1) Adjusting the brightness of groups should be dynamic instead of waiting until you release to change the brightness (adjusting the brightness of a single bulb works as expected and changes the brightness as you adjust it.) 2) Scenes should be editable, I should be able to create and save my own scenes.
A Must Have for Hue Lights
This app has a beautiful interface and allows for quick and easy control of lights. A much better experience than using the official Hue app.
