Very hand and it works all the time

This application is very convenient to control all the Hue lights around the house (37 bulbs by now). Right from the menu bar, it is the fastest way to control the lights, and it is very responsive.

Slow to refresh

Seems like it’s battling with other controllers. Sometimes it’ll flicker, sometimes it’s just really slow to update the color, etc. Not sure. If I change it on my app, I have to manually click refresh to get it to show the current color.

Worked briefly then doesn’t at all

I installed it and it worked for a while.

Then it stopped working. Tried refreshing, fail. Tried reconnecting, fail. Tried reinstalling, fail.

All my other apps work with the Hue, so it’s not a problem with the Hue hub or my network. Very little info on the application.
