## Why is this app the best option for you?
Here's what a recent user said about it:
"It’s easy to use and make new groups or create custom groups, it’s not a super powerful app like some of them but there is already a market for those types of apps, and we don’t need another one, this you pick your room(s) select a scene and be done with it which is great.
The screenshots in the app store show they type of scenes like fire, nature, etc. but the colors are unique compared to similar apps, and there are scenes like sports which is different from other apps I used.
I would recommend this app as is but not for someone who is a power user and wants to control every single aspect of their lights, it’s great for set it and forget it which I think is a big market.
As of now it’s only version 1.0 of the app, and at $5 it’s a bit expensive for an app store price, but as I said it’s a niche of a niche if people don’t support it, then more money can’t be put into development.
All in all, I’m happy with the app and look forward to updates. Good luck."
-- That's what I believe for this app.

Ratings and Reviews
WAY overpriced for simple presets
No customization. App picks which lights get which colors and that's it. For good. Always the same lights with the same colors. No imagination. It would take about ten minutes to do this myself. Out of their measly selection I found two that looked good and worked with my lamps but only because it randomly selected the right ones. There are MANY alternatives to this app, some with amazing animations and features. Simple to use and with much better User Interfaces. And cheaper too. I gave an extra star for effort but this app needs a major update with WAY more presets before I'd add another star to this review. I doubt I'll even ever launch the app again. I can't believe I paid for this.
Developer Response ,
Hello MadMadMikey, I'm sorry if the app didn't meet your expectations. Please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can guide you to get a refund. The whole idea behinds Lights is simplicity and ease of use. Each preset has unique color-set. If you’re always getting the same colors it may be a bug, please contact me so I can check what’s going on. I know there’s a lot of other apps with animations and options but after playing a while, it get’s boring and confused. Lights for iOS and Apple Watch offer more than 40+ scenes, manually and individually crafted for each type of light, giving you a real ambience lighting, making your life easier and joyfull, the way it should be. Best, Renan Protector
A tremendous value
To those who say this is overpriced, please understand $6.00 (less then you spend in a run to Taco Bell) is not at all a lot to ask for quality work. The free hue apps out there will charge 3.99 PER CATEGORY, and when you have over 10 categories - do the math.
This app is well designed, and clearly the developer is actively involved in its development based on his/her activity in the comments and the periodic updates. Great app I highly recommend.
Best app for many bulbs
I have 20 Philips Hue bulbs and this app works great with them. It sets a different color for each one, so the ambience lighting is always very close to the one I've setup on the app. Awesome!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
