Best for Apartments
This version is better for smaller houses or apartments. You can make the same light come on whether you are in the kitchen, living, or dining room. Most of the main features are here. You can't use the new beta features, but if you have a small place this is the version you want. If you would like the lights to go off except in the bed and bath room at bedtime, you can do that. If you want the lights in the living and bath room to come on when you walk in the door at night you can do that. This flexibility is not allowed in the new version. Just keep in mind.
Broke my widget
Using the iPhone 5s and since your update, my widget no longer displays correctly. I don't use the "second" gen app because it supports less functionality than this one. For instance, unless it has been changed, the "second" gen app doesn't allow me to assign one light bulb to multiple rooms/ scenes. Before the critics say why would you need to do that, for my purposes it works. Also, in general, giving customers fewer options or control is not generally considered an improvement.
Broke widgets and primary app functionally
After the update, the widgets have stopped work.
Also after the update, the primary functions have also stopped working. The currently support Hue app doesn't have the same functions and this update leaves my smart home crippled.
Hue as yet again messed up a working solution. With more alternatives already on the market, I'm less likely to buy hue in the future.
