Customer Reviews


Still haven't fixed the problems caused by the last update. The background is now an AWFUL blue, timers no longer work when you tap on them for the scene selection screen, and geofencing is no longer working correctly. This update is a complete step in the wrong direction. Bring back tap to activate timers please, it seems crazy to have to go into a menu for such a simple functionality. I seriously can't believe that you pay people to screw things up so badly. What a complete joke. I'm calling phillips tomorrow to have them refund the hundreds of dollars that I spent for my lighting system. Who is in charge over there. Seriously... Pull it together. Way to completely screw up something that worked fine for everyone before Also, removing functionality and forcing people to update to your crappy app shouldn't been be allowed by Apple. What a horrible way to treat your customers. Thanks for nothing.

Update messed up many functions

I've had the hue since Christmas 2013 and have enjoin it we'll. of course there were some features the app needed to improve and that's why I was excited to see the updated app in late June. I like how the alarms now has a dedicated menus but when I go to edit it either won't allow me to edit or it acts like it saved the work but the next day my light turn on bright and early :( it wakes me up before I need to be awake and that makes me cranky. please fix. If you are using an older app program, keep it. Wait 'till these bugs are fixed. Hope this helps.

Save my last app view

I like my Philips Hue lights and the app works ok for me.

The app is annoying to me, though, because it does not save state. I almost always have to tap a few times to get back to where I was last time I had the app open.

Please save app state when leaving or exiting the app.
