AMBIENT for Hue extracts the average color and the two most dominant colors out of an arbitrary scene in real time (e.g. screen of your TV). You can assign these colors to your hue lamps. This way you can imitate an ambilight TV by continuous scanning of your TV with the camera of your iPhone and placing one or more hue lamps behind your TV.
• Connect the app with your bridge by pressing the link button of your bridge (one-time).
• Assign your hue lamps to a color by tapping a color view.
• Press start button.
This app only works with a Philips hue starter set (bridge + hue bulbs). App needs to be in foreground.

Ratings and Reviews
Great app, one small recommendation
I've been waiting for an app like this for iOS since Huey on Google play. This is a fantastic rendition, I love that you can select multiple lights for multiple colors (average, primary, secondary). Only question I would ask of the developer is to allow you to zoom the camera. If you're aiming at the TV for example, you have to physically move the device to set it up so that the TV edge is the edge of the capture area instead of setting it up at a convenient distance and zooming to crop it as desired.
PLEASE ADD ZOOM FEATURE!!
Does not work for me !
Buy it, launch it, click on the pair button of my hue bridge... and nothing ! Lights don't change and I can't choose which light I want for ambilight.
Worse than useless
Doesn't cause any change in bulb whatsoever
