Well, that didn’t work...

I can’t use the app because it can’t find my bridge. I select the bridge but it doesn’t ask me to push the button, it just takes me to the home screen then asks to select the bridge again.

Oh, and just a note to the developer: It is insane to ask for $5 a month to turn on my lights. iConnectHue and OnSwitch do the same exact thing but don’t hold you hostage with a membership. I’m just going to delete this app until you get less greedy and just have a one time unlock fee. Seriously.

Killed my battery

Very cool dynamic scenes, but unfortunately it killed my phone battery by running all night even though lights were off and phone screen was off. This makes it unusable for me as at some point I’ll forget to force-quit the app before I go to sleep. Aside from that it’s cool enough to make me consider purchasing the full version if the battery issue is fixed.

Could you email me at so I can get your feedback on what might fix the issue for you? Thanks --David

Demanding a review.

You know how pushy these apps are for 5 star reviews. I am giving this app 5 stars because (thus far) I am in love with the animations and the scenes of the week 😘. I just wish the animations were continuous, but nice all he same.

Thank you ❤️
If you have more feedback, or ideas for features or scenes, feel free to send me a note at ! --David
