Great way to enhance Hue

This app does what the native Philips Hue app should do. It's easy to use and has lots of scenes available for purchase (even the free ones are awesome)

It does what it's told.

Very much like a well trained dog. It just does what it's told! You name it! Paint the house, watch the children, bear heavy loads.


Hands-down the best app for the Phillips hue lightbulbs.
