HOME THEATER ALBUM IMPROVEMENTS
Based on your feedback we've made some changes:
- Easier to understand effect icons.
- Color Accurate Lighting effect is now brighter for better usage as bias lighting behind TVs.
- Intermission effect turns red faster, from the moment you click, to keep your eyes adjusted to the dimmer theater lighting.
Now... go have some fun with your lights! :-)
Why am I getting hgrp groups added to my iOS widget? They showed up in groups in the app. I deleted them but they are still in widgets, even though I deleted the widget and readded it. The widget also does not match what lights are actually on or off. This all used to work just perfectly so I am assuming it is caused by an update you made??? Rating 5 stars after this is fixed. Thank you!
Lost All Previous Purchases
I use to LOVE this app, but the recent update caused the loss of ALL of my scene purchases. No luck with restore purchases button. I wrote an email last week and received a "we are working on it" reply. Great, but due to the lack of scenes I purchased and enjoyed with On Switch, I have found several new apps that I enjoy as much or more than On Switch. And so far none have charged me for scenes and then taken them away later.
I've tried many hue apps, some novel and others that are suppose to be utilities. None of them get the simple things right.
This app works great, comes with so many preconfigured scenes that are really good.
