Ratings and Reviews

Intuitive and well-made

Pat Muchmore

Don't be put off by the seemingly low star rating caused by 1-star reviews from people who couldn't get the app to work. It was easy to set up, and the interface is fantastic. I've tried several different apps, and some have fun options for rapid color shifting that this doesn't have, but none of them help you manage your lighting system so intuitively and easily (including the Philips app). The ability to group lights is a huge help, and if the makers were to add the possibility to manage timing and alarms, this would be a perfect app. For that reason, I'd probably only give this 4 stars at the moment, but I want to help offset the unhelpful 1-star reviews.

Simple and Practical


I've tried quite a few Hue apps and this one is my clear favorite for day-to-day use. It provides full control of all Hue featues without getting cluttered up with stuff (I'm talking to you "Scenes") that have only occasional utility. This allows the UI to be minimalist (in a good way) and quite intuitive. Spend a couple of minutes reviewing the included instructions (so the wife and kids don't have to) and you are away.

I did have a minor issue with naming lighitng groups (called Sections in this app) but with some amazing customer support the developer fixed this in a new version over one weekend.

Do not waste your money


After reading an article that recommended this app and looking at previous reviews, I thought this would be a safe bet - I was SO WRONG. Leaving aside the constant crashing, the UI is completely incomprehensible and ignores standard and Apple recommended UI guidelines. For instance to edit and move lights into sections you tap an icon in the menu bar (which you have to enable the help screen to figure out) and then drag lights around. And if you want turn off all the lights at once and you have more that fit on one screen then the app will only turn off those that are visible on screen instead of the whole group.

I can only guess the previous non-iOS 7 version of the app made more sense. Even with the bugs aside the app is cumbersome and unintuitive and a big let down.
