LIFX App bad

I have downloaded the LIFX app for my color changing wifi light bulb. It did not register or even pick it up in the perferences of the app. it works through HOME app on my Mac. I have an extension in Google Chrome web browser that can control it. So if all of those apps can see it, why can't this app see it? My iPhone has an LIFX app that works and Google assistant and HOME are all good. So I gave up trying with this app.

I give a thumbs up.

I wanted a simple desktop app that did mostly the same thing as the official iPad version but they haven’t made one for Mac yet. I wanted simple for when I’m at my computer and don’t want to fire up my iPad just to change the light. It’s easy to change colors and brightness which is really all I wanted. For 99c it’s a steal. Thanks.

all function. 100% satisfied

I am working in the university and LIFX app does not work due to security. I bought this app and connect my MAC using hotspot from my iPhone and connect my LIFX bulb to the hotspot. And this app finds out my bulb and it worked. I can control the light intestiy and color. To control color, you have to double-click the power button. You can find it. Thank you for the app.
