Switches for Hue
By Digital Beluga
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The Philips Hue is awesome. Switches takes that awesomeness and combines it with a simple, beautiful design to create a completely new way to manage the lighting in your home. Quickly scroll through switches for lights already attached to your Hue or add new lighting groups using intuitive gestures. You can even save your favorite colors for each room in your house and add shortcuts to those switches to your home screen!
Switches for Hue requires you to own a Philips Hue starter pack. You can purchase this from the Apple Store or visit meethue.com for more information.

Needs more controls
Seriously, folks. You can't add a simple help screen to your app to remind people of the controls? I can't delete a group no matter how much tapping and swiping I do. I know you tried to make this simple, but you're not as good at programming/coming up with an intuitive interface as you think you are.
Not worth it
This app seems cool because you can add switches to the home screen, but what these switches can do is very limited. You can only change a certain set of lights to one color. You can't turn lights on or off and you can't change more than one light to different colors. The UI is pretty confusing too. I prefer the Lightbow app or Rapid Hue
I don't understand this app. I read a review in a tech mag about how powerful and intuitive this was. Not even as good as the app that came with Hue in the first place. The instructions are a complete fail. Waste of money.
