Dance Sensation Doesn’t work

I bought this for the dancing sensation because it was a great addition to the lights. After this last update install doesn’t work on all the lights I have set up in a group. Only one or two out of the three work at a time. If he can fix I would give this a 4 but I’m really disappointed.

Takes Hue to Next Level

Fantastic app I have around 87 (and growing) different connected hue devices across two bridges (so far) and this is the first app that has been able to seamlessly leverage both in one user experience. Plus it extends on features and capabilities of native Hue...and goes well beyond the standard out of the box Hue experiences for personalization. Very impressed as a consumer and professionally as an Exec IT leader. Well done here Hue Essentials.

This is the best app for your hue lights, easy to use and affordable in my opinion. I think i payed like 6 dollars for the full version and it works great, has lots of flowing color options andddd it doesn’t stop even when your phone is asleep which is awesome! It does not react to sound, but honestly it doesn’t even matter because it does so many other things too. 10/10 would recommend.
