Let your album covers shine with Cover Lights.
The covers of your music tracks are real artworks. They use colors to express the mood of your music. Wouldn't it be great to adjust the room illumination to the mood of your music while you are listening to your favorite tracks? Well, now with Cover Lights and your Philips Hue Bulbs you can.

When playing a music track in the Apple Music app, Cover Lights automatically analyzes the colors of the corresponding cover art to tint your Philips Hue bulbs accordingly. In addition you can change the color selection for a cover using drag'n'drop, if you are not happy with Cover Lights' automatic selection.

* Cover Lights automatic color selection can be easily optimized using drag'n'drop
* You can search for music titles and start playing tracks directly from within the app (subscription to Apple Music required)
* In the basic version of this app you can control up to two lights in parallel. Controlling more lights requires an in-app purchase.

Please note:
* This app requires that your Philips Hue bulbs can be controlled from your device. Please ensure that you have a Hue Bridge with at least one bulb set up on your network before installing this app.
* This app only supports the Apple Music app to analyze and play music tracks
* Playing music titles directly from within the app requires a subscription to Apple Music
