Perfectly Scary Fun

Synced effortlessly. Easy intuitive controls. Sounds and light effects are great. For a $2 app, it's everything I had wanted and hoped for. So much fun. Halloween will be so much more interesting this year. We have 10 hue bulbs. This app can put them all through so much more variations than I can on my own. The sounds are Bluetoothed to a remote speaker for that added scary fun impact. Set it on "continuous" and then it's all set. The problem I see is that unlike the Christmas and New Years apps, this one doesn't sync to a user selectable song. Even if it did, the Christmas and New Years versions are EXTREMELY unpredictable as to the song the app will play. The vast majority of the songs in my collection (1000's) simply gets generic "can't play" error message. Frustrating.

Spooky FUN!

I never used to be into Halloween. Then I got this App to utilize my Hue lights and now I can't resist expanding my decorating every year. I've been using this app to great effect for the past 3 Halloweens. We always get lots of compliments from trick-or-treaters and friends and my two toddlers LOVE playing with the spooky sounds/controlling the lights on the iPad app! It's a fun party trick for friends as well. Hooking it up to a Hue motion sensor works perfectly to trigger spooky sounds right as people approach the house.

One warning: start with a fully charged phone and keep it plugged in, since it will drain the battery like crazy. I recommend using the headphone audio jack to sync audio to the lights perfectly, if possible.

One of Hue's updates for the bridge nearly broke the app for Halloween 2018. I was SO happy when the developer fixed the compatibility update in a June 2019! I'm really looking forward to using this again next year.

I've bought other apps/add-ons for this App from the developer and would have happily paid much more for this App because of how FUN it is.

Good, but not very customizable

The concept is great and the new update adds a lot of needed control, however it would be nice to more controls like mood color selection, the option to not have moods change light colors (only the effects), and mood brightness. I'm unable to use the mood's audio I like best because the lights change and it doesn't work well with the effects. The main reason I'm giving this 3 stars, is because I had to pay again to get the new effects. I don't think we should have to pay to get updates. Improving the app in general will result in more people buying it. I believe that's more fair than charging your customers every time you do an update.
