V4.0 feels like a step in exactly the wrong direction. The previous versions allowed control of four lights or groups within a single row of screen space, but now, only one light/group can be controlled per row. I’m all for the “view more“ feature, but not at the expense of a 300% increase in on-screen real estate to control the same four lights as before.

New version removes everything I loved about this simple widget :(

It used to be simple, now I have to “show more” to get to my lights. It’s no longer quick and simple and takes up too much screen real estate.

Developer Response ,

Hi Eddie,

First, I'm sorry to see this update has disappointed you.
I've been working quite some time on it, because because I've received a lot of feedbacks saying the app doesn't really match with the "new" notification center style, this seemed to be the "popular" opinion.

Unfortunately, the "Show more" button is a requirement now for widgets (imposed by Apple), and the widget *must* support the default size (when just a single light is displayed).
You'll probably notice that all of the other widgets have this "Show less" / "Show more" behaviour.

However, if you've clicked on "Show more" once, it should be the default when you open the notification centre again. Could you let me know if this works for you ?

Also, would you be kind enough to contact me by mail ( so we can discuss it further, and I can understand what's bugging you with this one and improve in the upcoming update ?

Thanks a lot for your time and feedback,
