One of the only FUN lighting apps!!

Have tried many lighting apps in the last few years, most lack entertainment or are too cumbersome to enjoy. I've only used this a few times now and I love it. They have made it simple to transfer the audio to any home speaker, which greatly enhances every scene. For some reason most apps can't figure this out. Will definitely unlock all as soon as I can afford it. I would like to see a customizable widget for IPhone, and a way to add a few scenes to the pop up menu from the home icon.

Awesome app

I’m giving this app 5stars cause The app is awesome it has a lot of themes to choose from you would never get tired of this app the first time you start using the app themes you will fall in love with them I know did. It’s my go too app for lights now and I have all of the major big light apps but this one beats them all
I love all the themes I really love the 80s theme but who can just pick 1 all of the themes are awesome. So get this app your going to be glade that you did

A suggestion is to bring more holiday lights
Like st. Patrick’s day Easter Memorial Day
Veterans Day. These are just some ideas
But all of the major holidays would be great
More day time sky. 1 could be the sun with clouds Moon and stars at night
That’s all I could think of for now

Keep on bringing awesome new themes so we can rock out our light at home with.

Keep up the great work on the awesome app

Good recipes but lack of user control

Lighter for Hue Lights provides some good recipes for mood lighting. Their recipes are actually more inviting than on the Hue app itself.

However, the scenes change color and luminosity without warning and there does not appear a way to fix a scene for any duration beyond a few minutes. It is like you have a continuous palette of changing colors. If this is expected behavior, then I would ask the developer to allow more user control on how and when scenes change.

For this reason, I simply save a particular scene to the Hue app.
