"The most easy to use, efficient, everyday Philips hue app"

**Palettes for Philips Hue is now a universal app with iPad support.** - Support for iPad Slide Over and Split View!

I designed Palettes for Hue to be an easy to use, everyday light control app for Philips Hue light bulbs. It features easy zone-based light controls, and custom designed light scenes. Palettes for Philips Hue provides quick access to all of your light zones, allowing you to turn your lights on or off, change brightness, or select a fun random light setting. With just one more tap, you have access to 8 predesigned color palettes, each containing 4 custom light scenes.


* Create up to 16 light zones (e.g., kitchen, bedroom, foyer, great room, etc...)
* Edit and delete existing light zones.
* Control brightness, power, and random color selections in the main app screen.
* One tap access to pre-designed color palettes.
* Standard and dim light palettes are free!
* Unlock five additional light palettes.
* Long press a color square to rearrange selected palette colors within your light zone.

***This app only works with Philips Hue light bulbs***

Almost great

I like that this app sort of "fills in the gaps" of the official Hue app, and it is worth buying at least one of the dynamic effects, but it is missing basic things other third-party apps have, like being able to read the scenes already added to the Hub, and being able to add your own scenes.

I also appreciate the Apple Watch app, and I like being able to control brightness from my wrist better than the official Hue widgets, but there's no way to access scenes this way.

Love this app!

I have set up my house so every room has Phillips Hue. Even my outside doors have them. I absolutely love the scenes in this app. The variety of colors and matchup they have is awesome. It makes it super easy to pick a mood. The scenes with music are awesome as well. I'm hoping a few more Halloween scenes happen before we hit October. I do wish there was a way to set presets for some scenes. I've found one scenes the default brightness is sooo low. Easy to adjust, just annoying. The pal can be buggy here and there but for the most part operates great. I use this more than my native Hue app.

Please update! Best app!

Please please update! This app is my fav in the entire store. Easy and very aesthetically pleasing options to choose from. Would love so much if the developer would revisit the app they seemingly abandoned 😔 I dislike the other hue apps! This one has serious potential to be #1 among all hue users if just a couple things were adjusted or updated to fit 2021.
