Mr.Wheelzies ,

IMO The App Needs Redesigned

First, I’d like to start with a request for a new feature. I’m begging you to add HomeKit and Siri control. The competitors seem to have that down. That would be a game changer for me. Ok onto the review... The bulbs are a bit delayed but that’s more of a hardware thing. The app is organized in a super weird way. I feel like the whole app could be redesigned in a more up to date and aesthetically pleasing way. The different features seem to be unorganized and very randomly placed. Instead of tapping settings to access ALL settings for that individual bulb, you only get the option to rename or reset it. Every other setting is located in its own very short menu. There’s a couple small things like when you open the menu, the only way to close it is that same button again. The problem is that it’s in a completely different and inconvenient spot at the top right of the screen. I know there are better/multiple ways to go about that. When I tap “group” there is always a solid white bar at the bottom of the screen. I’d also like a way to set any features for specific groups rather than having to select every bulb individually. I love having the option to dim lights, turn individual bulbs off, change colors and every other cool thing. I just think the app itself needs a full and complete revamp. I hope this helps at least a little.

App NEEDS some significant work.

Great concept, the bulbs themselves are good except for the "hospital white fluorescent" nature of the white setting. The app, however has a number of problems:
- white background is too bright and ruins the ambiance when adjusting in a dark room.

- Natural looking candle-flame color is nearly impossible.

- generally only the solid color settings are consistent. The color wheel is off... e.g., the yellow is green-tinged

- switching between effects and candle and regular is poor, colors are reset, the effects often do crazy ambiance-ruining things that are quite unexpected.

Would not have bough the candles had I known how underdeveloped the app was.

It could use some improvement, but it’s not terrible.

I haven’t encountered any major issues so far with my Playbulb sphere. From the perspective of 10 years ago this is quite a cool thing. However, compared to other contemporary products it leaves a bit to be desired. For about the same price I can buy a Phillips Hue white and color ambience bulb. It will have similar color functionality plus the ability to act as a standard dim-able 60W bulb with white temperature selection. And most importantly, the Hue will integrate with HomeKit and respond to Siri voice control. The one unique feature of the Playbulb is the ability to remove it from its base and use it wirelessly. I can’t say I have used this feature much but it is the one thing that sets it apart. You really do get quite a bit more than you get with a Hue for the price though in most situations I would prefer a Hue. If they would just add HomeKit support it would make a world of difference. Additionally, the app could use some work in the design department so that it feels like a quality application and not something thrown together at the last minute. Lastly, the build quality of the device is quite good, though this is a review of the app and not the hardware.
