Quick Hue automatically detects your lights and gives you one-touch access to all their controls. Tap to turn a light on or off, use the slider to control brightness, or swipe left or right to pick a color. Group your lights into different sections and control them together, or use the main power button to turn all the lights in your Philips Hue system on or off at once. Easily save your settings to reset your lights exactly how you like them whenever you open Quick Hue. The app badge icon tells you at a glance how many lights are currently on.

Ratings and Reviews
Can't adjust by groups
All I want is to be able to set color and brightness by group. Thought this app was it. But no. Groups only allow you to turn on/off by groups. All adjustments are individual lights only. Should be able to swipe the group names to do adjustments.
Also interface seems simple but its too simple. It's hard to remember which way to swipe to adjust color or brightness. When adjusting brightness it's hard to get out of that screen too.
Intuitive and well-made
Don't be put off by the seemingly low star rating caused by 1-star reviews from people who couldn't get the app to work. It was easy to set up, and the interface is fantastic. I've tried several different apps, and some have fun options for rapid color shifting that this doesn't have, but none of them help you manage your lighting system so intuitively and easily (including the Philips app). The ability to group lights is a huge help, and if the makers were to add the possibility to manage timing and alarms, this would be a perfect app. For that reason, I'd probably only give this 4 stars at the moment, but I want to help offset the unhelpful 1-star reviews.
Simple and Practical
I've tried quite a few Hue apps and this one is my clear favorite for day-to-day use. It provides full control of all Hue featues without getting cluttered up with stuff (I'm talking to you "Scenes") that have only occasional utility. This allows the UI to be minimalist (in a good way) and quite intuitive. Spend a couple of minutes reviewing the included instructions (so the wife and kids don't have to) and you are away.
I did have a minor issue with naming lighitng groups (called Sections in this app) but with some amazing customer support the developer fixed this in a new version over one weekend.
