Great app but needs one simple change

Great app, 5 stars for free app except only issue is when the lights are dimmed the color wheel turns darker and darker until it goes black. This is unhelpful and unneccesary since it makes it much harder to pick the right color when the lights are dim. Remove this issue and it would be great, would be worth at least a few dollars.

all function. 100% satisfied

I am working in the university and LIFX app does not work due to security. I bought this app and connect my MAC using hotspot from my iPhone and connect my LIFX bulb to the hotspot. And this app finds out my bulb and it worked. I can control the light intestiy and color. To control color, you have to double-click the power button. You can find it. Thank you for the app.

I give a thumbs up.

I wanted a simple desktop app that did mostly the same thing as the official iPad version but they haven’t made one for Mac yet. I wanted simple for when I’m at my computer and don’t want to fire up my iPad just to change the light. It’s easy to change colors and brightness which is really all I wanted. For 99c it’s a steal. Thanks.
