Get it. Now. This is a good example of a good app with an even better developer. The program itself is rather good, although it does have a few (small) bugs. The dev responds to every bug report you make; needless to say, I'm impressed. I hope he keeps the good work and hopefully he also adds more features in the future. I'll update with news, good or bad (hopefully the former).
Best Hue app available, hands down. This is by far the best hue app I have found. Easy to use, very customizable, great widgets, and awesome customer support. For some reason the official hue app that philips made is obtuse, limited, and buggy. That is quite surprising given how awesome the hue technology is and how necessary a well-designed app is to easily control said tech. Hue Pro is the app that they should have designed in the first place. The creator keeps the app up-to-date and offers fast, helpful support if you need it. There are a few features that it would be nice to see added at some point - namely tap switch control and the ability to remove presets from the bridge, but even without those, this app rocks.
Pretty good, not amazing The app is pretty good, although the interface is kinda ugly. Going from the Lava Lamp/Music module to the normal free module is clunky and annoying. Also, I use 2 bulbs on a schedule to fade from off to full over 20 minutes in the morning when I wake up. This schedule works sometimes, but not every day that I have it set. Sometimes it just doesn't run. Not sure why, but it's annoying that it doesn't work all the time.
Decent app, but could be better The Good - fairly easy to configure and get nice color combinations on your Hue lamps. In this regard, it's far better than the Hue app from Philips. The Bad - good luck getting remote access to the lamps to work properly. The default Philips Hue app works flawlessly. I can turn the lamps on and off from any location with no problem. I can't with this app. I followed the instructions which had me forwarding port 80 to the Philips Bridge IP address. There are two problems with this: 1. Every time you reboot your wireless router, you will probably have a new IP address for the bridge, so this will no longer work unless you reconfigure again. 2. Most Internet companies block port 80, so it doesn't work anyway. I like the custom colors on this, but I end up using the default Hue app as it works with the Hue Tap and also I can control the lights anywhere.
The real deal Never rated an app before...but have to give this one credit. The hue app from manufacturer is nearly useless if you ever plan to put more than a few bulbs on the bridge. I have 24 bulbs, 3 strips and a spot all working perfectly now since Christmas. The grouping is a snap and adjusting bulbs doesnt take a phd. My kids love making presets for their parties and the music pulsing is a real trip with a house full of lights. This was well worth the money.
Off button I have an issue when turning off all lights in certain rooms one bulb stays on. Bridge is up to date and all that.
Great App I use dozens of lights spread out over multiple rooms. This does exactly what I need, is very customizable, and allows for one touch changes to specific groups. I had a question for the developer and he responded in a very helpful and friendly way in a matter of hours. Bravo.
Works well and updates frequently This app helps me get more out of my hue system than the stock app from Philips. Its been updated repeatedly to be more functional and stable. Worth every cent!
Great app. Easy to use. Lot's of options.
[Problem resolved] Wonderful normally but no longer working. Causes my lights to turn on/off sporadically but won't let me control them manually. Could do with a material update, as for all its merits the app does look pretty bad.
Nothing special Seems like these reviews are written by the apps developers. Keep in mind app tracks browsing history and bookmarks for some reasons. Also be prepared to spend more $$$ if you want more in app features, such as tuning lights to music. I wish I'd saved the buck
Great app...until recent updates The functionality and ease of use this app offers over the Official Hue app is wonderful. I wish it was a bit cleaner, modern and more intuitive but those things are very minor considering how well the app has worked. That said, recent updates have completely broken all my setups. Lights don't always respond and sometimes only turn on dimmed. Groups, widgets ... everything is completely messed up. 1.9.7 is advertised as fixing the issues, but it does not for me. I have reloaded Hue Pro and set everything back up from scratch, it still doesn't work. I even reset my hub and added all my lights back and renamed them, still nothing. Hopefully this issue will be corrected soon. I will update my rating at that time.
Update 4/2 Broke everything! Philips hue detects my lights correctly, hue pro mixed them all up. Bed is bar, tv is bathroom... UPDATE: installed update 1.9.7 and all seems fixed. Nicely done dev!
Great App - Stopped working I really like this app because it does everything I expected the official app to do. However, it stopped working for a few and I had to reinstall it. Overall, it.works well and does what I expect.
Best Hue app out there. Better features than the Philips app, and has a desktop widget for easy access. I think I saw this bundled with the in app purchase upgrades for about $5.00 - seriously get the bundle. This app is so good you will end up buying the refinements anyway, so save a dollar or so and just get it all in one go. I have a total of 7 Hue fixtures and this app handle them all really well. Especially love the Lava Lamp setting which allows slow gentle fades for cool ambient lighting. Great job Dev's!
Best of the general hue apps (edit: latest update SEEMS to fix widgets so knock wood) Best Hue app by far. More functional than the official app. Widgets are crucial. All of the important stuff is free and I gladly paid for the fun add-ons. Now if only my actual hue lamps were this reliable...
Turns lights on randomly Individual lights are turning themselves on. BIG issue when it does it to the main bedroom light. Also turns individual lights up to full when they're dimmed. Can't seem to see a reasoning or logic as to which lights this affects. Also note that all timers and alarms were deleted when this started happening but hasnt fixed the issue.
Worth the purchase Use it on every device (4 tablets 1 phone) ..love the alarm mode (schedule mode). The Widgets are great for one touch settings. Dev works hard at maintaining this app and any issues that arise. That is something worth the price alone.
Got this for the Tasker integration but it's ended up being my main control app. The widgets are good now and for a hue light you can just pick the white temperature and brightness which is what I want a lot of the time. Few bugs but the developer seems to be resolving them reasonably quickly. Happy with the app, I'd say it's worth having.
Actually works Thank you for an application that works unlike the official application. I appreciate your work. Thank you again.
It WAS amazing Until this Dev gets the shuffling light situation fixed, steer clear of this app. Right now, its a thorn in my side. For the record, it was amazing before all this stuff started. EDIT: Added star for helpful developer
Was great when the widget worked The widget has been removed and still is not not back. Disappointing
Works ok Just wish I could get dark blue, it won't get as blue as Phillips app for done reason
Great, only 1 minor issue This is easy more useful than the stock Hue app. My only issue is that the scheduler (alarms) seem to only provide an option to fade out over time, but I'd like to see the ability to fade in the lights in the morning.
Dev is responsive to feedback I use this 50 times a day.
Crashes when uploading presets to bridge App crashes when uploading presets to bridge so they can be usd with a tap
Latest update 1.9.7 works great again. The latest update 1.9.7 has fixed my issues. Thanks to a great, responsive developer :)
Widget now works properly Everything works well now, even widgets, custom widget works beautifully
Great App, Widget Broken Great and versatile app. I love the ability to specify your own IP address. However, the latest update broke widgets functionality. Only when using widgets do I get one bulb missing 50% of the time.
Most recent update 4/2/15 Completely destroyed my hue experience with the latest update.....nothing works properly.
Good app, bad update. I've been using it for a while, and have been enjoying the use of it - but the latest update has broken the widget and light groups aren't working well anymore
Good app I like the app, but if you could have a setting the would make the music transitions more subtle.
Stellar job screwing up all my lights with the newest update In every way
Can't connect to bridge This app will not connect to my bridge. The hue stock app connects so I'm not sure what the issue is.
Great product Developer gives amazing support
Best Hue App!!!! I also use Hue Pro Tasker, both of these apps are continuously improved, the Developer does awesome work... These apps are in my most used list!
Perfect This app has everything you could wish for for Philips Hue. No other Hue app, including Philips' own app comes close to this.
Great app when it wants to work I paid for a app that sometimes works,the music feature keeps cutting off. I have to go back to the app to reconnect to the bridge. Major hassle. Would have given it 5 stars if it worked properly
Consistently inconsistent Samsung Galaxy S5 user here. This is full of bugs. Please don't waste your money. When using the app sometimes lights come on randomly after a timer is used to turn off lights. Widget is very inconsistent and intermittent.
Inconsistent toy Have several lights in three rooms for 6 months now, using scheduled function as the primary. The Hue system is not a reliable foundation for any app. Its a cute and fun toy, and the Hue Pro an excellent app for controlling it. However, the scheduled function frequently fails to run, and the bridge disconnects frequently requiring the phone to be reset to reconnect. Part of this is Hue as a system, part the app. I'm happy enough with the app, not thrilled with the Hue itself, will not be adding more to it.
Works well. On a Note 4 and haven't noticed any issues. Definitely better than the Philips app. Happy.
This is an Awesome App I love the functionality and other integrations. However, will you be able to have an option to configure this with Dynamic DNS please....
Its ok so far except for two big disapointing problems ok make that 3 first off using on a galaxy s3 and asus mempad hd 10 the fade doesnt it just switches to new color/status then maybe fades to new brightness maybe but does not fade or blend one color into another say from orange to red just jumps from orange to red also doesnt always turn on or off the lights a big no no and when i try to use it another device the paid for extras are not available even tho i paid for them! like the music which i paid for but btw still doesnt actually work i think you have to have volume blasting and your mic by the speaker for it to work maybe. also doesnt work too well with amazon echo in combination for example when you tall echo to turn on lights while this app is runing they do come on but at like 10 % really dim etc.....
Hue Tap needed I would appreciate the ability to save my themes to my hue tap.
Great app & huge improvement over OEM Hue app After initially setting up our system, I quickly found the OEM Philips Hue app limited in its capabilities and lack of intuitive interface. I purchased Hue Pro after reading many positive reviews on tech sites and blogs. I'm so glad I did. The functionality is great, ability to create light groups is a huge help & makes setting up scenes that much easier. Philips should really be using this as their core app. We've never had the app fail or not respond as it should. A must for Hue owners.
music function bug music function worked fine then stopped suddenly and hasn't worked since :(
Its a good app No real problems yet or noticed... would like to add a picture to a preset like the real philips hue app..so its not so cumbersome.. im up to 16 lights already and scrolling down takes a bit..lol
Highly logical - Spock approved. Much more intuitive than the Phillips app, and hope your able to keep up the good work!
Excellent app, but missing a Android wear control
Probably the best HUE app for android! It has some bugs but the developer is more than happy to help! So far I haven't faced any problem with its functionality. You can create groups, control individual bulbs, strips, blooms... You can create new scenes selecting any hue lamp you wish... Though, I would prefer a different way of selecting colors, something like the Philips app... That would be the fifth star for me! Keep up the good work!
Not as good as free apps No more features than the original app and some of the free apps for hue are much better. It works though.
Simple update I see you leave comments Ben...and you might see this and I love the app and payed for everything but the color flow could use a touch up because it tens to go white when switching colors where the free app "onswitch" charges nothing and the color flow is way smoother....please fix :) hope you see this message!!!
Stable but way too basic. App is overrated, not sure why /how! The app is way too basic for a paid app. There is no option to apply a theme to a group, it's really frustrating to create a permutation and combination of all presets for each theme for a given group. "OnSwitch" has this feature and as a result I end up using that app all the time. No "candle" feature, free color flow in IFTTT is better than paid lava lamp, in my opinion. Also no support for tap app and dimmer (not reducing any stars because of that yet). I find nothing exciting in this app.
Philips should buy this app, theirs is very broken. Awesome support here!
Great updates Updated often, simple to use
Fast and Frustration Free Great app! Controlling my Philips Hue and Cree Connected lights is fast and frustration free.
Hands down the best hue app. Also updated regularly with nice fixes and other stuff.
Best The best so far
Aeons better than the Stock app Simple per-bulb controls where dimming one or turning another one up won't randomly affect the rest of the bridge. Lava lamp is a great way to have a bed light with a fun twist! Scene creation is also heaps easier to use and is just overall better in every way. Could use a visual polish, though. I am not a fan of how tasker, lava lamp and hue pro is not the same app, though.
Excellent app This app is way more advanced than the official Hue app. It's extremely customizable, and well worth downloading. I also had a problem understanding how to do something and the creator responded to my email super fast.
outstanding. Solid product which does a good job communicating with my Hue devices but the fifth star is because the developer appears to be consistently working to improve and expand the product which let's face it does not happen with many apps these days! I love the addition of the ability to set a second address to allow port forwarding and therefore control them remotely which is especially helpful in conjunction with something like a camera for monitoring the apartment when I'm away
Fantastic hue lights app This app is far better than the original. One thing I would add though would be the ability to turn your lights on and off with Android wear.
Very useful Lots to like about this app. The one thing that stands out to me is the fine tune controls to get precisely the color you want to achieve.
This is the best app for Hue lights. By far better than anything out there. After the recent update I gave the app a not so good rating. But the writer of this app contacted me about the problem. I really didn't think I would get a response, but Benjamin was all about fixing the problem. Thanks again Ben for contacting me. This is how all apps should be if something is broken in the writing of an app the developer is there for you!
Upgrade loses the bridge Never trust developers who push "value-added" updates that supposedly give new features but which instead render the app worthless. After this latest update it simply will NOT find the bridge! I'm now sorry I ever bought this worthless app!
Much better I like this app much better... Works well with tasker free app as well... I wish that tasker app would give options for different colors for each light in one task vs multiple... But that isn't this aps problem... Not as visual as standard app. But much better functionality.
The only Hue App I use Hands down the best application for controlling your Hue setup. Awesome work Dev!
A must have for Hue Light owners! So much better than the app that comes with the lights.
Why is this app telling me the bridge isn't connected ? What is the bridge can anyone tell me please ?
Needs some work Does what it says for the most part but the music part in particular keeps saying too quiet, despite the blue bar flashing quiet strongly. This means the lights often stay paused. Tried auto, treble and bass, makes no difference. If the microphone sensitivity is dialed up a bit, this app would be fantastic!
Still the Best Hue App!!!! 1 year on since first rating 5 ....I also use Hue Pro Tasker, both of these apps are continuously improved, the Developer does awesome work... These apps are in my most used list!
Does not sync bridge presets Too bad it does not show all the presets I created in the original app...
Wonderful app for controlling your Philips Hue lights, definitely the best available on the Android market and will seemingly continue to be so with regular updates. The latest update, however, has caused an issue in my case where the in-app brightness slider defaults to certain positions when I try to increase it or decrease it, mostly around halfway should I try to increase the brightness past this point or to either a quarter or a tenth of the total bar should I try to lower it. Any help with or a fix for this issue would be greatly appreciated. My device is a Nexus 5X.
Really want to like this But it is extremely buggy on my Nexus 5x. Widget works about 50% of the time. App lets you copy a preset, and defaults to the same name. If you don't change the name, the two appear to conflict and cause unexpected reactions to light settings. I'd also pay $ for sunrise simulation wake up functionality that changes hue from reddish toward white as the intensity rises. Crashes every time if the app is active when you transition from cellular to home network.
Install this not the default hue app Phillips hue app mad me not like the bulbs , this app made me fall in love all over again
Great My only suggestion/wish would be the ability to reorder the bulbs. Also, lava lamp doesn't always seem to work.
I love this app Been using it ever since I got the Hue. It's a ton better than the stock Hue app. All I ever use. Definitely worth every penny and then some.
Stole my 99 cents Bought this app for the lava feature. When I select the lava option...tells me to purchase.
Wrong labels on widget Buttons should be inverted. Label should read the status that will be triggered. Or should say Off when On and vice versa.
Absolutely Awesome Outdoes the OEM application by a no contest level.
Great app!! It works flawlessly..even the music setting !! Great job on this one!!
Works well with Alexa I love being able to control the house lights with Alexa
Good app when it works, but it will stop connecting to my bridge randomly leaving me to go back to the normal hue app.
pretty much perfect now! I prefer this over the official Hue app, and the fact that the developer constantly keeps the app updated if any bugs appear is a great sign! =)
Great Excellent replacement for the official app. Provides much more control and additional features.
Way better than official Hue app Loads faster, remembers connection to the bridge and simply just works, with minimal permissions.
Light I pay for it not working won't even turn my light on say it can't find bridge
Not perfect But... the best option available!
Update fixed battery issue Battery issue resolved quickly with recent update, thanks very much. Top app again now!
Awesome app, wonderfully responsive dev The app works perfectly. Whenever there was a hiccup, the developer has been quick to help me fix it. He is awesome.
Best Hue App This has to be the best Hue App out. Simple to setup and use. Keep up the great work. Would love to see a basic color loop option added.
Use to be great... Since I updated this app it lags really bad. It does offer good options and is better than the hue app though.
The Dude is right! Easy and intuitive to use and manage your lights.
Something just broke Last update killed this app. No longer works. Uninstall
Forget the Philips app, use this one. It'll save you lots of time, energy and grey hair.
Crashes App crashes after I choose a scene, hope it's fixed soon
Amazing!! Application works very well, voice commands would be a great addition.
Great App Does exactly what you need from it
Awesome I use it everyday!
Love the simplicity, wish i could import my settings from the hue app itself, that would be amazing.
Priceless Application Hue Pro continues to show up the original application Phillips included with the bulbs.
The best dies what you ask and it dors everything the others do without losing connection very.reliable
Works Great. Great working application. Really like the copy functions and tasks
Great app Good app, works as designed.
Solid App Solid app with quality updates. Thank you for addressing issues when they arise in a timely manner. This app is what Phillips should have released.
Ugly as....but works great. Probably the ugliest app on my phone, but works great. Recently got a bit obnoxious with the advertisement of the iOS version. Why in the world the developer is advertising for ios via this Android app is questionable.
Great app, great support This app is a must have for Hue users. The layout is intuitive and the functionality is comprehensive. I had a slight problem with the app crashing on my Marshmallow device but Benjamin fixed it straight away when I contacted him.
This was working out great until I noticed it uses a quarter of my battery usage when I'm not even on wifi(i.e. the only situation I can reach my lights). as well as seemingly unnecessary data usage and permissions to my phone and microphone. This is somewhat sketchy to me.
One of the best apps on Google This app keeps my condo so nice and fancy! Keep up the good work!
Excellent Works great and much better than the Phillips app.
Have been using the app for a couple of years now, the latest updated seems to have introduced a problem that is leading to high battery use. Hue Pro now shows up as the top consumer of power on my Nexus 6p running Marshmallow 6.0.1. Please fix this asap!
Better than the native Hue App
Interface is nice but... Destroying my battery
Better for many Lights This app is especially strong when running the maximum number of bulbs supported by a bridge. Many apps will flood the bridge with commands resulting in stacked light shows that run well after the app has exited. While the scene control and other aspects could use some features, the execution of the music and lava lamp functionality is better than any other app I have purchased. This developer has executed those aspects flawlessly, and that in itself is worth the purchase.
Was good Now it needs to be reconnected to the bridge all the time you know pushing that stupid light blue light when all you wanted was a the bathroom dimmed
Adding new lights always a pain It takes forever to find new lights. Need to be able to clear all lights from bridge and refresh the setup. I tried uninstall and reinstall but it left its settings in my phone. Please make a clear and refresh feature for 5 stars from me.
What a great app! The user interface mapping is natural and easily understandable, it is much more human centered than the manufacturer's offering. Looks like good people are coming out of UMLowell!
I've tried a lot of Hue apps, this is the best I've found.
Easy to use! This application has a very nice feature set and easy to use!
Easy to use, but need a way to schedule on and off The alarm turns the lights on. How do I get them you turn off at a specified time? Otherwise, easy to use.
Better than the app that comes with the kit!!
Can't delete light Great app. However - bug when trying to delete a light that I no longer own. I get an error. (Method delete not available for resource light) or something to that extend - can't copy paste.
Paid App with limited features? This is a paid App where half of its content is locked and needs additional purchases to use. What exactly did I pay for? The ability to do exactly what the free hue app does? Why not just make this a free version and add the option to buy the features in a pro app? Seriously disappointed, but hey at least the widgets are cool right?
Good app but notice a few issues Love the app but has a few small issues. I set up an alarm in the official hue app and imported it into hue pro but it doesn't import correctly. So I set up a schedule in Hue pro with a fade in light (simulate sunrise) and what it does is adds a timer to the hue bridge that turns off my lights at the end of the fade in. Very strange as I would think with an alarm that you wouldn't want this to happen. Also the app could use a UI update as it feels very dated.
Fine Miles ahead of the newest official app, but it looks pretty ugly and creating and modifying widgets is a headache. (Also, if I'm pinning something to my homescreen, it should also probably look a bit better.)
Better than the official app Generally love the app. Easier to use than the Philips app. Generally works well. Recently had the bulbs in most of my groups overwritten while playing with the individual bulb setting. My group specific widgets all broke too. I'm running Android N, however and it's not clear if that played into it. Will continue to use the app, and despite the glitches here and there, still love it. I am a little disappointed in the additional cost for the music stuff but though.
Great app Perfect. So much better than Phillips own app (that is, at least until v2 of Phillips app comes, then we will see). Great job. Thank you. Nexus 6P
Simple update I see you leave comments Ben...and you might see this and I love the app and payed for everything but the color flow in lava mode could use a touch up because it tends to go white when switching colors where the free app "onswitch" charges nothing and the color flow is way smoother meaning the transaction and no white color when switching....please fix :) hope you see this message!!! Thanks
I was sceptical at first. I was sceptical at first. Thinking it was unnecessary money if it does the same thing as the original app. But its really much better. The step by step instruction to connect from out of home is very important cos otherwise every time have to connect to WiFi just to switch off the lights
Way better than the stock app! This app is what the stock app "should" have been like. Kudos to you guys for making a quality app!
Buggy. Randomly changes your color settings I had to delete it so that it would stop changing the light colors and defaults randomly. The problem started when I bought lava lamp and music. I turnd those apicalications off but they still kept triggering at random and changing my default settings on the the main app. So I would always wake up to random colors.
OK but group support is poor Fine if you want to set all your bulbs at the same time but there seems to be no way of making the widgets apply to specific groups.
Best hue app I've bought a few hue apps, figured a few dollars is whatever to get the best out of the hundreds spent on the lights. This app has the best widget functionality. Presets and a widget are the best way to use your hue lights. Spend some time finding what combos you like most, and make a bunch of presets so you don't have to constantly adjust the lights. With the widget included in this app you can easily fit 10/20 widgets, plus power and dimmer controls all in a small portion of your screen. No app needed
Great app. Responsive developer This app continues to improve. The developer is responsive to questions and bugs. It's the best Hue app I've found. Definitely worth the money.
Great Aftermarket Hue App Great app! I definitely prefer this app over the official Philips Hue app. Totally worth the money. A few quick questions: I don't see anywhere in your app to configure the Hue switches (dimmer switch/tap switch) and had to download the official app to pair the switch to my lights. Will you be adding support for those? (or did I just miss the page in the app?) Also, I've noticed that the widget doesn't keep track of light statuses if the lights are manipulated using any other method.
Thanks for the quick fix. The new update has me back in action. Thanks!
Good so far Any way to integrate with Amazon echo? As of now, you can't voice command hue to turn on and off group names.
Best app for Hue Lights I've found. Absolutely love this app. EASILY superior to the official Philips app for Hue, and constantly being improved. Intuitive to use and easy to configure for alarms, schedules, scenes etc. No hesitation in giving it 5 stars.
pretty much perfect now! I prefer this over the official Hue app, and the fact that the developer constantly keeps the app updated if any bugs appear is a great sign! =) Ben, the developer, answered my queries within a day and solved my issue! definitely worth spending money for this app! ??
Good app It's a decent app for controlling hue bulbs. My only complaint is that there is no way to reorder the bulbs and so the representation of the preset doesn't match what the preset actually is. Not really a big deal but can be confusing when setting a preset.
Is awesome, when it works I love the app, I much prefere it to the stock hue app, however recently it will not connect my bridge. Ive tried resetting it, uninstalling and reinstalling the app Still doesnt work. My regular hue app connects with no issue but pro will not find my bridge
Want Hue wall switch support This a great app, much better than the Hue app, but I would like to be able to use the Hue wall switches that I just purchased. Is there something I'm not seeing on here, or is this something that could be added in a future update?
Amazing So much better than the Phillips app even their new one. I downloaded this for my Galaxy S5 when I still had it and now on my iPhone and its practically flawless. It seems to me though that the music function doesn't work as well on the iPhone because the mic just isn't picking up the sound well but maybe its my imagination. Don't know if there is a way to change the mic sensitivity for the iPhone. Any1 kno y the free (crappy) android tablet I got won't work with this App or Phillips?
Some features not working via internet Scheduler work just when comnected locally. Would be great if it would display current status of each commected blub (brightness/rgb or something). Otherwise nice app.
Good stuff. Works as intended on an HTC One M8.
This guy is good! Philips made a change which caused Hue Pro to lock-up. It was fixed in about a day! Thanks for that! And, oh yeah... This is one fantastic app.
Amazing! Worth 99 cents! Don't worry about downloading the Hue app made by philips
Fixed! App is working again! Still my go-to Hue control app!
All you need This is right here!!!
My music is not too quiet I downloaded this just for the music feature and it doesn't even work. I have my phone directly in front of quality BOSE speakers and yet somehow both the bass and treble are too quiet? I don't think so.
Best Hue App Best Phillips Hue app for beginners and power users. Author is constantly improving and soliciting feedback from users.
Good! An Android wear support would be perfect.
Update = White screen
App update Today's app update just turns into a white screen when opening the app. I use this app every day so would like to have it be fixed ASAP plz
Today's update broke my existing installation, but I cleared data and imported all of my settings from a backup and all is good now. I've tried other Hue control apps and keep coming back to this one.
Awesome with many features that are great yet practical, which is what contributes to the app being great. I love my HUE lights and this is the HUE app i use as my main HIR operator.
Stopped working after update App broke after latest update. Disappointing as I paid for a non working app!
Philips Hue this is how it's done. Straightforward. Fast. And still beats Philips Hue gen 2 app. Love the groups, and ease of editing, setting up a scene, deleting option, Editable widget , precision light adjustment. Paired with Hue Pro Tasker and On Swith it's unbeatable.
Amazing Love this app and product. Just one thing please can you make it that u can use app on locked screen as keep having to unlock phone to sort light out. Some sort of widget app.
Fantastic App! I should have started with this! A few more features would be nice (maybe borrowed from other places) like candlelight, fireworks and strobe (similar to hue disco).. Also maybe Ambilight integration (similar to the Philips app).. Then I could scrap all of my apps for this. Would be good to have an option for keeping the current dimmer settings when changing presets.. And a colour scroll scene would be cool too! Just a few ideas.. Keep up the amazing work!!
Amazing app, broad, customizable features! This has been my go-to Hue app for the year I've had the bulbs. I've got over 20 hue fixtures scattered throughout my household. To control all of them right from my home screen is a great advantage, and the great widget array makes it happen in a fluid and customizable way. Plenty of awesome features to explore.
Best Hue app, but thats not saying much! It has one of the best interface! And its music function is cool! Ny biggest problem with this app is that if you leave it open, your battery will be dead by morning, even when the battery is at 100%... they say they fixed it, but that seems to not be true!
This is the best substitute for the official Hue app I have found, and in many ways it is better than the official app. I primarily use it for the custom widget which lets you have multiple rooms and simple on/off dim up and down buttons. Recently upgraded to Android 7.0 and had an issue with crashing, the dev was quick to answer, knew a workaround (the bug is in the OS, not Hue Pro) and had me up and running again in no time.
The widgets work for 1 colour change and then quit working entirely. App actually caused a big issue with my lights and I had to go back and reinstall stuff to even get my lights to work again. All the names I used to save my timers are encrypted which really sucks. It's not that great.
So much better Can't believe how much better this app is compared the stock phillips app. Would have paid double, no triple, yeah triple. The developer even responded to my support email same day.
Great app Loaded with features. Would love to see this expanded to other zigbee interfaced lights (ie Osram Lightify) but no points docked for my wishlist, love the app!
Newest version is quite broken. It removes bulbs from groups constantly and turns lights on randomly. I tried to email developer prior to leaving bad review, but the site no longer exists.
Simply the best hue app I've tried just about all the range for hue lights but this is my favorite and use it 99% of the time. If you have hue lights you won't regret downloading this great app
Weak. Make it work. The basic one from Philips works. Why doesn't this? Especially cuz I paid for it. Nice. Make it work.
Best control of any hue app This has the best UI of all the hue apps I've tried. Linked with the hue pro tasker app it allows for all sorts of automation too. The music option works well and would be great if it could be incorporated into the presets. The design is a little old fashioned but that is ok and oddly common with hue apps.
Program switches? Can't find it anywhere in this app. In some regards, a step up from other apps, because you at least easily set color and brightness to numerical numbers, instead clusters of "close" brightness/color determined by precision of a finger swipe.
In light of the new HUE app inability to support same bulbs across multiple groups and the original HUE app is NOT compatible with Nougat. Hue Pro is your answer. I was so mad at Phillips until I found Hue Pro. Thank you Benjamin, as more users move into Nougat and Phillips continues to cheapen their HUE app - HUE Pro is the answer. thank you
Forget other Hue apps! Buy this! Found all my newly installed lights other apps did not easy to adjust room name locations and colors
Awesome! Perfect app! Now widgets are transparent and I couldn't be happier. <3
Woke me up two times in the middle of the night by automatically turning on the lights
Cant connect Cant connect to bridge, even though it can see it. Reoccurring problem
Awesome with many features that are great yet practical, which is what contributes to the app being great. I love my HUE lights and this is the HUE app i use as my main HIR operator.
??? The away function on original hue app is trouble free when to set this app is much more complicated!!!
Awesome app, if you have a tablet as well you will really like the
Hue pro. Love it Great app. Worth the cost. Power user friendly.
Excellent Developer Support I recently encountered an error, "Error 350", with the latest version of the app, 2.3.7. I contacted the developer and received a response within minutes! He provided the instructions I needed to update the out-of-date firmware on my Hue bridge which immediately resolved the issue. I couldn't wish for better support from an app developer. Previous Review: Hue Pro far outshines Philips' app in functionality and ease of use. My favorite features are the customizable widgets and the export/import functions.
EDIT: Great support, fixed my problem right away If you're seeing a lot of "Can't parse bridge lights" errors, make sure you update your bridge with the official Hue app!
One of the better apps for Hue. I use it all the time in conjunction with the official Hue app. Lava option seemed to stall until I read the response below on excluding it from battery saver. Now Lava works fine.
Spectacular. A very well thought out app with tons of features. Completely puts Philips own app to shame!
Better than Philips app Wish there was an easier / more efficient way to remote manage
Perfect. Forgot about Philips app. This is the app you need to take full advantage of your lights.
Way better than Philips app And a responsive developer!
Loving it! This is by far the best ap out for Hue lights. Took a few to set everything up, but now everything is on auto pilot. Fyi, if you are having an issue connecting out of home, make sure you put the port at the end of your ip address. Example xxx.xxx.xx.xxx:80 Mine would not work without the port typed into the field. Thanks dev for an awesome ap.
Great app for lamp/scene managment Perfect for when complete control is required over a large amount of lights/scenes. Offers detailed management in a clean and consice (albeit slightly outdated) interface. Also greatly appreciate the backup functionality and the import/export scenes from/to bridge option. Only thing missing is the ability to programme Hue Tap switches (for which at the moment the Philips v1 app is required).
Awesome app So much love has been put into this app, it is incredible. It is the little things like being able to restore a custom widget that was deleted accidentally. Or just managing bulbs and groups in a logical way. This should be the default Hue app!
Wow. Really opens up the potential of the Hue bridge. . Awesome app. I was rather disappointed with the Hue bridge until I got this app. A bargain at the price. Well laid out and easy to use. Makes the free Philips app look like an incomplete afterthought. I'm looking forward to installing the companion Tasker app.
