Fantastic app to control Hue lights. My favorite feature is the ability to create custom animations that can change color and intensity of lights over time. I have a sunrise one that starts dim and red/orange, then gradually changes to bright and white. Worked great until the recent Android 8.1 update. Now although I can connect to the bridge and use the app just fine, widgets no longer work. When I create a widget to use, clicking on an action in the widget does not run that action until I actually open the Hue Pro app. I am hoping the developer can help me with the problem, they seem responsive and helpful so far.
The app is more functional than the Philip's app. It works well enough. However, the interface is one of the most dated and ugly UI's I have used in used in the past two years. The developer should invest in an interface designer. The functionality is mostly there but patting yourself on the back for that is like patting yourself on the back for getting a C+ among a bunch of C- and F students. I docked one star for the interface. The other star was docked because I have to use the Tasker app to schedule an animated scene. I am guessing this is due to the lack of an API, but that doesn't matter to the end consumer. The fact remains that I have to use another app to schedule what should be basic functionality and that process is not consumer friendly. Overall this app is a good effort with potential. I'll add the stars back when these issues are addressed.
Used to work perfectly for yrs, now after update on Galaxy Note8, cannot connect to the bridge no matter what I do. Connection times out. Wife's Galaxy S7 Edgeworks fine... she hasn't updated. The iOS version works fine on my iPhone. Update broke it. Fix it! Can't use my Hue lights. THANK YOU Prismatic LLC., you now suck. You'll never get a cent from me again, unless this is fixed ASAP!
I prefer this over the official Hue app! but is there any way to reorder the bulbs in the list so that they can be selected more easily? I have 27 lights and picking them for grouping is such a painful process.
I'm back to rating this app 2 star the bulbs seem to have a mind of their own now... even with supports help and troubleshooting certain lights keep flickering on and off I cannot set task for them to turn on at certain times or when connected to Wi-Fi they won't turn on... very annoyed afyer paying $200 and stuck in a dead end
This is good work. I wanted it for the widgets, and it pulls them off nicely on all of my android phones/tablets. Quick advice for those that may have had issues with the widgets connecting - make sure Hue Pro isn't an app the battery management can control.
