Good app to sync Hue to Spotify. Family and friends love the light show when playing music and it gives the room a nice vibe. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because if the app is left on sync mode after done playing music, the lights can't be controlled by my home automation app. On some occasions I forgot to turn off the sync mode, only to wake up the next morning with all the other lights in the house turned off through a bedtime scene, except the Hue lights controlled by the app.

I really want to love this app and the sheer level of control it gives you over the light show. However, it has recently broken in functionality, being completely unresponsive to local songs added on Spotify that had worked literally the last time. Which is a shame, because all of a sudden one of my favorite songs will come on, but then the lights will stop. I would also suggest adding some form of on-screen metronome for setting up delay.

Hi Connor, unfortunately local songs added to Spotify never worked with iLightShow and can't be supported. I'll see if I can add a workaround. Feel free to contact me if you have any question.

Great app! Does what it says and is very easy to use and I'd definitely recommend it. I have both Hue and Nanoleaf lights set up and they work great. I knocked 1 start off because 1) sometimes timing is off, particularly if I'm casting music. 2) I wish it had more customizability (what's there is good though!) 3) It'd be nice if it supported Hue entertainment groups instead of only traditional Hue "rooms". Fwiw, a Windows app would be nice 🙂

Hi there, thanks for the review. Please contact me via email, it will be easier for me :) 1) how do you stream the music? 2) feel free to make some suggestions! 3) it's already available in the beta version of the app :) 4) I'll work on a windows app soon!
