Like surround sound for your eyes Edit: app no longer works. Is unable to find hue bridge. One of the best features (and major selling point) of hue is currently non-functional. Original 5 star review follows: Amazing cinematic experience. If you have powersaving set to turn WiFi off it will stop working, of course, when android settings set to hold the WiFi connection it works perfectly.
GET TO WORK PHILIPS It's been 3 months already, I have been patiently waiting for an update but none so far. It just doesn't work with the new firmware. Waste of money on an Ambilight TV. Waste of money on Hue. Shame on you philips
Hate it Not bad, but battery hog (27 % battery usage, ~3h 20m 55s CPU total), doesn’t work properly if you delete lights from the bridge, and contact/feedback form doesn't work. Exemplary permissions (none!), no ads, totally secure. Update: Suddenly doesn't work anymore (can't connect to bridge).
White balance adjustment would make it better When watching movies, I have my hues set to a warm, dim white to resemble the atmosphere in a proper cinema. I wish that this app would let the non-colored light be a little more warm to create a nicer atmosphere when using ambilight. I only really want the hues to change color when there's an obviously strong color, otherwise I would prefer a user configurable warm white and not the cold white used now. Also I wish that the latency would be smaller since the hues are always at least half a second behind.
Not working anymore, abandoned app! This used to be a good working app to connect your ambilight tv with your hue lamps. But recently the app doesn't find the hue bridge anymore even though the regular hue app works just fine. There's no answer from support and the app looks abandoned.
Used to love it Since the bridge update the app won't find it anymore. The strange thing is that all other Third party app's still work. Please fix it or tell us if someone is working on it.
