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
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.
The app has a button for feedback which i used. Later I got an email from Philips TV saying that the feedback had ended up in the TV department and that i should go to the Hue department instead. How the f... do you mess up a feedback button within the app itself. That along with the shortcomings I had in my feedback is why i only give the app 3 stars.
Completely useless After firmware updates to both, app cannot connect to neither the bridge nor the TV. Dev's other app connects to the TV fine, and Philips' official Hue app finds the bridge so seems this app is just abandoned.
Cannot connect to new bridge firmware The app is totally useless if you want to connect for a first time with a bridge that is running the newest firmware. The app cannot find the bridge. Please update the app to be able to find the bridge, then I will re-rate accordingly.
Based on all the feedback we received we have increased functionality and made improvements to the Ambilight+hue app. Thanks for your feedback.
Please update your TV to the latest software.
The 2.0 version of the Ambilight+hue app contains the following updates:
- Improved algorithm, to make it faster and more stable;
- Tablet specific design;
- Various small improvements
