This is an OK app for free and a pretty good app when upgraded. I like the scenes, but wish there were a lot more. Edit: I lowered my rating from 4 to 3 due to it not having updates (scene additions), and no multi-hub support. You have to press the button on the hub if you want to switch. I even tried having one device tied to one hub, and one tied to another, but one would lose connectivity and ask me to press the button each time.

The party lights feature of this app is great. It makes your Hue lights flash multi colored to music much like at a bar or club with loud music. It doesn't have to be loud tho and not bar/club music. They react to sounds as simple as a cough. I haven't explored a lot of the rest, but it seems to be a lot of light themes like the original Hue app. Some, maybe all, with audio enhancements.

I was hoping for a party lights option that's not dependent on audio, but couldn't get it to work without music playing. I went pro to try out the Halloween setting, which is closer to what I'm looking for, but the lights are off for really long stretches on this setting (like color flash flash fade flash dark.......). Also seems like there may be some colors left off of this setting, I haven't seen green included in the cycle at all.

Hello Jamie,you mean the bright colors with short periods of dark just random without any music input? There the rainbow scene but this keeps the lights on.Also Party lights will work also if there is any sounds ion the room even talking etc.. or you can simply play a very low volume music on your phone to give it some
