Overall good app. It works. The manual shows some settings that appear to no longer exist in the app unfortunately (same color is the specific one I'm looking for). I also think it would be highly useful to have a "return to previous state" option when you end the strobe/disco... Currently using this to create a celebratory scene to flash my team colors when we score. When I end it, I'm stuck with readjusting the lights from where I stopped the strobe to where they were prior to the strobe.

I've had loads of fun with this app! The occasions for practical application are few and far between but the results are great. I do have a few criticisms for the overall experience, but it seems these drawbacks cannot be attributed to this app but rather the technical limitations of Phillips Hue hardware e.g. if you're controlling the bulbs with Alexa, Hue app, and this Disco app, you can get input conflicts. There's also a little latency behind the music. But unlikely to be the App so, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

This is THE app I've been searching for. I quickly grew tired of the limitations of the standard Philips Hue App. I have 12 Hue Color + White bulbs on my party patio. I wanted an app that simply sequence the lights as one group. I've spent MOST of my time within this app in the mood settings. The disco portion is super neat but most of the time, it's just me chilling out on the patio in the evening hours. If I'm hosting a party, the disco tab is the perfect place to control my lights. As of 03-15-2019, Philips released their Hue Discover Outdoor Color + White lights. They are nice and bright, at 2300 lumens. I purchased 3 of them so now my Hue Disco App controls all 15 of my outdoor patio lights. However, I've run into an issue. Hue Disco controls all of my 15 lights perfect from my phone. The issue is this: When I run the mood routine within the Hue Disco App, it plays beautifully until my phones' screen darks out. Once my screen darks out on my phone, the Hue Disco App immediately stops and freezes in mid-cycle, leaving me with a single color on my bulbs. As soon as I "wake" my phone, the Hue Disco App starts back up again. Any suggestions?
