Works alright on a day to day basis but utter, complete fail for the ball drop on NYE. App stated midnight had already happened when it was 4 minutes away. Second year in a row ball drop sync failed. I tested and previewed several times before but complete mess on NYE.
Does not work consistently Tried using the 'Ball Drop' feature. Tested several times and it did not work consistently. Only triggered 2 out of 12 lights at the big moment before the app crashed.
Cool way to freak out people. Big issue I have is each time I open the app to use it the app tells me I need to tap the hue base, which is annoying is hell and I refuse to keep doing it so please fix this
Nailed it! We rang in 2017 using this app and it worked a treat! The ball drop feature is awesome and really enhanced our new year celebrations!
Kinda suxs Effects are sporadic and short lived, plus they want 2.89 to buy new ones that you dont even know what they do.
This app is trash Disconnects from the bridge every time I use it. Trash.
