    I've decided to write a revised review after having used the app. This app rocks! It is actually better than the official Phillips Hue app I used on my iPad. Big kudos to the developer! I actually bought the (optional) in-app purchase of $3,99 to support him and would have paid more if there was an option. What I love about the app is the richness and ease of use. Being able to pin scenes to my Stattscreen actually makes this app more effective than the original. I also love the ability to write NFC tags. Just tapping the tag with your phone is enough to activate a certain scene or other action. And the built-in disco feature is cool too. REALLY GREAT JOB!

    Great hue app. The one that I use most often. Could use work for management of 10+ lights, but a great start.

    Way better than the other apps, paid for one when I first bought the hue lights but later found this one. Highly recommended!

    App is very good, but the Voice command is impossible. "hue goodnight" will not work with cortana. She thinks i say "you goodnight". So 5* if the voicecommand is changed
