    Excellent app the best hue app for WP. Would love to see some more tile/nfc options like toggles. So you have one tile/tag and if the lights are off it switches them on to a light scene if they are on it switches them off. An option to auto close the app after a tag/tile tap would be good too if possible especially for tags.

    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!
