Release notes

Walk into your living room, play some nice music, and simply say "Set lights to Dusk". Or, place your phone near one of your wall paintings and watch the lights fade to the colors of your artwork.

Oni: Light Control allows you to set the color of the lights in your home* from your phone. Create customized Moods by adjusting the hue of each connected bulb for the rooms in your home. You can even use picture from your library as a color source. Simply say "Set lights to Purple Rain in the Bedroom" using your phone's built-in voice command feature, and watch your lights transition to match your mood. In addition to voice commands, Oni: Light Control can also trigger your Moods using inexpensive NFC tag stickers you can place on household items such as paintings or your bedroom nightstand - be creative.

With the scheduling feature, have your lights automatically set to your favorite Moods at specific times. You can also use NFC tags to put your lights to "sleep" after a certain number of minutes.

    The only thing this app needs to make it better (for me anyway) is a better way to make unique pinned tiles. I have several configs pinned as small tiles (no real use for larger ones) but I have to remember their location rather than be able to simply see our read it.

    Awesome, finally an app that works. Also needed some help - developer responded promptly and fixed it. Yay!

    Wow! This app works with Cortana. I just say "Set light in living room to general tv" and just like that, my general tv theme comes on. Very well done with this. Great app.

    This is a great app. Almost as good as the iOS app created directly by Philips.

    Great app please adjust the icons though including pins so they can use the transparent background in WP8.1 at least as an option. Thanks

    If you've switched to WP and have hue you must purchase. Only thing missing is ability to control over internet. Build that in and charge another buck. I'll pay it.

    Difficult getting it going and can't upgrade the hub from the app. But otherwise great
