Android wear and widgets! Works well on wear. Widgets have a nice clean look. The app is much simpler and faster than the Philips app if you just want to turn off a light. Occasionally FC's on the watch but still useful enough to be my favourite light control app. If you want automation and timers, there's other apps for that, but if you just want a quick way to switch a light/group or change colors this is a great option.

Dissapointing The wearable 5.x update malfunctioned my bridge. App used to have voice control for my wearable device, now that's gone too.

Good until Recently I liked this app, especially the widgets. My wife and I could easily control the lights, but that has changed. Recently it is almost impossible for either one our phones to connect to the hub through this app... Other apps, no problem. Not sure what changed but disappointing. 5 stars until now! ***UPDATE*** After some router changes and firmware update it seems to be back on track... Still evaluating whether this was hardware or APP related... If it was simply hardware I'll bump rating to 5 Stars!
