Good ideas but bugs are frustrating I have the widget set to turn groups of lights on and off. Occasionally the button is unresponsive. I have all of the groups on this app set to maximum brightness. Quite often the widget turns the bulbs on with minimal power. Then I have to open the app, open the group and slide the brightness bar. This makes the widget useless. The idea of the widget controlling separate groups without affecting other groups is great, but it needs to be bug free.

works.. buggey though Had the app on a Note3. worked alright.. even with Tasker Integration and Lifx. Got a Samsung S5 and then all the bugs showed up. Tasker works.. but sometimes it seems to hang. It can't seem to get the brightness right. Sometimes you set it to 1% brightness and it somehow sets it to 5% or a different colour even. First setup it took time as it kept hanging with setting up the groups. Sent several emails to the developer.. he answered the first one... but not heard anything for 2 months.. seems he's given up on the app and doesn't seem to care.

Unstable Crashed 4 times within 5 minutes. Looks like a nice app, but can't fully test without paying the unlock fee, and I'm not going to spend $5+ on an app which crashes so often

Doesn't work with scenes using multiple colors It's a good app just to turn on and off the Philips HUE lamps, but if you create more complex scenes, for example, two or three colors in the same group it doesn't work. The commands starts to take a long time to respond, and when they respond, the lamps, the color and the intensity are all wrong. I've paid for the pro version (expensive app!) just to try the tasker integration with the HUE. It works, but as good as a free IFTTT, because sadly, you can only use it in a trusty way to power on or off. I hope this problems can be fix soon, for now I'll have to keep the oficial HUE app in use.

Best LIFX App This app is so much better than the LIFX app. I know you have to pay to unlock some of the features but it's worth it. It's more responsive and you can do more. Can't wait to see more features added.
