Really easy to have multiple tiles open of program, then seems not responsive to color changes. Easy set up, does the job no other Win phone app does.

Great with a few small bugs

Great App, although it makes MULTIPLE COPIES of each scene you have saved in other devices. The only problem I see. I have 12 of each "scene" in my Huetro home screen and keep having to delete them cause every time I open it, it duplicates everything again.

Essential Tool, Rough Edges

I have this app installed on my desktop to control my Hue Lux lamps. Occasionally, I find the lamps unresponsive to the app and must repeat the action. I'd dearly love to try it on my laptop, but the Windows Store says it will not work on it (and I can see no reason for that: 64-bit Win 10, dual-core, 4gb RAM with a WiFi connection).

seems to work great

what I would like to see is a movie mode... I would like to be able to point a cheap webcam at my tv / monitor and have the app detect colors and change the lights based on the movie.. there is a android app that will do this but it kills the phones battery and makes it as hot as the sun... a cheap webcam and a windows app would fix that problem.. figure out how to implement that into this app and ill throw cash at my screen and so will everyone else.

Best Hue App

Great App, just need bigger light buttons and an option to just have each individual light go on and off with no further options. But other than that is really good.

Great App (which is not the case of Windows Store ...)

This is a complete and really great app to control Hue. However, since the update, I can't reinstall the app on my W10, the Windows Store tells me that: "this app will not function on your system". I can't see why and I don't understand You do a great job NielsLaute Sincerely

Doesn't offer some of the features the Android app does (had to activate my new bridge and light from my friend's phone) but the interface is friendly enough. Best WinPhone Hue app for sure.

Who needs an official app from Philips?

Latest version of the app is great. Need more Ambiance settings though. Also would be nice to be able to select lights in Ambiance settings using a configured room instead of each individual light. Now if only the app could sync with something like Shazam to listen in for a movie and have an ambiance setting that matches the film.
