Review by lI Mike Tech lI

This works Great! Best Hue controller for Mac! - After reading some of the bad reviews i was worried. But it looked so well desighned i was temted to buy it and try it any way. And I’m glad i did! I linked it up with my hub and played with it for a bit and everthing works great! No problems at all. So im writing this review for anyone els who was worried from the bad reviews like myself. 200$ for a amazing light kit, and this 3$ app is well worth the money if you want to just click the menu to turn down the lights and play with the settings vs pulling out the app on a phone or ipad to do the same thing.

Review by Mr Hasselhoff

Horrible - The only command that makes the lights work with this app is All Lights On or All Lights Off. If you want to individually control the color or brightness, or even turn specific lights on or off this app doesn't work as the picture shows in the description. RIP-OFF!

Review by Røskva

does not work! - The app says "unable to connect to bridge" and if i select preferences… nothing happens. Charging for this app is like stealing. COMPLETELY USELESS! (I have installed "QuickHue" instead. Not flawless, but at least it works and it is free)

Review by tocamelo

Really?? - Does anyone plan on spending $4 for the new version of Hue Menu, saying this one hardly worked. At least offer a launch day discount to win back everyone you burned with version 1.

Don’t waster your money $$$ - This app has never worked for me. Any attempted update has not worked either. I agree with the other users. This app should be REMOVED from the app store.
