Description

Ambify - the Hue enabled jukebox turns music into light using Philips Hue Smart Bulbs. Being the first of it's kind, Ambify combines the simplicity of a jukebox with the endless new possibilities offered by Philips' Hue System. It's a s simple as starting the app, selecting your lamps and choosing a playlist. Ambify then applies our nifty algorithms to analyse and visualise your music in real-time using the lamps you've previously selected. Here's a short overview: * Beautifully designed music player * Universal - looks great on iPhone and iPad * Access music in your iPod library * Real-world music visualizer using Philips' Hue * Just works - smart algorithms adapt to your music * FX Section - tweak visualizer settings as you like * AirPlay - use the visualizer while sending music to an AppleTV or other AirPlay device - no problem! * Color Themes - create different color themes for different types of music Requirements: * a Philips Hue starter-kit (or advanced setup) is required for music visualisation * Ambify works best with the following devices: iPad2, iPad3, iPad4, iPad Air, iPad Air 2 or iPad mini iPhone4s, iPhone5, iPhone 6, iPhone 6+ or iPodTouch 5thGen Older devices may be too slow for Ambify to work correctly.

    this app is great if: you have a Mac computer or laptop. this app is terrible if: you except to get any of the same features on ur mobile ios. I bought this for my iPhone & really can’t do anything other than play the music I had downloaded. it syncs great with a slight delay you’d expect. But the interface your forced to use instead of Apple music is really buggy & just not a pleasant user experience. I’m willing to wager if used on a Mac the experience & added features would be amazing however on mobile it is not worth the money. below are examples 📱Mobile iOS : Local library ✔️ iTunes Match & Apple Music ❌ Streaming services ❌ 3rd party apps ❌ Airplay receiving ❌ MIDI support ❌ Ableton support ❌ Airplay output ❌ 🖥 💻 MAC:Local library ✔️ iTunes Match & Apple Music ✔️ Streaming services ✔️ 3rd party apps ❌ Airplay receiving ✔️ MIDI support ✔️ Ableton support ✔️ Airplay output ✔️ see why it makes all the difference??🙄 hope this helps someone, ttyl

    Terrible airplay connectivity. Apple Music subscription is worthless with it. Developers should give refunds no questions asked for such a bad product. Apple iOS apps should refuse to even offer it.
  • 2 star reviews are because of user error

    I’ve tried all of the other music apps like iLightShow and hue sync and tbh they provide a terrible light show in comparison to ambify. Ambify takes the music to another level. The colors are better, they flash the lights on and off, and they genuinely sync the lights perfectly with the music. It really is amazing and everyone I’ve shown has been floored at how beautiful it makes the music and they go and buy hue lights just for the app. Really that’s the reason I got hue lights!
  • Won’t Play Music Anymore

    Not sure what happened, but the latest version won’t play any songs (purchased, Apple Music, etc.). The songs load in the app. But when selected to play, they just don’t. I wouldn’t spend my money on the app until there’s an update after the date of this review.
  • App does not find hub with iOS 11.x

    App just does not work. When launched it searches for the hue hub and never responds again, nor does it time out with an error. No way to manually configure the hue hub. Relaunching caused the search loop to begin again. Tried resetting the hue hub. The hub works fine for all other apps. Submitted a ticket on 01/01/2018 and have yet to get any sort of response beyond the automated “Got your email, we will respond within 24hrs” message. Don’t buy the app. You’ll never see your $2.99 again. 😢

    I cannot get any sound when I try to play a song and for some reason it won’t even allow me to play my full play list just random songs are even listed on the list within this app. Have emailed developer and waiting for a response. Disappointing!
  • Best music app for Hue lights!!

    Don’t let the negative reviews fool you into missing out on this one. Those guys must not have their equipment setup correctly. I setup my playlists in the Music app then use Ambify to AirPlay to my AppleTV which is connected to my home stereo system. It turns my house into a night club!! My kids absolutely love it and it takes house parties to a whole new level!! One piece of advice I would offer is to keep in mind this app is connecting multiple other apps and services (Music, Hue, AirPlay). It’s been my experience that when I have an issue with something not working as expected, the problem is usually in one of the other programs and not Ambify.
