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.

  • Won’t Play Music Anymore

    By AppleAttorney
    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

    By Mofingus
    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. 😢

  • Terrible UI

    Terrible UI.
  • Does not work...

    By Lawenforcer
    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!!

    By Dmsdd45
    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.
  • It's been two years....

    By Bound_Love
    Two years since the last update... That was to support ios8. We're now on ios11 and have lack of communication with most of my phones music. This app was great back than, even make me want more lights! Now it's just a complete hassle, this app needs a new UI and support. It's a shame really, Phillips HUE still has this as a great app to use with your lights. But stay away, untill an update, meanwhile this app will just sit on my home screen untill I see an update, if there ever is one...
  • Doesn’t work as described.

    By baspears81
    I downloaded this app to use with my Hue lights, allowed access to my Apple Music library and only a handful of songs show up, out of which, only 3 actually play sound. This is by far the worst app I have ever downloaded in the App Store.
