What's New

-Updated to latest Hue SDK and fixed bridge connection problems.

App Description

Hue Candles creates a flickering candle effect for your Philips Hue lights.

Adjust the speed and variation of the flickering effect to your liking using the simple and minimal controls.


For the reviewers saying it's not like a candle, I think maybe you're expecting a faster flicker effect which is technically impossible. This apps sends updates to the Hue bridge as fast as you can without overloading it. The speed also depends on how many bulbs you have active.
