Hey everyone! Over the holiday weekend I brought a big update to an older app of mine: Chroma for Hue. It's a macOS controller for Philips Hue bulbs (and now compatible Zigbee bulbs linked to a Philips Hue bridge). This update finally brings Chroma to High Sierra, adds Scenes support, and includes a number of bug and performance fixes. If you use Philips Hue bulbs I hope you'll give Chroma a chance– and if you find Hue doesn't work with your lights, please let me know the model here or on Twitter so I can make a note of it!

@aaronykng Thanks for making this!! Have you used the Philips Hue workflow for Alfred by chance? Curious to know how this compares to that. I've used that for the past year, and it's great to see a dedicated app option for controlling Hue bulbs as well.

Great job !! Why did you chose Mac OS over Windows ? Can it be used with windows ? How’s it gonna work

@ayush_chandra Thanks! I originally made it because I just needed a controller for myself (which is why it's on macOS)

You just created another reason for me to change my light bulbs to Philips Hue.

Was up for buying this as the current Hue app I use is a bit meh but I can't as it's only compatible with High Sierra for some reason, I'll have to wait till I get around to doing the upgrade (heard a lot of bad stories for HS users that have put me off the upgrade)
