What people say

quotation mark

Ambify goes to show that you can do much more with the connected lighting kit than initially meets the eye.

Darrell Etherington, TechCrunch

quotation mark

The Hue lights are neat, but adding a great gimmick like Ambify is what really puts them over the top.

Paul Kafasis, Rogue Amoeba

quotation mark

It's either the most fun thing to happen to your music since iTunes Visualizer, or the best way to self-induce a seizure. Or both.

Buster Heine, Cult of Mac

quotation mark

...the power of Ambify lies not in the fact that it seamlessly hooks into connected hue smart bulbs, but that it manages to produce the music based magic with minimal interaction from the end-user.

Paul Morris, Redmond Pie

If you have a Hue system, Ambify is a must download, and at just $2.99, it's a total steal.

Juli Clover, PadGadget

Ambify samples your music and dynamically changes your Hue lighting's color and intensity. It makes your walls dance. It makes your room party.
