Philips Hue Smart Bulb Widget For iOS 8 Teased

It hasn’t been long since we have set eyes on Apple’s HomeKit framework but there are still some developers out there who cant help but wonder what they can do with this framework. We certainly agree that HomeKit was an amazing idea, bringing all sorts of home automation into one app, but we also have to agree that this wasn’t the only amazing thing in iOS 8 at WWDC. Though Philips was name-checked during the HomeKkit announcement but the Philips Hue developers have been worried by iOS 8′s new widgets and they do have a reason to worry.

Having interactive widgets live in the iOS 8 Notification Center promises to change the way we use our devices, and Philips knows just that. So keeping all these widgets in mind, a picture was posted at Philips Hue Dev Twitter account which was basically a screenshot of a concept for what the Hue widget could look like when iOS 8 ships later this year. The Hue app is going to require an update if it is going to take any advantage of the widgets. But we are happy that the developer is already thinking where to put the iOS 8 features to use.

The concept has brought forth a Notification Center widget which we can call the less awe-inspiring idea. This is going to constitute of a row which will contain all the shortcut buttons and this widget would basically allow users to set their lights to reflect presets based on the button they tap. So this means that they no longer have to waste time in launching the Hue app properly.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
