        Given the 💷 price of the scenes, it's just impossible to justify the gamble of purchasing them before seeing how the final lighting product/scene appears. There's no doubt in my mind I would have purchased a significant amount (if not all) of the scenes if I had been able to briefly test them out first to be sure I'd have use for them & that they'd fit in with my extensive (house-wide) Hue setup. It's unfortunate too because had I not been previously burnt in the past with paid for / untestable scenes that turned out to be totally useless and of poor quality, I may well have forked out for the entire set of scenes in this app - but then it is entirely plausible that I would still be feeling burnt by the app's lack of delivery of quality lighting scenes that have no place in my setup. I guess I will never know!
        Forgive the lengthy comment but I feel strongly that Hue lighting scenes apps should allow for testing of the scenes prior to purchase (or alternatively allowing for a refund within 60 minutes of purchase).
        Thanks guys - nice app with the potential for greatness with increased attention to detail & user feedback.
        All the best!

        Please, yes! I want so many scenes, but at $1.99 each, I’d like to know they at least come close to how they appear in my imagination!

        I agree that the scenes should be sampled prior to purchase. Also, developer needs to address the “rent vs buy” issue. After reading reviews I won’t buy any scenes if they can simply just disappear.

        Don’t you guys want revenue coming in?

        Cool app otherwise.

        The reason I don’t buy certain ones is because I can’t see what it looks like.
