Has anyone had success with widgets in the latest release of the Philips Hue app. My widgets were working perfectly until last week's botched release. That release didn't even work and would crash on launch. I've since installed the latest update and it won't show my widgets. I've added and removed the Hue widget. With the Hue app, I go and select my preferred widgets. When I go back to the Notification Center, my Hue widget remains empty.

This had been my favorite iOS 8 widget, so it's incredibly frustrating.

Mine work fine, but one of them will now say "off" on the widget image itself. Because only one will do this, there's no way to see which ones are on if you use the widget for more than one (unless you look at the lights themselves). It's ridiculous and confusing. It's like they assume there is no way you will use more than one at a time. They should have left that alone and just stuck with the image color change for the ones that were one.

You're not alone about this.
