    Yes! Just purchased the starter kit yesterday and set it up.....can control it with my iPhone, iPad and my MacBook. Strictly speaking, you will control it online via the Hue site rather than with a 'controller' as with Sonos.

  • There is an app in the App Store named 'Colors for Hue' that allows you to control the lights, but doesn't quite have all the preset functionality of the iPhone app. Its in development, so I expect to see the developer roll out new features for it.

    If you're a developer, there is great documentation on the web-based api the bridge puts on your network, there is a google group discussing it, and open source projects in several languages.
