Version 2.2.1

Prepare to enjoy the Philips Hue APP OF THE MONTH!

We have listened to your feedback and made some updates based on issues that some of you reported. For some movies the audio detection would actually make a recipe become “out of sync” (which is the exact opposite of what that is supposed to do). So, audio detection is OFF by default now. The new “Ear” icon lets you enable it and force a sync.

Because we disabled audio detection we added a “scrubber” that lets you manually set the time of the lighting recipe anywhere in a movie.

Plus, a few more updates to make for a better app experience:
* Updated FAQs to help you start making lighting recipes
* Ignores total running time settings (if you leave it at zero, the recipe will still play)
* Updated the play counter to recognize short (less than 5 minute) music videos
* Additional prompt to confirm action when sharing a recipe to be public
* Minor bug fixes to the original 2.2 release
