Brilliant This should be a standard feature on all devices. Simple, unobtrusive, and so far very effective. My only regret is I didn't install something like this years ago. UPDATE: Just done a long drive at night and noticed there was MUCH less glare from my wife's mobile bleaching my night vision from the passenger side, and a hardly visible soft glow from the kids' tablets in the back. Much safer.
So happy to have this app installed now, wish i had it installed before, Amazing work guys. Looking forward to buying this but interface is little confusing. I was tweaking the settings like display brightness etc without knowing what to do. After i saw its notification tab, i pressed AUTO. Now it works like charm. Although I still don't know which to opt in - sun, always etc. It would be nice if there is a recommended settings ready to apply, since many doesn't know which light is good at each times.
It seems so silly but having the hue change to a more red spectrum as the day goes by really reduces the strain on your eyes. I also love that it allows you to dim the light below what your phone does on its own. It also makes the screen a little less enticing so its much easier to make yourself put it down for bed. Great app!
Works great for as long as the app is open, but when you switch to another app the screen returns to it's normal colour temperature. I already had an app that makes sure I can't use any other app: it's called 'switch off phone'. Edit: Setting the Twilight switch in Settings - Power saving - Protected apps to ON solved the problem. Apparently this is a known issue with Huawei phones. I have therefore upgraded the rating from one to four stars.
Great app, no ads which I like, and free permission requirements. At first I didn't like it because it asked for location but once you play with the app you realize it's so it can track when the sun will rise where you are to adjust the screen. Two thumbs up!
Effective, but there is a potential drawback if you have a device with an AMOLED screen like the galaxy s7. Devices like these can selectively turn off pixels when they are black, resulting in higher contrast and energy savings. Twilight adds red instead of subtracting blue from your display, so it prevents the AMOLED from going truly black.
