It's an app for android that adjusts your phone screen according to sunrise and -set. The app turns the screen darker and gives it a red-ish tint in the evenings, making it easier to read without hurting your eyes, aswell as makes it easier to fall asleep after. I haven't found it using any extra battery either, definitely recommend it!
Edit: For those of you with computers or apple devices, f.lux is the way to go.
Twilight. I'm convinced I sleep better at night, especially when combined with f.lux on my computer and a LIFX bulb in my desk lamp.
EDIT: Link to the app on the Google Play store, in case anyone else wants to find it. Evidently it isn't available on iOS, but check out a similar app called Bluelight Filter. I don't even know if that one is available, but hopefully someone more Apple-savvy can find it.
There's an app called twilight which tints your screen a different shade for the time of the day, I've found it's very useful to making me not stay up late on my phone
There's an app called Twilight that filters the type of light coming from your screen so that it won't keep you up.
There's a version for desktop too, called Flux.
To get the questions out of the way (and promote other discussion)
1) Yes. Nova Launcher Prime and Tesla Unread. That's one way I'm aware of!
2) I've heard Twilight is pretty good
Speaking of blue light, i thought I'd bring this up. Try using f.lux for your computer, or twilight on android (I don't know about IOS).
What this app does is, reducing the blue light on your screen, it helps relaxing your eyes and makes you go to sleep easier, i really like these two apps, very important.
Twilight. It filters out blue light based on what time of day it is. This really helps for late night browsing without messing up your sleep (blue light late at night negatively affects your sleep). Here it is for android.
I use Twilight. Works pretty good. I set it up with specific hours instead of tracking sunset, and it becomes much less annoying. And oddly enough, no ads.
They make a version for Windows too, and probably other machines.
This is the issue for those who haven't seen it. (The dialog says "Screen overlay detected: To change this permission setting, you first have to turn off the screen overlay from Settings > Apps.")
Basically, it's a security feature. If you have an app currently using a screen overlay (i.e. using its "Draw over other apps" permission), like Twilight (a nighttime color-filtering app), you can't actually approve new permissions for other apps through the normal pop-up dialog. You either have to turn off the overlay and get the new app to re-request the permission, or manually set the permission.
I say this is a "security feature" because I believe the Android devs are concerned that a screen overlay app could obscure/overwrite the permissions dialog, and trick you into approving permissions. It would be nice to be able to say "I trust Twilight; don't let it stop these permission dialogs" but Android does not offer that level of granular control. So instead, I have the Twilight widget on my home screen, so I can quickly turn it off when I need to approve new permissions.
Not directly related, but I'm really enjoying <strong>Twilight</strong>, similar to <strong>f.lux</strong> (also awesome) for computers, it adjusts your screen to warmer tones gradually over time during the day so your natural sleep cycle is bothered less from staring at it in the evening and night. With prescribed stims and my hyperfocus always kicking in at night, it's really easy to lose track of time if I don't feel tired from staring at screens.
Staring at a screen isn't going to help you sleep. Installing an app like Twilight or CF.lumen can help by filtering out the blue light. Blue light prevents melatonin production. Melatonin is a hormone that regulates your sleep cycles.
It's called twilight.
The same effect can be achieved through free software.
Windows, Mac, iOS, Linux:
For Android I use an app called Twilight that is basically the same as f.lux. (I'm on my phone, so I don't have a link.)
Basically it lowers the blue light your screen puts out when it's dark out, which is supposed to help you sleep better. I have mine set to start transitioning when the sun starts setting, which is really convenient.
F.lux doesn't exist on Android, but Twilight does the same without root and then there is CF Lumen which requires root access
Or you could get f.lux.
It does mess with the colours a little bit after the sun goes down (or whenever you set it to), as it starts blocking out blue light. But after getting that for my pc, and Twilight for my phone I have a lot less trouble getting to sleep after being on either.
It's the android equivalent of the excellent f.lux for PC. Enables you to use your smartphone at night and before sleepytime without staying awake for hours. It blocks the blue light after sundown so your brain won't get "stay awake" impulses from the screen of your smartphone.
I consider myself a heavy user and I manage to get 4-5 hours out of the device. Screen brightness almost constantly at 70%.
Download Twillight to save your eyes at night (and battery).
I installed Cloudy ROM and its pretty stable for me. Oh and don't think that iOS isn't crashing, it's just not telling the user like Android does.
Since somebody else mentioned using melatonin to help you get to sleep:
f.lux on Windows, Mac OSX and Linux
Twilight on Android
Puts a red filter over the screen at designated times of the day to ensure the blue light from your phone or computer monitor is not going to disrupt melatonin production that naturally occurs once the sun is down.
Note that Twilight can interfere with app installations, and you may need to pause it to properly install apps. It can then be safely resumed.
With the next major update of Chrome OS, you'll be able to use Android apps. Android has the excellent Twilight app. If your delicate little eyes can hold out until then, you may be able to save yourself the trouble of selling your device.
Not an FA but someone who has random hours at a lab.
A) Sleep in a dark room, you need to trick your body to thinking that it's night. An eye mask helps, but there are photoreceptors on your skin that tells you "yo it's daylight."
B) High frequency light hitting your eyes may also tell your body that it's daytime. If you need to use electronic devices near bedtime you should install programs that reduce the frequency of light displayed depending on the time. On computers/laptops, f.lux is a good option. Twilight for androids. iOS devices ~9.0ish have a native built in "night mode" that attempts to reduce the amount of high frequency light.
C) Try to get used to sleeping with ear plugs. Blocking out ambient noise allows for a more restful sleep.
Yes actually. You can use twilight if you're having trouble getting tired before bed. Flux if it is your pc keeping you up.
If you have Android apps enabled on your Chromebook, it seems that Twilight is finally working on the stable Chrome OS channel. I've been using it every night for the last week or so!
Twilight is a blue light filter for Android, dimming the screen at night. Works similarly to f.lux and iOS Night Shift.
I used to do research on circadian rhythms. I'd recommend the usual:
use bedroom for sleep only
drink water and stretch before bed, the big dramatic "I'm sleepy" stretches you see actors doing on TV
exercise frequently, both resistance training and conditioning/cardio
some people feel that other supplements help them sleep, you can try them cheaply enough... various herbs, extracts, etc. I'm not going to recommend anything specifically because I don't know that any of these have been shown to have a beneficial effect on sleep.
But most importantly as far as circadian science goes:
avoid blue light after the sun goes down. Install F.lux on your computer and use the color slider to make color temperature warmer at night
use Night Shift Mode on iPhones / iPads, and Twilight on Android - make sure to set your zip code or enable location monitoring so it knows when to do its thing
supplement with melatonin, you can get this cheap at any drug store and some grocery stores or Target, etc.
eat well, get enough protein and look into getting more ALA, EPA, and DHA in your diet
do not consume caffeine or other stimulants too late in the day. I avoid them after ~5pm unless I need to be up late for some reason. Also, avoid becoming dependent on needing these to "wake you up" in the morning.
get serious about your routine of when you wake up, when you go to bed, and try to stick to it
temperature and humidity of your room can affect sleep quality and whether you're snoring or tossing & turning, find what works best for you
These are some tips of the top of my head. Google 'sleep hygiene' for some more detailed advice.
There's also an app for Android called Twilight that does that, but it's free. Idk if it's for Apple too, but I'll get a link real quick
Edit: So it seems it isn't on apple. Here is the link to the play store though.
Your phone should get Oreo soon enough and it has an option called "Night Light" in settings built-in, just wait a little, in meantime you can use apps like Twilight, it puts a tint on your screen and is inferior to built-in solutions or ones requiring root (for example, it will show up on screenshots you make).
I'm light sensitive too. I'd highly recommend flux for your laptop or desktop and twilight for your cell. It gets rid of the bright blue/higher frequency light and makes the screen more rosy red and less harsh. You can play with the settings to customize it. I have mine set to always be at nighttime levels.
Twilight: eine Android app die einen teil der Farben des Bildschirms filtert und so zu leichterem Einschlafen führt. Sehr empfehlenswert für Leute die vor dem Einschlafen noch auf dem smartphone zocken oder surfen!
I like the Kindle. The e-ink screen is fantastic, for me. As for the economic viability of it, I check out books via Overdrive.
In view of declutter though, I don't see the Kindle as a magical cure for clutter. The big problem I had was that I accumulated books (both physical and digital) and never actually read them. Consequently, I decided to keep 4-6 books on my Kindle at any given time. Any more than that and I'd spend more time looking for what to read rather than reading.
That all written, as sherlock_logic wrote, unless you prefer the e-ink screen, use the Nexus 9. And, possibly consider an app like Twilight.
(PC Alternative: f.lux)
Also, here's the link to Twilight if anyone wants to easily get that.
Here. - Sorry, couldn't find an iPhone version.
The twilight app is a must. The backlight on the nexus is really bright.
For those on android, you can use Twilight to help with the issue, which was based off the PC (and Mac/Linux) program F.lux, which is also apparently available on iOS devices now. Just remember that you're still staring at light and likely stimulating your brain by being on your phone and whatnot
2.5 years playing and this is my first one. Sure, it could have been crit or speed ( :( ) but at least it wasn't flat HP.
Before you ask, the color is because I use the twilight app.
I'm using this at the moment, trying to decide if it or Twilight are better. I was thinking it may save serious battery on OLED displays too (in theory both the brightness and the colour filter, since blue LEDs use something like 4x more power).
Linkit tässä, niille jotka eivät tiedä ohjelmia: F.lux ja Twilight Androidille.
Tuo kyseinen käärmeöljy vuotaa joka paikaan. Kannabis alkaa olla yhtä ärsyttävä kuin joku kookosöljy.
> dark mode
In case you didn't know: Twilight App is filtering your phones colours according to sunrise and sunset, you don't need a dark mode anymore with this.
Red-shifting your display will also help greatly.
F.lux (Windows/Mac/Linux) and Twilight (Android) will do this for you automatically depending on the time of day and your location
Amazon is advertising a pretty simple piece of software. Any android tablet or phone can be set up for low-blue light with some software. I've used Twilight in the past.
Now I just use some cheap prescription sunglasses with an orange 50% tint :)
If you really want a pretty personal Android experience. Install Nova launcher and custom icons :)
Are you a f.lux user on desktop? Check out Twilight. It's flux for your phone! [link]
About malware, if your Android phone is fully updated you should have an issue. And all the warning are about installing apps from a third party source.
Oh also Google photos is a great free unlimited photo back up solution.
Looks like the Twilight app (link). I use it on my phone to make the screen easier on my eyes at night, but it doesn't translate well into screenshots.
Why don't you just use f.lux on your computer? For Androids there are apps that emulate that functionality.
> keep a cell phone with you that you can glance at every ten minutes or so, with the brightness turned down as low as possible to not ruin your night vision.
If you're on Android, you can install Twilight or CF.Lumen (which requires root, unlike Twilight). It turns the color temperature of your screen down after sunset (which, at least in my case, really helps you sleep better if you use your phone before bed). I use it all the time when I go out stargazing, too.
For iPhone you can use f.lux, which I also use on my PC.
Not on F-Droid, but Twilight has an option to detect such events and disables itself while on it, so not every app that uses overlays has this problem.
Get screen filtering software for your computer and/or phone. The harsh blue light fucks with your circadian rhythm by tricking your mind into thinking its still day time. These filters strip out the blue light and give your screens a redder tint. It takes some getting used to, but it's well worth the effort. Now I can watch YouTube on my phone in bed without any impact on my sleep. There are lots of programs I'm sure, but I use f.lux on my computer and Twilight on my android phone.
+1 for 5HTP. Get the 120mg ones from Healthpost and take one an hour or so before you go to bed. Works wonders for me. Also, start using red-shift apps on your phone.
I use OPX and use the "Twilight" app. It tints red-tints the screen which really helps with my eyes (especially at night-time / in low level light). Might be similar to the Lux app thats mentioned in this thread
I began sleeping more reliably and much better when I installed F.lux on my computer, and Twilight on my tablet. They work so well that I'll actually use them as a means to fall asleep.
This will not save any battery at all unless you have an AMOLED screen. And even then, the battery saving will be minimal. Turning down the backlight will save significantly more juice.
For the too bright eye strain, consider an app like Twilight
There's some great programs to actually help with this.
f.lux works on Windows, Mac, and Linux. Also works for iPhone/iPad/iPod, but I believe it has to be jail broken.
Twilight is the Android version of f.lux. Does not require for it to be rooted.
I use Twilight, but I use Tasker to send it intents to start and stop the service (and now it's a plugin). So your claim of "those would kill the battery as they'd be running in the background non-stop" is not necessarily true. It doesn''t show up in my battery stats, nor does it show as occupying memory when the service is stopped.
By the way, did you read this?
(2) AMOLED screens: We have tested Twilight on an AMOLED screen for 2.5 years without any sign of depletion or over-burning. If properly configured Twilight causes less light emission (by enabling dimming) with more equal light distribution (dark areas of the screen such as the status bar get tinted). This may in fact increase your AMOLED screen life time.
Can you cite a source for your claims regarding Twilight and Lux?
It looks like it could be Twilight which people use to prevent strain on their eyes late at night. It helps you fall asleep at night 10/10.
>Inače samo da dodam na ovaj sav hype s LED rasvjetom
To o čemu članak govori je poznato već neko vrijeme, a u međuvremenu su se CFL žarulje i LED rasvjeta počeli proizvoditi u toplijim bojama upravo zbog tih istraživanja. Otvori bilo koji LED lightbulb na eBayu i vidit ćeš da je ponuđen u "cool white" i "warm white" varijanti. Zato ti je /u/cimomario napisao
>toplo bijele jer im je boja svjetla slična običnim žaruljama.
(inače zbog istog razloga se preporučuje koristiti softver poput f.luxa i Twilighta, pa eto, tko ne zna preporučam da instalira :)
Eliminate as much blue light as possible a few hours before going to bed. Blue light makes your brain think there's still sunlight. Install f.lux on your computer and Twilight on your phone to filter a lot of it out. Make sure your house lights emit warm colors. You can even put on blue light blocking glasses if you really need to fall asleep.
Eliminating blue light can make it easier to fall asleep and get better sleep quality. Computers, phones, and large TVs really can disrupt sleep if not addressed properly.
Are you referring to Twilight?. If so, you can't really call it shitty just because you're not able to adjust the settings to exactly what you want them to be.
Burnt like 10 stones on that crap.
At least I learned a valuable lesson about the relative utility of Chrono Turtle and Sun Quan.
Before anyone asks, the red is from this.
I just keep nightime mode on when I browse Reddit. Coupled with Flux on my laptop and Twilight on my phone I just can't use the normal non-nightmode Reddit anymore. It's like looking at the surface of the sun!
Not strictly PC, but you should consider getting a phone app that does a similar thing. For Android there's Twilight (not the shitty book).
>In other words, we need Android and iOS's permission model.
Sort of, but definitely not the same implementation.
>things like Classic Shell or f.lux are completely impossible under those permission models
I'm afraid I don't see the issue - couldn't f.lux simply have the "control monitor settings" permission and classic shell have the "replace standard menu action" permission? In fact the classic shell equivalent for android are replacement launchers, and those do exist! Also alternativeto.net suggested Twilight as an android alternative/equivalent to f.lux, and from my understanding it seems to do the same thing.
Ugh, I know that feeling.
Drink tonnes of caffeine and water during the day, helps keep you up.
F.lux and Twilight help me.
Don't go on your computer or phone before bed, it keeps you up.
Is f.lux better than Redshift on Ubuntu or Twilight on Android? I was told that those two are as good as f.lux, though I'm no authority.
Yes. That screenshot is a cringeworthy mess and TouchJizz hurts my eyes.
/uj Sam-Il-Sung hate aside, the filter (it's rather red) is supposed to reduce the blue light emitted by the display so it doesn't keep you awake too much (bilogical stuff, blah blah...). It should be this app.
/j Still not an excuse for not turning it off before taking a screenshot or not sacrificing that Sam-Il-Sung POS to DuARTe and getting a Nexus.
If all you need is f.lux, try this: [link]
As for if its worth it to trip Knox, that's really up to you. Personally I did. You lose Samsung Pay permanently, and your warranty is void. Didn't matter much to me, so I did it anyways, but it's really up to you.
Twilight. Similar to Flux for PC, it adjusts the brightness and color of your display at night, and eases the strain on your eyes.
You can never go wrong with a newer Samsung. I have a Galaxy S4 and it has been great. Due for an upgrade though, thinking of the Note 5 when it's released or the Note 4 if it proves to be too expensive.
I'm not so sure about LG, I never hear anything good or bad about them. I have one of their cheap tablets and it seems to be funky sometimes. Opening a large album of images in Relay for Reddit's image preview makes Twilight crash all the time. This doesn't happen on my S4.
A lot of people like Motorola but I found the Moto X to be really annoying to use when my grandparents had them.
HTC is well praised and the M8 got some awards last year. I've never used one myself though.
Easily the app I use most is Twilight.
Taken from the Google Play page:
"The Twilight app makes your device screen adapt to the time of the day. It filters the flux of blue light emitted by your phone or tablet after sunset and protects your eyes with a soft and pleasant red filter. The filter intensity is smoothly adjusted to the sun cycle based on your local sunset and sunrise times."
Not only have I had it run in the background while working, it has a bedtime reading setting, which I use to browse reddit before passing out.
The Windows/Mac version, called f.l.u.x:
IMO a Kindle is fine but unnecessary. I read books on my phone in bed with Twilight running to make my phone screen dimmer and warmer colored than its standard settings allow.
Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card. A short Sci-Fi coming-of-age story with a couple of twists. I don't recommend the sequels.
The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. Try this out, and if you don't love the writing by the end of the first chapter, stop reading it. The overall story isn't groundbreaking, but for many readers (including myself) love Rothfuss's writing style.
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams. Another one to try and drop if you don't love it by the end of the first chapter. Adams has been the most successful humor writer ever for my tastes, but humor is idiosyncratic.
The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman. Last one of these to sample. Like Rothfuss, this author has a distinctive style that fans adore. This is the story of a child exposed to things beyond his understanding and control, and it made me feel the wonder and fear of my childhood again.
I don't want to start a fight, but IMO unless you're interested in an allegorical critique of Stalinism reading Animal Farm is a weird choice, and Khaled Hosseini's The Kite Runner is depressing even for a story about Afghan people.
> This has been on Android for over a year at least.
only with apps from the store (e.g. Twilight ) or with custom roms (e.g. CyanoGen), not on the AOSP Android.
This one is backed directly into the OS (and meanwhile, you can still download GoodNight, compile it with XCode and sideload it)
If you put the alarm on your phone perhaps the blue light reduces the melatonin, I recommend using Twilight [link]
and also for the PC
I use an app called Twilight [link], it reduces eye strain at night or anywhere really. I guess the screenshot captures that as well.
I used to have a Samsung S4 Active. Pretty to of the line model when it came out. Battery life on it sucked but it was my baby until it was stolen. Bought a temporary "budget" Samsung J2 while I wait for the Priv thinking I'll manage with an extra battery and a power bank but I'm surprised at the longevity of this tiny 2000 mAh battery. Ofcourse it's brand new but I'm still the same ole power user (I think installing the Twilight app might have helped though).
Twilight on Android, its an app that gives the screen display a reddish tint at cretian times (usually at night) to reduce the strain on you eyes.
No, not at all. The way apps like Twilight work, they put an actual tint over the screen as /u/Cyp12die4 said. It's like looking through stained glass. In contrast, CF.Lumen works by actually modifying the output color of your screen. So, installing a red light bulb in a lamp, instead of a white one.
So if apps like Twilight were like using your phone with sunglasses, then CF.Lumen is like actually turning your display brightness down instead. Hope that's a good explanation.
There is some chance that an app like Twilight that uses an overlay method can damage your screen over time, if only slightly. But an app like CF.Lumen is guaranteed to have no adverse effects on your screen, just based on the way it works. That is unless you're using the "Non-root" option in CF.Lumen. Any option other than that will serve you fine, no long-term damage possible.
Most obvious reason is having an app that one actually wants to run in background - in my case that would be Twilight. In such case this notification becomes noise and whats worse - there is no immediately visible indicator that there is some other app also doing it (the notification text changes - but after seeing it for days you just tune it out automatically).
I really liked Lux until Lollipop. I even bought the full version and recommended it to others. Now it is crap and doesn't work well at all... all sorts of bugs and crashes requiring a restart. I tried out CF.Lumen, but I didn't have much luck with it either.
I have been using Twilight ([link]). It's not as good as Lux used to be and there isn't quite a many settings, but I'm not having crashes or other issues on Lollipop either. It suffices for my needs.
I found it on the Google play store.
Edit: it's also on Amazon. Both are free. I just downloaded it and it's pretty cool. Especially for us insomniacs.
My husband goes to bed earlier than I want to go to bed. I am always in the middle of something by then and want to stay up and finish it. But I don't. I stop what I'm doing and I turn off the lights and I get in bed with him. If I'm still awake after he falls asleep, maybe I will get back up, but those few minutes while he falls asleep nuzzling my neck and murmuring little love phrases to me are the most precious part of my day. I wouldn't give it up for anything, especially not browsing reddit or doing chores. Those things can wait.
It's taken some self-discipline, but my sleep schedule has gradually adjusted and now I sleep early and wake early like he does. (Morning sex has increased 100% by the way.) My schedule is like yours, OP, I don't need to leave early for work. So when he leaves the house in the morning that is my alone time- and I'm awake to enjoy it because I went to sleep so early.
edit: If you want to go this route, OP, here are a couple tips:
A nightcap (they're called that for a reason)
f.lux for the computer, Twilight for the phone
For those that suffer fatigue resulting from eye strain, I would suggest you use F.lux for your computer, or for Android the Twilight app.
I contracted a severe case of conjunctivitis a few years ago that left me essentially blinded (felt as though sharp glass particles were in my eyes as I opened them) so I was forced to remain confined to my bed for several weeks, but this persisted well over a month. I had also been experiencing high levels of fatigue and flu during this time.
I was checked by an ophthalmologist at the NHS, who prescribed me with antibiotic eye drops (after my GP prescribed me with the wrong one) and explained that it was likely caused by bacteria entering the eye. After this incident I would go on to develop several other health problems throughout the years that would indicate a compromised immune system.
I've been using this on my Android and this on my laptop for months, and they both work great. It greatly reduces that glazed over feeling you eyes get and when I try and sleep I don't feel like my eyes are recovering from looking at a bright screen.
re: blue light
Mac / Linux / iPad & iPhone links there as well
Put it on everything...
edit: including spouse's phone, who insists on blasting your face with her filthy peasant blue light while you're trying to go to sleep.
If you have Android, this app is fantastic. It dims the screen and changes it to a red hue based on the time of day so that the brighter, bluer light won't affect your ability to fall asleep. I love it. No options for iOS though, unfortunately.
> Not to mention how much easier it is to fall asleep after not staring at screens.
f.lux reduces the blue light in your computer screen at night, making it easier to fall asleep.
There is also software like that for your phone! (e.g. [link] )
I highly recommend it.
On my 4.4.4 Moto G, the window title is "Package installer"; if you have a profile checking %WIN for that value, it just might work.
For whatever it's worth, Twilight has an exception list (it's under More Settings > Auto-pause in specified apps); com.android.packageinstaller is one of the entries it currently has within the ban list in its preferences file.
Welcome in our legion!
Good f.lux alternative, as for me:
About notifications, as I understood there are some apps in store. I actually don't need this kind of stuff, but try to use something like nova launcher + tesla notifications or Smart Launcher with notifications plugin.
As of camera fails and 'just stop working' - yes, android often forces user into investigation. Somebody like this, somebody not. For me personally, I like this only when I have some free time :)
I've found the Twilight app to be pretty good and as it affects the whole screen, works for w-a-y more than just books.
On my desktop I use RedShift.
You can use twilight for that. It changes redness level, apart from changing brightness, but you can disable that.
It adjusts brightness and redness values for the phone and the watch based on time of the day.
You have to leave the twilight app running on the watch for this to work, though.
If you have Android, you could use Twilight, or if you have CyanogenMod or a similar custom ROM, chances are that you have it under Settings -> Display -> and something like "live display"
I love using flux for my computer! I realized the benefits of using flux pretty soon after I started using it. I have less trouble going to sleep and I feel way more relaxed and rested!
I have also found to use something on my phone.
If you have an Android, check out Twilight. It is just like flux but for your phone and it has a lot of extra features like auto adjust time to change the color according to sunset/sunrise etc. You can also pay a small fee to unlock even more features for Pro version. I have paid for it because it is awesome but the free one also does the job very well.
> Should I just get sleeping pills?
Worth discussing with your doctor at least. They're a huge help for many, me included.
If you haven't already, maybe try using f.lux on your desktop/laptop, or twilight if you have an android phone. They adjust color temperature throughout the day, reducing blue light at night which helps to keep your circadian rhythm in check. I also have a hue bulb which I swap to a dim dark red about 30 minutes before sleep.
> brand new
While it's possible the recent CQ update has performance bugs, you'll also want to check your background processing. I know for a fact that this app, when it's active, causes CQ to run more slowly.
Also, I wonder what resolution CQ runs at... The S7 has a higher res screen so...
For the screens, maybe a filtering app would be of help? I guess it's the blue light that makes our brains perk up, so the theory behind the apps is that you won't get the full whammy if that's filtered out. I can't comment on it myself, since I can generally fall asleep pretty easily these days, but a couple of friends use it and say it really helps.
It's a similar concept. I've never used Lux before, but I see a lot of the same settings in it. Twilight was modeled after the f.lux desktop application to change the screen color at night to be less harsh.
You can download an app like Twilight, it filters out the bluelight which is usually the color emitted by phones that tend to keep people awake.
There is an app in the Play Store for AndroidTV that does this. I'll try to come up with the name.
EDIT: FOUND IT. It's called Twilight ([link])
It's this guy here. It acts as a screen overlay, so I find it doesn't always play nice with other apps - but I can't live without it now.
EDIT: I just upgraded to the pro version with my play credits and theirs an option to turn it on when certain app are on.
For Android users, you can get an app such as Twilight (Free Version), that pretty much does the same thing as Night Light and f.lux for PC's, and filters out blue light emission.
Whenever I have an app or something else where buttons aren't working it's almost always another app overlay that is interfering, in my case Twilight, the screen dimmer. I occasionally have to pause Twilight to allow specific buttons to work in other apps/browsers/etc. It's rare, but when it happens, that's always been the culprit for me.
Any chance you have another app that may have some sort of overlay interference with certain Trivia Crack buttons?
There's software available to control the light emitted by computers and smart phones, white/blue light before bed tends to distrupt normal sleep [link] [link] Of course there's also color changing light bulbs, red tends to be least sleep distruptive.
