You may recall that back in December 2014, I wrote to you about f.lux, which allows one to change the temperature of your Mac screen, so that its brightness does not keep you up all night, and you can observe dina charya (the Ayurvedic daily rhythm) for better sleep.
While this is available as an app for iOS (for iPhones and iPads), one would have had to “jailbreak” the device, undoing all its security. Until now.
FlexBright, an app that allows the user to manually adjust the display temperature of an iOS device, was recently approved by Apple, marking one of the first third-party apps that’s able to function in a manner similar to the company’s own Night Shift mode, set to be released in iOS 9.3. The only catch is it must be triggered somewhat manually in response to a notification, rather than continuously, like Night Shift or f.lux.
I look forward to trying out this app, until the next point release of iOS becomes available with Night Shift.
