Are you having trouble falling asleep? Are your kids hyperactive when playing with the tablet before bed time?
Are you using your smart phone or tablet in the late evening? Twilight may be a solution for you!
Recent research suggests that exposure to blue light before sleep may distort your natural (circadian) rhythm and cause inability to fall asleep.

The cause is the photoreceptor in your eyes, called Melanopsin. This receptor is sensitive to a narrow band of blue light in the 460-480nm range which may suppress Melatonin production - a hormone responsible for your healthy sleep-wake cycles.

In experimental scientific studies it has been shown an average person reading on a tablet or smart phone for a couple of hours before bed time may find their sleep delayed by about an hour.

The Twilight app makes your device screen adapt to the time of the day. It filters the blue spectrum on 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.

PRO features
- more than 2 predefined profiles
- adjustable transition time
- option to turn off Twilight service altogether during inactive times
- new features will often first appear as PRO

This looks awesome. How would it compare to say F.lux? My OnePlus has a Night Mode but you can't schedule it.

I've used this on several phones but it has a nasty habit of completely locking the screen due to a bug.
When it works, it's probably a useful app, but I've had too many issues with it.

Same here. Every time something strange happened with my phone, whether I couldn't click to install an app or change a setting with something else, it was because of this app. I agree that it does what it says it's going to do (in terms of changing the screen, I can't comment on whether this improved my health/sleep), but it isn't seamless enough to not be annoying for me. I kept it on my old phone for a year or so but after getting a new phone and reviewing which apps to install, I didn't install it again.

If you're rooted, you can use Tasker on your OnePlus and have night mode activated on a timer. If you prefer the red hue added by Twilight to the yellow hue from Night Mode's reduced blue light, then this is perfect.

Love this app. Doesn't disturb the wife at night.

It looks similar to f.lux
I love that app. Have it on my laptop as well. Can't go anymore without it

This randomly stopped some apps working last time I tried it, luckily now it appears to be a built in feature in Nougat (at least, it is present on my HTC 10)

I use this on my Nexus 6p works a charm brilliant app... used to have it on my s4 also didn't affect the phone at all.

I tried this before but i prefer CF Lumen.

I'm not against the idea of this and think it'll work for some people, however at a software level it caused permission issues with my other apps so I had to get rid of it.

Good value at 10p though.

Android 7 has a blue light filter option built into it (for those who have or can upgrade to it)

​Thirding this. It generates an overlay, so anything you're doing on your phone is through Twilight. Obviously this poses a massive security risk and some applications won't play ball if it detects any overlay. Twilight is a secure application and there's nothing untoward going on with it, but it's easier for other developers to use a blanket ban on overlays.

Night Screen app is much better. Use it everyday now.

i removed the app due to thr Overlay issues.
great idea but the app is a major pain in the ****

Don't majority of phones have this function anyway? Oneplus definitely does.

Overall: Best one in the class, won't have ads later unlike free ones, buy it while @10p.

Yet another one who's had it and got rid - the issues I was having with the overlays meant it wasn't worth keeping.

that's because its a security feature installed into the OS, it stops stuff being installed that you don't want to be installed, essentially the android OS will say no your not allowed to install thins unless the user says so and because there's a red overlay on top of everything else android thinks hey there could be something limiting the users options so just in case it makes the user disable screen overlays when installing things

its the same case with FB messenger bubbles and or Google translate bubbles occasionally

I installed it on a previous deal and used it a couple of times, but now don't bother.

If anybody is interested I'll sell the one I have for 5p?

Android Nougat has this built in already. A blue light filter that can be set to activate on sunset etc...

Where's Turkey? Google Play deals are HIS TERRITORY! X)

Is this a any better than the free blue light filters?

No they don't, my oneplus one had it but not say the nexus 6p, blackberry priv, shield tablet. It's a stock feature of android 7 though so roll on the updates!

great app that I've used for about a year. For 10p you can't go wrong. hot!

There's a free version of this too, install it and see what you think.

If you have a rooted phone it's much better to go for something like CF Lumen. Twilight (and other apps that don't require root) simply use an overlay, which means the darkness of blacks gets noticeably reduced. Apps with root usually go deeper than that, so other colours aren't affected.

Had this and got rid.

The best is CF Lumen!

I can't comment if its better or not but i use night screen and like it.

The overlay causes issues so I stopped using it. This sort of thing should become a standard feature of the OS though.

You can hit pause to overcome the overlay issues from the pull down notification area, the overlay issues were driving me nuts until I noticed that pausing the app fixed the permission problems.

free with nougat

Not worth it even at 10p. The overlay issues still arent fixed after a year or two.

Cf lumen is far superior

Yes, I'll give it a try for 10p

I bought this last time it was 10p. I uninstalled it because it made my phone crawl when activated. I've coped fine without it

Hot, I got this before when it was 10p and its absolutely perfect. If you have issues with the screen overlay (such as when installing an app) just pull down the top bar and hit pause

Might uninstall the free version as havinga lot of issues withh phone since last android update particularly camera
very slow and crashing

When I installed most of the screen is red apart from the Home tab along bottom of screen is still lit up as normal. Am I missing something here?

It uses a colour overlay, android doesn't allow overlay of the navigation bar though.

Out of interest, of what worth/of what need would any such similar App to the OP's be on a Laptop exactly?, or am I missing something ..... thanx. :-)
