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

Thank you very much for your intention to support our development. This is a pro application for the Twilight app. Please install on top, do not uninstall Twilight first.

brilliant app... great catch!

Good app, but can at times cause an overlay on the screen which can stop them from installing etc.

Oh i bought it the last time it was on sale and haven't had any problems

it's a sad world when we have to consider using apps like this to ensure our kids get a good night's sleep. I'm in support of this kind of thing and I'm voting hot....but I remember reading my kids bedtime stories instead of allowing themselves to become fixated on a 10" screen

awesome app!!!! Can also link with Philips hue lighting

Not saying this isn't a good deal, but isn't this feature built into Android nowadays?

Not sure. I have marshmallow on my s7 edge. I don't know of any settings that allow this. Nougat might though, unless I'm havering.

MIUI on my Redmi note 2 had it, so does the custom Cyanogenmod for it, so i just assumed it was widespread in Android.
I guess not

It's an official feature in android 7.1, i.e. the just released version. Everything before that will only have it as an unofficial feature through modded ROMs or apps like this.

Though as someone above said, this counts as an overlay and therefore causes permissions problems. If I have to grant an app a permission then I will get a message along the lines of "overlay detected, please turn off overlay to continue". It's so that you can't be using a banking app while some other app tries to steal your details by getting you to tap the wrong thing. Still irritating.

I use the free version of this I know it's only 10p for the pro version but the free one does everything I need it to so i can't see the point in me purchasing it

​As gratitude for the use you get?

Best thing about this app imo is it lets you turn down the brightness much further than you normally can. Perfect for reading in the dark.

I purchased this in the previous deal and I was pessimistic about the use of this app. but to my surprise, it was really good. I use it when reading at night, it really helps to reduce the light making it more pleasant to see/read when it's dark. highly recommended!

No need to be dramatic

Don't get this!

Turn off lights, pull quilt over your head, and get to sleep you soppy sods!

If your incapable of telling your kids no tablet before bed to such an extent that it then keeps them awake due to the light being given off by the screen then yeah you don't havecany control of what your kid is doing. You failed.

​also allows auto start with sunset and sunrise with pro unlock. I hide the notification completely and just let it trigger with when it gets dark, in line with my geolocation.

I agree,chill out, relax and get them to read to ready them for sleep, but I think if they or I use something like this on the tablet or pc before bedtime it will probably help, I use f.lux on the pc and I don't use the pc at night without it on.

It's 'You're', by the way, not 'your'. Did you mean 'have any'? If this is what you teach your kids about spelling and grammar, perhaps it's not us who failed? Just saying.

You are free and easy with the sweeping statements and judgements about complete strangers. Thanks for your valuable (but incorrect) opinion, much appreciated

You must be a really fun "parent". A "failed" one, I mean.

The widow still comes.
The screams are never silenced.
Still worth the 10p.

Just upgraded to pro.....Although it's not starting up properly at the mo. Hopefully will after a restart.

​Our little one (just turned two) loves his books and happily e.g. turns pages and will start singing nursery rhymes according to what's on that page.

Too many parents these days just stick YouTube on a phone or tablet in front of their kids and wonder why they get the "zombie stare".. (_;)

You also fail if you're incapable of telling your kids the difference between "you're" and "your"

Does anyone know of any apps that actually lower the screen brightness, not just put a filter over it to darken it? I'm looking to save a bit of battery life.
I had an Xposed module called "minimum brightness' on my Note 3 but when I moved up to the Note 4 and marshmallow, it was nowhere to be seen.

What a load of marketing bs.

annoying thing is it doesn't work with Skype or what's app calling. have to disable then only it works.

Only side loaded apps, all you have to do is stop it for a few seconds.

I've been using the free app Screen Filter for a few years now. It does put a dark overlay on rather than dim the screen. The only app I've had a problem with while using it is Natwest banking app.

Personally I prefer CF.Lumen but this is better from a usability perspective and doesn't require root so good for the layperson

The auto sunlight settings makes it come on at 7 and off and 15...it's the wrong way around!

Team Edward!!






oh wait - wrong app

might as well buy it for this price as I've been using the free version.

I used the free version of Twilight, and then the pro version of Lux and can't select OK in Android 5.1 Accessibility Services. Even after uninstalling both apps and rebooting, I still can't select OK.

Is there any app that'll detect an overlay on the screen and tell me which app is creating that overlay?

Laughing at all the bad parents getting defensive and picking out the guys grammar

.....but, but, but, my little darlings will not go to bed without an iphone and a takeaway in the evening! Keep telling yourself that.
