NightTone makes your screen more comfortable, enjoyable and healthier by shifting the colors of your display to a warmer, eye-friendly palette. It makes you sleep and feel better.

It's perfect for everyone's health, especially for people with visual perception problems, light sensitivity or discomfort.

• The science behind the app
The monitor's blue light tricks our circadian rhythm (our natural body clock) into thinking that it’s daytime. It suppresses melatonin (that sends "time to sleep" cues) and builds up histamine that helps wake us up, boosts attention and reaction times. In other words, it resets that feeling of tiredness and hurts our sleep cycle.

Just remember: It's bad to be exposed to sleep-inhibiting blue light during the night.

• Predefined color pallets for common scenarios
- Warm orange for late working hours
- Soft black or inverted colors for dark rooms
- Noisy green for long text reading
- Silky blue for rooms with artificial light
- Tender white for movies night or dark photo work
- All colors are adjustable and can be changed to anything you are comfortable with

• Features
- Change the screen brightness and palette to warmer colors
- Configure the display to virtually any color you want
- Invert the screen's colors for better usage in very dark rooms
- Multiple monitors supported
- The app can active itself only during nights (and you can customize the activation hours)
- Start at login, schedule the app and forget it exists. Just enjoy the benefits
- Easy to use and there is absolutely no configuration required

Version 2.0.0
Review by MtnK9

Works great as advertised - I tried this app for a week before reviewing. No unwanted or unsatisfactory issues with youtube, brightness settings or other applications. That may have been something unique to an earlier version. The app performs as advertised, and works quite well. Makes a huge difference for evening work on the computer.

Version 1.9.0
Review by Cupertino guy

Doesn’t work as expected - What I want is Night Shift like on iOS. The following issues exist: 1.It messes with the screen brightness controll - in fact sets the screen brightness to the midpoint everytime you start - so the screen gets very bright if you had already lowered it. 2.messes with ideo/youtube when rendering in full screen. Pretty much unusable as a night time dimmer.

Version 2.0.0
Review by Cousin Kale

Basic App, better than nothing - This is a basic app and is worth the $2.99 for those who are sensitve to bright LED light, especially at night. A simple icon appears in the menu bar. Easy to turn on and off, unlike Flux (why I switched). I wish there were more orange / red tones to choose from. These are the only tones that work at night for better melatonin. The research is still out about back lit LEDs, even with color profile changes, but this app is surely better than looking at bright white light well into the night. Worth a try for $2.99!
