Apple kills f.lux for iOS quoting a Developer Program Agreement violation
Since the f.lux iOS app needed special APIs to work its magic, the developers avoided the Apple Store route by asking potential users to side-load the app to their iOS devices. Apple's Xcode was updated to allow for app slide-loading a few months ago, but as it turns out, Apple has recently informed f.lux that the Developer Program Agreement doesn't allow for such promotion methods. As a result, the developers were forced to pull the download link for the iOS app.
If this is the first time you're hearing about f.lux, the app filters the blue light of a screen based on the time of day. When the sun is up, the app allows the entire color spectrum to shine. During the night, however, the app filters the blue light, projecting a more yellowish tone.
