New app FlexBright for iPhone is just like F.lux: adjusts colors so that your phone does not disturb your sleep
Apple is preparing to implement some clever features in iOS 9.3 that adjust the iPhone screen colors to go red at night. This optional feature will prevent the blue light from hitting your app, and studies have shown that exposure to blue light at night prevents you from falling asleep easily.

However, an app that does just that is now available for iPhone: FlexBright is a new application that works just like the popular F.lux for Mac, as it filters out the blue light and swaps it for a more eye-caring reds at night.

It's strange that FlexBright has actually made it through Apple's curation process. F.lux for iPhone, for instance, was only shortly available for download. Apple has found that the app violates some of its Terms and Conditions, and it was pulled from the App Store and is no longer available.

Will FlexBright have the same fate eventually? We don't know, but if you use your iPhone at night and want to have the functionality that FlexBright provides, we'd rather get it sooner than later. The app is available for $2 and you can download it via the link right below.

Interesting how the icon looks like a blatant rip-off of Sunrise Calendar's. They increased the thickness of the horizontal lines at the bottom, but even though I haven't done the test, I wouldn't be surprised if the color gradient wasn't exactly the same. Maybe the app in itself works, but I somehow can't get myself to trust apps whose icons are ripped off from others.

Just a FYI, it's $2.99 not $2.

F.Lux looks way better than this in design.
