Best Night Light uses your phone's screen to illuminate a room using any of 3 different light modes - Night Light, Mood Light and Lava Lamp.

Each mode is customisable and can be set on a timer up to 8 hours, or be left on all night with 'infinite' mode.

Best Night Light also now includes a selection of white noise or ambient background sounds. These can be selected from any light mode, and play until the timer runs out or the light is cancelled.

The background sounds are ideal to help calm your mind and relax you before going to sleep.

Night Light

The Night light provides a soft and gentle light. It’s bright enough to see by but is not bright enough to dazzle you or anyone else.

* Use it to read with before bed

* To get undressed without disturbing a sleeping partner

* Checking on or feeding your baby

* To chase away bad dreams and help adults and children alike to sleep better.

And once the selected time has passed, it simply fades out and exits the app.

Mood Light

The Mood light displays the colours of the rainbow, either randomly or in order. It can add ambience and atmosphere to a room.

Lava Lamp

Choose from a large selection of pre-set colour schemes, or create your own, then sit back, relax and watch as the screen swirls and whirls.

If you are planning on using Best Night Light all night, then we recommend plugging in your device to ensure your battery does not go flat before you wake.

For younger children and babies, please ensure that the device is left on a bedside table out of reach of the child.

Great app

I love this app and use it several times a night when I feed my 11 week old baby. I love the different colors or designs, the sounds are super helpful because my daughter loves the white noise to get back to sleep, and the timer is my favorite part! The one thing lacking from this app is the fact that I have to turn the brightness up on my phone in order for the screen to be bright enough to use. I wish that, once the app turned on, it would automatically brighten my screen for me. This is a very small issue in the grand scheme of this app, so Im not too worried about it.
But for the most part, this is incredibly useful !


This app is great!

I think this app is great. Whenever I use it at night sometimes, it’s so nice and
Lightens up a dark room. I only have one problem. Which is if the night light is on and you touch it will tend to go back to the menu, which I mean that’s fine but maybe there could be a little edit button at the top that would go back to the menu? Overall this app is great it has timers, different lights, if you turn of data and wifi you
get no ads, and it even has sound. Thank you for making this app, and I hope everyone likes
It as much as me! 😃

For Adults Too

I can’t sleep in the dark due to trauma, etc. as an adult. But this is nice: it has options for different colors, moving screens, for sounds or none, and brightness adjustment... I adjust the brightness on my iPhone through quick access if it’s too bright or not enough, depending on mood or wherever else. Don’t feel ashamed as an adult, and don’t let the opportunity for something pretty to look at for kids pass you by if you have them, are baby sitting, etc. It’s free and it does the job well. Thanks for the app!
