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

Fine for one monitor, multi-screen is inconsistent

Tried this because I wanted a simple way to adjust brightness on both monitors. It works as expected on one monitor, but when using on both it makes my laptop screen way dimmer than my external monitor. I'm talking an extreme difference that makes it unusable. Other apps I've tried that dim screens don't have this issue.

Dear user,
I think your monitor reacted to the ambient light and got dimmer. You can increase the brightness manually on the laptop, since you laptop and solve this problem.

Eh.

I used this for a few months, and liked it except that it bumps up the screen brightness when it’s switched on, or when you change the color. It goes bright, and then you have to hit the dim button to get it back to the correct brightness. It got annoying to be blinded for a second every time I turned it on. Plus, the color seems to cloud over the black areas of the screen, reducing contrast in a bad way. The scheduler is a nice feature, though I personally didn’t use it much, and I liked the ability to customize the color.

Dear customer,
What you are describing is actually the built in macOS auto-brightness functionality. You can disable it if you go to your Mac's System Preferences > Display > click the Display tab > uncheck the "Automatically adjust brightness" option.
For more details or help you can send me an email at hello@alexdenk.eu and I will gladly help you.

You can quit the app very easily: just open the app (click the icon from the top menu, near the clock), then click the menu button (top-right side) and select Quit.
