Does what it says!

At long last, I’ve found the app for which I’ve been searching for ages. Having installed similar extensions on my desktop and laptop browsers with ease, I began to become annoyed by the fact that my OLED iPhone X now had a ‘dark mode’ but was still blinding me with white pixels—and needlessly wasting a bunch of battery life and screen time in so doing. Reader mode was helpful in many cases, but it does detract from the joys of using certain websites which, apart from their blinding white backgrounds, are actually quite well designed, and using third-party browsers is always an irritating sacrifice on iOS. So when I downloaded this app, tried out the extension and saw my webpages invert to a sumptuously inky black, you can only imagine my relief and excitement! The app’s not been updated in a year, but frankly I don’t give a darn: It does what it says on the proverbial tin. I just wish it could be set up to do so by default, so that I mustn’t manually enable ‘night’ mode for every single webpage.

Actually works

Wow, I’m impressed. It’s easy to turn on and off, AND it actually works! I like reading NatGeo articles on Safari and Night mode turns the background dark and the words light just like dark mode on the iPhone. The even better part is that the images don’t invert. They stay as the colors they are, but maybe a bit dimmer. Love it. Perfect for what I need.

Soo amazing, even works with safari

I didn’t know that having a night mode safari extension was possible on ios, but those guys did it. Please donate to them.
