Work at Night allows you to control the brightness of all your screens in multiple settings. This customizable app allows you to place a shade over multiple screens at the same time, helping reduce the strain on your eyes especially at night or when you just woke up. Work at Night will reduce your Mac's brightness on demand, without any risk to your activities on your computer. Work at Night was built specifically to save on energy consumption extending your batteries working time.

If you are working on multiple screens using different lighting settings on each screen can help you focus on what is important. If you use more light the the main screen and the other screens aren't as bright your mindset

The simplicity of Work at Night will make the app extremely easy to use. All the programming is hidden behind a simple light intensity slider or simple shortcut keys. Easy to use and extremely effective.

Ever have to work around people that for example are trying to sleep ( hotel room ) simply shade your screen and continue working without lighting up the room like a candle.

This is another example of iLifeTouch building apps that make your life easier one day at a time. Please use and enjoy.

Just downloaded this and I've used it for all of 2 minutes. But I already like it enough to write a review. At the price of less than a cup of coffee this is a real bargain. I am using it with my Mac Book Pro 17 and an external monitor. If you have two external monitors than what people are saying about not being able to control the brightness for two screens would probably be correct. However, I can still use the brightness keys on my keyboard so I dial in my external screen first with this app and then adjust my laptop screen accordingly. Glad I decided to try it. Best dollar I spent this week!

For those who don't understand the reason for this product: why buy it if you don't have a need for it?

This is perfect for me working in a dark area with a 30" cinema screen. Dimmed all the way down, it is WAY TO BRIGHT, since default browser colors are far too bright even with it dimmed to the lowest settings. I've tried some browser extentions to fix the problem but it only addresses part of the problem and screen transitions flicker from full bright to dimmed so it was not a good solution.

As someone who is prone to migrains, this helps make browsing at night easier on the eyes.

*edit - I accidentally a letter.

Great, except for a critical flaw

It works as it says it does, and I like the fact that the mouse isn't effected. You can choose to have the menu bar remain at full brightness, which is a nice touch.

The thing that seriously limits the useablility of this app is that it doesn't work with full-screen apps. If I have a webpage open in a full-screened Safari window, it's still blazing white.

I'm certainly still going to use the program, but I won't be able to do so while using full-screen apps.
