Twilight App

The Twilight App puts a red filter over your smartphone or tablet at night to protect your eyes from potentially blue light that can have a negative impact on sleep patterns. I tried the Twilight App because as someone with a visual impairment, backlights can often distort my viewing experience. So read online about the Twilight App which is a free app available on Android from the Google Play Store.  

There is no iOS yet.

All in all, a great little free app for people with visual impairment.

The first thing which is great about the Twilight App is once it is installed – Twilight App automatically adjusts to the local time zone. This means that once it is installed, you don’t need to worry about it. The Twilight App will automatically activate during the evening and stay on through the night. I found this feature to be really useful as Twilight App would be something that I’d always forget activate. You can alter the settings of the Twilight App to get it just right for your own preferences. It also worth saying that running the Twilight App did not drain my device’s battery.

You immediately notice when the Twilight App is active because the contrast of the screen is immediately less harsh in bad light. What is nice though is that Twilight App maintains excellent screen clarity, which I think is quite an achievement actually. As someone with a visual impairment, I had expected activities like reading to become more difficult with the Twilight App because I expected a drop in clarity. Not a hint of it. I think the Twilight App would be particularly useful for people with dyslexia and especially students with dyslexia who do a fair amount of reading at night!

All in all, a great little free app for people with visual impairment.
