f.lux is a must-have app for Mac users. Awesome to see @herf build this for iOS, although it's unfortunately that it need to be side-loaded.

@rrhoover I'd love for it to be available normally. One thing I also find is at night the backlight, even at the minimum setting, it still too bright. Would be great if you could override this

@smithjw @rrhoover I found this also and then came across an accessibility option to dim the screen further. I then set it up against the home button 3 tap shortcut so I can toggle the dimming at night. This post explains it well: http://www.techrepublic.com/arti... :)

Infinite clapping. Thank you for this. I'm a bit sad that Apple hasn't bought f.lux and made it a system level feature.

Got it working. my eyes are so happy. xcode is a foreign world to me. So I was a bit confused when installing. For this step "Under Targets > iflux > General > Identity, add a word to the end of the Bundle Identifier to make it a unique name" This is what you need to do:

@mscccc I wonder why it's necessary. I left it as is.

@pointum i'm thinking that it's for when they get it in the app store. Installing the "official" version won't clash with this side loaded one.

So I've just uploaded this to GitHub for anyone who couldn't grab it before they took it down. Enjoy! https://github.com/smithjw/flux-iOS

Unfortunately, that didn't last long. @herf just updated the site with the following: Apple has contacted us to say that the f.lux for iOS download (previously available on this page) is in violation of the Developer Program Agreement, so this method of install is no longer available. He continues to credit Product Hunt, LifeHacker, BGR , 9to5Mac , TechCrunch, and The Next Web for driving 176k visits in the past 24 hours. RIP, f.lux for iOS.

@rrhoover I hope the developer did not add any expiration mechanism. It should continue to work otherwise.
