Usually it's not dark enough at sunset. I'd love to have the option to use civil twilight instead for auto-switch.

Pros:

I've been using NightOwl for a few months now. Really useful little app. I love the automatic switching with sunrise/sunset

Cons:

Not much

Really great app which is missing the ability to change the wallpaper when it switches between light and dark.

Pros:

Super great App, does exactly what it says!

Cons:

Would be really cool if it could change the wallpaper too.

Great but the pop over is .... "Force light mode" does not seem to work and it is slow or crashes. Waiting for a next release.

Pros:

Automated dark mode

Cons:

Crashes WhatsApp

Way more convenient light mode/dark mode switching. Time based switching Sunset/sunrise switching

Cons:

Not on the Mac App Store.
