root  CF.lumen

Description: CF.lumen adapts the colors on your Android device based on the position of the sun, or your custom configuration. When using the default settings, your display will get a warmer tint (lower color temperature) when the sun is down, vastly reducing strain on the eyes. Blue light makes your brain want to stay awake, and a lower color temperatures reduces the amount of blue displayed; using this in the evening reduces your brain’s effort to keep you awake at night. (See f.lux for your PC) During sleeping hours by default a red filter is used. Red strains your eyes the least, and retains your night vision.

    I’m the developer of note crypt.
