A web browser for night owls. This app is a minimal web browser that dims your screen by up to 90% beyond the lowest brightness possible in Safari. This makes reading far more pleasurable for tired eyes in dark rooms.
This app has a simple, intuitive interface, but underneath it is based on the same great HTML 5 compliant engine that you're used to. Web pages still look as beautiful as ever, and dynamic content works equally well too.
We hope you enjoy using Night Owl... Happy night-time reading!
What's New in Version 1.0
This update adds a slick new interface to NightOwl, making it a first rate web browser. It now includes support for storing links to your favourite sites, and a slider that allows you to adjust the brightness down to almost nothing.
Oh if they only added this slider to safari
For me safari is way too bright even at the lowest brightness setting when I am in bed and the lights are off. I often browse the web like this after my wife goes to sleep to catch up on engadget. So this app fills a need, unfortunately the browser is very bare bones, doesn't support multiple pages like safari does, it doesn't import your safari bookmarks, etc. I was hoping it would be more like safari with a brightness adjustment...sadly thats not possible I guess. If they add multiple pages and import bookmarks, this would be a solid 4 rating.
Nice idea, could use a few added features
The slider to reduce the screen browser is the reason to get the app. In addition to the need for tabs or new windows, I wish it would keep the page you were on if you have to use a different app for even a second. Always goes back to the home page, with no history, or memory, to get you back to where you left off.
Great app, but please fix menu
This is a great app for nighttime private browsing. No frills, no tabs, and it clears your history when you navigate away. However, since the last system update, the menu is buggy. There doesn't seem to be enough space to click on forward, back, favorites, etc... End up pressing buttons you didn't mean to.
