Night lights does not work

I just bought this last week and it worked just fine. Was looking forward to changing for the different seasons. Received the update last night and now it does not work. This should have been tested out before making the update.

Bad update - Please fix this.

Can’t get app to do anything except show instructions. I hope you get this fixed soon. If not, is it possible to revert to previous version?
!After all, ’Tis the season to have NightLights on my Mac!


Anybody noticed when the app is running it will slows the computer down ?
I don’t like the menu’s , makes no sence to me.
Other than that it’s ok.
