Ratings and Reviews
This app is great and has helped ease my eye strain tremendously. I would only say that its blanket approach where everything gets tinted could use some sophistication.
Lousy scheduling feature
The screen tint feature is what I was looking for. It works on both my monitors. What doesn’t work is the scheduling feature. You’re supposed to be able to set a “shade-on” and “shade-off” (mine is 9 pm and 9 am, respectively). But it looks like the screen tint app only knows to toggle the shade if it’s awake during those times. If the computer goes to sleep with the shade off and then you wake your after the shade-on time, the app doesn't turn the shade on. Likewise, if you put your computer to sleep with the shade on and then you wake your computer after the shade-off time, the app simply leaves the shade on.
To be honest, I bought the app without even knowing the scheduling feature existed but now that I know it’s there and badly implemented, I’m really annoyed with it.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
