    Has anyone else noticed a strip of pixels running down the very left side of the iPad (when held portrait) at night when you are using f.lux? The strip seems to flash back to the original color temperature every five seconds. Does any one else see this issue? I searched and didn't see that it had been brought up. I took the best picture I could of the line while it reverts to the original temperature.

    Also, this is on an iPad 3 running 6.1 and the picture is of the iPad in landscape with the left side along the bottom of the picture.

    No problem here on iPad 4 / 6.1. Are you running the latest version of f.lux? Have you tried turning off the long transitions in the settings? Do you have another tweak that may be interfering with f.lux?

    I am using the newest version of flux, and it does this even if its the only cydia program installed. I figured out that it only does it during the long transitions.

    I'll switch on the long transition and see if it does it on mine.

    Well it won't be of much help to you but I'm having the same problem after switching on long transitions. I'll email the good people at f.lux and see what they have to say about it.

    Edit: there's someone on tweeter having the same problem who contacted the f.lux team and they said we should send them a log through cydia. (Open cydia, navigate to f.lux, contact developer)

    iPad 3, 6.1 I had the same issue. It went away after changing the color temperature and I haven't been able to replicate it.

    iPad 3 here, also have the same problem. Thought it was my eyes first, and then thinking my screen was ****** up ha. Hopefully they resolve it.

    iPhone 5 version is doing fine.

    They have responded and said that it is a hardware/panel bug that they can't easily fix. The only fix so far is to turn off the long transitions in the settings .
