    Loving iOS don't misinterpret my post but when I was on android (shudder) I used an app every night call screen filter. It basically put a filter over the screen that was adjustable and allowed you to effectively mimic the brightness going even lower than default (only that it was just a dark film over the screen)

    This then made night viewing far simpler without lighting up the entire room. It isn't restrictive in teens of use as it used to apply once the app was launched and you could adjust the opacity of the filter. I had a widget set to a default value that I would tap before launching Tapatalk for example.

    I think there's an opportunity for a very good app and one that I definitely used a lot!

    What are your thoughts out there in the community?

    Is there anywhere we can suggest such an app for developers to pick up and try to implement?

    There's no way if would work. An app for this would be pointless as it would only work while that app is open. As soon as you switched to a different app or screen, it would return the screen to normal.

    As the other user mentioned, the only way to accomplish this is to jailbreak and install f.lux as jail breaking provides the root system access you would need.

    Other than that, email Apple and tell them you'd like to see this feature added.
