Do you hyperactive with your smartphone just before sleeping? The reason is Checking mail, Reading ebooks, glimpsing through stories, facebook timeline, favourite game, or anything it may be.. If you’re reading this, after seeing the title of this article, then I can surely say you must have got a irritating eyes or experienced the trouble if falling asleep.

No, I am not saying reading before sleep is a bad habit? or bedtime phone usage is not the cause too. The reason behind your semi-insomnia is the blue light emitted by your phone’s screen. Yes it’s true and proven. Here are the some facts quoted below

Recent research suggests that exposure to blue light before sleep may distort your natural (circadian) rhythm and cause inability to fall asleep.

The cause is the photoreceptor in your eyes, called Melanopsin. This receptor is sensitive to a narrow band of blue light in the 460-480nm range which may suppress Melatonin production – a hormone responsible for your healthy sleep-wake cycles.

So? What’s the solution. The phone screen without blue color emission will help you. Twilight is an app for android users, which can do the filtering of blue color. That’s it. It comfort my eyes and even after hours of bedtime reading in my phone, I can find myself okay to sleep rather than being insomniac with irritating eyes.

The app comes with fewer configuring options, that you can modify according to your need. The default setting suffice our need. But you can set profiles too.. After installing the app you can find them yourself. A youtube video is coming to our channel to give you more insight on this. So subscribe to our new channel on youtube.

A sweet information for power android users is, twilight can be controlled through ‘Tasker’ (an automation app for android). Twilight Pro costs only Rs. 20, but free version will do more than we want.
