Awesome Applications: F.lux

The other day, I was reading a Reddit thread authored by Reddit user Tendollarburrito who asked, “What lifestyle tweaks have you made that have made a real difference?”

Reading the thread led to my discovery of F.lux: “Software to make your life better”. Thanks to that vague description, we can clearly infer that installing the application will change your computer screen in a way that will help your eyes feel less strained.

From the website:

“F.lux fixes this: it makes the color of your computer’s display adapt to the time of day, warm at night and like sunlight during the day.

It’s even possible that you’re staying up too late because of your computer. You could use f.lux because it makes you sleep better, or you could just use it just because it makes your computer look better.”

I also searched through Youtube to find a decent video showing what it does:

I absolutely LOVE F.lux so far. However, as a warning, it changes your computer screen to become an orange tint at night. So it takes a little to get used to, but you feel the difference when you switch from f.lux to your regular computer lighting.

But enough from me. Try it yourself!
