The brightness of the screens of these smartphones is enough to make you cross eyed if you are not careful. I recently purchased the Motorola Moto G5 Plus and one of the very first apps I installed was an app called Twilight. What Twilight does is this:
The Twilight app makes your device screen adapt to the time of the day. It filters the flux of blue light emitted by your phone or tablet after sunset and protects your eyes with a soft and pleasant red filter. The filter intensity is smoothly adjusted to the sun cycle based on your local sunset and sunrise times.
I especially like using Twilight prior to bedtime and when I am driving at night (when using my map and music apps). Believe it or not (and I believe this), research suggests that exposure to blue light before sleep may distort your natural (circadian) rhythm and cause inability to fall asleep. With Twilight the screen turns to a redish tint; which, believe it or not makes your eyes feel more relaxed. Twilight can be configured to activate automatically or manually. In my case, I have it set to the manual setting so that I can toggle it on and off at will. Twilight is a FREE app with no advertisements and is highly rated and sought after in the Google Play Store.

PangoBright is a simple to use screen dimmer utility that I have featured on the blog in the past. Recently, while sitting in my garage watching a ballgame, in the dark, and multitasking on my notebook PC, I needed something to tone down the brightness on the notebook. I remembered PangoBright and downloaded it. When I ran PangoBright it defaulted to a 70 percent screen brightness (which made me happy); but, I noticed something when I clicked on PangoBright’s tray menu. There is now an option to select a fade out color, which further makes this small (116k) portable utility valuable (in terms of reducing eye strain). This option was not there the last time I used PangoBright.
Oh, PangoBright does work on Windows 10…

Today’s post does not require a whole lot of explaining and to put it simply it is about a screen dimmer utility called PangoBright that will work with a multi-monitor setup. It has one job and one job only: to manually dim your screens!
I know myself, with a LED monitor, there are times I have to tone down the brightness to keep my eyes from tiring. With, PangoBright installed (small 112 KB .exe file) and residing in the system tray, adjusting the brightness is two mouse clicks away – [ DOWNLOAD HERE ] .
