f.lux v4.111
f.lux v4.111 Ever notice how people texting at night have that eerie blue glow? Or wake up ready to write down the Next Great Idea, and get blinded by your computer screen? During the day, computer screens look good—they're designed to look like the sun. But, at 9PM, 10PM, or 3AM, you probably shouldn't be looking at the sun. 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. f.lux makes your computer screen look like the room you're in, all the time. When the sun sets, it makes your computer look like your indoor lights. In the morning, it makes things look like sunlight again. Tell f.lux what kind of lighting you have, and where you live. Then forget about it. f.lux will do the rest, automatically. What to do first Set your location. f.lux works a lot better if it knows when the sun rises and sets. The sun is the brightest light we see every day, so setting this up matters a lot for understanding your circadian timing Choose your usual wake time. If you wake at a different time each day, you can pick a time on the earlier side Adjust color settings so it looks as you like it. Just move the big slider to adjust, and f.lux will learn what you like You can set f.lux to “disable” automatically for apps where color quality is critical To quickly disable for ...

LightBulb v2.3
LightBulb v2.3 LightBulb is an application that reduces eyestrain produced by staring at a computer screen when working late hours. As the day goes on, it continuously adjusts gamma, transitioning the display color temperature from cold blue in the afternoon to warm yellow during the night. Its primary objective is to match the color of the screen to the light sources of your surrounding environment - typically, sunlight during the day and artificial light during the night. LightBulb has minimal impact on performance and offers many customization options. Currently only compatible with Windows 7 and higher. Important: You will need to install .NET Core Desktop Runtime manually: x64 | x86. Features Extensive customization options Pull sunrise and sunset times from the Internet or set them manually Smooth temperature transition for large changes Pause when a fullscreen application or game is in foreground Configurable global hotkeys Minimal impact on performance Changes: v2.3 (12-Nov-2020) Fixed an issue where the gamma would sometimes get reset when waking up from sleep or in certain other situations, on latest Windows 10 builds. Fixed an issue where opening the settings dialog would hang the UI for 0.5-1s. Also changed the whitelist settings tab to refresh the list of running applications only on user's request, instead of each time it's loaded. Fixed an issue where searching for location using a query sometimes didn't work, due to unexpected breaking changes in Reduced the threshold for minimum gamma changes. This should make the transition period more smooth by performing gamma updates a bit more often. Minor UI improvements. Click here to visit the author's website.

Stretchly v1.5.0
Stretchly v1.5.0 Break time reminder app Stretchly is an open source app that reminds you to take breaks when working with computer. Default behavior When you run Stretchly for the first time, you are presented with a Welcome window that allows you to change the language, review the settings, view the online tutorial or simply continue with the default settings. Stretchly itself lives in your tray, only displaying a reminder window from time to time, which contains an idea for a break. By default, there is a 20 second Mini Break every 10 minutes and a 5 minute Long Break every 30 minutes (after 2 Mini Breaks). You'll be notified 10 seconds before a Mini Break (and 30 seconds before a Long Break) so that you can prepare to pause your work. When a break starts, you can postpone it once for 2 minutes (Mini Breaks) or 5 minutes (Long Breaks). Then, after a specific time interval passes, you can skip the break. Both actions are available by clicking on the link at the bottom of window or by using the Ctrl/Cmd + X keyboard shortcut. Clicking the Stretchly icon in your tray area will display the current status of breaks, provide menu items with extra functionality, and link to the Preferences. Stretchly is monitoring your idle time, so when you are idle for 5 minutes, breaks will be paused until you return. Stretchly is also monitoring Do Not Disturb mode, so breaks are paused when DnD mode is On. Stretchly follows the theme of your system and is also available in dark mode. Interact with stretchly from command line When a Stretchly instance is running, the stretchly command can be use to interact with it from the command line. Type stretchly help to get a list of all commands and options available as well as some examples. Preferences Most of the preferences ...
