GalacticNight Helps Samsung Users Preserve Their Night Vision

There is not much more painful to the eyes than turning on a bright display in a dark room. There are applications out there with Night Mode, but they don’t always work optimally—often eliminating colors, which makes things more difficult to read. This is a problem that the Samsung Epic 4G Touch no longer need experience.

XDA Senior Member arpruss has developed an application called GalacticNight. It requires root because it modifies the mdnie* files to adjust the colors for proper night vision. Arpruss explains the application more in depth:

I know there is ChainFire3D, which is a great app, but this is better for nightmode. ChainFire3D does nightmode by simply dropping the green and blue colors. That way of doing things can make some things invisible (e.g., some things in the UI may be pure green, and then they’ll turn black). GalacticNight, instead, properly converts RGB colors to luminosities, and then sets the red (or green or white) intensity according to the luminosity.

There are also a variety of settings based on how you want your phone to look or behave. For instance, the reverse colors mode will change everything around, so white browser backgrounds become black. Additionally, the screen remains mostly dark, which saves battery life on AMOLED devices. The initial version of the application was only compatible for Epic Touch Gingerbread, but since has been found to be working on a number of other devices.

For additional information and the up-to-date list on device compatibility, check out the original thread.

There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end? Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
