Sleep Better with NightLamp, the Intelligent Night Light
If you’ve ever had difficulty falling or staying asleep at night, you’ve likely tried all things short of voodoo to get a better night’s rest. You also probably know that too much light at night will suppress the release of melatonin from your pineal glad, potentially disturbing your sleep-wake cycle. Because of this, it’s important for those with difficulty sleeping to limit their exposure to bright light at bed time.
In order to allow users to minimize exposure to extraneous light, XDA Forum Member icechen1 created NightLamp. This intelligent night light aims to help you sleep better by functioning as a night light that can fade off after a predefined interval. If you wish to turn the light back on after it has turned off, simply tap the screen or activate one of the device’s sensors such as shaking the device or saying certain voice commands. The app can also automatically turn itself on and off based on ambient light conditions. And what do you do when you need a brighter light? Simply flip your device over, and NightLamp will activate your phone’s LED flash.
Getting started is as simple as heading over to the application thread and giving the app a shot. Better sleep is just a few clicks away.
