Smart watches might not be an essential piece of technology yet, but the more apps and watch faces there are, the more useful they become. Sure, many of them are ill-advised and may murder your battery (killer app?), but that's the price you pay to find the truly good apps. Today we have many apps and watch faces, some of them are just for fun and others might be genuinely useful. You won't know until you check them out.

Twilight

Android Police coverage: Twilight Adds Support For Android Wear And Android TV

Twilight tries to hack your brain and improve your sleep by applying a red filter to lower the amount of blue light hitting your eyes. Research shows this light can negatively affect your sleep, and phone screens emit a lot of it. Watches too, but less so. The new Wear component of Twilight ties into the phone client so they both flip on at the same time.

--

Are you having trouble falling asleep? Are your kids hyperactive when playing with the tablet before bed time?
Are you using your smart phone or tablet in the late evening? Twilight may be a solution for you.

Recent research suggests that exposure to blue light before sleep may distort your natural (circadian) rhythm and cause inability to fall asleep.

The cause is the photoreceptor in your eyes, called Melanopsin. This receptor is sensitive to a narrow band of blue light in the 460-480nm range which may suppress Melatonin production - a hormone responsible for your healthy sleep-wake cycles.

In experimental scientific studies it has been shown an average person reading on a tablet or smart phone for a couple of hours before bed time may find their sleep delayed by about an hour.

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.

Get more from Twilight
1) Bed reading: Twilight is more pleasant on the eyes for night reading. Especially as it is able to lower the screen backlight far below the ability of the backligt controls on your screen

2) AMOLED screens: We have tested Twilight on an AMOLED screen for 2.5 years without any sign of depletion or over-burning. If properly configured Twilight causes less light emission (by enabling dimming) with more equal light distribution (dark areas of the screen such as the status bar get tinted). This may in fact increase your AMOLED screen life time.
