App Helps You Get To Sleep By Giving Your Phone A Natural Glow

March 29, 2015 1 min read

Ever notice the blue light that emits on a friends face when they're texting at night?  Some studies are showing that this blue light in the evening is hindering your ability to fall asleep.  

The app F.lux mentions on their site that this light resembles sunlight during the day: bright, blue-tinted light.  But what happens around sunset?  Sunlight gets much warmer, dimmed, and easier on the eyes.  F.lux mimics this natural cycle by dimming your screen and making the colors noticeably warmer.  If nothing, it certainly is easier on the eyes!

Here's a couple quotes from their site:

"F.lux...makes the color of your computer's display adapt to the time of day, warm at night and like sunlight during the day."

"The experimental research suggests thatan average person reading on a tablet for a couple hours before bed may find that their sleep is delayed by about an hour."

F.lux is available for Apple products and most laptops.  If you're on an Android device search the app store for Twilight!  Both have a pleasant user interface and are simple to use.

Hold Your Phone with Your Left Hand?

Do you HOLD your phone with your left hand?  If so, you'll want to request a LEFTY Loopy!  It's no problem because we make them, too! :)

In short, the hand that grabs your phone (most of the time) is the orientation you want for your Loopy Case.

All Loopy Cases are righties by default.  If you'd like a left-handed Loopy, please choose Lefty in the drop-down menu!  Returning Lefty customers: We now use this new drop-down system and no longer use cart order notes for Lefty noting as of summer 2020! :)

Additional Info:

Having trouble deciding?  Simply answer this question: which hand do you hold your phone with MOST of the time? If the left hand, please request a LEFTY model via the instructions above. If the right hand, no note is needed since this is the default orientation for Loopy :)

Can I still use my phone with my right hand if I get a lefty model?  Absolutely. Most of us here at Loopy HQ use our cases with both hands with EASE. Our loops are made to be comfortable and versatile for use with both of your hands. The loop angle is simply there to give you maximum comfort with your dominant hand, but does not hinder your ability to use it with the other.
