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

March 29, 2015

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."

Hold Your Phone with Your Left Hand?

Not a problem!


Below are some frequently asked questions to help you decide if a lefty model Loopy is for you.  In short, it's all about which hand you predominantly HOLD your phone with :)


If you'd like to purchase a left-handed Loopy, simply type out 'LEFTY' in your order during checkout in the notes section. If you're ordering multiple Loopy Cases, please note which models you'd like a LEFTY version of as well.

Do I need a left-handed model Loopy?

The best way to decide whether you need a left-handed version is answered by 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 :)


What is the difference between a lefty and righty Loopy?

The loop angle. We set the loop at a specific angle for the most comfort and best performance of your case. You can see the loop angle below:

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.


I'm right-handed but use my phone with my left hand. Should I get a lefty?

Think about the question within the first FAQ question written here. This should help you determine what is best for you!


Anything else I should know?

Keep in mind that you will be able to use your phone one-handed with a Loopy. This is a game changer! Using your phone one-handed is awesome. Select your dominant hand based on the info above and you shouldn't have a problem at all :)
