Reading your phone in bed is ruining your nap schedule. But if, like me, we do it anyway, learn to do it though feeling like you’re staring into a object (or irritating your sleeping partner) by enabling “dark mode” on each app that offers it.

App-specific dim modes are opposite from Night Shift on iOS and Night Mode on Android, that reduce liughtness and blue light. Dark mode reverses a credentials and forehead colors, displaying white content on black. While Android also has a dark-colored theme, there isn’t a attractive approach to dim each app’s interface during once. iOS and Android offer an inverted mode, though this throws a whole interface into a nightmarish photo-negative palette.

Thankfully, some of a apps that keep we adult during night offer a dim mode that’s pleasing adequate to use around a clock. Here’s how to find dim mode on a many renouned mobile apps.


From your profile, open settings and name “Turn on night mode.” Twitter posted a demo GIF if we need help.


From your profile, name a rigging icon, afterwards Display. Scroll to a bottom. Under “Theme,” name “Night.”


There’s no full-app night mode, though in a settings menu, name Chats Chat Wallpaper Solid Colors and corkscrew to a bottom for a dim grey background.


Instapaper’s dim mode also lowers a liughtness on images. From any article, daub a “Aa” symbol and name a darkest of a 4 tone options. Or in a settings menu, spin on “Automatic Dark Mode” to switch modes during sunset.


In a settings menu, toggle “Dark Theme.”

Google Maps

Dark mode is useful for less-distracted pushing too. Navigation mode automatically goes dim during night, though we can force night mode underneath Navigation Settings Color scheme.


Adding night mode to this addictive mobile diversion is cruel. From a menu, appropriate right and name “Night Colors.” You’ll still never sleep, though your diversion will have a chill nightclub vibe.

There’s still no dim mode for a mobile versions of Gmail, Facebook, or Instagram, though a blog keeps lane of new dim mode releases, collects pattern mockups, and bugs app developers to supplement a feature.

Enjoy reading in bed with a small reduction eye strain. Just don’t rest on dim mode to urge your sleep, and don’t abuse it by tweeting during a film theater.
