Night mode for Android devices

While astronomy apps tend to have a built-in nightmode, I was very pleased to come across ChainFire3D for Android which, among other things, has a global night mode that works on all apps. The red is a bit too bright, I think (maybe someone should email the developer about it), but otherwise I think it's great.

It needs a rooted device.

p.s. I'm still working away on AstroObserver. It's going more slowly than I'm used to, partly because I've been sick. I'm basing it on AstroTools, but I'm redoing a lot.

  1. Let me add that ChainFire3D works particularly well in combination with my free SuperDim.
