    Question Night Vision Mode

    (Note: I tried to search, but came up empty)

    Does anyone know if there is a setting, or an app, to turn the display red?

    I do a lot of science-type stuff (astronomy), and also photograph at night. I used a red-tinted flashlight, so as to not ruin my night vision. I would love to be able to use my phone while shooting, or doing astronomy stuff out in the dark, and not have bright white glow from the phone.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    No. There is an enhancement request in for that feature though.

    I am looking for the same. For now I put the Droid into a red plastic bag.
    I can't wait for a night mode app or setting to make this easy!

    The screen backlight is white. Night mode would involve changing the color scheme to something like black/red along with being able to dim the screen backlight. Right now the map & nav apps don't support that.

    From what I gather, they are looking for something that basically adjusts the hue of the screen to red, so that you can still function it, like to check emails and stuff, but the screen would just show shades of red and black, like as if you put it in a red plastic bag, as another poster suggested.

    Not really. "Night Vision Mode" is basically a red cast over everything. You can still use the phone.

    If you (or anyone else) has used the app "Google Sky" you can see what I mean. When using the app, you can - in the popup menu - "toggle night mode". You will then see everything on the screen is red - no other colors.

    That's what I am looking for. Some quick little app that turns the colors to red (no white screen at all).

    For anyone who does a lot of stuff at night, having excellent night vision is a bonus. The longer you are "in the dark" the more you will be able to see, as your pupils dialate, allowing more light to enter your eye. It can take up to 30 minutes for your eyes to become completely dark-adapted, but only a second with a white light to have it ruined. Check out any observatory, and you will not see any white lights used at night. Either no lights, or dim red ones (the red color doesn't affect eye dialation).

    Heh, I'm not even looking in that area. I'd just like to be able to send text messages, use the phone, Twitter, etc. without ruining my dark adaption at night.

    I would love to see maps & nav behave like like the media dock home screen. Press the little lightbulb icon and the screen dims.
