    Very nice! While I like seeing software developers (including the Android team) address the issue of using a phone at night, it kind of surprises me that it's taken this long for them to do so. Is it because our screens keep getting brighter?

    Also, glad to see the continued development on Nova. Seems like the best launchers lose steam after a while, but they've been going strong for quite a while.

    not only at night but "night theme" could also be named "amoled friendly", saving gobs of battery usage by those brighter and bigger screens. Since amoled is officially less expensive now than LCD to produce I hope Google will jump on the night theme bandwagon with their bloatware apps. I'd love to have inverted gmail, calendar, etc. ability.
