I spend a lot of my reading in bed at night. There’s just not that
much time for me during the day to catch up. And when I do it’s dark
(obviously) and that’s when an app’s night mode comes in handy. Night
mode always shines when it comes to spend longer times in an app.
These are the apps I frequently use and love for their night mode:
Feedly - My current #1 RSS reader
Twitterrific 5 - That’s what I use for Twitter right now.
Instapaper - Where longer articles go to
The Magazine - An amazingly innovative magazine with all kinds if
Jasmine - The best YouTube client. Fluid and elegant.
Kindle - My ereader app of choice
Among those Twitterrific 5 and Instapaper offer an automatic switch
which I really really love. I wish all apps would offer to switch
automatically. I admire and appreciate the technical approach
Instapaper uses but I’m also satisfied with the apparently (at least
that’s what I think how it works) timely switch Twitterrific uses.
