Essential Apps

    Night Light FREE

    by Victor Ren

    Night Light FREE is the essential free night light app. This free app mimics a true night light by including that classic clicking noise. Some of the lights even have slow soothing movements similar to a lava lamp. There are 16 different lights included in this essential free app.

    Night Light

    by Geeky Lemon Development

    Night Light is the essential app for those that want a paid app. You can choose between three different light styles (light, pulse, or flash), seven different colors (red, orange, yellow, white, purple, green, and blue), and over 25 templates/designs. This is an essential app that continues to receive updates.

    iNightlight is an impressive app. The developers have thought this thing out and have included instructions on how to optimize your iPhone for nightlight mode. They describe the process of creating a paper tube that amplifies and subdues your iPhone’s light. It is a brilliant idea that can be applied to all of the other apps in this AppGuide. The actual app is quite good. There are 12 styles of light, a sleep timer, and a rainbow mode that smoothly transitions between the colors. This is a great app and worthy of your dollar.

    Night Light NYC lets you fall asleep to the beautiful Empire State Building. You can rotate the building around all 360 degrees. The imagery is beautiful and for many kids and adults alike will become your new night light.

    MoonLite is an app that is for those that want to go to bed to the light of the moon. This app displays a full moon and will even emulate sunrise. This is a nice free app for those that are more into the moon.

    Nite Light

    by Artag Tech

    Nite Light is a pretty poor app. The app title is kind of false advertising as this is more of a flash light app and a poor one at that. You can adjust the color to include red, green, and blue, or a simple white. This would be a good free app, but for $0.99 it is not worth it.

    Mighty Light ™

    by CrowdCafé

    Mighty Light attempts to mimic a true light bulb. We found the results not very good for those looking for a night light. This app is better for those looking for a light bulb replacement app.

    NiteLite Night Light

    by Ross Franklin

    NiteLite Night Light is quite frankly a bad app. We would be fine with this as an okay free app, but for $0.99 it is a waste of money. There is a sleep timer included and a few different color options. This is an app to avoid for now.
