It’s no secret that Apple is strict about the apps that it allows in its iOS App Store, but the announcement that the popular F.lux light-dimming app has been banned is leaving the developers and the user base frustrated. F.lux is a simple app that adjusts the brightness and color temperature of screens at nighttime to reduce eye strain. It’s been extremely popular on desktop computers, but has always been noticeably absent on the iPhone. After finally hitting the App Store, it was removed by Apple almost immediately. Apple claims that F.lux did not use a public API and featured unauthorized side-loading software, which is not allowed. Apple gave F.lux developers no indication during the entire release process that this would be an issue. F.lux has proven to have big health benefits, which is prompting people to wonder whether Apple removed the app because it plans on releasing its own, similar feature or service in the future. No matter the reason, many people are left frustrated by the decision.
