This Simple App Makes Dark Mode on Your Mac Even Better

If you’re a big fan of Dark Mode, there’s a new Mac app that you should try.


Apple rolled out macOS Mojave this past fall and, with it, Dark Mode became available to all Mac computers. You likely know what Dark Mode is: the feature darkens your Mac’s color scheme to help whatever you’re working on stand out better. It’s ideal for anybody working at night; developers working with code particularly like Dark Mode.

If you’re a big fan of Dark Mode, there’s a new app you should try. It’s called Smart Brightness for Dark Mode ($6) and, according to the company, it “smartly adjusts your Mac’s brightness according to white or dark content on your screen.” Basically, no part of the screen gets too bright when you’re using Dark Mode, and this could benefit your eyes in the long run.
