Best Night Light

Introducing Loomy Night Light!!

Introducing Loomy Night Light!!

Hello everyone

It’s been eight years since we first launched Best Night Light on the Google Play Store.

Since then it has been launched on the Apple App Store and the Amazon App Store, and been downloaded over 1,000,000 times!

Today It’s my privilege to announce that we are renaming the app to Loomy Night Light.

Why change the name?

Last year Google announced new rules relating to the naming of Apps on it’s store. These new rules mean that sadly we can no longer use the word Best in the name of our little app 😞

Initially we were saddened by this news, because we feel we have a bond with our users, and in turn Best Night Light has built quite a reputation for being a quality app which can genuinely help you sleep better at night. There are plenty of reviews on all three stores which can attest to this.

But once the shock had worn off, we started to see the benefits of rebranding.

How did we choose the name?

The name Loomy was chosen because it sounded like lumen, the Latin word for light. It’s short, snappy and fun. We also thought it sounded friendly and reliable.

What happens next?

Over the next few months we will be working on getting all three of the store versions of the app updated with the new branding.

The current version of Best Night Light you have installed on your device now will be replaced automatically with the updated Loomy Night Light app when it is released (unless you have deactivated auto-updates)

So just carry on using the app like usual 🙂

Best Night Light Update

Today we have rolled out a new version of Best Night Light to the Google Play store*. This update contains mostly bug fixes but we have managed to squeeze in a couple of additions for you all!

The first new thing is the option to remove the bokeh particles from the Lava Light. (The bokeh are the little white circles which move across the screen). There have been a couple of requests for this feature, so we have added it 🙂

The second new thing, isn’t really a new thing at all. It’s the welcome return of the Trophies! There are 6 to collect, but what exactly you have to do to unlock them is hidden.

Best Night Light is available from the Google Play Store, click the link below…

Get It On Google Play!

* Amazon App Store update coming soon. iOS release coming soon.

Best Night Light News

News about the update

I know we said we were aiming to have the Best Night Light update finished by the 1st of July, but sadly that day has been and gone and still we sit here in the dark musty corners of WotC towers coding away into the small hours.

I’m happy to say that all the hard work is paying off though and we have a very nice update shaping up for you.

We’ll announce the release on all the usual social media channels as soon as it’s live in the stores. But realistically we are looking at probably another two weeks yet before its finished

Other news

I’m also happy to announce that Best Night Light is currently installed on over 30,000 devices across the globe! That’s as many people as fit in our local football stadium! It’s nice to see so many people are using our app and leaving (mostly) positive feedback on the reviews.

We’ve also not forgotten about the fantastic prize giveaway we have planned to coincide (more or less) with the release of the new Best Night Light update! More news about this soon!

Best Night Light Update – New features and bug fixes

bnl-website-banner

In a few short hours, the latest version of Best Night Light will be available for download from the Google Play Store, there’s a link at the bottom of this post for those too impatient to wait for it to auto-update in the morning. This update includes the obligatory bug fixes, including a doozy of a bug which caused the ‘infinite’ night light duration to be considerably less than infinite.

There are also some great new features which have been added (Most of which have been suggested to us by people who use Best Night Light). You can now turn the button sounds on and off from the menu. There is also a great new screen lock, so no more accidentally turning the light off when your trying to read. And finally you can now choose any one of seven different colours for the night light, not only that but the app now remembers your settings from the last time you used it!

We hope you all enjoy the new update as much as you have the previous ones, and if you wanted to know more (or just wanted to update quicker) here is a link to the store page.

Best Night Light updated

The new update to Best Night Light went live on the Google Play Store today. It includes an update to the User Interface to make it a little more intuitive to use, there is also the addition of some new Lava Lamp modes as well as some general bug fixes and behind the scenes stuff.

Best Night Light is still our most popular app by far, having been downloaded almost 20,000 times now. It’s a great way to add some gentle atmospheric lighting to your personal space. It features 3 modes, a Night light which shines a gentle white light from your phone screen. You can set this to a timer if you like so it exits after a set amount of time; a Mood light which gently fades between a random series of colours; and a Lava lamp which fills your screen with colourful swirls and whirls to help you relax.

We’ve also given the Google Play Store page a bit of a refresh by completely redoing the screen shots, making them look a lot better (If you ask me, lol 🙂 )
