i dont see where the problem is?
...which f.lux have a patent pending on, and can show bad faith due to the pulling of their sideload.
This might not go all that well for Apple.
Of course, it's a completely stupid thing to actually receive a patent on (palette modification over time?), and I don't think software should be subject to patent claims in any case: but Apple kind of do have it coming.
Why does anyone care?
iTards already signed away their freedom, they knew that Apple moderated everything they do on their devices.
It's like going to prison and then not being allowed onto the internet while you are 'in'. They knew full well how the system operated, and whose interests they cared about most.
I personally don't give a shit and will disable the option that fucks up my display colors. Here's a tip: Phone screen keeping you awake at night? Turn off the fucking display and go to sleep.
My fucking blackberry had it since 2013
>...which f.lux have a patent pending on
>patent on changing colour temperature
Lord save me from this retarded world.
I remember one time I brought my iPhone to an Apple Store because the ear piece broke and the 'genius' freaked out because the screen was discolored. They replaced my phone outright, no questions asked, no charges or fees.
I had flux running in the background.
It was using private APIs, which is against the rules. So they were distributing it as a binary blob outside of the app store. Obviously Apple did not appreciate this. They would have done the same for any app. Now these policies might be too restrictive for your tastes, but don't think that the reason they shut down F.lux was because they wanted to steal the feature.
They will probably implement this in the next version of OS X, too. It's called getting Sherlocked, and it can happen on any platform that you don't own yourself. Third party devs are always at the mercy of platform owners.
My shitty Chinkshit Redmi Note 2 with CM does this already.
It changes the white balance of your device to a warmer color later at night so that the blue light from your display doesn't interfere with your sleeping patterns. Google it, retard.
It didn't. It wasn't on the App Store. It was available for download from their website, to be sideloaded with Xcode.
>Yesterday we shared that the popular automatic screen brightness adjusting app Flux had found a way to make it from the Mac to iPhones and iPads on iOS 9. This afternoon the developers behind Flux announced that the app will no longer be available on iOS at the request of Apple. In a blog post sharing the development, the developers behind the app said that Apple contacted them to say that the app violated Apple’s Developer Program Agreement. While the app was unofficially supported on iOS 9 as a sideloaded app and not an official App Store app, Flux did use Xcode signing to work properly on iPhones and iPads.
>Flux on iPhones and iPads with iOS 9 was originally made possible due to limitations being lifted around Xcode, which is available for anyone to download from the Mac App Store. Flux no longer being available is the first major instance of signing apps with Xcode and sideloading them unofficially without the App Store going sour.
What is it with 4chan and emboldening morons like yourself to use such strong language?
I for one am grateful for Apple to have invented another great app le beneficial for our health instead of this niggardly phony imitation.
RIP Steve Jobs, founder of the modern desktop and mobile experience
If flux was denied access to the apple store for violating terms and users want it so bad they are willing to side load, then its a good move on apple to give the user what it wants. I don't see the issue with what apple did.
