Models

Iris, Iris mini and Iris micro

on

I try to explain the diffrences between the Iris models in this article.

They are separated, because of the different size and code.

For example Iris micro is command line and really small in size.

Iris mini is about 10 MB and only tray icon.

Iris contains lots and lots of code and is something like 100MB. Iris also contains in it limited version called Iris lite, which has a little less functionallity, but it’s cheaper. You can switch between Iris and Iris lite with 1 button.

It may be a little confusing at the beginning, but this is the best way everyone to be happy.

Where to start

Always the first question people ask me is which one to download and I always tell them Iris mini, because you just need to double click it and it will work automatically.

It’s also free for lifetime. Basically Iris mini will automatically decrease blue light and brightness at night. Use this for a week or two to feel the difference.

  1. Hi. Will this work with an iPad mini? If not now, can you please work on it so I can use it. I love my Apple iPad. I have computer at work and don’t want to sign on at homes so it is very convenient for emails

    I would love to put this on my work computer but it looks like I have to add software and that is restricted. Only the administrator can add. Unless you know a way around that.

  2. Only newer ipads with latest OS have night shift. I have an older ipad 2.0 which i never upgraded because it would eat up all my space & it works fine. Any chance of a version for people like me? Thanks.

  3. Does this only work with computers? I have an android cellphone, a lap top and a kindle Fire that I need to download this onto. Which one of your Iris versions is best for each? Thanks.

  4. Hello, I just downloaded iris and i use dual monitors and there is something that constantly blinks or flickers when it is in use it’s very annoying and distracting, any help with this is appreciated. Thank you

  5. Hi,
    I also heard about you from Dr. Mercola’s article. I have a MacBook Air. What should I use?
    Thanks so much.

      1. Thanks so much Daniel for the info and for inventing such a fantastic product. The bright lights were really damaging my eye sight and everything was blurry or double. I just started using it today and I haven’t experienced any impaired vision while working on my phone. My son downloaded it to his phone and he loves it too. I will tell my friends and family about it also. Thanks so much again.

  6. Daniel, I am at this moment (Mon. am) trying to follow your directions for installing the Iris mini onto my Mac computer. However, the volume of the sound is so low, that I cannot hear much of it. Hope you can do something about this. I am most anxious to try the iris mini. I am not a hi tech person, and usually go very slowly on any changes I make on my computer. Thanks!

    ps – I am a painter-artist, and color exactness is important to me. Will the iris colors be much altered?

  7. Hi Daniel,
    Thanks so much for this software. I’m pretty technical so hopefully after reading Dr. Mercola’s article and your blog I can figure out the best practices for our 2 Mac laptops, one MacBook Air running El Capitan and the other MacBook running 10.6.8. On the older Mac, I don’t see options for automatic or manual, just scrolling through 3 apparently different settings, right? So I can see the “Off” Iris setting, the “Colors” setting, and I think I see a “Blue” setting. What is the Blue setting? My partner who uses the older Mac already has a pair of yellow glasses for computer and TV use. So, should she use Iris on top of the glasses (or Iris alone) and which setting of the 2 is best for the older Mac (Colors or Blue)? My second question is for our iOS devices, iPad and iPhone, we use Night Shift. But for a Kindle Fire 6, which she has, what do you recommend? I see her using the Kindle and it seems way too bright. Should she just lower the light or is there another approach that you know of? Should she use the glasses with the Kindle, and if so, just at night or all the time? I don’t use a Kindle, just the iPad and use the Night Shift option with Airplane Mode on whenever possible. Thanks so much and after the two weeks use as you suggest, we will purchase the Pro versions to contribute. You are doing great things and can’t wait to see your next projects! I have signed up for your newsletter to keep in touch as well.

  8. Hi Daniel,

    I’m also considering the Twilight free download which I believe has many possible configurations.

    Though if Iris is the only download that has
    flicker free brightness software (in addition to
    blue light reduction), then I will download Iris.

    Questions please:

    1) Is Iris the only download that has been flicker free brightness software?
    ….

    2) Is the PWM flicker free brightness software built into Iris mini as well as the larger Iris downloads?
    ….

    3) If Twilght also has flicker free brightness software, then what are the benefits of Iris over Twilight?
    ….

    4) When I click on the link you suggested for Android above, Play Store shows the message “Item not found. Retry”.

    Thank you!
