RIP Iris mobile apps – Why we discontinued them

  • All our mobile versions of Iris are discontinued
  • We tried really hard for several years to make an awesome mobile app, but Android and iOS just don’t allow developers to make a good app for eye protection
    • The problems are many
    • On Android, we can only use screen overlay and it doesn’t cover the lock screen or the topbar
    • On iOS, you needed to Jailbreak your phone or sideload it and most people find the installation process difficult
    • This is why we decided to discontinue all Iris mobile apps and focus to make the desktop version awesome

Why did we discontinue our mobile apps

  1. Android and iOS change constantly and you can’t make a good eye protection app
  2. We have too much going on with the desktop app and can’t make everything awesome
  3. Every device is slightly different and we can’t make them work the same
  4. Smartphones are super toxic and unhealthy and the best solution actually is to just avoid them and work on your PC when you need to

  • Just as customer feedback, I would like to point out that it is an extremely difficult and almost impossible multi-hour process installing this app into the iPhone. It’s ridiculous and you should consider making it a more user-friendly process like it is on laptops
