Version 0.8.1:
- NEW FEATURE!
- Whitelist apps to bypass grey scale, take photos in color whilst your phone is in grey scale mode!

This app makes use of the built-in black and white device feature to provide a blue-light filtered screen without the use of an overlay screen, to help relax your eyes at night and disincentivise phone usage.
