It’s a useful app, but Apple doesn’t think much of the way it installs onto your iOS device.

Apple had contacted f.lux Software to say that the f.lux for iOS download is in violation of the Developer Program Agreement, the criticism focusing on the way f.lux uses a sideloading technique to install.

f.lux, in return, stated that the updated Xcode signing allowed use of side loading, although Apple indicated that this wasn’t the case.

F.lux is a free program that changes the lighting conditions of your screen depending on the time of day and the light available around the device, thereby helping to promote better body rest and sleep functions.

For users still interested in installing the f.lux app on their iOS device, f.lux software has provided the developer tools and a workaround via their web site.

We’ll have additional details on this as they become available.
