With the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, Microsoft made it possible to download some classic Win32 apps from the Windows Store with the new Desktop App Converter. The company recently started allowing all developers to publish their own Win32 apps to the Windows Store. In the past couple of weeks, apps like Evernote, Kodi, Arduino IDE and Tweeten came to the Windows Store, but we should see some more Win32 apps on the Windows Store.
Now, F.lux could also be bringing its own app to the Windows Store. F.lux, for those who don’t know, is an app that warms up the display of your PC at night depending on the indoor conditions. The app can be really helpful for your eyes, especially if you use your computer for 5-6 hours everyday. When a user asked F.lux if they have any plans to bring their app to the Windows Store, they simply stated “yes”:
For those wondering, the F.lux app on Windows Store should work just like the Win32 app thanks to the Desktop App Converter. If you have previously used the Win32 app, the Windows Store app shouldn’t feel any different to you.
It is worth noting that Microsoft could be bringing a native F.lux-like feature to Windows 10 called “Blue Light Reduction” with Redstone 2 — which is expected to arrive next year. In the meantime, you can simply use F.lux on your PC by downloading it from the official website here, and we’ll let you know once the app is available from the Windows Store.
