Sufferers of Seasonal Adjustment Disorder (SAD) can finally rejoice with the latest applelet from MyWay Apps, iNoSad.
"This is brilliant," said App World! editor, Mac Buck. "Worth every cent of the ten dollar fee. I've not only bought it for myself, but I've given it the full five stars on the App World! web site, made it the featured app for 2012 and written a letter of commendation to MyWay. I don't actually suffer from Seasonal Adjustment Disorder but even I've felt rejuvenated."
According to Buck, who hasn't stopped talking since using the applelet, iNoSad works by projecting a very bright slightly blue light from the iPhone's screen. The brightness and wavelength are clinically proven to alleviate the symptoms of Sad completely.
"This applelet wasn't possible before the latest bright screen technology on the iPhone4," twittered Buck. "It comes with a timer to make sure that you don't accidentally give yourself sunburn."
There are a number of issues with the app that do not appear to have diminished its popularity.
"It eats batteries," said Buck. "But you can plug it in so that's not a problem. It can give you a tan if you use it long enough."
As well as being used to counteract SAD, iNoSad has other uses.
"You can use it as an art box display light," he said. "Although if you're going to use it for that, you'd probably be better with a bulb as it's cheaper. if you lose your keys under your car in the dark, you can use it as a torch. You can read by it, assuming your not using iKindle. If you're stranded on a desert island, you could use it for signalling, probably only once, given how fast it eats batteries."
When it's not dark outside, iNoSad can still rejuvenate people who get jetlag or work shifts.
"It's brilliant," said Buck. "In both meanings of the word. And it proves what I've always thought: people are solar powered."
