AUTOMATIC NIGHT MODE
Human eyes don't see well when it's dark around you. Blinding them with bright screen of the phone makes it hard to see the road ahead. Instead of making you decrease the brightness of the screen - we've created night mode in Anchor Pointer, which automatically switches to dark theme at night time.
