Irlen® Colored Overlay App

Irlen® is proud to announce the new Colored Overlay App for Android phones and tablets. As the originator and world leader in using color to reduce strain and fatigue when reading or working on computer or other screen devices, it was only a matter of time before we brought our evidence-based technology to the digital screen. Irlen Colored Overlays for Android can increase your comfort, fluency and accuracy when reading, and allow you to read and work on your device for longer periods of time without strain or fatigue. This App brings our proprietary technology directly to your Android smartphone and tablet, where you need it most. It allows you to select from 10 preset Irlen Overlay colors, or create your own custom color, and then apply your color to the screen of your device. Your chosen color will overlay your screen no matter what other application you are using, reducing eyestrain and discomfort whenever you are using your device. Whether you are reading email, surfing the Internet, paying bills, or shopping on Amazon, your Irlen Overlay will always be on, making your task easier and more comfortable.

Our Colored Overlay App is easy to use and provides the same benefits as the Irlen Colored Overlays you use for books and paper. Simply turn on the app, select your color, adjust the density using the slider, and apply it to your device. The App will remember and automatically reapply your chosen Overlay even when you shut down and restart your device. If you want to change your color, or remove your overlay altogether, simply go back into the App at any time and make changes or turn it off.
