Night mode is excellent for reading in bed when my wife is asleep! It would be nice if it could be set to become time sensitive (e.g. between 10pm-6am).

Ahh, interesting suggestion!
It would be trivial for me to hard-code this so that you could switch on "auto night mode" & then it would be in night mode from, say, 8pm until 6:30am? But ideally you'd want this to be connected with another setting so each person could set their own times...

Let me think more about this

Sometimes I have bible studies till 9 or 10pm but sometimes in bed by then so I don't know. It just occurred to me that there is an ambient light sensor - perhaps that could be an option along with a time selection option. And/or perhaps a simple sun/moon toggling icon as a manual override.

I implemented an auto-night-mode feature in And Bible using the light sensor. If it is dark And Bible switches to Night mode automatically, if user has selected Settings/Auto night mode. Experiment to see what light sensor values you get in different environments and then pick a value, below which you switch to night mode.

I like this because sometimes I wake up at night and want to read the bible in bed but am almost blinded by the normal black-on-white screen (try it). This feature saved my eyes.
