Along with the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, Microsoft let its users download some classic Win32 apps right from the Windows Store with the help of the Desktop App Converter. Recently, all developers were granted permission to publish their Win32 apps to the Store. Afterwards, users could see the company added apps like Tweeten, Arduino IDE, Kodi and Evernote.

However, these are not the only Win32 apps coming to the store: F.lux plans to introduce its own app to the Windows Store as well. In case you don’t know, F.lux is an app that helps you protect your eyes when using a computing device by warming up the display and eliminating blue light, the type of light responsible for strained eyes and other issues with sleep and vision. It is indeed helpful for the eyes especially if you’re the type who uses a computer for 5-6 hours daily.

A user sent an email to the company and asked if it were planning to use the desktop bridge to bring their own app to the store, to which the company simply replied with a yes. Thanks to the Desktop App Converter, F.lux on Windows Store will work just like a Win32 app. If you have tested before the Win32 app, you won’t see any difference in the store.

One important thing to mention is that Microsoft might introduce a feature similar to F.lux. It seems that Redstone 2, the next update for Windows 10 Anniversary will arrive in 2017 with an addition called “Blue Light Reduction”. Meanwhile, you can use F.lux on the PC if you download it from the official website, or you can just wait for the app to come to the store.
