iOS 11 and redden keyboard option

Upgraded to iOS 11 this week, and when I was out with Sky Safari 5 Pro last night, I noticed the keyboard was no longer "reddened" even though I have the option turned on. Playing with it some more today, I thought maybe it was the new "tick keys" keyboard, and turned it off, but the problem was still there. Is it just me, some setting or is this a bug with Sky Safari 5 Pro and iOS 11? 

Thanks for your help!

    Jeff,

    Yes we are aware of that.  Apple changed something that broke our "hack" to put a red overlay over the keyboard.  I have found a work around and it will be in the next release.  I'm going to wait a week of so to see if any other issues turn up before pushing out a new release.

    I've found SS's night mode superfluous since Apple added the capability to redden the screen easily, and for all apps and modes.

    I agree this is a nice feature but is pretty hidden.  We still need to make SkySafari's night mode work as well as possible.
