You know who you are.

You take a million photos on your hella bright iPhone at sold-out shows. You just NEED to Snapchat this song to your friend real quick because oh my God they love this song. You need to tweet this video so people know you made it to this killer show and they need to know you’re #blessed.

I get it, I’ve been there. But luckily, there’s help.

Some French people (look at them hanging at the Moulin Rouge in the vid below—comment prévisibles, amirite?) made an app to help concert-goers be less annoying. And because there’s nothing worse than not being able to see that song you’ve been waiting for because a barrage of cell phone videographers have got their bright phone light shining in your face, this is high time to get this app.

Kimd as it’s called, decreases the luminosity of your phone to 10% and layers a thin black veil with 30% opacity on your screen. It’s minimalistic, it’s free, and is easy to use. As Digital Music News reports, all you need to do to use it is, “one tap to focus, one touch to shoot, one longer to record.”

Its Android adaptation is on the way.
