Does "night stand" app lessen screen life?
Does anyone have any idea if the app "Night Stand" will shorten the life of my iPhone?
The basic premise is that you use your iPhone as a nightstand clock. I love the idea (and hate my current nightstand clock), and would like to use it, but not if it means my screen will end up being unusable or something after a few months?
Am I being foolish? Is there any proof that keeping your screen on for 10+ hours a day (with the clock on all night, and then daytime use) lessens how long it's good?

I wouldn't do it!
It will have an impact, there is no way around that. Products have a certain lifetime and this will cut it down. A lot of the time the lifetime is high enough where you would replace it for other reasons before it breaks, but in this case I can't say that I would recommend doing this.
Not only will it put more strain on the screen, but it will also increase the heat of the phone due to the screen and constant charging/draining which could lead to other issues besides the screen.
