Turn off the screen backlight without switching off the screen! Perfect for listening to music videos.
Most video players stop playback when the screen is turned off. This app switches only the screen backlight off but not the complete screen. Save battery and enjoy playback without the backlight staying on!
To turn the backlight on again, simply touch the display.
Important: This app requires root. Use at your own risk. If you don't know what "root" is, then don't install this app. It won't work without root!
