Works to disable lights - DroidX rooted Works perfect for button lights to be disabled, but auto brightness could no longer be used! Even when I uninstall this app. Seams to have broken this feature on my Droid X but now works after a reboot.
great for blind users This app can come as close as possible to turning the screen off while still allowing the phone to function normally. Blind and visually impaired users who don't need the screen will definitely appreciate the extended battery life that comes from a super dim screen. I should note here that brightness settings below "20" appear not to survive a reboot, but I can just quickly run the app to fix this. In spite of this minor issue, this app still gets a 5 star rating.
Perfect app, but too much unnecessary permissons There are only 2 apps that can set the brightness level lower than 10 on my Motorola Defy+. This app is perfect, but I prefer the SuperDim [root], since that one does not require so much unnecessary permissions
Nothing darker Don't know why this is the only app that sets level to 2. And, btw, anything lower will turn off your screen! I wish auto went down to 2..
Brilliant I tried two other brightness programs and they didn't work. Android has a horrible feature where it's dimmed right down when it gets below 5%. This program (which requires root) overrides it and your phone is still usable and not still in complete darkness. If I'm out on a sunny day with less than 5% it doesn't matter anymore I can still see my screen!!
Works on Xoom, not on Nexus 7 Wonderful on the rooted Xoom, but not on a rooted Nexus 7. Try screendim on the N7, that works OK but washes out the contrast to get the brightness lower. Dev: $25 if you can get the brightness low like the Xoom, on the N7 without washing out the contrast. :-)
