Perfect tool Easy to use, great at night or in class. 4/5 for reason below- Beware: screen shots taken while screen filter is on will be taken of the object with the filter on them, so they do not look the same as they would if you took a normal screen shot with the brightness turned down. I first used this app with an S3 but now I use on my Stylo as well.
Works great I didn't think it would actually work when it came to making my screen darker, BUT IT DOES! My phone screen setting still have it pretty bright at night, even on the lowest one. This let's you choose how dark, it even goes so dark where you can barely see. What I like the most is that it confirms with you if you want it that dark or if it was a mistake and also let's you choose the dark percentage. Its Great!
Extremely Useful!!!! This app (and the widgets) are extremely useful. I have always felt that the minimum brightness on most android phones was too bright when in the dark. This app solves that. My only complaint is that the Developer made the percentage down to 0.1. Why? My OCD likes round numbers, and it's impossible to have the filters as whole numbers. I don't want to see 14.7 and 39.9, I want to see 15 and 40.
Quick solution to overly bright screens!!! Installed on my rooted 4.2.2, provides app as a toggle able icon (enable/disable) which I can only see using in bright light. My auto bright sensor adjustments still works. It is satisfying to find such a quick & clean solution. But it may or may NOT save power ?
Cool Could u please include a way to quickly remove the filter thru the persistent notification, please? Right now clicking the notification does both remove the screen filter AS WELL AS open the app settings - I would love for it to just remove the filter only.... just like the Screen Dimmer app does! So maybe u could include that as a setting for "what happens when you click the persistent notification?" Maybe? Otherwise this app does the best in dealing with the Nexus 5 on screen buttons imo.
Best App EVER! This is the BEST app ever! I have the Samsung Note3 and use it at night time alot, to fully control the brightness is a miracle. Warning DO NOT PLAY with anything below 15-10 % as you may darkened the screen too much and won't be able to see. Not a big deal as I read this from a previous review, so I made sure not to go below this percent.
