Why is this not an advance option under brightness? It is nice to have the simple ability to change the percentage of the default auto brightness. I hope in the future this application will have its own menu that is accessible via settings instead of being through the notification drop down, which should still be an option for those who like it this way. Maybe also after\when the setting menu is there, how about an option to completely hide the icon. Cause frankly I don't use the turn off\on quick button since it works so well. An imo androids have to many.
Good app but I use this app a ton at night when my screen is too bright however, it doesn't save know battery, anyone who says it does, is experiencing a placebo. This app only applies a dark filter over the screen, like on Instagram filters. This has no impact on battery as the screen is still just as bright as it was before, just with a filter over it. You can see this by taking a snapshot on your screen with it on and off. You can see the filter covering the picture.
Simple Yet Effective Way to Dim Displays With Precise Controls All this app does is apply a black filter that darkens the display. This is perfect for AMOLED displays where the display drains more battery the brighter the display is. The app itself is lightweight, and allows precise percentage controls to control how dark the display will be, which is a big plus for me. The app does catch if you put the darkness level too low and will revert back in time, which is great since putting in too dark values can happen. It's simple, lightweight, and offers fine tuned controls. This is a must for devices that have displays that drain battery based on brightness.
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.
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.
Easy on the eyes This really helps if your eyes are a bit light-sensitive and you use your phone in the dark (like in bed). I haven't come across a downside to this app. If you take a screenshot it'll have the dimmer over the picture, but that's just a little thing to keep in mind for the rare occasion.
