No longer fully functional, looks like it doesn't like the newest Android update. Can turn the filter on, but then it makes it so you can't use the screen at all. Soft keys still work, but the rest of the screen doesn't. So, it's useless; if you don't want to use your phone you'd just turn the screen off completely, not dim it further but then leave it on. I've been using this app since probably it first came out, it's been my favorite and I'm sad I have to find a new one.

Works great... Until Android 12 update :( I've used this app for years without any problem. The darkest setting in dark mode (white text on black) is too bright for nighttime reading. The brightness of the screen kept my wife up, so I looked for a way to darken it further. This app was it! The Android 12 update came along and the screen freezes. No screen input except for the notification bar. Needless to say, that doesn't work for me. Time to search for a new app! :(

I absolutely loved this app and used it for years, but changes to Android 12 made it unusable. The filter completely blocks access to the touchscreen. I'm not sure if the app is even still being maintained, unfortunately. I've dropped it now for Darker Pro. It has decent Tasker integration and so far meets my meager needs. Thanks for the good times, Screen Filter.
