This lightweight app is fantastic for use during night time where the minimum brightness is still too high for comfortable levels. 20% is often all you'll need but color fidelity gets lost around this area. The only downside is that screenshots taken when the app is in effect will have a dark overlay based on your darkness settings, in which case you'll have to temporarily pause the app.
Simple yet fantastic! Love this app and regret not searching for it earlier. I wear glasses and of course it's difficult to wear them to bed where I often reply to emails and what not, I get headaches without them in the dark and from having a bright white screen. My low brightness is so standard but this app is perfect for all that and I love that I can slowly reduce the brightness as my eyes adjust not to mention the fact this app takes up such little space! Probably the only app that I've ever give 5 stars or a novel review
Eye-care at it's best! A tinted dimmer is an absolute necessity for everyone, no matter their circumstances. With developers ignoring WCAG 2.0 Accessibility standards & instead catering to their laymen customers' belief that a bright white background looks “cleaner”, even sporadic periods on the Net can harm one's vision (Me = 20/10 vision to glasses). Even Google ignores visitors' eye care in lew of the “cleanliness” facade. This is the best dimmer with easy-access controls, useful color options, & light on resources.
Does exactly what I need I wanted an app that would let me darken my screen at night, and this fits the bill. You can even adjust the color and how dark it is. The free version has no background ads or anything.
Dim Capacitive Buttons I did not have a review before my Marshmellow update. I should have given it 5 stars before, but now I am glad I didn't. Users on Marshmellow will not be able to dim capacitive buttons like they could while on Lollipop. I know the Devs do not read these, but they do not have a contact or support listed in their app.
In Nougat, enabling navigation button dimmer allows other apps to draw over Darker, which means I can no longer dim the whole screen. That sucks. Darker is asks always the first app Android shuts down in a memory crunch, every time, which is aggravating.

▪ "Darken navigation bar" option now uses a workaround which doesn't cause the brightness to flicker when switching apps, but will leave the navigation bar buttons undarkened (Only affects devices running KitKat or higher)
▪ Bug fixes
