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.
I use this app since 3 years. It is the most friendly screen filter i have ever used. I love this app. But unfortunately the secure app installation option has been removed. That option was used when installing an app from memory card or somewhere else other than playstore. You should add 2 things: 1. Thie secure app button which automatically pause "Darker" when installing an app. 2. An on-screen button that can be used everywhere so that we could get rid of pulling down status bar each time. This button should be like one tap button.
Auto-pause has been useless for the past several weeks. Even when set to zero lux in a bright environment, Darker can't decide what it should be doing and goes bright-dim-bright-dim-bright-dim while I'm trying to read. Auto-pause is why I paid for Darker, and if you can't make it work, I'll look elsewhere. I have a feeling it has to do with fact that, since Nougat, there are still bright elements on the screen and the screen is now generating its own light.
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.

▪ "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
