Screen Dimmer enable you to low the brightness of your phone or tablet even lower than what you can do by default in order to avoid headache and eye pain in a dark environment or at night. If you own an Amoled screen, this app will even save your battery because the black pixels actually turn off on an Amoled screen (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AMOLED#Comparison_to_other_technologies). It is also scientifically proved that blue radiations can cause insomnia (http://chriskresser.com/how-artificial-light-is-wrecking-your-sleep-and-what-to-do-about-it), preserve your sleep by changing the filter's color to red or brown! (pro version only)
Its design is simple and appreciable, you can't dislike it!

Ever wake up in the middle of the night to check your phone, only to be blinded by the light? Your phone is on the lowest brightness setting but it still burns your eyes? Never have that happen again!
Super Dimmer not only dims your phone lower than the manufacturer or other third-party apps allow you to, but it also turns off the hardware buttons' backlight, and automatically turns itself on at night and off in the morning! It is also highly configurable - change the dimness level, when to turn on, when to turn off, etc.
You can also launch the application whenever you want, even if it is not night time. Worried about being obnoxious at a movie theater? No problem! Just launch this app, set it to manual mode by checking the "Ignore Power Toggle" button, and never feel self conscious again.
Due to popular request, I've reverted the app to allow for a clearable notification, this time with a setting. (notification can be completley hid in PRO version). However, due to the way Android works, checking this setting will lead to unstable behavior. It is NOT recommended. To avoid bright flashes, leave this setting as-is, with the non-clearable notification.
It has also been shown to save battery on certain devices (most Samsungs, Moto RAZR / RAZR MAXX, Nexus, and most Nokias)
Don't forget to add Super Dimmer to your exception list if you use a task killer!
On first launch, hit the menu button and configure the settings to your liking. Hit "Apply Settings" when happy. If it is not within the time you set for the app to turn on, toggle the power to turn it off. Or, buy the Pro version which has a notification icon with the ability to toggle the dimmer on and off :P. Note: Turning on the screen sets the dimness according to the time of day, if "Ignore Power Toggle" is unchecked (OFF by default). If it is checked, dimmer only turns on manually.
This app is completely free, and ad-free. I make absolutely no money off this. If you enjoy this app, please purchase my $1 theme found here: https://market.android.com/details?id=com.dberm22.theme
Donations welcome by purchasing 'Cleaner Pro'
Thx to DipeshB for the idea.
Touch again to restore brightness.

"To put it simply, Lux kicks the pants off of Android’s stock brightness manager, and it’s worth every cent." - Lifehacker
"Lux is a third-party app that allows you to easily calibrate your phone’s brightness sensor, saving you battery power and reducing eye strain if your phone is normally too bright in dark rooms." - HowToGeek
Lux isn't your ordinary brightness app. It intelligently adjusts the brightness of your display based on the environment you're in. If you step into a dimly lit room, Lux will automatically lower the brightness of your display to make it not only comfortable to read, but to also preserve battery power.
Lux is also able to adjust the screen temperature of your display automatically to make it appropriate for night usage. At sunset, you can have Lux automatically warm your display and switch to your Night profile. If you're an astronomer, you can enable astronomer mode to cut out harsh white light. If you have a root enabled phone, you may even be able to apply these enhancements at a low level with Lux's plug-in system.
Perhaps the best thing about Lux is that you can teach it how to behave. If the backlight is too bright or dim for your liking, simply open the provided Dashboard, adjust the brightness slider to the level you desire, then hold the link button. Lux will use this new 'link' as a reference in future.
Give it a go! I want you to test Lux for more than the 15 minute refund period offered by Google. I understand that some devices may not have the best quality light sensor, and that you may need more time to play around with settings. If you find that Lux doesn't suit you after the 15 minutes is up, you can request a refund within a week of purchase via e-mail - no questions asked.

and how many milliamps are being delivered.
This helps me determine which charger in my house is the fastest, and helps me evaluate how good each charger is.
Currently it is known working on the Samsung Galaxy S2.
It DOES NOT work on the Samsung Galaxy S3.
If you know how to measure battery charging milliampres, please help on the forum topic:
This should be used alongside Seeder or in conjunction with your own performance testing.
There is currently some discussion the loading apps requires there to be random numbers available.
I got the idea after reading over this forum post:
I read up about random entropy seeding and I'm using the following values:
Do not randomize address spaces: Performance Gain at loss of security?
busybox sysctl -w kernel.randomize_va_space=0
Minimum number to write random numbers: (Goal is 4096, so this is 25%.) Observed value 133 at beginning.
sysctl -w kernel.random.write_wakeup_threshold=1024
sysctl -w kernel.random.write_wakeup_threshold=4096
Minimum number to read random numbers: // gives it more time to read?
sysctl -w kernel.random.read_wakeup_threshold=512
Also interesting: I took a bunch of screenshots for this app release, and the number dipped down quite a bit..
I do this whenever I see duplicates in the music list, or when I manually add and media to the device over USB.
It works with the newer phones including 4.0 ICS/Ice Cream Sandwich and 4.1 JB/Jelly bean, and now 4.2.
To test the media scanner or to clean out the media cache:
Go to settings.
Click All Applications tab.
Click Media Storage.
Click Clear Data.
Now run Force Media Scanner and click the Scan button.
It will take a long time the first time you do this, as it has to read and process each video, and music file on the device.
Afterwards, runs will be much faster, and it's just updating the media store.
It's new, so if you have any issues, please email me.
It also tells you if that device is enabled, a feature no other NFC tester app on the market has!
I bought a ton of NFC tags to test the apps I am writing. I'm really appreciate it if you guys bought one.
Additionally, be sure to look for my new app NFC Robot Task Assistant! I'm releasing it soon, and it's going to change everything.
I got NFC working on my Samsung Galaxy SGH-i727 Skyrocket!
See the post here if you have one of these phones:
Update: I also got NFC working when the screen is off:
It does not delete your music files, just the database reference to it.
This should help with duplicates.

Jim Rohn is a motivational speaker who has changed my life.
His quotes stop me in my tracks. Simple and powerful, these words shed brave insight into a scary world.
Each day, a new quote is shown. He tends to be understated, so it helps to have time to think about each quote.
Jim Rohn was by his own admission a poor boy raised in obscurity. A native to a small town farming community, he found wisdom with J. Earl Shoaff, who explained life and philosophy in terms of farming and growing.
Jim Rohn and his lot such as Dennis Waitley were some of the most famous believers of The Secret or visualization of the 1900-2000s. He did ground it in reality, however, as he advocated working towards your goals. It wasn't enough, he said, to dream and design your future. You had to stride towards it. The world will meet you halfway, and friends and acquaintances will work to help you when you deserve it.
He was the famous mentor to Tony Robbins. And now, looking back, you can see Jim Rohn's philosophy echo through Tony Robbins. Tony is the Why Guy... who works from what people's motivation is. Jim used to say, When the why gets clear and powerful, the how becomes easy.
Don't forget to check out my other apps, including a J. Earl Shoff quote a day!
It displays Astronomical Twilight, Nautical Twilight, Civil Twilight, the actual Sunrise and Sunset times.
Great for running, jogging, bird watching, fishing and/or hunting, astronomy, photography, outdoor activities, and much more!
I found that I wanted to know what time twilight would start every morning so I could go for a run just as the sun rose.
It uses Location Services to determine the GPS coordinates and network services to offload the math.

It's intended for use with Slush's BitcoinCZ Mining Website at https://mining.bitcoin.cz.
You must have your API Key in order to use it. I recommend copy and pasting it, because it's easier.. open the bitcoin.cz webpage and copy the api key and then launch this app.
It shows key statistics as provided, including support for up to four workers showing Score, Hashrate and Shares for each.
It also shows the estimated reward, unconfirmed reward, and confirmed reward in Bitcoin fragments.
New: Added total reward by request.

Search simply and view results easily with the most common appearing first in the list.
Stanford recently did a statistical analysis of the FDA drug adverse reaction and side effect database. They published their results and made them available to the public.
However, the mountains of data they published led to a mountain of results.
A simple interface for searching them was required.
After reading an article from the Stanford team on Slashdot, I decided Android was the perfect interface for this.
Added a letter chooser to make searching faster.
My sincere thanks to Nicholas Tatonetti at Stanford for making this possible.
Removed AdMob and AirPush Ads. I hate them. I really hate them. This app is smaller, faster and better than ever before.
If you like this app, please check out my other apps!
Please give it +1!
It fades out your music in the time you specify.
It's like a musical hour-glass.
It's great for timing a shower, timing your child homework, or listening to music before you go to bed.
When I was in school, I used to listen to Delilia on the Radio every night until I would fall asleep. I'd wake up every time at two A.M., turn off the radio and try to fall back asleep.
UPDATE: With the iHeartRADIO, now I can drift off to sleep listening to the Radio just like when I was a kid!
So, to use it, start whatever music you normally listen to, and then open to Fade to Black, slide the time slider to the amount of time to fade out, and enjoy!
I hope you love this app! Please +1 and Rate it! Oh and please check out my other apps!
It may not be a complete list, however, every effort is made to make sure it's complete.
I made this app one day after realizing one didn't exist on the Android Market.
