Dimmer is a simple tool that puts a black filter on top of all apps so that the amount of light emitted by your display is even lower than it would be with only lowest brightness settings.
Dimmer also includes "Timed mode" that allows you to set the times when you want the filter to be applied and removed so that you do not need to start Dimmer manually every night. If the filtering level seems too high or too low, you can simply adjust it in your notifications where you can also disable it completely.
RE ADD WIDGET AFTER UPDATE!!!
If you have problems with ad window int ICS - it's a bug in Launcher/Play/Market:
1. remove auto created shortcut from desktop
2. launch the BrightnessLevel from apps list
3. if you still can see ad window, press back until you get to desktop
4. try to run BrightnessLevel from apps list again, it should disappear.
I hope, Google can fix this bug soon!

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
Be careful! If you set the brightness too low, don't tap OK. Simply use the back button to discard your changes.
If you do set the brightness too low, press your device's power button rapidly until the default brightness is restored.

Best Display/Screen filter applies an overlay filter that acts as a dimmer to darken the screen and ensure your eyes don't hurt with display glare and brightness. It is a simple application that allows you to change the screen brightness, adjustable on screen control is top of all the windows. You don't need brightness widgets or other Brightness control applications any more.
Best Display/Screen filter is beautifully designed, simple, customizable brightness level application, which allows you to change very easily screen brightness. Will reduce the brightness of your screen lower than you can achieve with the default settings.
Using the Device Light Sensor values, Best Screen Filter intelligently adjusts the brightness of your display based on our environment needs. If you step into a dimly lit room, the best screen filter will automatically lower the brightness of your display to make it not only comfortable to read, but to also preserve battery power.
Best Screen filter has option to automatically adjust the backlight at fixed intervals (periodic mode), when a change in environment is detected (dynamic mode), or when the phone wakes from sleep. It's also possible to adjust the backlight manually. Simply disable automatic mode and you can use it like a traditional brightness tool!
Night mode is specially handled and all other conditions are handled in Auto mode by default.
- Custom & Auto brightness - Easy filtering to required brightness levels
- Sub-zero brightness to make reading in the dark significantly less irritating
- Battery efficient
- Backup to SD
- Handles inaccurate light sensors
- Logarithmic scale for fine-grained control
- Gradual fade for backlight adjustments
- Automatic night mode for comfortable night time viewing
- Add app specific exceptions via sleep mode
MODIFY SYSTEM SETTINGS: Toggling system settings
PERMISSIONS are needed for writing system brightness settings
- dimming the screen 15-100% (below minimum system brightness)
- screen color and a contrast adjustment
- system brightness 0-100% adjustment
- functional widget (on/off, system brightness, settings)
- autorun option
Some phones have a color tint screen. This app have a possibility to try to improve colors on this kind of the screen by setting an additional factor RGB.*
The range of the dimmer is from 15% to 100% (it allows to dim the screen below a min system brightness value). Make a relief for your eyes during a nightly reading.
Furthermore, you can change fast the system brightness too.
The additional contrast factor can try to make the reading or a picture viewing more comfortable on some screens.*
The widget provides fast on/off service with a shortcuts to the Adjuster settings and the system brightness settings.
The application has the autorun option which works with the dimmer set above 22% (for the safety).
A gamma adjustment is not possible to do.
*The colors and the contrast are done the best as can be, there is no possibility to access to the screen programmatically.
Even so, the app can be useful for some devices and very helpful in the reading or making images more natural on the overcolored screens.
It does not delete your music files, just the database reference to it.
This should help with duplicates.

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:
This app shows one Bro Code Rule a day for your enjoyment.
I hope you like it !
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.
So I wrote this quick app, to be an automatic soundboard which just loops droid sounds over and over.
It's really quite annoying.

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!

Is your Android Phone Slow? In need of a reboot?
I have an Samsung Galaxy SII Skyrocket. Dual core CPU, 1 GB of ram, and I noticed one day it getting slow.
I logged into the shell and traced down the problem. I noticed the Mediaserver service was using a ton of ram and was swapping.
So I killed it. And systemserver to fast restart the phone. I wrote this app to do just that! Now you can do a soft restart of your phone.
It's fast. It's easy.
With one press of a button, you can quickly restart systemserver and mediaserver. It's safe. They instantly restarted.
Try it today!
Oh, and please check out my other apps. I do a lot!

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.

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.
This app not written by Slush.
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.

John Earl Shoaff was an American businessman most famous for being the teacher of Jim Rohn.
He is one of the first most visible teachers of the laws of attraction and "The Secret".
His quotes are very well loved by Jim Rohn fans.
He explained success in easy to understand terms, and broke them down into laws anyone can understand.
The plugin determines if the amount of time since the device has booted is more than what you set.
So for example, if you set 5 minutes for settings you want to apply at boot, such as turning off wifi, after five minutes it will apply the changes.
Then, after every five minutes it will re-apply the settings.
It is intended for my Soft Reboot Plugin, so the device will do a soft reboot as often as you configure it. So for example; weekly, the device will automatically reboot.
