Great app My Samsung Galaxy S4 screen is way too bright even on the lowest factory brightness setting - especially when trying to use the phone @ night. This app allows the screen to be "dimmed" even further, allowing much more comfortable use @ night. Doesn't affect navigation buttons but that doesn't bother me. Loses a star as brightness control in pull down is coarser than I would like - jumps 10% with each tap. 5% would be better.
I don't usually take the time to rate apps, but I love this one! I needed a dimmer for my super sensitive eyes at night, since the phone's automatic brightness filter just doesn't cut it. I've tried several other screen dimmers, which all worked. However, this is the only one that would automatically dim on a schedule without having to pay extra. It works beautifully. It's also extremely convenient being able to change the opacity from the notification bar.
Works could be better It works well. Careful, the setting that turns off button back light is on by default. Since the app can turn the back light on and off, I wish the developer would dim them by strobing them faster than the eye's persistance of vision to achieve a dimming effect. Alternately an on screen kindle fire style home, menu, & search button could be implemented so as not to loose the functionality of the buttons.
Just Amazing For months I've been settling with a screen where the dimmest setting is bright as hell. (Seriously samsung, wth?) Anyway it's a fast download and easy to use, the higher % the filter the darker the screen gets. I however have One Problem: when I'm setting the dimmer, the interface is very dark. So I'll darken the screen until I can see comfortably, then go to a preferred app and everything is much brighter, which is not comfortable. I understand why but it should be a lighter gray in my opinion.
This works as intended. If i were to change anything I would include an option to manually type in the filter opacity for a more precise adjustment. Also idk if it can be fixed by you guys or not but when "show touches" is enabled in developer settings the dot stays at an extremely high brightness same with notifications. Really great otherwise. 5 stars from me if those things can be fixed.
Awesome app, but..... I love this app because of the quick, no nonsense 1x1 widget used to activate dimming. Problem is that sometimes my screen automagically dims at 10:00PM even though I don't use the schedule option within settings (the times are even grayed out). Its happened two nights in a row while watching YouTube. Both times the video paused when the screen dimmed. Spooky.
