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.
I absolutely love this dimmer it's simple never had a problem or glitch & I now love using my phone in the dark.. with this app. I can now look without my eyes hurting! I absolutely love the pro version it offers a few cool things like.. Automatic start/stop with sunset/sunrise or set your own times, the option to pick the color of the filter & widget. I could go on but I'll stop there lol. Thank you for a great dimmer app. Definitely 6 stars.
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.
Not working on complete display This app works fine with very minimum brightness, but it doesn't takes effect for full display. I'm using moto g 2nd gen. In this, in the bottom there are three software buttons for back , home in/out, and recent tabs. This app doesn't dim these three buttons . it works like as if a thin layer of black cloth is stitched on the display. Fix that n it will b WORTH 500 stars.
VERY IMPORTANT!!! PLZ READ Screen Dimmer is a very useful app although it affects system app: U might encounter a problem of unable to install any app from outside. The CANCEL will work but INSTALL wont. It is due to Screen Dimmer. Simply close Screen Dim to install app. If still it doesnt work clear data and cache of Package Installer n similiar. Then reboot. Mark it helpful to save many haird :p Also a suggestion. Could you Add a pause button rather then a close?
