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.

Note: Notification is mandatory for this app because without it Android will stop the service too often for too long. There's no use in auto brightness if it doesn't work half the time. So before you give a one star review, consider this fact and my assurance that I'm trying to find a more user-friendly way. I will no longer respond to "it has an ugly notification" type of ratings.

Velis auto brightness aims to provide the best possible brightness experience by using your devices sensors to determine the environment you're in. You have complete control over how much brightness will be applied for any given light condition, from selecting the sensors used to fully customizable brightness graph. This is a replacement for system provided auto-brightness functionality usually found in Settings / Display / Brightness
- Initial configuration wizard for an easy start
- User-selectable sensors: light, proximity, cameras
- Supports custom sensors on phones such as Sony Xperia, SGS 2
- Brightness presets for every taste and screen
- Profiles (save the brightness graph under your own name)
- Fully customizable brightness graph to fit your needs or cover your sensor’s faults
- Extensive sensitivity adjustments (light change threshold, smoothing times up / down, boost threshold)
- Superdimming to make those shades really dark
- Excluded apps (will disable Velis Auto Brightness when they are in use)
- Launcher widget with on/off button, profile select button and a brightness graph
- Tasker / Locale support for many sensor readings and app settings
- Convenient in-app store for premium content (some tasker and widget functionality) and developer support
- Custom app language
- Additional brightness when charging
- Only uses sensors when screen is on conserving battery
Tasker plug-in / Locale plug-in: Provides conditions for screen on, calculated light reading, proximity sensor reading, calculated brightness. Exposes many settings to locale / tasker for detailed adjustment from these managers. Some of this functionality is premium content available through in-app purchase.

The autor will not be liable for any (un)imaginable inconveniences, including, but not limited to your phone frying or your screen starting to shoot launcher widgets at you. :)

Blast away klingons and menial chores in a fun way with a trek themed todo app!
There is an in-app purchase ($2.49) for the ability to change settings from the defaults & extra graphics, but there are no ads or limits otherwise. That's a little steeper price than I would like to set, but believe me there is no fat cat here, mainly this app is created and maintained as a hobby.
Email me if there are any questions or suggestions for new features, or to fix any of the language translations: german, italian and spanish are 'attempted' so far.
Organize well, my friends, and keep trek alive! TOS, TNG, DS9, the new movie stuff, all of them!
Here's a neat site about building a real enterprise.
Permissions are at the minimum, internet is for voice-to-text (provided by google). Again, there are no ads, tracking or anything that the app does outside the obvious intentions in the screenshots.
* I purchased but the options are still locked, what's wrong?
Please hit the 'Recover unlock' button, it'll work as many times as you need it-change/upgrade phones or anything, the unlock covers all future features & updates too.
For a few people, uninstalling/reinstalling the app has fixed it when it didnt seem to work.
If it doesn't work on your phone, or if you change your mind anytime, email me for a refund (even months after purchase OK). ( email@example.com )
* Google calendar support?
I hope to be able to add it, I haven't figured it out yet
* Landscape mode?
Early design decisions make it hard to add it now.. time permitting, I'd like to rewrite parts of it to support landscape
* Higher resolution graphics?
I plan to add a 1080p option with the next refresh of some of the visuals. Currently app visuals are based on 720p, it should be pretty sharp on phones, but it's not really a tablet app.
Thanks for all the feedback! I try to accommodate everyone's requests

Welcome to a Klingon themed todo app, a star trek app with some practical functions. This app is a spin-off of my federation themed todo app called 'Star Trek ToDo Agenda', except themed for klingon graphics & sounds. It is functionally identical to the federation one, but maybe more subtle, for first-timers you may want to try the federation version first. The apps are functionally identical, just different hotspot locations to go with the theme.
The ToDo app, in my opinion, is a pretty advanced agenda style todo list, it does the ToDo essentials in minimal intuitive taps, but it's not a full-blown PIM. I'm not sure how ppl have time to keep full-blown PIMs up to date... so this is my ideal pim actually, besides the theming.
6/7 New! Homescreen widget and notifications are a new addition and will improve with time. Right now the widget is just functional and not very themed.
For further questions or suggestions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Description of Permissions
billing - for the optional in-app donation/unlock.
sdcard/storage - the app stores some tiny data/graphics in a folder. just delete sdcard/sta_photos to totally remove this app (after uninstall).
set wallpaper - not available yet, but i'd like to add in a couple nice trek wallpapers used in the app that one could set to their homescreen if desired.
that's it, no internet access, no ads, no funny stuff; all stanlm apps are focused on simplicity.
oops, it does use internet and record audio now (7/10), that was for the new voice-to-text option. that is all it is for.
The graphics do take some memory, it is designed to look great specifically for the latest superphones (720p hd screens), but should be okay down to pretty old phones (which aren't that old ;).
The app does not run unnecessarily in the background, unless you have the widget turned on in which once a minute it's checking for alarmed tasks and updating the countdown on the widget if the homescreen is visible. But you don't have to use the widget if you're concerned about the battery for that. There is no other background process that runs, no ads, no internet, nothing to do when the app is not active.
Thanks, and let me know what you think! email@example.com

New, totally free. no ads, no permissions, no cost.
This widget is very simple, it might seem too simple, let me explain why I made it and what makes it a little different.
Other date widgets have lots of themes or options, instead, this one focuses on one particularly elaborate pre-rendered layered theme. If you need a lot of options, you'll want to pass this one.
If you happen to like this particular calligraphy typeface, that has been adapted to a mobile date & time widget with carefully tuned blending and shadow effects, then you might find this widget a fun option to have on your phone.
Side effects include time in 24h or am/pm style, and tinting options available in 3 or 5 colors at the moment, and I'm open to add more options on request.
Justification is fixed to the right and size options are from a few widget size selections. For the most part it's going to look like what is shown in the screenshots above. (You can turn off the 'stanlm apps' label in the options, it's not an annoying always-there label)

Simple ToDo List
Powered by a super-charged Agenda view, always see all your tasks on two scrolling panels, left side for today and older events/tasks, right side for everything in the future. Simple, to the point.
Tap anywhere around the top of the app to switch modes. Just some basic modules to help make it fun to practically use these wonderful screens they put on these phones.
Innovative background/theming system uses photos on your phone instead of you needing to pick from themes submitted by other users or by the app author. Transparency and blending effects makes it more fun than a simple background swap.
For any questions, please email email@example.com
Features the stanlm zen interface:
* Automatically blends easily with photos from your camera, phone, other apps and the web. Get photos from: camera, internet, Dolphin, Flickr, Picasa, Facebook, PicSpeed Wallpaper, WallpaperCASA, Zedge, Flickfolio, Picfolio, Review 500px, Wallbase HD, SantaBanta, Tumblr/Stumblr. Any app or websites that can save images to your phone **
* Automatically switches themes to keep things fresh. Adjusts color tinting, brightness, blending & translucency effects to make the app feel like it was designed for any photo (or it could be art, manga, whatever..).
All stanlm apps are ad-free, minimal permissions and do not install or run any services and collects no information about you. Just a one person developer here that wrote these apps for my own use and wanting to make my 10,000 photos feel more alive. Internet and audio recording is for voice-to-text function only. there are NO ads in this app.
Let me know any feature requests or issues that come up. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
** Tip: Some of the photo apps mentioned do not have a 'save image' button, but they do link to opening the photos in the browser, which is then easy to save by long pressing on the photo and clicking 'save image'.
