App installation issue It's mandatory to pause Lux Auto Brightness whenever I am installing apps from sources other than Play Store or else the 'Install' option freezes and hence, it's a ★ ★ ★ from me until this issue is fixed. However, I must agree that I adore the option that allows me to set the minimum screen brightness and I also appreciate the option to reduce the screen brightness manually beyond default android zero level and even up to -100% which makes reading in a dark room really easy on the eyes.
Essential app! The default brightness manager on stock android is rather poor. On my Moto X 2nd Gen, the minimum setting would kill my eyes at night. Lux gives you much more options to closely control the brightness of your device. Unfortunately, the app used quite a lot of ram. Also, there is a bug on Marshmallow with the new permissions system (screen overlay).
Interferes with other, unrelated apps This app works well for monitoring display brightness, but it interferes with other apps for no reason. I tried signing up for Google Play Music Family and I could not sign up. I googled the error and found out that for some reason, lux was interfering with the sign-up. I had to uninstall lux, and then I was able to sign up for Google Play Music Family. Please look into this.
Any suggestions? So honestly this app is wonderful and I love it. But as an android user, I keep running into overlay problems with Lux. I gave Lux the overlay permission, which is fine by me. But whenever I install a new app that asks permission for various things, I always end up uninstalling Lux, giving the other app it's permissions, and reinstalling Lux. It is really not a big deal, but considering I have done this possibly 20 times already I would appreciate any feedback or help!
Perfect Thanks, my Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 brightness adjustment doesn't work and I curse it a night. I just installed this and it did the trick. I'll post back if anything goes wrong. So far very nice, should have installed this long ago. March 7 2016. Update; It's 3am and I'm really appreciating this new app
Very effective app! I use it on my LG G2 (VS980) and Samsung Galaxy Tab S . I have however found that this app interferes with several other apps by blocking button selection. When I encounter this interference I have to disable Lux in-order to use the infringed app.
- Many fixes, including sleep list not working on Android 5.0 and up
- Rename 'Auto' to 'Smart'
- Updated translations
- If using plug-ins, please check that Lux has been granted root access
