This developer cares. In his description, he said to email if there are any problems. I paid for the app, but was having problems with it staying dimmed. I have a rooted phone, and I assumed that I should keep rooted mode on. Little did I know, that this was the problem that was causing it to not stay dimmed when I locked my phone. If you are having this problem, TURN OFF ROOT MODE. This guy emailed me back for 3 days, and we solved the problem. This is a great energy saving and night reading app. Don't pass it by.
It's the only dimmer that works directly by adjusting contrast and brightness beyond the ridiculous default bounds. With the notification control showing 5 preset levels, it offers the fastest way of adjusting brightness. In contrast, filter-based dimmers are sluggish, not to mention the security loophole they constitute.
awesome! actually seems to dim backlight, unlike other apps that just apply a filter. doesn't wash out colours at very low settings. easy to start, stop, and save preferences. installed the trial and then immediately purchased full version, totally worth it for $1.10. flickers a little when switching apps but no other complaints!
Great but the overlay is too low on the layers in nougat. All pop ups are still regular brightness, so if you use anything with a pop up it temporarily blinds you. Otherwise awesome, looking forward to the bug fix.
Excellent but... Absolutely brilliant ;) but SG Note 4 (sm-n910g) with 6.01 stock screendim stopped working. Contrast works, but dimming not. V sad. Hopefully working again soon.
Works very well to adjust screen. Only reason not a five star is that the buttons in the drop down menu don't work since Android update (6.0.1 on Samsung Galaxy S6 Active). Otherwise, great application.
