Capacitive Buttons Pro

Control the brightness of the capacitive buttons (the back, home, and recent tasks buttons) on many HTC devices. Root is required in order for this application to work, but it works with most ROMs.

The "Pro" version is exactly the same as the "free" version, but will receive updates sooner than the free version. New features that are added to the "Pro" version will be added to the "free" version within 2-4 weeks. For example, the new features added to v1.0.13 were released in the Pro version on Nov 13, 2013 but were not available in the free version until Dec 07, 2013. So if the "free" version works for you then you can continue to use it free of charge.
