The quickest brightness control. Much faster than any other control type, it's useful when stepping into the light. However, it's hard to find it in landscape mode. The optional delay reduces accidental changes, but it feels too long. A "slide only" option with a minimum slide length would work much better. The negative brightness removes more red than blue, so even though the display gets darker, it's still hard to look at.
Cant the colour be completely transparent? Edit : i am not able to make bar completely transparent there is some light patch on statusbar even if i slide the transparency elider to the extreme end but hide after sometime checkbox works fine! EDIT 2: im extremely sorry for the bad review and thanks dev for a quick reply... I was sliding the transparency bar to right side... Actually i think if we increase the transparency (sliding bar to extreme right) should be fully transparent not vica versa like it is in ur app... Its just my opinion! Thanks
Awesome! Best app ever. Edit: In Marshmallow brightness no longer gets overrided by battery saver, which is very awesome because now I can see the screen when it's sunny. However this app is a culprit in the "overlay" bug, so l have to force close it every time I want to grant permissions to other apps. New version: Randomly crashes at startup, so I have to reinstall. Also it doesn't automatically start after reboot.
Solved my note 7 woes! So with the note 7, Samsung changed it, so you have to swipe down the notification drawer twice to get to the brightness slider. And no matter how good, I will just never be a fan of auto brightness. This change drove me nuts, untill I found this. I set all my transparency settings to 100%. Couldnt be happier. This reminds me of an old jailbreak tweak I used to have. Great work!
Perfect!! 😎😎 After using my previous phone for a couple years, a Nexus 5, always with custom roms, I became accustomed to being able to change the brightness by sliding my finger across the taskbar. I have a new phone, LG G5, and I don't want to root it yet because I'm still paying for it and the warranty hasn't expired yet. But I can do the same exact thing with this app. It has better features also like showing a color on the top with indication to brightness level. I love that I can use it on the lock screen as well.
Love it... can use a phone without it... but I keep having to un-install it and having to install it aging after disabling the overlay settings that interfere with with every app you download.
