Brightness Widget - Backlight!

Brightness Widget - Backlight!


Backlight! is a free brightness app/widget for Android that changes your devices’ screen backlight with a single click. It also allows complete custom brightness levels. You can even assign it to a gesture or a main dock for easier access.

NOTE:
1. Any extra permissions like read phone state are due to admob ads identifying unique installations. I'm looking into a way to make this not required.
2. Doesnt work on Sense UI devices (i.e. Hero).
3. Potential conflict with Juice Defender. JD seems to negate any requests of this app to change brightness.

Android recognizes values from 1-255 with 1 being darkest and 255 being brightest. It also has support for automatic brightness. Default levels are 1, 50, 150, and 255 respectively. To enable Auto Brightness you can use the letter 'a'.

Backlight! controls the screen brightness level only. It does not adjust keyboard brightness or other light features of the phone.

Upgrading?
Don’t forget to add/re-add the widgets to the home screen!

Recent changes:
1. Enhanced icon.
2. Added disable to intensity popup duration if intensity checkbox isn't checked.
3. Added description about setting brightness values directly to the preference dialog window.
4. Cleaned up the setup window.

Best so far I read the first dozen non-5 star reviews and it is apparent that those reviewers are stupid and lazy, as their complaints stem from not reading in-app instructions. Unfortunately, you don't have to have common sense to use the Internet.

♥ Very, very useful. Though the customization of brightness values would be easier in % than in 0-255.

Loved the widget after 3 minutes use Would like a different image for the widget, or choice of images, but mainly rocks! The only other thing I'd get rid of is the icon in the app drawer. 4 stars until these are fixed.

Screen shutdown timer It would be great if you implement an screen turn-off time selection. Just waiting hopefully.
