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.

The only one that met my need I keep my brightness low to conserve battery, and this is only a problem when I walk out into bright sun. I can easily adjust the brightness with the pull-down slider if I can barely see my screen, but when I can't see the slider, it's hard to find. I put this widget filling up an entire screen just to the left of my home screen, so now I can swipe right and tap in the middle of the screen to set brightness to "auto" without having to be able to see the screen.
