A simple tool to control automatic brightness. Works with real backlight, so it doesn't waste battery on LCD screens. Turn off standard auto brightness in settings, and other brightness apps or problems may arise.
How to use:
Use upper slider to select an enviroment brightness you want to adjust for.
Then use the lower slider to set screen brightness value for the selected enviroment brightness. If you tick the "Demonstrate selected brightness value", it will also demonstrate the selected screen brightness right at the moment.
Tick "Activate service", close the app and cycle screen off and on. The service will activate.
On some devices brighness sensor is non-standard, so you may have to run calibration from the settings (Menu - Settings - Calibrate sensor).
You also may detect minimum screen brightness supported by your device by selecting "Check brightness range" in settings so the app would work more efficiently. The screen may not go absolutely dim, that is normal, most devices limit lowest brightness.
