Darker (Screen Filter)

Darker (Screen Filter)


Darker can lower your screen brightness to extremely low levels, to help prevent eyestrain during the night. Use the built-in color filter* to adjust the color of your display, perfect for filtering out harsh white backgrounds during the night.

This app is fully functional and does not include advertisements. Additional paid features are unlockable through an In-app purchase.

Xiaomi device / MIUI users need to go to Settings → Apps → Darker, and enable "Show popup windows" for Darker to work correctly.

Paid features include:

» Auto-On & Auto-Off
» Start at boot
» Lower brightness below 20%
» Darken navigation bar
» Custom filter colors
» Root mode
» Customizable notification buttons
• Up to three buttons can be added for quick access.
• Buttons to increase and decrease the brightness (+5%, -5%, +10%, -10%)
• Buttons to set a specific brightness (@0%, @10%, @20%, ... , @90%, @100%)
• Quick toggles (stop, pause, reset, color filter)

Note: When manually installing APK files, Android blocks the "Install" button from being pressed when Darker is running. This is NOT a bug. It's a protective measure to prevent malicious apps from camouflaging the install button. Pausing Darker will solve this.

*The color filter is similar to how the desktop version of f.lux works. Selecting a redder color will reduce more bluelight emitted from the display.

Tasker Support
Darker has Tasker support, use these intents to send commands to Darker:

darker.STOP
darker.PAUSE
darker.INCREASE_5
darker.INCREASE_10
darker.DECREASE_5
darker.DECREASE_10
darker.SET_10
darker.SET_20
darker.SET_30
darker.SET_40
darker.SET_50
darker.SET_60
darker.SET_70
darker.SET_80
darker.SET_90
darker.SET_100
darker.TOGGLE_COLOR
darker.ENABLE_COLOR
darker.DISABLE_COLOR

Add the above intents to Tasker by going to Action Category→Misc→Send Intent→Action, leave the other fields default, and note that the intents are case sensitive.

These two intents below need an additional parameter in the "Extra" field

darker.SETCOLOR "Extra" field: COLOR:1~16 (Colors are numbered left to right, top to bottom)
darker.COLORSTRENGTH "Extra" field: STRENGTH:1~10

The intent below needs the "Target" field set to "Service"

darker.START

Makes autobrightness tolerable I purchased the pro license from within the app and use it on my Note 4, which likes to keep my autobrightness too bright, but manually adjusting the brightness is just a pain. The only problem I have is with the Pause in Bright Light feature which pauses Darker in fluorescent lighting, which isn't desirable. Please allow for more than just 100lux of brightness tolerance. WAY more. I'd like to see Darker pause in sunlight, bit not fluorescent.
