GSam Screen Dimmer Pro

GSam Screen Dimmer Pro


Is your screen too bright for reading at night? GSam Screen Dimmer will let you:

* Dim your screen below the built-in settings for some devices
* Set custom brightness settings, providing quick access to change your screen brightness
* Automatically change brightness at certain times of the day

Even on its lowest Brightness setting, many people find that their screen can be too bright for reading in a dark room. GSam Screen Dimmer often lets you dim the screen way past what the built-in brightness setting will allow, giving you a much better night reading experience. You can dim your screen without ever leaving the app you are currently running. Better yet, you can see the content on your screen while you dim - no need to launch into separate screens.

NOTE:
* Not all devices will let you dim the screen past the default settings.
* This app was designed with e-readers such as the Kindle Fire in mind, however it will function well on all Android devices, including Phones and Tablets.

Permission Explanations:
* SYSTEM_ALERT_WINDOW: Allows the dimmer to dim the screen below the system settings even when it's not the active foreground app. This is a dangerous setting to allow, however it is required for the screen dimmer.
* WRITE_SETTINGS: Allows the dimmer to update the system brightness setting.
* RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED: Allows the dimmer to automatically start up whenever you restart your devices. You can control this setting in the preferences.

Recent changes:
1.11
* Fix custom button setting for locale's that use commas for decimal points.

1.10
* Maintain screen brightness even when screen is locked.
* Add option to turn off button key backlight when brightness is set below a user specified percent rather than attempting to dim them (very few devices - if any - support dimming)

GSam will issue no refunds and refuses to fix. Since the update, it no longer dims - at all. GSam does not answer emails, and shows a certain amount of hostility towards customers. What was a wonderful and essential addition to Android, has become useless and annoying. How I wish I could get a refund! Do NOT buy this.

Huge Battery Saver Unfortunately, l'm stuck with a phone on contract that doesn't have great battery life. Thanks to using this app my battery is lasting much longer. There is a small learning curve for learning to use it to best advantage but it's worth the effort.
