Screen Filter

Screen Filter


Applies a shade that acts as a dimmer to ensure your eyes don't hurt. Far more powerful than Android's built-in brightness setting. Great for low-light gaming, web browsing, and eBook reading. It even saves battery life for AMOLED displays!

More features:
- Widgets: Easy access to preset brightness levels.
- Tasker/Locale Plug-in! Set brightness based on time/place/etc. To disable, configure for 100% brightness.
- Brightness slider uses logarithmic scale for fine-grained control.
- Drag the app icon to your desktop to use for toggling on/off.
- Prompts to confirm very low brightness settings.
- Option to disable soft-key backlight (does not work on all phones).

NOTE:
*** If you accidentally make your screen go BLACK ***
1. Pull your battery or (Nexus7) hold power button for 10 seconds
2. Uninstall the app to reset your bad brightness setting
3. Reinstall the app and use it normally again

10/2/2013. Been using this on my previous androids and now on huawei 8815. Allows you to adjust brightness on your display.Simple. Just works :)

A++. Essential. Turns the screen brightness even lower than low AND gets rid off backlit buttons. Good for reading in the dark.

so simple, so awesome. just turns down the screen to a predetermined percentage. only wish it didn't require a persistent notification.

Absolute MUST-HAVE voor mensen die in het donker hun telefoon gebruiken. Laat je de helderheid verder terugschroeven dan standaard brightness- instellingen.

Does exactly what it says. Only wish for an option to hide the permanent status bar item it places in notification Pulldown.

Color Sorry to give you one star, just to notify you. I need some color adjustments as it takes down the color while overlapping a black tint and everything turns down black and white. Need some color.

It's just what I was looking for! I wanted to reduce my battery use but my phone can't go as low as I wanted it to. I would say that you need to make it work on the bar at the bottom of my phone, it's still bright. I use the LG-G2
