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

Exactly what I needed. There are only two improvements I could suggest. A more attractive UI (not that it really matters) would be nice. It would also be really helpful if swiping away the notification disabled the filter.

Such a life saver My poor eyes no longer have to endure my phone screen at night! Only thing is sometimes it seems the filter switches of for half a second for some reason. It doesn't bother me though. It still goes back to it's darkness right away.
