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.

Amazing You will not find another app that will do the job better. Minimal space and battery usage. If you set the brightness lower than 15%, it will ask you to confirm that you want it that low. After 10 seconds if theres no response, the app will reset back to the previous brightness percentage. I love that.

1 OF MY TOP APP PICKS. BUT PLZ READ MY FEEDBACK This app rocks my world: as a brain surgery survivor, I struggle w/bright light. Feedbck: plz offer "favorites" buttons for preset percentages. Change the sample text block to a sample generic PHOTO to better represent settings: photo w/color, patterns, icons, faces, text, etc. And more precise dimmer control within the 50% go effective area is needed, the miniscule length is limiting. Remove useless left half "50%-99%" bc everything there is a blackhole anyway.
