Brightness Widget - Backlight!

Available in :
Backlight! is a free brightness app/widget for Android that changes your devices’ screen backlight with a single click.  It also allows complete custom brightness levels.  You can even assign it to a gesture or a main dock for easier access.

1. Any extra permissions like read phone state are due to admob ads identifying unique installations.  I'm looking into a way to make this not required.
2. Doesnt work on Sense UI devices (i.e. Hero).
3. Potential conflict with Juice Defender.  JD seems to negate any requests of this app to change brightness.

Android recognizes values from 1-255 with 1 being darkest and 255 being brightest.  It also has support for automatic brightness.  Default levels are 1, 50, 150, and 255 respectively.  To enable Auto Brightness you can use the letter 'a'.

Backlight! controls the screen brightness level only.  It does not adjust keyboard brightness or other light features of the phone.

Don’t forget to add/re-add the widgets to the home screen!

Terrible Its a worthless app.Screwed backlight of my phone, now there is a green blot on my xperia s screen since I used it

by A Google User the 8/11/2013

Exactly what I need A widget that is capable of switching the brightness between auto and full. My only disappointment is the design of the widget itself, as it could be much nicer looking. It's too big compared to other icons and widgets and looks kind of ugly.

by A Google User the 8/6/2013

Perfect Exactly what I was looking for; 100% brightness to auto in one touch!

Version 1.4.12 still requires unjustified memory A very simple app shouldn't require so much space on phone memory. I had to downgrade it to version 1.4.5.

Love it Saves my battery and my eyes.

by A Google User the 7/24/2013

Great appear Great app, just what I need. Thanks

by A Google User the 7/23/2013

Just what I need. I like my apps tip just perform the basic functions they were intended to do and nothing else. This is perfect. I wanted a widget I could click to switch to several brightness values, and that's what I got :-)

by A Google User the 6/20/2013

Good application. Does its job.

by A Google User the 6/14/2013

Sweet. Great app on my Razr HD. Very configurable. Nice looking widget. Separate widget for setup.

by A Google User the 6/6/2013

Extremely handy Had a need and solved it. Easy as that!
