This software review will be on this app called screen filter. It is a simple app to lower the brightness of your screen and this provides benefits such as a longer battery life, as well as less strain on your eyes. Its free and can be downloaded from the Android Market.
You can even add a widget to your home screen. Just give it a simple tap and the application will be activated immediately.
And this is what happens just after a tap. The application is initialized and the screen is immediately darkened.
To change some settings, pull down the Android notification bar and tap on the section which is highlighted as shown above.
And here are some of the settings which can be tweaked.
A word of warning though, if you set your brightness too low, your display might be too dark for you to see anything. Luckily, this app has a fail-safe feature. After lowering the brightness, a pop-up message will appear to confirm if you want to save the settings. If you can't see anything, the brightness will auto-revert in 10 seconds. Or, you could also just restart the device and everything will be back to what it once were.
