Screen brightness is a big deal, especially outdoor.

I mean, ask Apple why the screen in the iPhone5 goes so bright.

In the end, I'd just about personal preference. If your screen can be brighter then why not?

Caution: can be really hard to see if you do that. I know, I've spent 10 min in a dark closet trying to open the app again after accidentally backing out of the app with the screen all the way down... pm me if you can't find it and I'll get you a copy.
i use this app and its the best ive tried. ScreenFilter doesnt dim the nav bar. ScreenDim does it perfectly.

but yeah.. im gonna use this MOD for those sunny days. Thanks OP

Thanks for the app.

So, if I force-stop "A Brighter Note" should it get slightly dimmer? And when I click the "A Brighter Note" app, I should see it get brighter?
I'm not noticing any difference. Running Whomp 2.7.1
