A pretty powerfully adjustable auto-brightness app for your android device.

Deployments from android 2.1 up.
Any feedback highly appreciated.

Beta testers (via Play Store beta program):
First you need to become member of Google Group here. Please apply for membership and wait a bit for me to approve you (might be a while if I'm asleep though ).
Then, please visit this URL and apply for beta testing.

The app features a developer settings dialog which can be reached by long-pressing proximity reading on main screen.

Google play link for download. (and description)

Thank you all for your help. VAB wouldn't be what it is without you!

For those that can't download from Google Play and think their phone will work anyway, the .apk is attached below. Note however, that even though some phones have the light sensor it is not implemented in a standard way and will not be recognized by the app. Because of this, the app has no means to operate on such phones.

Looks very interesting and flexible, I was looking for for an alternative to the standard auto brightness feature.
Just installed it and will give it a spin. I will report back when I have some hands on experience.

Also very interested to see what the effect will be on battery life.

EDIT: First impression is great, the light level adapts very fast to changing conditions, and very easy to customise.
This looks like a great app.

@velis74,

WOW!

I'm very, very impressed. Never had so precise auto brightness behavior.

on my Galaxy S (1) GT i9000; CM10 jellybean (HellyBean 27092012)


Thank you for that GREAT tool.

regards

Not working on Xperia S, can't read the brightness of the environment, also it says there's no light sensor in the device

Testing on an HTC Rezound, so far so good, detects light sensor and proximity just fine.

I'll let you know if I find any problems.

Thanks for the app!

If i read tech specs correctly, xperia s doesn't have a brightness sensor. Considering other specs of this phone, i find this odd. However, the program will detect a brightness sensor if there is one implemented...
