Default [Android] Total Screen Control (updated on 12 April)

I would like to take the opportunity given by XDA forum and share with you my application, named "Total Screen Control".
I would be more than happy if I will receive through this thread opinions, features requests, bug fixes requests, new ideas, anything that could improve the application.
Thanks !

Total Screen Control

Total Screen Control is an application for setting the Brightness Level, Screen Filter, ScreenOn Lock and Rotation Lock preferences individually for any application installed on your phone.
Allows you to apply a filter that dims the brightness below minimum value so your eyes don't hurt during night viewing. Very useful in low light conditions especially on AMOLED screens where even the lowest brightness value is still bright. Also can save a lot of battery combined with ScreenOn Lock based on phone orientation!

More features:
- Screen Filter/Privacy with schedule and brightness slider for fine control !
- Dynamic Screen Filter based on phone's light sensor! Forget about classic auto-brightness, switch to Dynamic Screen Filter!
- Screen Filter Bar for easy and cool control of Filter dim
- ScreenOn Lock based on phone orientation! Keeps the screen on as long as you use your phone! SAVE BATTERY also!
- ScreenOn Lock, Brightness level and Rotation Lock individually for any app
- Option to disable softkey backlight (not working on all phones)
- Tasker/Locale plugins !
- Notification icon on Status bar with all needed information
- Up to 5 configurable Screen Filter Presets
- 3 Widgets for easy access
- Configurable preferences, alerts
- Start at boot

Does your eyes hurt you when reading or playing before bedtime ? Enable the Screen Filter
Tired to get the screen off while reading your eBook, browsing on Web or playing? Setup the ScreenOn Lock
Want to set the brightness or rotation individually? Configure them with Total Screen Control
For all these this application is for you!

Ok I have got an equal result like you. 82% usage for the last 1h 20 min....Gonna keep it for a while on my device and watch its usage with the monitoring function of the app "SystemPanel".
