[APP/TOOL][ICS+] Brightness Slider Control in notification panel - No root needed!

THIS IS THE GAME CHANGER!


This app is made for the devices which do not have the brightness adjustment slider in the notification panel. This app brings a similar slider to the notification panel in the form of a notification. Brightness Slider Control aims to mimic the functionality of those sliders/controllers found in Samsung, Motorola, Nexus and other devices and delivers it to those devices which do not have this functionality e.g HTC phones.

But due to some technical limitations imposed by Android OS, it is not possible to mimic the exact behavior of sliding. So in this app we can "touch" the slider panel to change brightness but we cannot "slide" it. The default behavior of every ordinary notification is that the user dismisses it by sliding to right or left. We cannot replace this functionality with our own. So unless Android allows it, we can only use the "touch" gesture.

You are strongly encouraged to report any issue and submit your precious suggestions on this thread.

On the HTC M9 the app asks for you to give it permission to change settings. I don't know how to do that as my phone is stock and not rooted

Are you on Marshmallow? I will try to upload another version which might solve the problem. I don't own a marshmallow device so I will have to download an emulator for this purpose.

I'll hopefully upload an update tomorrow which should fix this problem by asking permission before installation like on pre marshmallow devices. And maybe I'll also manage to give option to hide notification icon.

I request someone with a Marshmallow device to see if the app asks for permission. I do not own a Marshmallow device yet.

I have uploaded the update. It will reach you in some hours.
This time it should properly ask your permission to change settings in Marshmallow devices. Please tell me if it works.

Loving the app. Would it be possible to add an option to only show the notification on the lockscreen? Would be handy for outdoor use even if we don't always need an ongoing notification.

I think it's possible, but it'll require a lot of coding. It is a good idea.
Maybe i'll add this option in the future, but I can't promise.

Definitely. I could have updated it by now but I fell ill and I couldn't use the laptop. I'll try to update it maybe by Sunday.
