Or is it learning by doing?

Disregard my last comment. The built in guide and settings wizard are great!

Annnnd... I'm back. A couple questions, please.

1) Does Lux function by actually dimming the LED backlight, or does it simply shutter the pixels to limit the transmission of light?

2) Is there an easier way to toggle overly on/off when there's a conflict where Lux interferes with an app? I'm asking because the 'overlay' permission is becoming quite the hassle. For example, I fired up Endomondo for the first time on my HTC 10 and needed to grand permission for location, but had to amp up the brightness on the screen to see it in full daylight - so I had to get back into the car to be able to see the screen. Is this a case where once we disallow the overly, change permissions for any given app and then re-enable the overly the settings will persist?

Is there a workaround that will make this less painless?

Hi Vito,

I wanted to let you know that Lux crashes and stops immediately upon launch with Android O beta 3 released 2 days ago. It worked fine with the previous 2 betas of Android O.

This is with my Nexus 6P.

I've used the app for a long time on s4 and then p9lite, but since the upgrade to emui 5.0 and android 7.0 lux keeps turning itself off and on, is there any solution for that?

I know I can add apps to the Sleep List to prevent the overlay warning and put Lux temporarily to sleep. This works well except for that I do not know which app to add for the permission pop-ups that also triggers the overlay warning. Anyone know?
