New build coming right up!

I hate the way sensors work on Android, it's completely backwards.

Same here..
Bought your app ages ago and am linked to your dropbox.
Have a hox as well...

Is the new beta on yr dropbox?
Cheers...


Edit

Never mind.. Found it on dropbox..

Haha, so does hox have a slow sensor? (read changelog... )

Yes it is. Going to upload it to the market now anyway, but only because I'm ultra busy and can't keep up with complaining HTC users.

Thumbs up
I don't know what exactly you have done to improve the situation, but:

It works! Hurray!


I will report back if I encounter any issues, but so far it's working great and I'm looking forward to enjoying the Lux AB greatness...

I just purchased this app after using the free version for a few weeks, I think mainly because of the developer support that I have seen. I haven't figured the best settings to use yet. I'm using this on a GS3 and was wondering if anyone can recommend or share the settings they have been using.

In my experience 0.6x was giving me a better user experience than 0.7x, so I rolled back. The new settings such as in call brightness is coolvbut maybe made optional. I usually ser my screen to -17% and increase only at a lux of 500, so the first time seeing my screen went up to 80% scared me lol.

(I m using sg3 too. 0.7x behaved quite strangely so I rolled back.)

Thanks for the great apps! Minimum battery consumption and very practical!

Problem is, I set the poll-rate to something relatively slow to save power, but this means that if the HOX changes light value between each poll, the onChange listener never triggers. It's completely stupid, and a core issue with how sensors work on Android.

This is truly a fantastic app that does its job exceptionally well. Reading on my phone or tablet at night used to be terrible because I could not get the screen dark enough to be comfortable. This is so much better. It was really easy to learn as well. Brilliant idea to let users pick what they want the brightness to be, link it to the sensor reading, and then make a decision for values that haven't been explicitly set. Great concept, great execution and developer support, I absolutely love it. Very utilitarian app that should be a part of android.

Sub Zero Issue
I linked a value so that anytime Lux reads 0 lx it sets to -40%. The problem is that about 90% of the apps on the phone then open up completely black. If the value is anything above sub-zero all programs work fine. I also noticed that the sub-zero issue only occurs when in portrait mode and if I flip the phone to landscape it goes away. I'm running a Rooted Stock Galaxy S3 on Verizon w/ Stock Launcher and the newest paid version of Lux on the market any idea what could be causing this?
