Hmm, I'm on 1.0.3, transition period is instant. I've rebooted just in case, although I can't imagine that making a difference. Maybe we're talking about different things, though. Night Mode is on, and the color temperature changes as expected if I change the time (although I do still miss the old version of Night Mode, which let me make the screen even more yellow). But I want to be able to set the color temperature to 3400K during the day.

Edit: Never mind, it's changing it now. I guess maybe the reboot did help. Or I was being stupid and not noticing the change before. *shrug* Sorry for the spammy messages! (And for having to wait five minutes before I could edit this.) So instead: thanks for putting this option back in!

Just a quick note - installed the latest and all seems well based on a quick look/see.

I normally did not use the auto mode but left it on to see how it works. I may switch back to to having the app adjust the screen only when turned on.

The only thing I am not crazy about it is adding yet another icon to the task bar (sorry). It is getting crowded up there. I tried turning it off but, of course, the notification pulldown is also removed by that. I will leave it for now but may experiment with turning it off another time.

For now all is well - thanks for your efforts!

[ EDIT ] I switched the notification to the lowest priority which have removed the icon from the status bar - no issues with the app closing thus far.

mxplayer and brightness control
I have included mxplayer in the sleep list so that I could adjust the brightness within the app itself. This has been working fine up to 0.76 but since 1.03, I am no longer able to adjust the brightness in mxplayer. I confirm that the app is still included in the sleep list so I think there must be a bug there somewhere.

Appreciate if you can take a look.

EDIT: I rebooted my phone and it is now working as expected, so no issue there.

I just noticed the CPU issue as well on my Galaxy S3. The poll rate was set to fastest. Was that what it was set to on the old version (before the newest slate of updates? If I have it on fast or even medium, it still keeps my CPU over 50%.

Seems like you shouldn't even have an option that would allow someone to set this to take up 50% of the CPU constantly. If I set it to slow, my CPU drops way down to about where it should be while idle.

Poll rate defines how fast the light sensor is polled for changes. Even the slowest settings is quite fast. The only reason I have it there as an option is because devices with dodgy sensors don't work well with slower poll rates. On the other hand, good devices use too much CPU with faster poll rates. 'Slow' and 'slowest' are perfectly fine for quick updates - perhaps I should have named them something less negative sounding.

Basically, don't make it faster unless you get wacky sensor readings (usually a HTC issue).

I'll consider this for a future update.

What are you doing when that occurs?

Yeah I agree, I shouldn't have given people that much control. It was put there for people with bad light sensors to try a higher poll rate, but now it's backfired because people like to touch settings they don't really understand.

Did the latest update fix this for you?

It's working on my end. I'll see if I can try it on an S3.

Indeed, I'll do it tomorrow when things settle down and I get time to update everything.

Re: [APP][Official][2.1+] Lux Auto Brightness 0.76
Hello,
I have troubles with setting the application on low lighting levels. It just jumps from one level to another and back over and over again, no smooth changes like when I was using stock autobrightness or enhanced brightness in Jellytime ROM.
I suppose it just sets it like:
sensor - level
10 - 20
160 - 40
280 - 60
and it cannot approximate values over certain period?

This permanent flickering is very annoying.
