No, there was an early version which uses the stock android brightness slider, but dims the screen with an overlay. It was a root only version. The latest version adds a separate slider in the notification bar. If you have that apk version please share with us
With this app I can't swipe up/down to change brightness inside Mx Player or Youtube. Is there a fix for that?
 
Version 1.3:
  • added proper notification layout for portrait and landscape mode.
  • adjusted brightness steps.
  • small bugfixes.
Version 1.2:
  • added shortcut to accessibility settings on first start.
  • fixed an issue with the rotation listener.
Version 1.1:
  • added simple interface with brightness slider and function toggle.
Version 1.0:
  • initial release.

It seems that PWM Free is no longer updated, given the silence of its developer. Instead, use OLED Saver. As for the color problem on a screenshot, it is indeed "normal", but I don't know a solution.

    Small update, brightness can now be controlled from the notification bar:

    The overlay is managed by SurfaceFlinger and shouldn't cause any impact. The amoled panel seems to work identical with the contrast dimming and i would guess the battery usage is similar, but i can't tell for sure yet.

    As for the brightness slider, i think this can be placed on the notification bar instead, which should increase the usability.

    Found the causing issue with the help of the android emulator.
    I updated the download link on the original post, please try if it's working correctly now.
