Great app Does what is's suppose to, easy to set up and you can forget about it afterwards, just see the difference in battery life

★★★★★ Chaney Wormington
Best auto brightness Adjusts to individual light sensor ranges automatically, only auto brightness I've found that does this.

★★★★★ Václav Vlček
