    Backlight! is a free brightness app/widget for Android that changes your devices’ screen backlight with a single click. It also allows complete custom brightness levels. You can even assign it to a gesture or a main dock for easier access.

    1. Doesnt work on Sense UI devices (i.e. Hero).
    2. Potential conflict with Juice Defender. JD seems to negate any requests of this app to change brightness.

    Android recognizes values from 1-255 with 1 being darkest and 255 being brightest. It also has support for automatic brightness. Default levels are 1, 50, 150, and 255 respectively. To enable Auto Brightness you can use the letter 'a'.

    Backlight! controls the screen brightness level only. It does not adjust keyboard brightness or other light features of the phone.

    Don’t forget to add/re-add the widgets to the home screen!

    Every time I tap, it changes the brightness, but it also opened the preference everytime, very annoying.

    For what it was worth, it is a great s screen brightness app, with % brightness in the bulb icon. On 6P I no longer have the % number, that is the only reason for 4 Star, plus it is not an option to leave a 4.9 Star.

    Simple, customizable, and not invasive. I wish more apps were this smooth! Thank you!

    you have to add a widget to change settings. I REALLY APPRECIATE the un-limited number of toggles though! Thought I wanted three, ended up with four anyway. Standard brightness "half-moon" icon would be ideal put many options in please; light, dark, primary colors, etc.
