Contrast was not the issue for me. The brightness of the screen, even with the slider all the way to the left was leaving me snowblind when I attemted to read at night.

you the man, pruss. You're app was the first I used some of the play credit on. worked fine out of the gate, but really liked getting an update a couple days later that allowed the smaller interface and eliminated the flash when the dimmer kicked in.

Highly recommend this app for anyone with an N7 who likes to read with the Kindle (or other stores' that don't let you fine tune the font color) app in bed.

@soondai, if you find the volume is too low on your N7, pruss has another app that increases volume beautifully. It's called Speaker Boost.

I tried the "root" version of Screen Dim on my N7, but it does not dim the screen any more than the minimum setting in the standard settings. I would like it to get dimmer than that.

If it matters to Screen Dim, I upgraded to the latest firmware before rooting, and I flashed ClockWorkMod to it so I can recover without a tethered boot.

P.S. Speaker Boost works great on my N7. I also found that holding it so that my hand LOOSELY COVERS the speaker grill on the back guides sound around the palm of my hand toward the front, making it sound much louder. This is easy when watching videos in landscape mode. I use that hold AND a 60% boost with Speaker Boost.

I have Screen Dim set at 8-255 for night one. It sure seems dimmer to me .

The non-root version lets you adjust contrast once the backlight dimming gives out. You can either have two sliders, one for backlight and one for contrast, or a single combined slider that lowers contrast once you run out of backlight (at around 20/255).

You might try putting a heavy book under, with some spacers, to get a better sound reflector, maybe.

pruss-

for announcing that ScreenDim Full is free for the moment at Amazon!

I just installed it on my Fire HD 6, and have a question: Can your app dim the screen beyond the tablet's default minimum brightness?

Edit: To answer my own question after playing with the app, yes!
