Product Features

  • Dim your screen beyond device's normal settings
  • Create 5 presets
  • Adjust both backlight brightness and contrast

Product Description

Is your minimum screen brightness still too bright? Dim your screen below what your device normally permits for comfortable use in darker environments, reading in bed, amateur astronomy, etc. Save battery life. No root required.

Save your five favorite brightness and contrast settings as a preset, and get it back by touching a single button or by a Launcher shortcut. ScreenDim also creates a notification item in your status bar so you can easily go back to it to adjust settings.

ScreenDim is the first dimmer that can both adjust backlight brightness below what the system normally permits on many LCD devices and dim the contrast. Some dimmers only lower the contrast, which keeps the black areas unchanged and glowing gray on LCD devices when in the dark, or only change the backlight within the range normally allowed by the OS.

ScreenDim was written and tested especially with the Kindle Fire in mind.

This is the full, paid version of this app. A trial version is also available for testing on your device.

To activate ScreenDim, just tap on the "Active" checkbox and adjust the sliders.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just dimming the light 'more' makes all the difference! January 11, 2012
By Judith
Verified Purchase
Moving from the Kindle2 to the Kindle Fire has been so much fun. It's my first "Touch" device. What hasn't been fun is still using my Mighty Bright to create backlighting for night reading because the dimmest light-setting on the Fire is still too bright for me. It's been almost two months now that I've been night-reading like this, so today I began searching for ways Kindle Fire users, with eye-sensitivity, are solving this issue.

While searching the web I came across a forum discussing a beta version of an app called ScreenDim. It was so interesting to read the conversation between the designer and the testers with the end result being the app became available for Kindle Fire in January 2012.

So I found it in the Amazon App Store and bought and downloaded my first app. I couldn't wait until tonight to see how it works so I stepped into my darkest closet, was able to reduce the brightness setting below Kindle Fire's lowest, and read comfortably without backlighting.

Thank you to the ScreenDim creator. And thank you to Amazon for recognizing a need for the app and making it available to me. I know a lot of work goes into these technologies, even something so simple as dimming a light, and I really appreciate your efforts on my behalf.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my "most useful" apps! January 11, 2012
Verified Purchase
ScreenDim allows you to have three nighttime presets and two daytime presets, so you can set the Fire's brightness to whatever you prefer. A great app for those who find the Fire's brightness too bright in a dark room. I literally use this app every single day, and love it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Works but could be so much better January 9, 2014
Verified Purchase
I use this to allow me to dim my screen far more than android usually allows so I can use my tablet as an alarm clock. The user interface to configure this app is not very user friendly, but it does work. I did learn that there is an area on the bottom end of the brightness spectrum where sometime the backlight would be on and sometimes not. You need to be sure your setting is just above that area or you may be stuck with a black screen until rebooting.

It would be really cool if you could use this to set the brightness of the screen based on the the light sensor instead of just a fixed brightness. Alternatively, would be cool to allow the settings to be automatically adjusted based on time. Dark at night, bright in the day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely a must have for night reading January 4, 2012
Verified Purchase
This program allows you to set how much brightness comes from your screen, both by using the dimmer and by using what is in essense a neutral density filter. It will go from totally black to 100% brightness. The program also has the ability to set 4 default settings for your favorites. It is always available through the notifications panel.
I can't think how to improve this utility, and keep it running all the time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works Exactly As Described November 25, 2012
Verified Purchase
One of the really nice things about this app is that in addition to the brightness setting it has a contrast setting. Contrast is important as the maximum contrast does not always equal the best viewing experience.

This app works perfectly, is available in the notification bar, and I have no complaints. Recommended.

My favorite app so far (even better than words). I don't have to tilt my kindle fire up to reduce the brightness when reading at night and it's easier for my eyes. A must have!
