Description

Darker can lower your screen brightness to extremely low levels, to help prevent eyestrain during the night. Use the built-in color filter* to adjust the color of your display, perfect for filtering out harsh white backgrounds during the night.

This app is fully functional and does not include advertisements. Additional paid features are unlockable through an In-app purchase.

Xiaomi device / MIUI users need to go to Settings → Installed apps → Darker → Other permissions, and enable "Display pop-up window" for Darker to work correctly.

Paid features include:

» Auto-On & Auto-Off
» Start at boot
» Lower brightness below 20%
» Darken navigation bar
» Custom filter colors
» Root mode
» Customizable notification buttons
• Up to three buttons can be added for quick access.
• Buttons to increase and decrease the brightness (+5%, -5%, +10%, -10%)
• Buttons to set a specific brightness (@0%, @10%, @20%, ... , @90%, @100%)
• Quick toggles (stop, pause, reset, color filter)

Note: When manually installing APK files, Android blocks the "Install" button from being pressed when Darker is running. This is NOT a bug. It's a protective measure to prevent malicious apps from camouflaging the install button. Pausing Darker will solve this.

*The color filter is similar to how the desktop version of f.lux works. Selecting a redder color will reduce more bluelight emitted from the display.

Tasker Support
Darker has Tasker support, use these intents to send commands to Darker:

darker.STOP
darker.PAUSE
darker.INCREASE_5
darker.INCREASE_10
darker.DECREASE_5
darker.DECREASE_10
darker.SET_10
darker.SET_20
darker.SET_30
darker.SET_40
darker.SET_50
darker.SET_60
darker.SET_70
darker.SET_80
darker.SET_90
darker.SET_100
darker.TOGGLE_COLOR
darker.ENABLE_COLOR
darker.DISABLE_COLOR

Add the above intents to Tasker by going to Action Category→System→Send Intent→Action, leave the other fields default, and note that the intents are case sensitive.

These two intents below need an additional parameter in the "Extra" field

darker.SETCOLOR "Extra" field: COLOR:1~16 (Colors are numbered left to right, top to bottom)
darker.COLORSTRENGTH "Extra" field: STRENGTH:1~10

The intent below needs the "Target" field set to "Service"

darker.START

FlickStart Support
Darker can work in conjunction with FlickStart, an app which can send commands to Darker by using the sensors on your phone or Android Wear device.

The command set for Darker is available for download on the FlickStart website. Simply download the command set and import it into FlickStart.

It's the best night light app I could find. Very easy to use and doesn't require you to pay for the main features! The app is also nice and small! Great for night

Worked for what I needed it for but it does not actually lower the brightness. It just puts a transparent black overlay (a filter) over the whole screen which is misleading. Full Review

Since Oreo update, the navigation bar and soft keys are not dimmed, despite using settings specifically targeted at this, which in turn is causing serious eye strain at night when trying to use this app's function. Full Review

I found this app's quick settings tile for nougat! I previously used tasker to make a quick settings tile for darker, but now I don't need it anymore. Awesome app just got even more awesome!! Full Review

Works well on Nexus 5x and Android 8.1. Only major issue is that is not Open Source, so we don't know if it is doing something nefarious. Full Review

I use this app since 3 years. It is the most friendly screen filter i have ever used. I love this app. But unfortunately the secure app installation option has been removed. That option was used when installing an app from memory card or somewhere else other than playstore. You should add 2 things: 1. Thie secure app button which automatically pause "Darker" when installing an app. 2. An on-screen button that can be used everywhere so that we could get rid of pulling down status bar each time. This button should be like one tap button. Full Review

Auto-pause has been useless for the past several weeks. Even when set to zero lux in a bright environment, Darker can't decide what it should be doing and goes bright-dim-bright-dim-bright-dim while I'm trying to read. Auto-pause is why I paid for Darker, and if you can't make it work, I'll look elsewhere. I have a feeling it has to do with fact that, since Nougat, there are still bright elements on the screen and the screen is now generating its own light. Full Review

This lightweight app is fantastic for use during night time where the minimum brightness is still too high for comfortable levels. 20% is often all you'll need but color fidelity gets lost around this area. The only downside is that screenshots taken when the app is in effect will have a dark overlay based on your darkness settings, in which case you'll have to temporarily pause the app. Full Review

Hopeful I am hoping this app will work on my new phone. Was using ScreenFilter but it doesn't work. Your app gives me a blue light filter and has a nice pause feature right in the notification screen. I will up the stars to five if I find no problems after some time. Full Review

As you can see from my initial review below I like the app. There is one issue. On Android 8.0 the navigation bar is not affected by the filter. Everything gets darker except it. I hope it can be fixed soon. Great app, the best filter I have ever used. And everything is intuitive and easy to use/set up. I use it on all devices I have. Full Review

Simple yet fantastic! Love this app and regret not searching for it earlier. I wear glasses and of course it's difficult to wear them to bed where I often reply to emails and what not, I get headaches without them in the dark and from having a bright white screen. My low brightness is so standard but this app is perfect for all that and I love that I can slowly reduce the brightness as my eyes adjust not to mention the fact this app takes up such little space! Probably the only app that I've ever give 5 stars or a novel review Full Review

Great app, love the support to dim navbar! Now the only problem that remains - some apps (for example Facebook comments) somehow "bug" this app and brighten the screen. When you restart the offending app everything seems to get back to normal. Full Review
