Lux Is The Best Alternative To F.lux On Android, Adjusts Screen Brightness Based On Time Of Day
Smartphones and tablets are already extremely popular, and with the percentage of people owning one of these devices rising rapidly across the world, it is worth while considering how long we actually spend looking at our phones and tablets on a daily basis. In work places and offices, the use of visual display units generally needs to be monitored so surely users should be able to achieve a certain level of visual comfort when it comes to using mobile devices?
The Lux Auto Brightness app for Android devices is an attempt by Vito Cassissi to transcend the usual poor brightness-based implementations and offers users a premium and intelligent experience. The app intelligently adjusts the device’s screen brightness based on its surroundings, or the lux level of the environment in which the user is in with their phone or tablet. When the device is used in a dimly lit room, the brightness application automatically uses the light sensor to detect the current light level and change the display brightness accordingly, which not only provides visual comfort but also preserves battery power.
When put into periodic mode, the Lux app allows users to automatically adjust the brightness of the display at set time intervals. This is extremely useful for times when you know the display will require more or less brightness, for example in the evening when a little more brightness is needed. Additionally, the application comes with an intelligent dashboard that allows the user to train the app and set new brightness levels for certain lighting conditions. If Lux Auto Brightness dims the screen to low for the user’s liking, simply opening the dashboard and manually adjusting the brightness and then linking that setting for future use will mean that going forward, the app will remember the new levels.
When installed Lux Auto Brightness offers the following powerful features:
Battery saving features, as the app dims the display to suit lighting conditions.
A handy and efficient brightness widget.
Settings for the more technical power-user that includes interpolation, sensor debugging and sample editing.
Backup app settings to the external SD card.
The ability to filter data for devices that have a poor light sensor.
A powerful night mode that allows the color temperature of the display to be changed.
As if the premium features and content of the app wasn’t enough, the developer is also offering a no questions asked, money back guarantee for those users who feel the app doesn’t meet their requirements.
