    I'm finding my screen is too bright for me to read with in bed at night, even when set to the dimmest setting and with the background black and the text brown. I had this same issue with my old Palm Tungsten E2, but there was a program that allowed the screen to be adjusted to even lower than the manufacturer's level. Is there a similar app for Android? (Actually, I find my screen too bright at the best of times, too.)

    Thanks.

    I use Aldiko ebook reader and it allows you to adjust the screen brightness by sliding your finger up or down on the left side of the screen. Can't hurt to try it.

    That's the app I was using. It was still too bright. But I'm finding my screen may be too bright for me in general. I'd like something that can take the whole brightness down, regardless of the app I'm using.

    Gotcha, I'm not sure of anything that would work. Sorry. Maybe try asking over in the root section for your phone. There's gotta be some way to do it.

    I'm also experiencing this problem. Hoping there's a solution somewhere.

    Maybe one of those 'privacy' screen protectors (read:tinted) may help? Or something like that?

    Extended controls lets you recreate the standard 'control' bar and add customized brightness, up to 8 steps.

    The first step is about only 2%, that stills good for reading at indoors. For outdoors, at least 50% is recommended.

    Can you explain how to set that up exactly? I didn't know you could use it to make it less bright than the lowest setting on the stock brightness slider.
