    Hello!

    I got my first smartphone (it is also my first smart/touch-anything) a few days ago. It's a Motorola Electrify M, and I'm liking it. Right now I am in need of some experienced app users to help me figure out which ones I am looking for. I'm so glad there's a forum for that!

    Hi, Mike! Nice to meet you. My big question right now is is there an app that will dim the screen so it stays visible, yet the phone be locked?

    Locked, as in, have a lockscreen pattern unlock but have the screen dimmed?
    Not exactly sure what you mean by locked phone with a dimmer screen.
    You can dim the screen brightness within the screen/display settings, and set a screen lock.
    Did I understand correctly?

    Hmm...I hope this helps clarify:

    Right now, I wish the phone could be locked (meaning I would have to swipe a lockscreen pattern to access anything), dimmed, but never go to sleep; never turn black. Unless I specifically force it to go black if I want to.

    I would like a dimmed version of the live screen to remain visible underneath the lockpattern dots for as long as I want.

    I have found a lot of apps that allow the screen to stay awake and dimmed, but not locked. If I only knew what term(s) to search for in the apps area, then I'm sure I could find what I am looking for.

    Or maybe someone just knows? Whaddya think?

    I follow you now.....you want the dimmed lockscreen to stay on until you turn it off yes?
