    i i love auto brightness...but is there an app that will only allow the auto bright to go up to max 50%?

    I don't think there's a way to 'recalibrate' your brightness to max out at 50%, but you can use apps such as "Toggle Settings" or "Locale" to programmatically set a certain brightness. Would that do?

    The thread title is quite misleading & made it sound like you had found one. That's why I clicked because I'm looking for a similar solution although I think a better idea would be a baseline adjust rather than an overall max cap. So one could adjust based on a single number. Say for instance a setting of 80 would throttle the lighting back 80% across the entire range of auto adjust brightness for a power savings of 20% on the display across the board no matter the auto adjust. It seems to me this would be the easiest way to create an app as well.

    Definitely a misleading thread title. I would like something like this. The closest thing I have right now is Locale. I have the brightness set for different levels for different places/times, but that doesn't help with the auto-adjust brightness, and I don't ever want it at 100%.

    regardless of a misleading title... he brings up a great feature request.... i'd add to also be able to set a minimum, like say 10%, instead of all the way to zero...

    and perhaps be able to add an overall baseline value.... often times, I find auto brightness dimming things too much...
  6. i use power manager to set a charging profile with brightness all the way up and a battery powered one to keep it down real low at like 20%...

    An app that did this would be awesome. I feel like those options should've been in there to begin with.

    So i was about to start a thread for a request for one of theses apps but i found this thread! I hope someone can make an app like this! i really need this for the summer... the sun kicks the crap out of my droid's screen when it's really low down! Can't see anything! :mad: Anyone know a developer?!?! ;)

    check out the app "display control". it will let you set your own brightness levels for auto brightness. "dimmer lite" is a free app that will also let you set your own brightness levels to toggle between.

    Brighteriffic does this with one touch. It's been on the Market for awhile.
