    Lets say I want to watch a movie in the dark... It has a light sensor to light up when it's dark but when I'm watching a movie, I don't want to see them lighting up.... How do I disable that?

    In case you want press one key how can you find the right key in the dark?

    up to now I didnt found how to disable the sensor. I think current status is reasonable,anyway.

    The same sensor is responsible for automatic brightness, and turning your phones screen off when placing the phone to your ear (and in turn, turning back on when you take the phone away from your ear) Disabling the sensor would be foolish.

    Soft Key buttons back light disable option

    Tested on ZTE Warp and works for me

    Enjoy watching movies in darkness, hope it helps :D

    **Update** 12/18
    After using this for a while i noticed when trying to install any app from somewhere other than than the marketplace, the actual install button for a new downloaded app had the possibility to not respond to touch, although the cancel button would work fine. Just a little warning if anyone happens to wonder why they cant install any apps when this screen filter is turned on. Problem is solved after turning it off.

    Been there and done that, I had hoped someone would have found another solution to this app as it seems to have quite a few issues on my phone, Although it does work and perty well i might add it needs some work still. Any other suggestions out there would be awsome.
