Hi All,

I find Apple's automatic brightness to be lacking, and I'd like to find some way to manually set brightness options by time of day, and/or by application in use. For example, minimum brightness from 9pm - 6am, but 75% from 6am - 9pm, and 100% while playing Fruit Ninja...

Is there any way to do this? By hook or crook?

Thanks!

Ive been using Flux quiet a while, it wont change the brightness but it'll change the colour of the monitor, to prevent any damage to your eye's retina.

Thanks for the tip. That might be useful on my Mac, but I was actually looking for an iOS app for my iPhone (which, although I didn't specify, was implied by my posting in the iOS and Apps forum).

Unfortunately, there is no such app (i guess), just because the option is there in: Settings>Brightness>Auto-Brightness.
If u cant find it, just update the software till u find it
Still, i dont use this option because it seems to drain the battery quickly.
BTW! Thanks for welcoming me.
Cheers.
