nice app. i love it and use it on all my macs.


This program does not dim your LCD backlight. It just overlays black. It's like putting a piece of black construction paper in front of a flashlight, instead of dimming the flashlight.

What is needed is finer control over the backlight.

I cant stand the brightness of my iMac G5's displays at night but luckily I found this nifty little app that lets me quickly and easily adjust the brightness of my display and dim it to a comfortable level.
