Description:

It improves brightness control more than Apple's way. 
Traditionally, the iMac product line have a dark gamma value less than windows or TV. This application can adjust brightness easily dim or bright.


**** I recommend you Brighter-Screen Lite if you don't have a big-screen mac and don't use mac for watching movie often.



1. Maximum brightness 105%

2. Minimum brightness 10%

3. Movie mode
∙ it is same as photoshop shadow effect and useful when you watching high quality movie on fullscreen.




Tip 1. Default short keys

∙ More F2 (or Fn + F2)
∙ Less F1 (or Fn + F1)
(These are 2 times faster than apple's buttons.)

Tip 2. Sleep Display

∙ Display sleeps below 10% brightness level to save energy automatically.

The difference IS VERY noticeable. Thanks Brighter Screen! - This is a great app and I couldn’t live without it. It makes movies better to watch on my 1080 screen and it lets me dim it enough to watch movies at night in bed. Thanks again!

Can’t tell any difference - What a waste of my $5. I can see NO difference in brightness. Movie mode changes appearance but does not help. Brightness slider is maximized by defaul and turning the app off and on make ZERO difference in the brightness of my display. Save your money.

Review by Thomas Williams

Good app, except that flux overrides it - This app does exactly what it says it does. Movie mode is great. The 5% increase in brightness isn’t much, but it’s something. The ability to go even darker than normal is also nice when working late at night. However, if you are using flux, this app will not work correctly. Flux will override the brightness changes and movie mode, so you can’t use the two together. The app would be 5 stars if it worked alongside flux.

Excellent - On MacBookPro mid-2014 running on MacOS Sierra this extension in Movie mode makes all the difference between just okay and really terrific. Great App, thanks.

Review by Destroyer of Popups

Works great on my 17” Macbook Pro 3,1 - I have an older Macbook Pro with a matte screen (wish you could still get one) but the screen has grown pretty dim. This gives a nice little boost and extends the usable life of my antique Macbook.
