Darker can lower your screen brightness to extremely low levels, to help prevent eyestrain during the night. Use the built-in color filter* to adjust the color of your display, perfect for filtering out harsh white backgrounds during the night.

This app is fully functional and does not include advertisements. Additional paid features are unlockable through an In-app purchase.

Xiaomi device / MIUI users need to go to Settings → Installed apps → Darker → Other permissions, and enable "Display pop-up window" for Darker to work correctly.

Paid features include:

» Auto-On & Auto-Off

» Start at boot

» Lower brightness below 20%

» Darken navigation bar

» Custom filter colors

» Root mode

» Customizable notification buttons

       • Up to three buttons can be added for quick access.

       • Buttons to increase and decrease the brightness (+5%, -5%, +10%, -10%)

       • Buttons to set a specific brightness (@0%, @10%, @20%, ... , @90%, @100%)

       • Quick toggles (stop, pause, reset, color filter)

Note: When manually installing APK files, Android blocks the "Install" button from being pressed when Darker is running. This is NOT a bug. It's a protective measure to prevent malicious apps from camouflaging the install button. Pausing Darker will solve this.

*The color filter is similar to how the desktop version of f.lux works. Selecting a redder color will reduce more bluelight emitted from the display.

Tasker Support

Darker has Tasker support, use these intents to send commands to Darker:




















Add the above intents to Tasker by going to Action Category→System→Send Intent→Action, leave the other fields default, and note that the intents are case sensitive.

darker.SETCOLOR     "Extra" field: COLOR:1~16 (Colors are numbered left to right, top to bottom)

darker.COLORSTRENGTH     "Extra" field: STRENGTH:1~10

The intent below needs the "Target" field set to "Service"


FlickStart Support

Darker can work in conjunction with FlickStart, an app which can send commands to Darker by using the sensors on your phone or Android Wear device.

Reviews From google play store

mlhgdeveopment just became my favorite developer in the Play store. Darker asks for two reasonable permissions upfront, unlike other apps that claim to not need any and then bombard you with a dozen requests as soon as they open. The warning regarding volume button recovery and APK installations was great to see. The layout is intuitive and thoughtful. The free version provides plenty of features and is sufficient for many people, while pro unlocks power user functionality. 11/10, well done devs

No longer works the way it used to, I'm using Samsung Galaxy S8+, when you activate it stays on for 2 minutes or less then it deactivates without any notice and the whole screen goes bright, tried it over a span of 20 minutes and for sure it self deactivated more than 12 times!! 😔 Please fix it.

Does exactly what it says, effectively and efficiently. Helps keep my phone darker and prevents migraines in my case. A complete necessity for a migraine sufferer sensitive to light such as myself.

The best screen overlay/darkening app. However it has a bug: If you change the brightness via the custom pro notification buttons, it isn't updated in the main screen.

It does the job, takes mininum space, has no ads and is very convenient to control from notification and status bar toggle.

Dims great, but doesn't have a popup slider for quick changes (it just launches the app, which is annoying).

Smart move. Now my eyes can feel better. But the screen filter have been glitching for over 12 hours now.

Perfect. Just press the icon, screen is dimmed instantly. Press again, its not. Additional config available too. I wish more apps working like that.

I would really enjoy this app if it weren't for the fact that my drop down menu isn't covered. My lock screen also isn't covered and often when I turn on my phone it glitches and puts the screen at full brightness for a second.

It's a very great app. The thing i like about this app is it's very small app and it starts working only with one click literally just one click

it was promising, but my on screen home buttons stayed bright despite selecting to darken them. it was counter intuitive and didnt make much of a difference, since the bottom of my screen was blinding anyways.

Doesn't change brightness of soft keys at bottom. Shows a bright strip there.

It runs perfectly and the features are complete enough for a screen filter app. I recommend this app for low to mid spec devices that runs on limited RAM memory.

In notification bar thr is no option gradual increase/decrease level of filter

Nice app. Works exactly as said by the developers. But the pro version price is too much. Please consider lowering the price.....

Great app for old phones and let's me do cool stuff like color filter and night time mood

Does not support modern systemless root method, Magisk... I paid for pro mostly for thr root mode, but upon trying to enable it, the app says "Your device does not support this feature" without even requesting root privileges. I assume it has not been properly configured for systemless root methods. Magisk is THE de facto most popular root method today. The app needs to be updated to support it!

I love it. My cell phone's darkest setting is usually still to bright for me, but this actually makes it darker! it's really good, you can adjust it, and I like. the only thing to note is that the only thing that this app doesn't make darker is my phone's drop down menu.

Beautiful App. Such a low-space consuming working at this level is very good.

Needed something quick, this required literally no setup. Install it and you'll instantly drop to 50% brightness, click the easily accessed notification to change the amount or turn it off. No ads from what I've seen. I love it!

Love the features, been using it for years. But it doesn't filter over the bottom navigation bar even with experimental mode on. Unfortunately I've moved to another app that does this easily. I'm on android 7.0.

So far it is great and I love it! Both of my tablets' lowest brightness settings, especially the smaller one, are horrible on my eyes when it is morning or if I am in a dark area. This app is perfectly able to dim the screen past the original limit!

Dim capacitive buttons is not working on Android 9. Everything else is perfect.

makes the screen very dull and washed out. dark theme on phone works bettet. look under accessibility or night theme

Works reasonably well. There is one annoying problem - perhaps it's an Android issue, not in the app. When you have Darker on with a color filter, it colors and dims your screenshots.

It was working fine until it stopped working all of the sudden, but there's no way to fix it or send feedback so I'll change my rating when this gets fixed :)

why do the developers of the app need access to my bookmarks? it works well, as described.

It's very simple and easy to use. Good job!

Been using this for years. Finally upgraded to a new phone where blue filter is native, and the dark setting goes dark enough. For anyone using Android 6 or below, this is dream. Just sent it to my wife who is still on Android 6. Thanks, Devs!

navigation bar still bright, no good for eye. sorry only 2 star, bye

I bought the pro version so that I could use the "darken navigation bar" feature. This feature does not work, so it was a waste of money. I would appreciate a refund due to the absence of this promised feature.

I use to love this app and used it everynight but now it shuts off randomly and I'm hit with a bright screen in the middle of the night. Going to need to find another one.

I am one of the people who paid for the pro version of the app for the dim navigation feature but it does not work so I'll uninstall the app and hope for a refund because it feels like a scam £2 for 1 would be useful feature that doesn't work

Used this for years. However, on my new Moto X4 Android (8.1), the phones quick menu and various notifications/drop downs within apps negate Darker's settings while they are active. Otherwise, I love this app

great app actually and no im not a bot.i love the fact that it just instantly makes your screen darker.Even if your brightness is lowed down to the minimum it darkens it even more so great app but one thang i hate is that your buttun at the bottom of your screen and when you pull down to see notifications are still bright please fix

Love this App... using from 3 years without any problem.

You need to get this for when you use your phone at late hours. It is easy to use and you get a nice suprise from the developers if you use it for long enough

Definitely useful. But I paid for pro features, and auto on and off don't work. 5 stars for the app had I been using the free features only tho.

Just awesome. One of very few apps that does the job without annoying at all. Ad free!

Really helpful for me, since my phones lowest brightness is too bright and hurts my eyes

This app used to work great, but now it turns off every few seconds! Is there a way to fix it??

it works perfectly but but in the navigation bar the brightness still the same.

good overall. EXCEPT that my phone becomes sluggish whenever the filter is on

After purchasing pro version notification bar and pull down menu aren't dimmed on my Moto G6.

Great. And simple. No problems...yet. Cheers.

nice app it really cools down eyes , doesn't let any strain on eyes.

some times its stops and i have to got to the app and on it once more it happens every 10min

Does not even darken notification area and button area, still very bright, yet wanting to sell me a Pro version.

Perfect, this app it too good to be true, please dont make this pay to own devs

Why it's automatically stops after few minutes!!!

Doesn't have option to invert colors. What a pity.

Awesome app for Night Brightness in low to very easy and helpfully applicaton please download it.

good app,but would be great if there was some sort of widget.

it's an excellent invention. This is the app I've been looking for. I recommend to use this BEAST
