Google Play Reviews

  1. Anderwriter-avatar

    I posted an unfavorable review when, after upgrading to Android 10, I found Dimly no longer worked on the lock screen, or in the notification area or Quick Panel. But it turns out these are new restrictions imposed by Google, for "security" purposes. So apparently, if we need to use our devices during the night, or in other low-light conditions, we have no way of lowering the brightness of these areas. On our own devices. That we own. Anyway, it's not this developer's fault.

  2. Francisco PH-avatar

    Nice app. I would give it 5 stars but it has a little something I dont like and i do not know if it is a bug. The app does what it says. It turns your screen darker so when you use your phone at night you dont damage your eyes, which is cool, the problem i have in my huawei 20 lite is that, whenever a notification pops up, or when i change the volume, or when i check the upper sliding window, the brightness returns to all its shiny glory for some seconds, and that really hurts my eyes at night.

  3. Lin Hauschild-avatar

    I have been using this exceptional app. for years and highly recommend it. My eyes are extremely sensitive and the shake option for outside, ( when you forget to up your brightness ) is a godsend . I understand the $1.99 to get rid of the adds, and is very well worth it. Please keep up the good work, Thx Lin

  4. Joost van Zon-avatar

    Bit of a fail on my Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e. My eyes hurt under too much brightness. This app lets me dim some things more than with the standard controls, but leaves some parts of the screen blazing white, hurting my eyes. Also, upon first start up it actually raises the brightness, again hurting my eyes.

  5. Neoslayer PW-avatar

    Definitely needs an option to be enabled and disabled from the notifications area, since that's the only visible thing. Also, maybe a floating button option where it can be disabled with a double or triple tap?

    Best app! If you have the problem with it not popping up when holding the home button find the app on "assist voice and input" settings. Disable it if you get errors over other apps asking for permissions thanks!

  7. Anne Rominski-avatar

    If only Google would allow this to cover the drop-down menu/clock/etc. it would be perfect. As is, it makes looking at my phone in the evening tolerable. Thanks much!

  8. Orange Zippy-avatar

    This is absolutely amazing! I had installed many apps to lower my brightness even further but all of the just lowered my brightness as much as my phone could, they won't go dimmer. But this app is amazing! It's perfect for mid-night gaming when your parents don't know that you are up!πŸ˜†πŸ€«

  9. js alias-avatar

    Its better than my phones lowest brightness which was blinding to me. Now i read a 200 plus page book a week! And because it donr atraonbrhw eyes-the more Attenrion is available to take in rhw content. Samwbwith Adobe reader black bg. Ur morw drawn intobtjw subject because of the colour of the background. But you probably knew that..hehw THX! Much!

  10. Sarah Whited-avatar

    I have loved this app for a year and a half until the last few days. Since the last update, the ongoing notification in the notifications bar disappears and I have to go to the app itself to turn it on and off. Please fix this! If not I will find another app.

    Wonderful to operate when you are trying to be incognito in the dark. I give you 10 stars, but Google is limiting me from doing so. Thanks!

  12. Aerie Marsden-avatar

    Haven't had it on my phone for a while, sad to realise as I downloaded it a second ago it no longer works on the notifications screen. Hopefully it'll be updated to add that feature again -- this used to be my favourite screen dimmer app!!!!

  13. Jules Elise-avatar

    Do not purchase the upgrade. I really like the app in general BUT I bought the upgrade to stop the filter automatically in the morning and none of the premium features work at all. I do have Android 10 unsure if that is the issue. I checked all my setting to make sure it had the proper system allowances for the app and I waited to long for a refund, dang.

  14. Taggy Phunk-avatar

    It doesn't auto start or stop. But that's not a big deal. If you lower the brightness below your device then it puts a layer of solid black over your screen and you adjust it's opacity. Which I guess is the next best way to decrease the screens brightness of you can't adjust the actual LEDs on the screen. I use it often, but it could be better.

    There is a problem on Android 9, when I open any image in full screen the screen flickers and goes back to normal lighting for a second. Also, if I swipe down and use the notification bar, dimly doesn't work there. I'm still giving 5 stars because this app has been working perfectly for 5 years and to really express how much it has done for me I need more than 500 characters. Also, I hope that the devs fix the problems soon.

  16. Sebastian Fall-avatar

    Doesn't work on notification bar, however. Filters blue light, very little ads, and amazing for battery conservation. My phone goes almost pitch black and I love it. 5 stars

    I bought the premium version of this app and set up the timer. I turned off battery optimisation for this app and still the time automated program is not working. So disappointed in this app..

  18. Poo kie-avatar

    I wish I knew about this sooner, the dimmest setting on my phone is like 4 suns combined. The shake to go back to normal brightness is genius, as in blinding sunlight it's impossible to see the screen even on my phones default low setting. Great for sensitive eyes, as I get migraines and bright light only makes it worse. This is one of few apps I believe needs more than 5 stars.

  19. Hailee Beck-avatar

    Works great!! Doesn't change color of screen just dims like its supposed to. No ads, doesn't slow down or change phone at all.

    Great app!!! I'm a night owl. Usually stay up reading or playing phone games. I love that this app is free, very little adds. Simply an app to help the eyes of other people. I'd love to help fund you guys if possible. Maybe an ASMR app with visiuals and bineral beats with a timer to go to sleep? More content please!! Contact me if you would like funding or more ideas. Not rich but I support you!!!

    Does exactly what it advertises wonderfully. Absolutely no complaints, would definitely recommend for the adjustable settings.

  27. Koushik Guha-avatar

    This app only allows the user to make the screen either Bright or the Dim.Thereis no option for setting the "Colour Temperature" with a view for "avoiding Blue Light"(causes harm to eyes). Therefore, this app is not supposed to act as the Blue Light Filtration. One star I think is sufficient. Looking for comment from the developer.

  28. A B-avatar

    It is great..meanwhile many dim screen apps do not work on my pie android..the first time I run it directly went to floating management app and ta daaa .. it works properly..!! Tx

  29. Indigo Go-avatar

    I used to like this app before, but now I'm starting to hate it. Just a few minutes of using it, it suddenly stops and you have to turn it on again. It's quite annoying. πŸ˜’

  30. EchoAlpha-avatar

    This app helps so much for night time use and general use as well honestly. I get many migranes and being able to look at a screen that wont make things worse helps a lot

  31. Carole Marchal-avatar

    This is the worst possible app. It changed all my settings and even after removing it I cant get basic functionalities back. I have to send my phone for repair now.

  33. Atch Who-avatar

    Blue light filter sometimes stutters when opening the notification bar, but it works and the ads only play in the app and not other apps.

  34. Darshana Patel-avatar

    It's less complicated and easy to use. Will have to still check on the add interruption

  35. Hafiz Zuhdi-avatar

    Not. Working perfectly for me.That's because when turn on DIMLY its just a minute work and after that still the bright of my fhone come again :(

  36. Wendy Vue-avatar

    Works great! I like how easy it is to adjust the back light of the screen. Thanks for making this awesome app.

  37. SlapstickGags-avatar

    I have been using Dimly for a while. I enjoy it better than previous brightness apps because it also darkens notifications and other phone UI. However, recently, the app hasn't been showing up in the notifications despite the option being turned on.

    It worked ok for about 2 weeks, then it crashed. I uninstalled and reinstalled, but it continues to crash on launch and no linger dims at all. The auto-dim also doesn't work, plus it doesn't affect the notification shade at all. I'm very disappointed as I had high hopes.

    have been running this for 6 months now...Nexus6 & motog2 not had a fault at all...easy control from drop down tool bar at top of dcreen...can dim screen way down & has a blue light filter work great & seems to be easier on eyes on those late nights...definitely highly recommened over std display tools

    Meh...it feels and looks more like a blackener rather than a dimmer cause when im watching youtube alot of the screen and colors are black.

  43. Lion248-avatar

    This is one of the only good screen dimming apps on the play store because it actually makes your screen dim.

  44. Pizza PowerXYZ-avatar

    The app doesnt really have many options... Changing the max and min brightness is a must... but also not being able to change how much blue light is filtered? Really? You also can control were to put a dimly button. Like, if you wanted to have a special button instead of the notifications.This app is very disappointing compared to some other apps that are simalar. I hope you can fix this app because the name is simple and has a good UI... Please, fix this issue... But, it will get the job done!

  45. Miriana Dimi-avatar

    I use dimly every night when I'm laying in bed on my phone and can't sleep. It's easy setting and nice layout. I tried other night screens, but this is by far the best. Definitely recommend

    It used to be excellent, then android updated and it could no longer dim the white notification menu. But with another update, that is no longer a problem because it can be set to black! So it's once again good enough for me to install. Getting a notification from an app that uses white is still bright, but it's better than it has been for a while. If Dimly itself could have a black notification, that'd be nice πŸ˜ƒ

  48. A Google user-avatar

    LOVE LOVE LOVE the SHAKE TO RESTORE BRIGHTNESS option if you happen to go outside, for example, and can't see the screen anymore.. honestly, that alone is why this is the screen dimmer app that I use. The only reason its not getting 5 stars is because the notification panel and the soft keys on the screen don't dim as well (although the preview photos show that they do). However, I'd def change my rating in a heartbeat if the developers would make that adjustment. Thanks for the awesome app!

  49. noah llanos-avatar

    super effective app!!! helps a ton if your eyes hurt a lot and want to not get caught using your phone at night like me. just a minor setback, ometimes as im using my phone, dimly will suddenly stop working and my screen will go bright again foe about a minute, and then dimly will turn back on. ive checked all the setting and the timer is off and the shake is even turned off. please help!!! thank you

  50. Abby Trudell-avatar

    So far so good. Just downloaded and it dims real low. No ads yet but it's been 5 minutes at the time of writing. Will update if I feel the need to uninstall for a different dimmer app

    Overall love it. My ONLY complaint is that the notification bar does not dim and it's quite jarring to go from the lovely dim light to checking the notifications. (Especially at 3:30 am, which is when I downloaded it because I can't sleep!) Seems easy to use and I like the simple interface. Update the notification situation, and 5 stars A+ review from me! Thanks for creating!

  52. A Google user-avatar

    Does what it's supposed to do & freely i might add. Doesn't bombard you with too many adds interfering with app function like most free apps of any type do. Honestly it's a pretty impressive app, no gimmicks, simple & to the point. I've lost track of how long I've even been using this app it's been so long. Which is awesome in my opinion. I would recommend it to any/everyone.

  53. Kenneth Hobbs-avatar

    I really like this app a lot. It works vary well. The only reason I'm not giving it five stars is because it runs over everything except for my drop down menu. This is a problem because my eyes get adjusted to the dim screen but then are shocked when I pull down my super bright drop down menu. I have tried setting my phone screen brightness all the way down under phone setting but this has not seemed to make a difference. This is my only complaint, otherwise it is an excellent app. Thanks.

  54. Tina Burton-avatar

    It's okay. However extra notifications annoy me, and Dimly constantly has an undismissable notification. Maybe make a feature that shows it only when you pull down down the notification bar, and not constantly in the corner (Avast battery saver does this). Although this app works very well otherwise, I am looking for alternatives.

  55. A Google user-avatar

    Dimly is a incredible tool, its simple aproach to adjusting the settings through the notifications menu is genious, and the easy resetting of the brightness is easy, albeit annoying if done by accident. The settings menu is streamlined, and easy to use. Cannot comment on premium features, due to the fact I do not own them as of yet, albeit highly considering. Essentailly no battery drainage. Fixed my Samsung s7 sky pros problem. Edit: Only complaint is that it doesn't affect the sound menu.

  56. Briana Clark-avatar

    Great app for the most part, but tonight as I was considering unlocking pro mode, it started randomly shutting off, and needing to be reopened, which is incredibly frustrating when I'm in a pitch dark room trying to get my baby to sleep and not fall asleep myself. I'll be happy to change to 5 stars if this can be resolved.

  57. Eep Squared-avatar

    Worked great with Moto G4 but on Moto G7 Power it doesn't dim notification bar or bottom navigation button bar. Also, the screen flashes fully bright when the navigation and notification bars appear/disappear.

  58. Joe Mar Closa-avatar

    Best screen dimmer I've ever used. I'm not sure if it literally lowers the brightness or just dimming the contrast or something, but man, this app is out-stands apps I've used before.

  59. Maria Montoya-avatar

    This is the first thing I download on all my devices. It's simple, actually preserves my battery life instead of eating it, and has lovely customization settings. I'm light sensitive due to autism so this is a must-have application.

  61. Andre-avatar

    it's very good and ads are generally unobtrusive, however a major gripe I have is that the notification bar doesn't change in brightness and remains the same, so if I'm using my phone at night and I want to read my notifications I instantly have to go blind for a few seconds.. otherwise no problems at all

  62. Robin Morton-avatar

    i loooooooooove it !! i have a blu c5 phone and no matter how much i try to get it dem i could never get the brightness down until i downloaded this app and BOOM!!!! it dimmed just like that .. i never though google play would have an app like this i just thought of it and there it was .. and its better on my eyes two just like my zte max pro was i miss that phone but i love my blu phone to thank you so much googs for making this app and thinking of this brilliant idea and thinking of us ...😁😁

  63. Sonja Dippie-avatar

    I love this app. I like to read as I'm falling asleep & no matter what I did my screen was still to bright till I found dimly. Now I can make my screen so dark I can't even see it if I want, making it ideal for reading in the dark. Plus added bonus, I no longer wakie my husband because I'm checking my phone at all hours (pregnant daughter means late night texts and calls)or reading at 3am and lighting up the room. I highly recommend this app. I've tried others but they pale in comparison!

  64. Patricia Grace-avatar

    Does the job. I can read on my phone at night comfortably with this app. Ads aren't intrusive. Works well for me on Android 8.0 and it's easy to start and stop.

    This app met my expectations. No dirty ads, but it would be best if your Android is equipped with AdAway and AdBlocker Reborn. That way, you'll get ads out of your apps. But the developer is not focusing on this app anymore, because look at the latest update. Anyone who has Android Oreo or higher should go to another screen dimmer that is properly tested with those versions.

    How have I been an Android user for so long and not known about Dimly? I'm always quite sensitive to light, even the dimmest setting is too bright, Dimly fixes that. it could be improved - I would have to want the camera to pick up the ambient light levels and dims accordingly this would mean when it's really sunny you can still use Dimly without it bleaching out the phone characters.

    Doesn't dim your notification bar at the top of your phone. Those icons are at full brightness while the rest of the screen is dimmed.

    Soo good app .This is absolutely necessary to filter blue light which affects your eyes

    Perfect Utility App Easy to use UI, Recommend acquiring Premium for auto start time all round nice app

    This is perfect for people who get migranes from a bright phone screen. Even at the lowest setting on my phone it is still much too bright when im in bed. there is not only a brightness setting that runs on top of your default brightness (giving you higher/lower brightness range) but there is also a night mode called "blue light filter" which allows you to raise brightness without increasing eye strain. The ads are small banners that are at the bottom of the menu - very unintrusive.

    Pretty good, except for the fact that when the brightness is at its lowest, and I want to go back to my toolbar, it is so bright.

  75. Aryeh Sheinson-avatar

    i use this because i get migraines. it works very well, and is simple. I think if they wanted to be super awesome, they could make it so that this can be an icon in the pull down menu, like data, airplane mode, blue light filter, WiFi, etc. but it's already great, and i don't think you can do that anyway.

  76. Zani B-avatar

    I've tried most of the rest, but the Dimly app is by far the best. My personal opinion, it's not just a little better...it conquers the other dimmer apps. Very easy to use. And the option of allowing me to personalize it is what actually puts this app over the top.

    Just paid for it and I've only ever paid for two apps so far. That says two things, firstly, That I am cheap and power through ads on instead of handing over the dough, and secondly, that this economy under our current leaders, is disgraceful, and I am the bottom 1%(not the good 1%). Posted with my free EBT phone. Thanks Obama!

    GREAT APP l HAVE BEEN USING THIS APP FOR 5+ YEARS . VERY SIMPLE WITH ONLY 1 permission ALLOW TO WORK OVER OTHER APPS .

    Works extreemly well, even a bit too well. I accidentally turned the minimum brightness all the way down to zero and I couldn't find a way to undo it, to fix this I just had to blindly restart my phone but other than that it's a great app.

    Good in low storage nd diffrent technique displays ( IPS, SUPER AMOLED, TFT) give diffrent resultS best performance ive got in samsung super amoled and sony smartphones it can be improve features or creat new ones for ips displays like Oppo, Vivo, Xiaomi devices who making whole world blind from their harmfull displays.

  81. Eggy-avatar

    The top panel is too bright, which is counterproductive. Crashes from time to time. Useful idea.

  82. Fer-avatar

    Have to say that I've been using this app for a long time, until I got Oreo update of which it doesn't dim the entire notification panel. I just hope that you can fix this for Oreo. EDIT: I'm sorry to hear about Google forcing to deprecate TYPE_SYSTEM_OVERLAY in Android O, my guess it's for security reasons... Guess I it's time to go custom ROM then...

  83. Ben H-avatar

    great app for dimming the backlight on your phone or tablet but there is one flaw. If you set your brightness dimmer to low you cannot see the screen and therefore your device is practically useless! and yes there is a warning pop up that appears before you try and do that but if the app itself had a minimum brightness level that minimum level should be sp at least you can see the screen. Just very faint. However it is a useful app if you use it wisely!

  84. Erica-avatar

    i like that it's not excessive with tons of features. i only need it to dim my screen more than phone default-night made or apply blue light filter. I've tested 3-4 other apps and this was most easy to use and quickly able to turn on or adjust. i have Google pixel 3. i wish one of these apps would also dim the bottom home buttons and top drop down notification menu. I'd give it 4 stars for that but it's better than the others i tried.

    Very nice app. Online reading caused weakness on the eye. This app supported me a lot ... My heartfelt thanks to the creator of this aap. Everybody should use .... very good aap. ❀️

  86. G Jackson-avatar

    Awesome!!!, on my Samsung the brightness only goes so low, so this app is PERFECT

  87. Owen C-avatar

    Brilliant app! So simple to use, many great features (auto-off, increase brightness on screen wake + shake, "night mode", etc). It allows me to decrease my brightness WAY below the lowest default setting on my phone. Thank you very much! I cannot recommend this enough :)

  88. Reana Kua-avatar

    Used to be better on my other phones, but now it's super bright for the drop down notif bar and the chat heads. Used on Huawei P10.

    A lot of times I'll be reading late at night and my tablet will glitch and the screen gets super bright andbi have to turn off and on the screen a couple of times before dimly starts working again. But asidefrom this, I love the fact that it gives you different options for how to start dimly,rather than having to exit my original app to go and click on dimly.

  90. Awnia-avatar

    Exceptionally good app. Although with my galaxy a70 it's a bit buggy, the notification bar isn't affected at all (in fact it's brighter than with lowest stock brightness vs the app's lowest.) Also would be nice to be able to change the color temperature. If these 2 would be fixed/changed, it'd be 5 stars from me!

  91. a.h.linda !-avatar

    I have been needing an app that dims my phone because it 's bright even at its lowest. This works and has no addsπŸ‘ŒπŸ½

  92. Cheryl Rose-avatar

    what Stephanie B said. i jist downloaded this and so far so good. downloaded quickly, easy simple controls accessible from the top bar, gets the job done. but yes, when u drag the noti bar down tk adjist, the bar/panel is as bright as your phone without the app. it doesnt affect it at all

  93. Adam Spencer-avatar

    At night in bed, I fins my screen is often too bright even with a blue light on. So this app helps so much.

  94. Axi-avatar

    it was good till I played around with the settings, I turned my phone minimum brightness to 0% and got my phone stuck at black, I turned it off in a quick panic and couldn't use my password, later I tried turning my phone off completely than on completely but found out that I need the password for that, I was going to let it die but it would be very slow but I grabbed my sister's phone to search up a way to force shut off my phone till I tried turning it back on and it did, it came back so 10/10.

    Terrific app it does as it says... but can you please dim the notification bar too? It's super bright but other than that flaw it is an amazing app. I do reccomend it to people. Keep up the good work.

  96. A Google user-avatar

    Too bad Motorola/google undid everything good about this after the Oreo update, and makes this app almost useless. Between the top nav bar and bottom one blaring white, and if u get a notification that is blinding white, and now u can't leave the notication icon on cause it's blinding white.... It's hard to turn off especially if u accidentally turn dimly to total black. Good luck, that's a doozy to undo, hence the 3 stars

  97. craig brown-avatar

    Almost exactly what I hoped and apparently an update is coming that will give the possibility of controlling the brightness directly from the notification bar. When this happens, I will buy the premium version. Hey Dev, do it soon and you can have my money πŸ˜€ Also, please make the little symbol's presence on the notification bar optional, thanks!

  98. A Google user-avatar

    I highly recommend this app for using your phone at bed time. It helps alot and this one is the best. The others contains alot of ads. This one do contain ads but not alot. I hope you can remove the ads but other than that this app is perfect!πŸ‘Œ

  99. Daniel DeBoer-avatar

    Had this app for ages. Does exactly what it should do and is great for using in pitch darkness. Great functionality. Ads are not intrusive in the slightest. Best of all the dimming apps ive tried. The only con is this app makes screenshots darker because the app uses a screen filter, but every app like this has this issue from my experience.

  100. Reac Tivity-avatar

    Want to know what this developer did with the ads? He included them in the downloading memory usage so you HAVE to pay to get rid of them! So, I have denied an Internet access to this app, forced it to stop and reopened. And it still shows ads. Three stars only because it is working properly, no more.
