If you feel like the adaptive screen brightness sensors on your Android are too unstable for your tastes when you’re using it in your vehicle (for navigation) – maybe this new app called AutoBright might be for you. Adaptive screen brightness sensors react real-time to environmental data, so your phone might go up and down on the brightness dial because of street lights and such. Maybe this will solve that problem.


First up, the AutoBright app does not rely on real-time data. It gets the sunset/sunrise time in your area once a day, when you’re connected to the Internet. It then gradually adjusts your device brightness during those times, fading to brighter or darker depending on the time. That alone should tell you this might be useful.

But the app also has a very low footprint – it’s “set and forget” like. The app does not query GPS locations every single time, and does not require that much of your device’s resources to run. The app is also optimized to run on very low battery usage.

The downside, if there is one, is that you only get a 10-day trial for this. It’s full-featured, but you have to pay for the app after 10 days of use. If you want to try it out, check the download link below and tell us about it.
