New App - Glight

I just found this. It is supposed to control the back light adjustment by using the light sensor. Here is the link:

Re: New App - Glight

Touch pro already does this. Set backlight to autoadjust in power properties =]

Yeah, but this program makes the light sensor adjustment customizable.

Re: New App - Glight

What's the point of the light sensor anyway other than quicker battery drain? It's nice to know that your phone is light aware, but I mean when it comes down to it readability is all around pretty good in any light setting, which is at least what I've noticed.

Re: New App - Glight

one thing that I have noticed is that my backlight (or maybe the power altogether) turns off after 30-40 seconds when using Garmin. i have my power settings to do this to save power but these are the settings that I have had along with my Touch and Diamond and do not remember that happening with this program specifically. Will this program help me set the backlight/power not to go off for Garmin specifically?

I used S2U2 with those phones so maybe that was what was preventing the light/power from being turned off using Garmin. I am not sure.

Sounds to me you have a more powerful 3rd party app controlling settings in the background? Phonealarm, phoneweaver? Also make sure that Garmin settings are enabled for always on.

A backlight level of, say, 2 or 3 is great for sitting around at home but is unreadable outside or in very bright environments. Likewise, 2 or 3 is too bright when in a movie theater or dark room.

The auto adjusting backlight is *awesome*.

Re: New App - Glight

Hm. I changed a setting, it crashed, and now it won't restart even if I uninstall and reset the phone.

Anyone know which registry settings it might change?

Re: New App - Glight

Ah, the author emailed me back and said that I need to delete the settings.xml file. It works now.

I also realized that it takes over for the built-in auto backlight, so you need to leave the auto-backlight off.
