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.

What's New in Version 1.6

Customer Reviews

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.

cant tell the difference

i need my money back. 5 is too much for a crappy app.
