Screen Filter

This mod puts a transparent view on top of the window manager in order to darken the whole screen.

Once activated, the mod adds a toolbox below the header of your expanded status bar where you can easily switch ON or OFF the filter and set its transparency using the seek bar (only if the filter is active).
A settings activity is also available to control the filter and other settings (such as tuning or hiding the toolbox).

Screen Filter is mostly designed to lower you screen's luminosity and allow you to use your device in the dark without killing your eyes, but you can also use it as a screen privacy guard!
Also, on AMOLED screens, reducing the luminosity improves your battery's lifetime!
