Thread: ToggleBacklight Application
10-30-2008, 11:28 AM #41
Nice idea but still too much to tap.
Why not integrate a brightness toggle into SBSettings?
Anyone has an idea how to realise this?
For the beginning this could either toggle to full or lowest brightness.
I emailed bigboss about the brightness toggle, I'll post his message in case he answers.

I think a "switch" to control brightness is not as intuitave as a actuall slider, but the day I can program for the iphone is the day I am allowed to complain about one or the other. at this point anything would help.
and to back up my claim, i have flashlight on my Stack, and I can toggle brightness in about 10 seconds and another 10 seconds to turn it back off.. it requires 1 tap from my thumb to launch stacks and 1 tap to launch flashlight, and I hold the home button down to quit it and background enable..
its actually not that bad and a really easy solution while we wait

There was an app called 'togglebacklight' 0.0.1-2 back in April on the former modmyifone repo, "utilities" section. It worked great. I wonder if someone is working on porting it..?

^^ lol, this IS that app

Anyone know if this app or any app out there allows you to keep the backlight on while the phone is on the Lock screen?
I'd really like this option so I could just walk by my phone to see if I missed a call. Using the Never auto-lock option doesn't really work since the icons are too small.

It should be a few icons on the springboard...one for Bright, one for Medium, and one for Low brightness.

Seems like a lot of Springboard real estate for manual brightness adjustment?
Maybe the application could set the brightness based on your screen position than immediately exit?
Would vertical or horizontal work better?

What do you mean? It would be cool to have an app that resides in the settings app, under its' own heading/category- whatever. All it would need is two sliders and a toggle. One for normal brightness, and then another for the alternate brightness. The toggle would be for setting the app to double tap. I'm sure it's easier said than done

that toggle is for SBSettings 1.0 - should be released very soon according to the website. I am very excited about both the brightness toggle and the ability to theme my SBsetting into something more sleek, transparent, and glossy blackish

man im STILL waiting for this app... ugh. i miss it so much from 1.1.4
i just used the brightness settings in SBsettings for the first time and its quicker than the normal way to adjust it, but i still want the original ToggleBacklight idea where its just an icon with 2 predetermined brightness settings and you toggle back and forth between them by just pressing the icon.
Someone HAS to be able to port this over to 2.0+
I just think people arent really working on it much and are working on other apps.

sbsettings is nice because i can access it without exiting the app i am currently in, but I agree a toggle would be much better than the current slider which for me at least can be difficult to activate.

bump!... i am willing to PAY for this app to be create... someone please do it.
12-29-2008, 12:53 AM #56i would pay too!
Maybe we can contact the original developer. anyone know how to contact them?

Sorry, guys, I've been waiting for a binary toolchain (cause getting Cygwin working the first time was painful and I'm a programmer - I'm lazy) but I am giving up on binary and Windows.
I found some directions for getting this working on my Mac, so I hope to get it running in the next few weeks and ToggleBacklight is first on my list of non-SDK applications.

Excellent! I'm glad to hear that it may be updated soon. Thanks for reviving the thread NetMage
