this app store is an unacceptable tutelage and a typical greedy commercial excess of our days - an increasing number of mac users refrain from using it, you won't believe it until you see it.

Works fine. But the shortcut keys don't seem to work, no matter for shortkey combination selected. Even with clicking on the slider and using shortcut keys they don't work on 10.9.

Does what it says, and flawlessly. Always used SmartSaver on Snow Leopard. Went over to Mavericks and wanted something similar (SmartSaver is not compatible). Two cons though: 1. Slider moves the opposite way from what you (I) expect. 2. Only available at the Mac App Store. So it immediately installs. Hate that! And no DMG or ZIP to backup.

Can we see a multi monitor support here? It would be nice to have a slider for all X monitors that are on a system.

Yeah, if it would work with SecondBar or something, and allow independent monitor control that would be excellent. I have two displays, and the the secondary one being on all the time is a pain.

Screen snapshots taken with the screen dimmed by Brightness Slider generates a correspondingly dimmed image -- unlike Shades which captures a fully lit image, though that app occasionally fails to launch when booting. I surmise that most of these screen dimmers place a translucent shaded window as a top-most layer and take the snapshot above that layer rather than below it which requires one to remember to fully brighten the screen before capturing a portion of it!

From the name "Shades" and from a comment there, it sounds it is a filter, that makes one's screen appear darker, but in reality the physical lighting is the same. This would be why screen shots with Shades on still gives a fully lit image. If this app provides dimmed screen shots when the screen is dimmed by it, then I would surmise that it is actually changing the brightness of the hardware -- as the product description says. But this is just my take on the matter; I'd love some corroboration by the developer if this is indeed so, or to be set straight.

This works just fine on my NEC monitor - much easier to use than the built-in onscreen monitor controls. Though I sometimes take a pass on software from the Mac App Store because there is no trial version available, because this app is free, there is no risk involved in getting it from the MAS.

I hate the app store and the DEMAND YOU offer an apple ID to get this so they can stick their corporate nose in what you are putting in your computer. 1Pass only works half the time so it did not give the password so no software for me
