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.

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!

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.
