[APP] InvisiBright – Invisible Brightness Util!
Hey guys, I have an app out called InvisiBright and I’m looking for your feedback. Here’s a brief description:
Use search key hold or status bar shortcuts to activate an invisible overlay above any application. Then simply swipe anywhere to adjust the brightness quickly. Done!

Check it out!
