    "Nice app if you have nonstandard keyboard"

    September 27, 2010  |   By dsew

    Version: Brightness 1.1.2

    Pros

    * Makes life easier when you can't use standard brightness keys
    * An ordinary app, doesn't modify your system

    Cons

    Probably an unneeded program for most users with standard Mac keyboards

    Summary

    I use an old Mac-compatible ergonomic keyboard with my iMac that doesn't have any dedicated hardware-control keys. Until now, changing display brightness has meant keeping the Displays icon on the menu bar and then (1) clicking the icon, (2) clicking Displays Preference , (3) going to the Preferences window and sliding the bar, (4) closing the Displays window. Brightness.app shortens all that to (1) click on Brightness icon, (2) slide the slider and release.

    It adds a menu bar icon, but now I don't have to keep the Displays icon up there.
