The beautiful LED keyboard backlight is perhaps one of the most beloved features of Mac laptops. With Lab Tick for Mac, users can now fine-tune their settings to customize this feature.

Installation of this app is a very easy drag-and-drop process. The interface is very straightforward and rudimentary, too. Once installed, Lab Tick for Mac will sit very conveniently on top of the menu bar while running in the background. When you click the icon on top of the menu bar, a slider will pop up, allowing you to adjust the brightness of your keyboard backlight. For the adventurous users, there is a preference pane to mess with more advanced settings such as updating frequency of the LED, which helps to save the battery life of your Mac. There's even an option to add a quick shortcut key to toggle the brightness of the LED or to turn it off. This is perfect for advanced users who bind shortcut keys to every possible command on their Mac.

Lab Tick for Mac seems to be a very useful app, allowing users to fine-tune the brightness of their keyboard backlight to the desired level. This app offers many customization options that will particularly appeal to advanced Mac users.
