    Is there someway I can program a widget or create some shortcut to toggle autobrightness on and off? The fastest way I found so far is to create a shortcut to Display, but form there I still need to tap Brightness and then finally tap auto-brightness. Is there a faster way to do this? I have Nova Prime.

    Also, when I plug in a pair of headphones, on the notification bar, there is a notification for headphones and there is a list of about 4 apps that pop up in there that can be used with ehadphones. Is there a way to change what apps are displayed? Could I put Pandora in there somehow?

    Thanks.

    Lux Free brightness

    You could use Tasker to create a single touch widget that would auto-adjust you're brightness, volume, launch an app, ect. I personally use Tasker with timed profiles to do things like turn off my ringer, turn on auto-brightness, and lower my media volume when I get to work. I could create a single button widget through Tasker to jump to this profile as well.

    The app isn't free but worth the cost. It can be a little confusing but there's tutorials on YouTube and once you figure it out you'll love it.

    Unfortunately those apps in your pull down aren't editable. Those are cooked into Touchwiz regardless of what launcher you're using.

    You'll have to put them on your screen, although you could quickly jump into the Tasker menu from your notification bar.

    I think Verizon's the only vBulletin one who hasn't gotten it. Unless T-Mobile hasn't gotten it either. Such a shame. You'll have it eventually though. Second question. I have no idea.

    Since we're all suggesting our favorite brightness apps I'll recommend https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...playBrightnessFastest way to toggle auto-brightness; and Change plug in headphone apps?-uploadfromtaptalk1349587966985.jpgEdit: have you tried scrolling left or right when that list of media apps comes up? I don't think you can add Pandora but since it's a music player you'd think it would show up.

    yeah PowerAmp doesnt show up mate and its my default music player

    p.s, DisplayBrightness seems best option for anyone without the brightness slider update

    I use Tasker for this - I have a nice auto-brightness toggle on my home screen.

    I use an app called "display brightness ", now I have an invisible slider on the right side of my screen to adjust the brightness whenever I want. You can also set it up so when you hold it down it toggles auto brightness. Also on verizon here, so I too have no slider in the notification bar.


    Edit: just realized it's already been suggested. Mah bad.
