[prMac.com] Buffalo, New York - XCool Apps today is pleased to announce iBrightness, their latest app designed for Apple's MacBook line of portable computers. iBrightness is now available on the Mac App Store, and is targeted at filling the gap for one of the most basic features that should have been built-in to each MacBook that Apple sells.
You see, whenever we turn the power adapter on or off, our MacBooks will automatically adjust the screen brightness. However, it switches the brightness according to what it thinks is right, sometimes depending on what it feels like, even when we switched off the automatic brightness setting.
We work on our Macs the whole day, and we grew tired of our MacBooks constantly forgetting the brightness level that we have set whenever we change power sources, so we came out with the idea for iBrightness.
Besides allowing you to freely adjust your brightness level straight from the menu bar, iBrightness sits in the menu bar, waiting for your Mac's power source to change and then re-adjusts the screen brightness according to what you have previously set. No more guessing if the screen will be too dim when you move away from the power socket, or if it will be too bright because you turned to the power adapter. iBrightness is here to keep the guessing game away.
Automatically adjust your portable Mac's screen brightness when switching power source
Separate brightness levels for each power source: battery or power adapter
Adjust screen brightness levels easily from the comfort of your menu bar
Option to run app on system startup (recommended)
Notes: iBrightness is designed for portable Macs like the MacBook, MacBook Air and MacBook Pro running Mac OS X v10.6 Snow Leopard or above. You may run this app on non-portable Macs, but with reduced functionalities.
