As you can probably tell from its name, Brighter Screen Lite is a lightweight Mac application that can help you adjust the brightness of your screen in a very simple manner. Even though Mac OS X allows you to easily modify the brightness of your screen, this tool provides you with a way to take that even further.

After launching the Brighter Screen Lite, it will stay minimized in the Menu Bar, from where you can easily adjust the brightness with just a few clicks of a mouse. What makes this application more useful than the standard way of modifying the luminosity of your screen is the fact that you can take the brightness level up to 103 percent (105 % if you buy this tool) or dim down to 10 percent and, if you decide to purchase the advanced version, you will gain access to the ability to run it in "Movie Mode".

Other than that, not much more can be said about the Brighter Screen Lite. This small application doesn't offer you any graphical interface, but, with the help of the customizable shortcut keys, you can easily adjust the brightness of your screen in no time and with very little effort.

Overall, if you are looking for a lightweight Mac application that can help you adjust the brightness of your screen more than with the help of the standard brightness controller, then you might want to give the Brighter Screen Lite a try.
