When a screen of a Smartphone becomes dark, this application eithers tells users to adjust brightness by dragging down the upper part of a screen or suggests them to close unused applications. It also provides frame speed of a gaming application that is used frequently and ways to reduce amount of electric current by reducing resolution.
