Insanely useful for anyone connecting multiple computers to their displays (although this is just one of the many use cases). A new Mac classic is born.

Review of Lunar Lite
Does exactly what it says it will do, easy keyboard shortcut, and fair price. I can't believe MacOS doesn't have this out of the box

Review of Lunar 2.0

Upvoted, but...

This I like about it the most:

- It's free

- It's working as described

- Has clean UI

- Smooth and logical UX

- Manual/Location/Sync Modes

What I did not like, the settings out of the box...

I set the mode to manual to test it out and I used given shortcuts to increase/decrease the brightness/contrast. It all works but changing both and having contrast really high or really low, didn't make sense.

I saw the options for setting minimum and maximum contrast/brightness and after a quick setup modifications, I liked the way it works.

It's not really a con, it's just something to think about... Maybe add a default settings out of the box that works best for most of the people?

Also, I'd really love if you can make brightness keys working, when MacBook is in clamshell (closed-display) mode. Cause currently, the keys are not working and I had to use the shortcuts provided CMD + OPT + NUMBER.

I am using my MacBook in clamshell mode all of the time, unless I hit the road. So this feature might be perfect improvement, if you can make it.

Currently I'm using an "Monitor Control" app, to have my brightness and volume controlled on external screen, but it's buggy.

Review of Lunar 2.0
Great Product. The UX is amazing... Wanted to ask. I have a MBP 16" connected to a Thunderbolt Display and a Dell Monitor via usb c. However I have my MBP closed most of the time. I noticed that when I do close the lid the SYNC option turns off. So I wanted to ask if it would be possible to be able to get the sync data from the Thunderbolt display as that has adaptive brightness based on ambient light. Same as the laptop display. Also when i try and change the brightness in manual mode there seems to be no effect on the thunderbolt display. the OSD shows up and moves up and down but the display brightness stays the same. I have no issues changing the brightness on the dell display.

Review of Lunar 2.0

Lunar 2.0 finally takes advantage of the built-in light sensor of my Macbook to bring adaptive brightness for the external displays.

Working in a room with a lot of natural light is much more enjoyable now!

Review of Lunar 4
On the previous version, my monitors had some issues and wouldn't work consistently, one monitor would fade but not the other. This was no fault with the Lunar app, it was just my monitors were an uncommon brand using cheap cables. With Lunar 4 Pro all that has been resolved. I haven't changed anything and it just works. Upgrading to version 4 has actually saved me money. Also, I love just how native this looks and feels when using the hotkeys on my non-Mac keyboard.
