    too bright at night even on lowest brightness setting. Is there an app that allows to lower the brightness level even more?

    Dimmer. It's one of the main reasons I jailbreak!

    From Cydia, like any other tweak. F.lux I think has a lot of other options for making the colors on your screen warmer or cooler. Dimmer is just for making the brightness slider go darker.

    The taping four times the volume button saved me though! I had it too dark whereas I couldn't even see the screen.

    Open Settings and then tap General. Next, tap Accessibility. Finally, tap the switch for the "White and Black" setting to turn it ON. The colors on the iPad screen will invert. Black reverses to white and other colors reverse to their color-opposites.

    I use "Night Web Browser by Alex" to browse the web in the dark. It's only a web browser but you at least don't have to jailbreak to dim the screen more. :)

    f.lux is both on my iphone and mba which has improved eye strain.

    it does take a few days to get used to it so be patient.

    F.Lux is the main reason I have my ipad mini and iPhone jailbroken. The slow
    Translation is so smooth I don't even notice the screen gets warm.

    Try "Night web browser by Alex"! I'm often using it in the evening when my girlfriend is trying to sleep. It dims the screen much more then iPhone normally can. :)
