  • You're right - there is no API that would allow an App to set the screen brightness or adjust any other system settings. Only linking to some select settings is possible using the LaunchUri feature of the OS (screen brightness isn't one of them).

  • I think Microsoft should be little bit libaral and open these APIs for developers.

  • Requests like this should be directed to the Windows Phone Development Uservoice page which you can find here: http://wpdev.uservoice.com/forums/110705-dev-platform

    That being said - I'm rather of the opinion that system settings should not simply be changeable by Apps.
