Display Resolution Switching gets casual.
– Four mice in Macworld review –
– Recommended by Marco Arment ( –

Have to get real work done? Get more screen space. Tired after work? Get larger text.
With just a keystroke. In superb sharpness*.

- Use keyboard shortcuts (configurable) to casually step through display resolutions
- Let the location of your mouse pointer decide which display to be affected
- Skip resolutions by hitting a shortcut repeatedly
- Eye-Friendly will display resolution descriptors en passant while you are stepping
- Enjoy superb sharpness (in HiDPI modes*)
- Observe HiDPI and native resolutions tagged as "eye-friendly" and optionally hide any other

Once hooked you won't want to miss Eye-Friendly.

*) HiDPI modes available only on Retina Macbooks or Macs with Quartz Debug installed.

Screen shot images aren’t accurate

The screen shots associated with this app are false and do not properly represent the actual app specifications. One of the provided app images shows 1680x1050. That option is not provided when downloading and installing this application. I would like a refund due to misrepresentation.

To all looking at this application, do not spend the money for this application until it’s fixed.

I can finally use the full resolution of my retina display without feeling like I’ve got a 640x480 display! (albiet a very pretty one)
I have my 13” MPB Retina running at 1680x1050 and it feels worlds better!
Thank you so much… for the price of a cup of coffee, my productivity has improved no end!

I’m trying to find a solution to use my 1600x900 resolutin external monitor. MacOS doesn’t have that option natively, only 10 alternatives (from 800x600 to 1920x1080), but not this particular resolution. This application only shows 800x600 for the external monitor, which is completely different from the screen shot in the description.
