Screen Shade allows you to control the brightness of your screen. This customizable app allows you to place a shade over your screen to reduce the strain on your eyes. Screen Shade will reduce your Mac's brightness on demand, without any risk to your activities on your computer. Screen Shade was built specifically to save on energy consumption.

The simplicity of Screen Shade will make the app extremely easy to use. All the programming is hidden behind simple light intensity sliders. Easy to use and extremely effective.

Ever have to work around people that for example are trying to sleep (hotel room) simply shade your screen and continue working without lighting up the room like a candle.

Screen Shade even allows you to control multiple screens at the same time.

This is another example of iLifeTouch building apps that make your life easier one day at a time. Please use and enjoy.

almost the best, but no hot keys

I used several dimmer apps on mac, this one is the best one, stable and compact. But the only shortage is the shortcuts. this app does not support shortcuts, which sometime could be very annoying when you are focusing.

Thanks for your review, mentioning the point.
We will look into adding shortcuts, in the next update.

Multi screen

I often have problems with matching brightness on a second mac which is being used as an external monitor. This has all the functionality needed to control the levels on multi-screen setups. Highly recommended.

does a good job

I think the basic job it does of 'dimming' the screen is very good - I love the slider to alter the level of darkening, and it's great that there are different filter options.

A few minor things:

Currenty it excludes the cursor from the filter - I'd like the option for the filter to be applied to the cursor too.

The shutdown window is also not filtered, which I find very jarring when it pops up.

A timer option - like f.lux has, would appeal to a lot of people.
