Useful app

Create a distraction-free desktop/work environment to help you focus on your task; set keyboard short cuts to enable and disable the single-app mode or instantly hide the currently active app— it’s simple and fast, and has a small footprint. Highly recommended.

Great app! Multiple monitors

This app is a must for me. Great job! Please add configurable multiple monitor support with the option to hide apps only on one of them. Thanks!

Good but a few ideas...

Hides is good. It’s competent, does what it says and isn’t a resource hog. I like and use it. I’d love to see the following added:

- make the menubar icon a button rather than a pulldown menu. Clicking and holding down the icon and aiming for the Hide All Apps item slows me down and is tedious. I know there is a keyboard equivelent but I prefer my mouse. At the very least, the “Hide All Apps” selector should be at the very top of the menu. If it were a button an alt-click would open the regular menu.
- I’d love to see the option for window transitions to have a fade effect
- I’d like to see this hide desktop icons, similar to Camouflage
