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 a simple light intensity slider or simple shortcut keys. 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.

The Best every screenshade

I've been very happy with this app for years. It keeps getting better. The screen can get very dark. I can turn down the computer shade for a break and watch a movie in total darkness while the computer works.

Very intuitive design. Daytime, Reading, and Primary Screen settings are great too.

Very stable. The best! Thank you.

Works great. No flickering

It works great for the intended purpose. It has no flickering/shadowing when scrolling. Note that I use dual displays and it works flawlessly with both.

Gripes... It is 23MB, vs 1.6mb for the 2nd best app. What's with the bloat? Also, I can't customize the presets? They don't affect the main function, so it didn't affect my rating for it.

Works well

For what it does it works well. The only thing I don’t like is that screenshade only applies to one virtual desktop on a physical monitor. That forces me to only use one virtual desktop once it’s night time. Other than that good work Raj.
