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.
What's New in Version 1.1.1
- bugfix regarding logging to "console"
App is ready for OS X Yosemite
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!
To the company who created this software
I can’t seem to run it on my Apple Mac Mini.
I was enthused when I saw someone wrote an app for eye-friendly display settings.
However, I wanted to make sure that I can fix whatever problem is preventing me from running this app.
When I click it, it does nothing. :(
Please let me know how to remedy this problem by responding here on the thread perhaps, or by requesting my contact info.
