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.

Due to my work schedule, I work at night a lot. 2x 23” Apple Displays are too bright for normal use late at night. This app does the job of dimming both screen simultaneously. Moreover, the option to keep the menu-bar and dock un-dimmed is a great thing.

Dimming stops for a time if you switch desktop

The dimming diables for a couple of seconds whenever I switch between desktops, so this app is useless for me. Waste of money.

Doesn’t dim multiple displays!

I bought this app to dim the 2 additional 24” screens I have plugged into my 27” iMac with 5K retina display and it didn’t work - waste of £2.29!
