Shady

Version: 1.0.3 || Release Date: 2010-06-10 || License: Freeware Developer: Instinctive Code | App Owner: strangebirds

Overlays a semi-transparent layer on your Mac's screen to shade it further the system allows.

Modern Macs have exceptionally bright screens, and often the minimum brightness level is still dazzling. If you're working late at night, or your eyes are tired or maybe you're just sensitive to bright light, it can be difficult to stare at the screen for long periods. That's where Shady comes in.

Shady's job is to soothe your dazzled eyes.
