TIP: MacBooster 2 - A powerful, recommended cleaner for your Mac.
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 lets you pull a virtual shade over your screen (or screens, if you have more than one - Shady covers them all), dimming the display to a more comfortable level. The shade will ignore your mouse clicks, naturally, so you can continue to use your Mac as usual.
You can brighten the shade all the way up to your normal screen brightness, or darken it down to 90% shade (very nearly black). It'll change in increments of 5%, and it starts at 40% opacity (or 60% transparency), which should be quite comfortable.
Shady will save your shade level and restore it next time you launch the app, and it'll also automatically get out of your way when it's launched (returning the focus to whatever app you were in when you launched Shady).
• Shade your screen up to 90%.
• Quickly change shade level from your menubar.
• Works with multiple screens (no matter how many you have).
• Smooth shade adjustments via Core Animation.
• Completely safe for your screen.
• Choose whether Shady appears in the Dock or not.
• Automatic or manual updates.
