Displays updated to version 1.3
One month after its launch on the Mac App Store, we’re releasing a new version 1.3 for our app Displays, a powerful monitors manager for OS X. This update is available through the Mac App Store.
We drastically improved the screenshot feature. First, you can now choose the default location and filename of screenshots. By default, Displays will always ask where to save the screenshot, but this behavior can be changed in Preferences. Second, we implemented full support for Dropbox and CloudApp services: after taking a screenshot, you can upload it automatically and the link will be copied to the pasteboard. In Displays Preferences, you can choose to be asked before uploading the screenshot and you can play a sound and show notification when upload is done. We’ll add other services in future releases.
We also improved other parts of the app. When you’re using the “Hide desktop icons” feature, all your desktop functions are disabled, which sometimes can be frustrating. So, drag and drop is now supported on your desktop even if you’re hiding desktop icons. When drag occurs, the desktop is revealed and when you drop the file, your desktop icons are hidden again. Last, the mouse pointer highlighter can now distinguish between left and right click (different color).

AirPlay support in Displays 1.2.1
We’ve just updated Displays to version 1.2.1, available on the Mac App Store. Displays is our new app for OS X to manage all monitors attached to your Mac, with features like easy resolution change, Picture in Picture, Night mode or Virtual laser pointer.
In this new version, we’ve added full support for AirPlay monitors. You can use all Displays features with your AirPlay monitor, especially our Picture in Picture mode which lets you watching what’s going on another monitor. Note that your AirPlay monitor could be identified as “Unknown” in our app (we’re still working on a better way to identify AirPlay monitors).
Apart from bugs fixes and general performance improvements, we’ve also added a dark theme for our app. When OS X is switched to Dark mode, our app Displays will automatically use its dark theme, instead of the normal appearance.

New update 1.2 for Displays
We’ve just released a major update for Displays, our new app to manage monitors. This version 1.2 comes with a lot of new features and fixes bugs reported by users. And now, Displays speaks Italian too.
Hide your desktop icons
When doing presentations or demos, you don’t really want to show the mess on your desktop to your audience, isn’t it? Now Displays can quickly hide all icons sitting on your desktop, on all screens. Use a custom keyboard shortcut or use the appropriate icon in Displays toolbar.
No need to open the Grab tool of OS X! You can now take screenshot of the desired screen. There are two settings available in Preferences: take screenshot after a countdown of 3 seconds, and capture mouse pointer.
Reduce blue light
Night mode does have a new setting to reduce blue light emitted by your monitor, which is known as a potent suppressor of melatonin.
Improved Picture in Picture
Picture in Picture (PiP) is a cool feature to show a Mac OS X screen in another screen. PiP windows can now be freely resized, without any quality loss. We’ve also added two new user settings to define window opacity and stream quality (up to 60 fps).
Other new features
A Test Card can be displayed on any screen to help you in monitor calibration.
You can show resolution aspect ratio in main list.
Full changelog is available here.
Displays can be purchased on the Mac App Store for 5.99$.
