Work better at night with our app Displays

Nowadays, we’re spending most of our evenings in darkness, in front of an electronic device, a computer, a smartphone or a television. Researchers have found that light emitted by those electronics could be harmful to your health. As stated on this article by Harvard Medical School:

Light at night is part of the reason so many people don’t get enough sleep. While light of any kind can suppress the secretion of melatonin, blue light at night does so more powerfully.

That’s why we developed a powerful night mode in our app Displays, to reduce unwanted effects of lights, when you’re working on your Mac at night. With our night mode, in one click you can:

  • Reduce the brightness of your screen
  • Reduce the level of blue light emitted by your screen
  • Switch macOS to dark mode
  • Set another wallpaper
  • Enable grayscale mode

Most of the time, when you’re using an external monitor, brightness cannot be changed in macOS. But this is not an issue for Displays because we’re simulating screen dimming.

In latest version 1.5, we also introduced scheduling. Night mode can automatically be enabled either in a user-defined period of time or based on sunset / sunrise of where you’re living. So you don’t even need to remember to enable the night mode, even if manual mode is still working when scheduling is on.

Don’t wait and try Displays for free.

TrashMe 2.1.16 available on our webstore

We’re releasing a new version of TrashMe, our uninstaller and cleaning tool for macOS. This new version 2.1.16 is recommended for everybody as we fixed some small annoying bugs. TrashMe now speaks Brazilian Portuguese too, thanks to Paulo Neto.

Starting today, TrashMe is available for direct purchase on our webstore, in addition to the Mac App Store version. The main difference is that the Mac Store version is a bit more limited as it requires installation of our free addon whereas the version available for direct purchase is fully functional even with apps requiring admin password to get uninstalled.

To celebrate the launch of TrashMe on our webstore, we offer a 20% discount with the coupon code TRASHME20. Hurry up, it’s only for a few days!
