Today, we’re pleased to release a new version 2.1.13 of our uninstaller TrashMe for Mac OS X. The update is available on the Mac App Store and is recommended for everyone as it fixes a crash occurring on some configuration when listing apps. This version also improves performance and overall stability of the app. We’re tracking every bug reported by user, so don’t hesitate to contact us if you noticed an issue.
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.

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.
Today, we’re very pleased to announce the release of our new app “Displays” for Mac OSX. Displays is a toolbox to manage your monitors: you can easily set any resolution for your main or secondary monitor, even those usually hidden in OSX. Every resolution can be customized with your own label. Displays supports many customizable keyboard shortcuts, notifications, screen rotation and even shows information about all your monitors (serial number, graphic card in use…).
But what makes Displays different is other very useful features:
– Enable night mode to rest your eyes (switch to OSX Dark mode, lower screen brightness…)
– Use a virtual mouse pointer highlighter for your presentations
– Show another display with ‘Picture-in-Picture’ mode
We’ve started to develop our best-seller TrashMe in 2010. Since then, we’ve drastically improved the algorithm to be as accurate as possible when searching for related files to delete. Because our customers don’t want to remove critical files from their system. Because our customers want to rely on an accurate search engine.
Some uninstallers are not so accurate. For example, we compared TrashMe to iTrash when uninstalling CloudApp application (see picture below). At first glance, iTrash gives us more results: 10 files instead of 5 files for TrashMe. But look at the results: even with the “Expert mode” disabled, iTrash is inaccurate, listing some critical files used for Apple iCloud settings. 5 files among the 10 files founds are completely wrong.
We’ve tried uninstalling other applications and found similar issue: when uninstalling Adobe Illustrator, TrashMe is finding 5 related files where iTrash is finding 34 files offering us to remove all Adobe settings (Photoshop, Acrobat…) !
So, be careful, always choose an uninstaller with high accuracy.
TrahsMe is only 7.99 US$, available on the Mac App Store.
One month ago, Apple unveiled a new model of Macbook Pro with Retina display. Default resolution on the Macbook Pro Retina is 1440×960 but LCD panel has an actual resolution of 2880×1800. This is quite revolutionary as most users will not see any pixels on this sort of display panel, as for latest iPhone and iPad.
However, most applications need to be optimized for this new sort of display, otherwise some GUI elements may appear pixelated or blurry. We’ve started to optimize our apps to support this new Retina technology. Expect new releases in a few weeks.
