Editors' Review


Basic but quite functional, Shade for Mac covers the desktop with the click of a button. The application performs well, operates easily, and offers a clean way to hide and reveal cluttered desktops.

Available for free via the App Store, the program installs easily into the Applications folder. After placing a small, but easily identifiable icon on the top menu bar, Shade for Mac brings up a drop-down, which briefly explains the functions. Users can click and drag any photo image to the small icon. Doing so sets this image as the cover. By default, a green image of vegetation is used. Clicking the icon drops the screen down over the desktop, but keeps the dock visible, just as it would be with a clean desktop. A second click quickly removes it, granting easy access to the desktop files. The application functions cleanly and integrates well into a user's desktop experience.

Shade for Mac solves the problem for those users who like to have access to certain files easily, but don't want the problems associated with a messy screen. This application supports Retina Display, as well.
