Stop burning your eyes!

myPoint Shade is caring for your eyes' comfort.
If you work in a dark room or struggle with eye strain and headache, myPoint will dim your displays - this way it will care for your health and comfort.
You can set gray shade to mitigate bright and vivid colors, or white shade to view details in dark pictures. When you read and write, a greenish shade will relax your eyes.
myPoint doesn't fiddle with the monitor settings. It places translucent layers over your desktop and running applications. Thus it will dim monitors even more than the hardware limit.
myPoint Shade features:
  • Dim all monitors with common shade.
  • Additional per screen shade for up to eight monitors.
  • Shade includes level and color.
  • Change the shade level without leaving the active application - via hotkeys or from a menu in menu bar extras.
  • Dim other screens at 100% black except the mouse screen.
  • Eye care: the shade will fade in and fade out in a specified timeout.
  • Shade assistant will track active applications and will toggle the shade automatically depending on user preferences.
  • Full screen support.
  • Common myPoint panel for all settings.
  • All preferences are customizable - hotkeys, colors, levels, timeout.
  • Can start automatically when the user logs in.
  • Supports multiple users, screens and desktops.
  • myPoint is built on Apple's security paradigm sandboxing - reducing the threat of rogue code and malware.
  • When myPoint is running, no icon is shown in the Dock. The control is through a menu in menu bar extras.
  • Shade level is limited up to 90%.
  • myPoint Shade is designed to be a versatile tool. It has a lot of settings and includes additional shade tools: "Shade application assistant" and "Dim other screens".
