What is Shady?

Shady puts a shade over your screen to help soothe your tired or dazzled eyes. You can use it to reduce your Mac's brightness far below the usual minimum, without any risk of damage to your screen.

Shady lets you pull a virtual shade over your screen (or screens, if you have more than one - Shady covers them all), dimming the display to a more comfortable level.

The shade will ignore your mouse clicks, naturally, so you can continue to use your Mac as usual.

Actually, you can put your screen up full and use shady. This way you can dim the display without increasing flicker which turning the display's brightness down does. My only complaint is it doesn't affect apps that are floating on top.
