Boost your productivity with Hides!

Effortlessly clear your desktop in one quick keystroke to quickly hide sensitive information

Enable Single App Mode, to focus on the task at hand.
Single App Mode will hide all other open applications automatically, so you can focus on your work. Once enabled, Single App Mode will work like so:

Hides can quickly hide ALL open Applications, giving you a fresh, and clear work space.

You can easily configure Hides with Global Hotkeys, allowing you to effortlessly clear your desktop from all of your currently running apps, in one quick keystroke - or quickly enable Single App Mode for a distraction free work environment.

*Single App Mode (only one app is active on screen at a time)
*Hide all open Apps
*both options can be enabled via the menubar, or from a user defined key combination.


Release Notes:

Version 1.1

Hides - Great piece of software. With the 1.1 update Single Application Mode is now available and works whether the user opens an application from the dock or from the Applications or Utilities folders. This is a great improvement on Apple's implementation which only works if the dock is used. "Hides" implementation of Single Application Mode is smooth and quick. The nice thing about Single Application Mode is that the user gets to keep a clean working desktop yet it can be turned off by a quick trip to the menu bar if needed. Another quick trip to the menu bar turns it on again. Or, a hot key can be set up. This is the second piece of software I have purchased from Russell Gray, the first being Cookie, the best cookie manager out there. To top it off the support is among the best I've encountered. Keep up the great work.

Useful app - Create a distraction-free desktop/work environment to help you focus on your task; set keyboard short cuts to enable and disable the single-app mode or instantly hide the currently active app— it’s simple and fast, and has a small footprint. Highly recommended.
