You can't get Shade from the links above, but it is in the Mac App Store, still for free.

Need a way to get this to work in all spaces rather than just the one you activated it in.

Good stuff, simple, works well.

Couple of suggestions : add a "quit" option, talk to "spaces" and look at memory leak.

Love the core-animation effect when hiding the clutter on my desktop. One problem though, within 5 minutes after launching Shade was already using 310mb of ram. That's a wee bit too much for my liking. Keep ram-use under 20mb and you've got a winner here.

What a fabulous idea. Sweeping the mess under the carpet so the room looks clean!
I think this is really novel and a brilliant way to hide distractions on one's desktop.
A generous thank you to the developer.
