I bought a license for this when it wasn't free. Now I have the "free" version, except it doesn't allow me to hide more than 3 apps in "trial mode." Yet now there's no place to enter a serial number. And I cannot seem to connect to their site. What a rip.

I've used this since it was released, and it's great. It still works with OS 10.8.5, and maybe later, but I don't yet have a Mac that can run a later version of OS X.

I'm now running HideItControl on OS 10.11.4 (El Capitan), and it still works. There's a bug though that I've seen for some time: when you launch an app from the Dock, while you're in any app other than the Finder, OS X will switch to the Finder, launch the app, and leave the Finder as the frontmost app, with the app you launched visible behind any open Finder windows. So it can require two clicks of an app's icon in the Dock to bring it forward.

Always a hassle trying to deal with Derman registration schemes. Spirited Away provides a much better experience with much less trouble.

Spirited Away has been spirited away--it's gone.

Wonderful work! Simple to configure, hotkey to temporarily disable, dimming desktop mode... all very nice! I've just disabled Spaces and decided to use HideItControl in Single Application Mode instead. Great work!

This could be a very functional and useful program, but considering its price of $10, I choose to use SpiritedAway, which has all the same functions, other than the Hot Key, but is free. I have used SpiritedAway for many months without difficulty and it is Tiger Compatible. Feel free to make an informed decision.
