Camouflage overview

Camouflage is a quick and effective way to hide Desktop clutter. Do you have way too many items on your desktop? Do you hate cleaning up that mess? Camouflage is the right utility for you. It hides all the icons and leaves nothing but the pure wallpaper

Key Features:
  • perfect system-integration: change your wallpaper and Camouflage will show the change instantly.
  • works with multiple monitors: attach new monitors and the icons will instantly be hidden.
  • drag-and-drop: drag files on the desktop and they will be copied onto your real desktop.
  • Finder integration: click the desktop and Finder will be activated and opens or selects a separate desktop window. (You can disable this with the Popup Desktop option of the menu. To still open a window, press the option-key while clicking the desktop)
  • ability to show and hide the icons (available in status item menu)
  • works with desktop managers
  • ability to 'click through' Camouflage to get the normal Desktop-Context menu (Use with caution, you may select a file and don't notice it. You may only want to use that feature if you are using FinderPop)

What’s new in version 5.0

Version 5.0:
  • Added static/dynamic wallpaper behaviour that prevents the icons from peeking through, when switching spaces (only works when the same wallpaper is used for all spaces)
  • Darkmode support
  • Big Sur support
  • M1 support
  • Dynamic desktops support
  • Retina support for status item
  • Improved display of wallpaper

I love the app as it really allows one to avoid distraction from what's on the desktop while working. It also helps preserving the screen by not burning in those icons that are staying in the same position for ever.The only problem I had since upgrading to Mavericks (and now Yosemite) was that right clicking on the hidden desktop was not bringing the FinderPop menu anymore. That's has been fixed so thanks a lot for providing an upgrade to that great little app.

Is there a way to get this app for free? Or maybe for 99¢ or $1.99?

After using this app for years, today I am shutting it off. In Mavericks (OS 9) with Mission Control the desk icons are continually disappearing.
