In this review we’ll look at purchasing, installing and using HazeOver on your Mac and see whether it really does do this one job really well. Haze Filter To obtain HazeOver, go to the Mac App Store and type “hazeover” or. After purchasing the app for $3.99, it is installed in your Applications folder directly. Once the software is installed, you run it in the usual way. It will stay residently parked in the menu bar until you quit.

The preferences pane pops up on the first start, and you get to choose the level of dimming and if you want it in the menu bar and at the start at login. Also, there is a button to allow the app in the security permissions so it doesn’t ask you every time if it’s okay for the app to mess with your screen settings. Once you are done messing with the settings, you can close the Preferences and get started. As you do so, a little alert will pop up to remind you that the app will stay running in the menu bar.
Pulling Focus There are no controls to speak of apart from in the preferences (and the menu bar menu) to allow you to adjust the darkness of the dim. In practice, you need far less than you would assume, so go with the defaults at first and tune it down to taste. It’s a deceptively simple thing, but it works. Basically what happens when the software is in play is that any window you are working on looks as normal. Anything in the background is dimmed out. Sounds simple when you say it like that, doesn’t it?
In fact, the difference, perceptually speaking, is huge, and you really do pay less attention to what’s going on behind the apps you are working on. Anything that pops up is less clear and so much easier to ignore unless you are the sort of person who is biochemically obsessed with knowing everything that’s going on. If you actually want to ignore everything else other than your chosen task, HazeOver really does help. You might get slightly irritated by the way focus changes, but they’ve done a pretty good job of minimizing any annoying scene changes.
In the test period, everything worked as it should, and there were no weird transitions between windows or views. Overall it was really solid.
In this way, always you have at hand wherever you are. OneSafe management application is a super secure password that lets you store all your confidential data, including the documents and images that must remain secret, in one place with all the guarantees of security. On 1Password, files are saved as attachments, so you’ll need to create a note, software account, or login item and attach the files to them. Creating new oneSafe categories is also flexible, wherein you can add an icon, name, description, and select if it’s to be saved locally or on iCloud. On the Mac version of oneSafe, you can simply drag and drop files into one of the application’s folders. All versions of the app include a large assortment of templates that you can use for inputting data. In my review of oneSafe for Mac, I pointed out how the app lacks the ability to autofill and login usernames and passwords for web accounts. I then discovered that this is an iOS-only feature and it works with a built-in browser where you can autofill and login into your online account.
Fade to Black HazeOver is a paid app, but that shouldn’t upset you. It’s easy to get hypnotized by free stuff and the prevailing going rate of apps in the store and start thinking that paying more than a few cents for an app is outrageous overpricing, but let’s be real. Software, good software you actually use, is made by real people who need to eat.
And the price in this case is reasonable. With that out of the way, the price is right because this is a piece of software you will actually use. Frankly it’s something that should be an option in the OS anyway, and it’s possible in the future it might be. Until then this is a cheap and user-friendly option.
In the interest of full disclosure, we should mention that although our copy of HazeOver was provided free by the manufacturer, this in no way affects our honest evaluation of the software, and the developers were happy for us to review this product on that basis in our own words. Of course if you have any thoughts about work focus and methods to enhance your focus and productivity during work hours, let us know in the comments below.

+ + + How to Use Dark Mode in macOS Mojave Posted on September 28th, 2018 by Dark mode is one of the most visible new features in macOS Mojave, and is the most radical change to the interface of Apple's operating systems since the advent of Mac OS X in 2001. This setting allows you turn most of what you see into a sort of negative view: instead of black text on a white or gray background, you see gray text on a black (actually, dark gray in most places) background. Windows, menus, toolbars - everything shifts (though there are some elements that don't change; see below). Dark mode is not for everyone.
Reading white text on a dark background can be difficult for many people, notably those with astigmatism. But some people love working like this; it's a lot more restrained than the standard interface; there is less light to assail you. It is especially good for working late at night which is probably why many developers tend to favor this mode. There were already some Apple apps that had a dark mode interface either fully or in certain areas. The Photos app has a light interface when you browse your photos, but when you switch to edit mode it's dark. This prevents distractions by the light around your photos when editing them.
