[prMac.com] Gehofen, Germany - Briksoftware today is pleased to announce Camouflage 2.2.1 for Mac OS X, an update to their desktop organization system that allows users to easily hide and retrieve desktop icons. Sitting in the menu bar or the dock, Camouflage is easily accessible and can be quickly used to hide desktop icons. For extra speedy access, users can configure a HotKey to show and hide icons, instantly. The update restores compatibility with Mission Control and removes the flicker of the icons when the Finder is activated.
Having a cluttered desktop can be a problematic experience. Often, when users share their desktop for a presentation or a screen share, they wish to have an uncluttered desktop or keep some icons out of view, but do not have the time to remove them. Camouflage solves this issue by providing a quick and easy way to hide desktop icons from prying eyes. Perfect for teachers, students, business people, or anyone who wants to keep the items on their desktop private, users simply hide icons away with Camouflage and access them when needed.
* Instantly hide or un-hide desktop icons
* Perfect system-integration: change wallpaper and Camouflage will show the change instantly
* Works with multiple monitors: attach new monitors and the icons will instantly be hidden
* Compatible with Spaces
* Support for Path Finder
* Supports OS X 10.6 - 10.8
Camouflage can be easily accessed via the desktop menu bar. Simply click the Camouflage icon and select Hide Icons. All document icons, files, folders, external drives, and other items on the desktop will be hidden from view. The desktop retains the user-selected wallpaper as well as all computer functionality. When users would like to make the desktop items visible again, they select Show Icons from Camouflage in the menu bar. All desktop icons instantly reappear.
While Camouflage is designed to hide the clutter on a desktop, it also provides a new workflow to help in accessing files on the desktop. By double-clicking the desktop, a Finder window appears, showing all of the desktop files hidden or visible. The user may put the Finder Window in List View to provide an easy and uncluttered look at all the current desktop files.
Camouflage provides the ability to set the application to the user's preferences. Users may customize the Finder Window access, allowing them to choose to open with a single or double click. Users may also create a HotKey to instantly hide or unhide icons. In addition, Camouflage allows the user utilize their current wallpaper or to select a custom wallpaper that will be displayed whenever desktop icons are hidden, providing extra security from an unwanted audience.
"Clear your desktop instantly," stated Briksoftware's Karsten Kusche. "Camouflage lets you decide what people see on you screen."
* Macintosh OS X 10.6.6 or later
