Black Friday & Cyber Monday 2023 Deals

I am using a Mac mini connecting to a LG ultra wide (38WK95-C) and 2x Dell Ultrasharp monitors (U2412M). Every time I want to adjust brightness and contrast, I have to fiddle with the menu in the monitors.

Then, come Display Buddy
This app sits in menu bar and can adjust the brightness and contrast via a slider. Not only that, there’s keyboard shortcut to adjust brightness too. And finally, there’s profile, so I can create a profile for reading and movies.

I was skeptical whether it will work with 3rd party displays such as Dell and LG. But because of this 20% Black Friday deal and their no-question-asked refund if it didn’t work, I bit the bullet.

I am happy to share that it works as advertised! This is probably the best purchase for me this year!

Edit: bonus feature - I can create keyboard shortcut to increase brightness for ONLY 2 (of my 3) monitors, leaving one to be controlled via menu bar. And the nice thing is that the image of the brightness icon that you see in a MacBook will appear in both monitors. So, Apple-like in design!

I’ve read the rather lengthy thread on Curio. I am tempted, but after looking at the video and reading the thread, I think it would add complexity and friction without a corresponding increase in productivity. That, of course, is only an impression. And, it doesn’t have a mobile version so that limits it useful to me. I do, however, like the pricing model.

Unclutter Apps:
Default Folder X
<7 more> – all half price


TG Pro (and several other apps from Tunnabelly) are on sale, with TG Pro being 75% off.
