Distraction Dimmer™ for Mac

Control Any Computer from Your Mac or iOS Device with Screens [Sponsor]

Screens by Edovia makes it easy to control any computer from a Mac or iOS device no matter where you are in the world. Whether you left an important file on your home computer that you need while you’re at work, or have a relative thousands of miles away who needs tech support, Edovia’s Screens app for Mac and iOS has you covered.

Screens is as secure, fast, and reliable as it is easy to set up and use. Not only is the connection to your remote computer secured end-to-end, but Screens includes Curtain Mode, which obscures the screen of your remote computer so no one walking by it while you’re connected can see what’s on your screen. Screens can also handle multiple displays attached to your remote computer, showing them all at once or just the ones you choose to view. If you provide tech support for friends and family, Screens makes that process simpler too by offering a free download that anyone you are helping can use so you can take control of their computer as you troubleshoot their problems.

Edovia has a great limited-time deal for MacStories readers. Use the coupon code MACSTORIES at checkout to save 20% off on the macOS version of Screens. You can also go to to have the coupon code automatically applied to your purchase.
