I use this for watching longish videos that are embedded in web pages. Yes, Flash players usually provide a way to make the video full screen, but that often makes the video look terrible, and sometimes it's just "too much". With many of the videos I watch (e.g. on ted.com), the audio is much more important anyway. There's nothing "devious" about it.

Gabriele, the publisher has been making a lot of useful, well-known apps like Send To Toys for eons now-- just on that alone this app merits a serious look.

Complimenti, ottima app!

ninjeratu,

I think you do not understand this feature, so before you comment about "hilarious" thing, you should better think twice.

I personnaly have an e-mail notification system that show up a scroller with new incoming mails that always appear over the mediaplayer at top of the screen, I also have some other news notifier that show up balloons bottom of screen.

I regularly forget to quit them for not being disturbed when watching movies.

I was about to make my own screen hidding tool but may be this one is enought for me.

Alt-Enter?
The "watching videos on your computer without being distracted by other programs" as the primary function is just hilarious. Even mplayer2 can show movies full screen. And of course that's not the purpose.
I can see several uses for this program, all of them malicious and devious. Showing Word when mommy enters the room while surfing for porn is now just a keypress away.

This program borders on the most completely useless software written. Ever.
I still give it 3 because kids living at home with 0 computer skills and lots of stuff to hide on screen will probably find it very useful.

This is a really handy utility, I can surf the internet whilst talking to friends and won't have to worry about others seeing what I'm talking about.

Good thing aswell that its free. 5/5
