If you enjoy Forehead, you will probably also like Vivid, which lets you double the brightness on your new MacBook Pro! Use code 'FOREHEAD' to get 10% off when you purchase a license for Vivid.
Apple announced the new MacBook Pro yesterday, and I can't wait to receive mine next week. I saw some people complain about the notch (I like it but tastes differ), so I made a little utility that makes the menu bar black so the Notch fades away in the background.
The app takes your wallpaper and modifies it to add a black bar at the top. It also allows you to round the corners of your screen if you're into that look!
As I spent waaaayyy too much money on my new MacBook yesterday, I left the option open to pay for the app, but I will post the source code here tomorrow as well so you can compile it yourself if you want. (2:30 AM right now and I spent the last hour fixing a code signing issue, thanks Josh!)
- Switch between your default wallpaper and a notchless one
- Round the corners of your entire screen (similar to the rounded top corners on the new Macs)
