Do you often find your desktop covered in files and folders that make it hard to find the things you need? If so, Camouflage may be for you.
Camouflage hides icons and leaves nothing but your base wallpaper. It's ideal for those who need to hide their desktop items in an instant or just need to clear their desktop. Camouflage works with multiple monitors and supports the dragging and dropping of files onto the Camouflage desktop as if they were being dragged onto your real desktop.
Camouflage is also integrated with Finder so you can search for items in Spotlight as normal. If you need to record a screencast on a clean desktop, just click on Camouflage to activate and your slate will be wiped clean. The only slight drawback is that although Camouflage now supports a hot-key to activate it, the developers don't recommend using it for stability reasons. Rather, it's better to double-click on your desktop to reveal it or access it from your Menu Bar.
Camouflage is a simple but effective idea that users with cluttered desktops will appreciate.
