    Pros: 

    Free

    Cons: 

    Copycat

    Not shy about copying many elements of HazeOver app. I’m not talking about general idea: it’s down to menu structure, the same keyboard shortcut, some UI layout and even text along with app description phrases.

    Since the author explicitly promotes this app as a better alternative for HazeOver, do yourself a favor and try a free trial of the original app.

    So frustrating and sad.

    Maxim Ananov has used this product for one day.

@akdm_ Unfortunately no :( You can certainly introduce, just for the sake of the fan?

@akdm_ I can do it just for the sake of a joke ... I'm not sure that it's someone you need

@gerasim_sergey This is not needed at all but I liked it. :)

This is pretty neat, as product designers work on more addictive and distracting tech it's always good to find ways to get around it and stay focused. @gerasim_sergey with so many paid alternatives why offer your app for free?

@abadesi I developed DeskCover when I tried new technologies (compatible with the Apple App Store Sandbox) for my UnDistracted application, which can not be distributed through the App Store. First I sold DeskCover to the App Store, but now I decided to distribute it for free, without ads and purchases in the app. I'm wondering whether a free application can be successful, since the competition in the free Top App Store is very large (much more than among the paid ones). I will be grateful for the criticism and advice on how to continue to be with this application. Sorry for my English

@abadesi sorry, it's probably right to say, if there are so many paid alternatives, then this is the only good step, if users do not want to use a free application, then they do not buy paid.
