    I cant seem to find an app for this...

    Some apps, like tweetie for example have a global show/hide shortcut. I want to set it for some of my other apps that do not have this feature built in, is there an app for that?

    Thanks but this is not what I am looking for. What I am looking for is a program that will allow you to invoke a system wide show/hide for a specific program. Notional Velocity has this for example, if I hit control space bar, in any app, NV auto grabs focus and doing it again auto hides...

    Is there anything like this?

    For OSX, not iOS, this is the Mac app and Mac app store section...

    Would Flying Windows do the trick? It says you can "exclude applications in single application mode" or "enable or disable applications"

    This is close but not quite. Looking for a hide, unhide for that you set on a global level and can be access regardless of what current app has focus.

    Is there a demo available? I can't find one on their website.

    Update to the newest version of OSX, then open up the app store and do a search for it. Only way to get it that I am aware of.

    Yeah I know that, but I just want to try it out. You have to buy to install it via the App Store.

    No trials in the appstore, but you probably already knew that. Been extremely useful thus far, works great and has a great UI for the setup.

    Yes that's why I was looking for a trial elsewhere.

    Or perhaps a combination of Command + Tab, then H while still holding Command to keep app switcher open
