Shadow Apple TV App
After a lot of feedback from the community, we have developed our Apple TV app! Currently, it is in a closed alpha, which is the very first phase of testing. If you want to be one of the first to try it and give us feedback, please fill out the form below. We’ll send you an invite via Apple’s TestFlight app, allows testers to install pre-released apps.
The new unified client
The unified client is now available in BETA on Windows, Mac and Linux.
But, what is the unified client?
It's a brand new Shadow application, redesigned and based on the same code base. This will allow you to have a more stable Shadow, with a similar experience and features on all platforms.
With such a huge change, a few hiccups are to be expected and we are counting on you to give us your feedback on the relevant channels. This will allow us to fine-tune the new unified client to create the best possible Shadow experience.
If you have any problems with this new beta version, don't hesitate to go back to the stable version.
Here are the notable changes:
New shortcuts WIN + ALT on Windows or Option + Command on macOS
- + F: fullscreen mode
- + M: change the mouse mode
- + Q: quit the app
- We also have an Easter egg ;)
Better notification system
- Notification when changing the mouse mode
- Notification when going fullscreen
- Notification when your Shadow is quitting
Updated Mouse modes
- By default your mouse will be set in Gamer Mode when going fullscreen
- When switching to a windowed view, your mouse will be set in Relative Mode
- We no longer have the "auto mode"
- Fix gamepad RB/LB and d-pad
- (macOS) vibration for gamepad
(Windows) fix a crash when session has accents and/or emojis
