I’m not very good at focussing on just one thing and I have a few tricks that help me to concentrate on the task when my tiny brain cannot do it.
Quiet is an app with a simple idea that defocuses everything in the background leaving you to focus on the main window, like so :
Quiet works for me because I have a lot of screen space and often get distracted by unrelated stuff.
I’ve had this app for a long time before I found a way to make it work for me. I kept revisiting the app before it got integrated into my workflow. I just had the feeling that it could do something if I could just think about the problem the right way.
Quiet is available from the App Store and costs USD$2 / GBP£1.49.
