- Definitely Noisli is the app that save me from all the distractions by a easy ambient sound mix & match. As weird as it might sound I use rain, fire & airplane propellers. Great sound combo! They have web, chrome add-on, iOS and Android version.
When I first found this through Chrome extensions store, I did not expect Noisli to have such a big impact on my focus and productivity. From now on, I take it with me to every office I move and every computer I use. Noisli is a must-have for an open office and helps you stay sane even when the world around is crushing down.
Ambient noise increases productivity! What better way to supercharge your day.
This has been a standard app on my machine. It is one of those utilities that does its work day in and day out making my experience a much more pleasant one. I have wrestled from time to time with how strong to set the opaqueness of my Haze in order to give me a good workspace. I have also not toyed much with changing the color of the haze, but expect this could make for a fresh workspace, if needed.
There are several free competitors: Doodim, Hocus Focus, Backdrop, and Isolator, DeskCover.
Copypast - the author took the idea from Izolator or from other free alternatives that appeared earlier and implemented HazeOver
- Martin Boeddeker made this productFindFocus is the only app that supports multiple profiles running at the same time & and different unlocking modes. (e.g. you can unlock your email while Facebook & PH stay blocked) I am the creator of FindFocus and build the app for exactly the purpose of getting into flow and creating deep work habits. I tried all other apps but was always unsatisfied with their limitations & therefore decided to create my own app.
- Peter Hartree made this productI made a Chrome extension called Inbox When Ready to help people protect their focus and cultivate a better email workflow. The extension hides your inbox by default so you can compose messages without getting distracted. It also has some features to help you break the habit of compulsively checking your inbox.
