HI PH-ers! I made this app to increase my productivity. The first 100 downloaders can get Enso for free by using the discount code "producthunt". Let me know what you think and if you have any questions, please don't hold back :-)

@maarten Can't I just option-click on notifications icon to mute them?
Maarten WolzakMaker@maarten · Founder Udition
@_vojto Oh yes, you can! But personally, I tend to forget I turned them off. Then I run into them, days later. Missed opportunities, angry co-workers, etcetera. So the added value is in timing the notifications to turn back on. Hope it will be of use. And please let me know if you have any suggestions.

@maarten @_vojto What is the difference between Enso and the "Do not disturb" option on Mac OS ?

@edwardylanwhite @_vojto Timing the notifications to turn back on.

@maarten Sounds like adding some kind of Pomodoro functionality would make it more interesting. :) Good luck!

I would suggest you change the "Download" button on your site to "Buy Now" since that is the only option? A little shady... I might actually try this out but no trial version, no thanks. It would be nice for presentations etc but I already created a separate profile on my Mac for that.
Maarten WolzakMaker@maarten · Founder Udition
@deanbrady Absolutely right Dean! Very clumsy of me. Thanks for spotting that. But no, it's not a trial version.

Another option is just to show notifications, swipe down from the top and toggle DND.
Maarten WolzakMaker@maarten · Founder Udition
@joe_blau True! And then set a timer to turn it back on in 25/115 minutes. :wink:

Instant download for me. Goes great with my Slack/Skype notification muter. http://jmitch.com/serenity
Maarten WolzakMaker@maarten · Founder Udition
@itsthisjustin looks awesome! We should do some inter-app notifying to get them into sync

@maarten Dude absolutely! Shoot me an email. justin@sofriend.ly
Fondly remembering Aza Raskin's product of the same name (and logo), almost ten years ago: http://lifehacker.com/232582/is-... I like this new Enso, too!
Maarten WolzakMaker@maarten · Founder Udition
@christopher_fahey nice reference! I did work on Windows back then :-) but never heard of it. Honest. The name, and the logo, of course come from the hand drawn circle in Zen Bhuddism "to express a moment when the mind is free to let the body create" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/En... I made it to make my mind more free, less distracted. So that was a bit of a no-brainer.
