Focus block distracting websites banner

In a world of push notifications and customized message tones, blocking out distractions can seem downright impossible. We socialize and entertain ourselves on the same computers we work on, and the inevitable category bleed means interruptions a’plenty stand between you and the task at hand.

For the endless procrastinators and distraction addicts, Focus is a lifesaver Mac menu-bar utility which helps keep your work environment productive by blocking social media time-suckers and delivering motivating quotes. For a limited time, you can take 50% off the retail price for Focus.

Focus is a new utility for Mac users that makes it simple and easy. Turn off your mail, socials and other distractions with the click of a button, and instantly get in the zone with a global hotkey to pull you out of any app or program taking you away from getting stuff done. Focus sits in the menubar and runs in the background. Tell it the sites you want to avoid, and when you try to visit, it’ll display a motivational quote to encourage you to get back to work.

Activation is just a click away, with Focus utilizing OS X’s built-in automatic proxy configuration to work. It doesn’t communicate with the web on its own or read your traffic—it uses your Mac’s built-in tools to keep you on task.

Get serious about your productivity with Focus for just $9.99.
