To be fully buzzword compliant these days you have to be using apps on your Mac which take full advantage of the new fullscreen mode, or use a word processor to write– one that’s distraction free. Otherwise, you’re just not getting the most out of your Mac. Because what we need are Mac utilities and apps and add-ons that clutter up the screen so we need a utility that hides what’s visible.
Enter Hocus Focus which performs a little hocus pocus and makes most of the offending visual clutter disappear with little more than a click to the Menubar.
That sounds easy enough but Hocus Focus has some secrets hiding in the background. Profiles let you change which windows are hidden by Hocus Focus based upon which apps you’re using. Apps can be hidden after a period of time, or when you move on to use a different app.
Regardless of how or when you use Hocus Focus, you get a clean, uncluttered, distraction free screen to do your work.
What I really like is Hocus Focus’ ability to hide apps that are not used after a period of time. That gets them out of the way, and provides for a more distraction free environment– until you switch back again.
This is one of those very useful Mac utilities you’d like to see incorporated into OS X, but it’s
free donationware so you get the benefit.
