These inexpensive gems have minimal features, and go full screen on your Mac to reduce visual clutter so you can focus on your writing.
Not everyone is wedded to a word processor all day long. What about the rest of your Mac apps? If concentration and focus are an objective then FocusMask is the way to get there. Think of this useful and inexpensive app as a distraction free utility that works with other apps on your Mac. What it does is mask everything else on the Mac’s screen except the app window you’re using at the time. Voila! More focus, better concentration on the visible task at hand.
Visual distractions elsewhere on the Mac’s screen can be faded away while you focus on a single app window. Background opacity is fully adjustable, and FocusMask works well on multiple monitors and with OS X’s Spaces. Getting FocusMask to work when and where you want is easy enough, too, thanks to customizable keyboard shortcuts.
This is a really nice application of the distraction free trend started in word processors a few years ago, but carried over to almost any app on your Mac. There’s just nothing about it that’s not to like, including the ridiculous price tag.
