Think – limited distraction workspace for your Mac

Feb 16, 2007 - 2 Comments


Ok, I admit, I’m easily distracted while on my Mac. I’ll intend to do something productive, but then my favorite webpage will refresh or an instant message will pop up and I’ll get sidetracked reading an article or chatting. It happens to the best of us.

If you are worried about desktop distractions, you can thank Freeverse software for their app called Think, which allows you to select a specific application and then forces a darkened screen over the background tasks.

Productivity saver? Maybe. Cool app? Yup.

Think has a task manager of sorts which allows you to select the app to be highlighted, while the rest remain dimmed in the background.

The effect is very similar to that of Expose if you have only one window open, as you can see in our screenshots below. Think is a universal binary, requiring 10.4.3 or above. You can get it from the Developer home if interested.

Update: “Think” appears to be abandoned and no longer available, and Freeverse software apparently no longer exists…. But you can get a similar feature on the Mac natively by using Single Application Mode in Mac OS.
