Here we have a list of seven apps selected and loved by the Product Hunt community. All apps are simple and minimalistic. Thus, allowing you to focus on your core tasks. Give them a try because they worth it.
- One Big Thing. This is a super simple app. Every day type one big thing you want to accomplish and focus on it. It is possible to add secondary tasks as well. Clean and simple UX. Option to change themes.
- Papier. A clever idea – open a tab in your chrome browser and start typing notes. It is automatically saved to chrome. Close the tab and open a new one, to get all your notes back.
- HazeOver. The application serves a very useful purpose – it hides all OS windows, except the active one. All of us know the open windows clutter and distraction, so this one is realy helpful to stay focused.
- Flowstate. More like a torture machine, the app might be useful to get some people working. The idea is that you open a writing session and set time for the session. Once the session begins, if you exit the program or stop typing for longer than 5 seconds, all you have written will be lost. Useful to keep you running on routine tasks.
- Escape. This is a simple tracking tool. It stores all your visits to websites, emails, social networks. Each day there is a report on how often your job was interrupted by distractions and how long time has been lapsed between those distractions.
- Go Fucking Work. A website blocker. You can choose a list of websites that distract you from working and block them for a certain period of time. Each time you try to visit a blocked site, the app redirects you to a page with text: “What the fuck? Go work.” or, “Remember work? Fucking do it.”
- Summize. Originally created for students. The application gets a snapshot of a book or article and then an algorithm creates a summary for the page. The app makes a summary of the page, concept analysis, keyword analysis. The algorithm is not perfect but it is worth trying it.
