[prMac.com] Warsaw, Poland - Macoscope announces the release of Focusbar 1.0 for Mac. The first rule of productivity is to take one thing at a time. And when you finally manage to pick this one thing and start to work on it, the toughest part is to stay uninterrupted. The temptation to check Facebook, email or the website your friend told you about may be overwhelming and totally ruin your workflow. That's why Focusbar came into being.
The way this app works is very simple. You just press "Start activity", type your task and press enter. Focusbar's window will show up on your screen from time to time, reminding you that it is time to work on what you have planned. And to protect you from distracting yourself, it will show up every time you switch to another window (in case the temptation of checking Facebook won) - this simple remainder will quickly put you back on a track.
The effects of using such a simple tool are really surprising - when you focus on just one item, you accomplish it much faster than you would have if you'd allowed yourself to be distracted or tried to multi-task. It's really amazing how fast you can get something done if you focus. With Focusbar, of course.
* Mac OS X 10.6.6 or later
* 0.9 MB
Pricing and Availability:
Focusbar 1.0 is only $0.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the Mac App Store in the Productivity category.
