[prMac.com] De Pere, Wisconsin - Despite recent news regarding spying and surveillance, large numbers of users still regularly check social media sites, watch videos, or play games in the workplace. Boss Blocker 1.0 extends a computer's capabilities by performing multiple actions simultaneously with a customizable keyboard shortcut. Running hidden in the background, Boss Blocker takes multitasking to the next level. When triggered, Boss Blocker hides open app windows, mutes the system sound volume, and pauses active media players.
In addition to the system control it offers, Boss Blocker can display one of three "productivity" windows or activate the screen saver. When triggered a second time, the app returns the system to its previous state, revealing hidden windows, restoring the sound volume, and starting media players exactly where they left off. Whether used at work or at home, Boss Blocker provides fine-grained system controls for users who value privacy when it is needed most. Boss Blocker supports a wide variety of popular media players, and includes the following functionality:
* Runs hidden in the background, with optional menu bar icon access
* Hides app windows, mutes audio, and pauses media players with one customizable keyboard shortcut
* Displays one of three "productivity" windows or activates the screen saver when triggered
* Returns to the previously used app, restores the sound volume level, and starts media player where it left off when triggered a second time
