Simple

Minus.app is a forever-free productivity application dedicated to helping people do their best work. The software eliminates digital distractions and provides essential tools for getting things done. Minus.app replaces numerous productivity apps, scripts, hacks, and workarounds into a single, supported solution.

Truly Private

Minus.app is a notarized, native macOS application with privacy built-in. It works locally on your machine and does not send your data to the cloud. Minus.app does not monitor or track your tasks or settings. Minus is not an electron app.

Distraction-Free

Minus.app is serious about eliminating all of the distractions that get in your way. Turn on "Desktop Environments" to instantly declutter your workspace and tune your desktop experience for greater concentration.

Single Tasking

Minus.app gives you a minimal UI companion named Task Bar that helps you focus on one thing at a time. It floats on your desktop in the perfect spot and displays the top task from your favorite todo manager. Task Bar helps you remember what you're working on as you switch around the Internet and desktop apps.

Focus Mode

Minus.app unlocks special task focusing powers within OmniFocus Pro, Things.app, and other todo managers. Simply drag your task onto the Minus.app icon to experience a deeper level of focus mode. Minus.app will also launch a smart timer if your original task has a time duration estimate. ⏱ ✅ 🤯

Scroll-Less

Minus.app helps you regain attention lost from time-consuming websites, apps, and media players. Unlike harsh 'website-only blockers' that require extra browser plugins, Minus.app instead works conveniently at the OS level with all browsers.

Superkey

Minus.app has a "Superkey" which helps build productive habits and better outcome-based impulses. Tap once for focus. Tap again to reveal important work. Need to think for a minute? ..use Superkey.

Status Upgrade

Minus.app gives your Luxafor status lights extra superpowers. No more manual toggling. Minus.app can detect automatically when you are focusing on work or whether you have drifted off. Get your entire team in the game with the Distraction Warnings feature.

Siren

Minus.app can help you stay focused right up to the last minute with the Fullscreen Calendar Notifications. Sometimes native notifications are disabled or are just not enough to grab you. When it's meeting time, Minus.app will interrupt your work with the link to your next meeting. Zoom you later alligator.

Quick

Using "Quick Actions", conveniently assign a keyboard shortcut to your favorite Minus.app feature. You can also access Quick Actions from the main application menu. Speed up your work-world with Minus.
