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.
Do One Thing
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 applications and websites.
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. Block the bullshit.
When it's time for focus, Minus.app can play endless hours of lyric-free, work-optimized background music powered by Spotify. Use our standalone player, or put Work Music directly into your existing routines and automations. Minus.app is a deep-thinking, voice-free zone.
Extreme 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. ⏱ ✅ 🤯

Minus has Fullscreen Calendar Notifications which help you stay focused right up to the last minute. Sometimes native notifications are disabled or are just not enough to grab you.
