How to Increase Productivity on Mac with HazeOver?

  • Help yourself focus on one thing at a time. Automagically.
  • Easily see which window has keyboard focus.
    No more typing in a wrong window because the contrast is low.

  • Spend less time managing windows. The clutter will no longer bother you.
    No need to minimize, close or hide windows for your workspace to be neat.

  • Got a bigger display? Then going full screen is not an option for you.
    HazeOver prevents getting overwhelmed with too many windows.
  • Multiple monitors? This app will let you know which screen is focused or highlight a window on each monitor.

  • Power up macOS Dark Mode and reduce background glare.
  • Working at night? Reduce interface brightness without sacrificing legibility or color accuracy of the front window.

Heavy multi-tasking kills your concentration. All those tweets, emails, chat messages and lolcats 😼 staring back at you from the background. They strive for your attention. And you only have that much of it.

Don’t let yourself drown in scores of open windows. Hiding, switching, looking for the right one, more hiding, more switching. Calm down, breathe in, breathe out, launch HazeOver and finally concentrate on what you’ve been up to.

HazeOver automatically highlights an active window or app when you switch windows. The less important things gently fade away in the background, helping increase your productivity.

Set the hazing intensity and speed to your liking. Be it a soft dimming, an undemanding hint to focus on your workflow. Or a powerful dark background for outright dedication to your current task.

  • Desktop is automatically revealed when used.
  • Toggle the shade with a keyboard shortcut or adjust intensity with a gesture.
  • Keep separate dimming settings for Dark and Light mode.
  • Dragging stuff between apps? Tap “fn” key and HazeOver will gracefully fade out.
  • Control HazeOver state and settings with Shortcuts app or AppleScript.

Excelente y sencilla

Esta App es justo lo que andaba buscando para evitar distracciones, pues simplemente resalta lo que estas haciendo y obscurece todo lo demás, tanto como quieras. Con esto te centras en lo que haces y tu vista “no se va” hacia otras ventanas que tengas abiertas. La recomiendo!

Fa el que promet!… Molt útil per millorar la productivitat davant de la pantalla ...

Trobo que és una aplicació molt útil, simple i que ajudará a que millori la meva/teva productivitat davant de la pantalla pel fet de que ajuda a concentrar l’atenció davant de la finestra de l’aplicació amb la que estiguis treballant enfosquint tota la resta de pantalla, Crec que el seu preu és una mica elevat donat que només fa el que fa (enfosquir la pantalla darrera de la finestra de l’aplicació activa) però ho fa be, Crec que aquesta funcionalitat hauria d’estar inclosa “de sèrie” en MacOS (potser en Mission Control), Funciona perfectament en un MacBook Pro Retina de 15” con Yosemite 10.10.5, De moment, molt satisfet amb la compra, Espero que aquest comentari et sigui d’utilitat,

A permanent addition to my desktop

This program has redefined what I view as “comfortable” on my desktop, and it has become a permanent resident on my status bar. I rarely disable it, but love the fact that I can quickly and easily do so using the taskbar icon. It does exactly what it says. Five stars.

Better is use than theory

You don’t know how nice this is until you use it. It really does make concentrating on the given window easier; and yes, you always know what window you’re on. Glad I got this, highly recommend it.
