Concentrate for Mac1.2.2

21 July 2012

Eliminate distractions by blocking Web sites and apps.

What is Concentrate for Mac

Concentrate gives you a simple workflow solution: Fewer distractions, more productivity.

Concentrate helps you work and study more productively by eliminating distractions.

To start, create an activity (study, write, design, etc) and choose actions (described below) to run every time you concentrate. When ready, just click "concentrate." All your distractions will dissappear and a timer will appear to help you stay focused.

Actions that can be run include:

  • Launch Applications: Choose apps needed to complete your activity
  • Quit Applications: Quit any distracting or unnecessary apps
  • Open Websites: Open any sites needed for your current activity
  • Block Websites: Keep yourself from distracting sites like Twitter or Facebook
  • Open Documents: Open any pertinent documents in their default applications
  • Set Chat Status: Set your iChat, Adium or Skype status to away
  • Speak a Message: Set up spoken messages to alert you to stay on task
  • Play a Sound: Add a sound alert to notify you of progress along the way
  • Run Scripts: Run scripts to remove any unique distractions not already eliminated
  • Growl: Remind yourself to stay on track with Growl notifications

I want a Concentrate update for the newest MacOS, and am quite frustrated that it's not available. I loved the prior versions but the updates are overdue. PLEASE get with it! I'm rating the older version below-- with hope that the developers will resuscitate Concentrate.

I'm devastated. This was my productivity companion. This little app did all the right tricks for me to get me in a creative mood. I used it to block unwanted distractions, I used it to launch apps at one go, to get that inspiring background going, etc ... Now it's deceased. r.i.p. And there is no alternative. I tried a plethora of productivity apps, but none comes even close. Focus? yeah, blocking sites is nice and all, but they all do that and none of them does what concentrate does. Can't we just get concentrate back please, the working version. I'd pay up, I'd donate. 29$ for concentrate is a price I am willing to pay.

This just crashes for me and is pretty useless as you can just stop it when you want. I've also just discovered Focus (see steelie below) - http://www.heyfocus.com. It now blocks apps as well as websites. The developer is responsive and the app is under active development. Not as many options as Concentrate, but a very good alternative

I purchased this app while running Mavericks and it worked well, but not anymore. The app crashes 100% of the time when trying to use it to block websites on OS X Yosemite, the developer is unreachable, and the developer's webstore's domain is expired. This app is dead in the water. DO NOT download this app. Find an up-to-date alternative.

Ever since upgrading to Yosemite, Concentrate crashes every time I try to authenticate “Admin Privileges” to block domains. If I choose “Don’t block Domains” it launches just fine but then doesn’t do what I need it to do. :( Anyone else experiencing this have a solution?

Wow! I'm impressed. The authors are giving away a free license on the purchase link store.madebyrocket.com with the message: "Hi, until we're able to give Concentrate some needed love, 1.0 is free to use with the following information" What a nice gesture!

The system requirements say: REQUIREMENTS Intel/PPC, OS X 10.5 or later but version 1.2.2 is Intel only, according to the Get Info window on a PowerPC-based Mac, where the application will not run. The Developer's web site is quite sparse: there appears to be no way to download a legacy version that runs on a PPC Mac.

Concentrate crashes for me on OS X 10.6.8 at the stage of adding any action by dragging it to the activity area. At the drag there is a crash: Exception Type: EXC_BAD_ACCESS (SIGSEGV) Exception Codes: KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS at 0x0000000000000030 Crashed Thread: 0 It seems to me Concentrate isn't really compatible with OS X 10.6.8. What are your experiences under 10.6?
