Completely ran my MBP with 16 GB of RAM out of memory within half an hour on El Capitan 10.11.6 (had gobble 8 GB to itself alone). This has only happened to me once or twice before in five years. Lost fifteen minutes quitting apps and finding out how to run kill -CONT -1 to get the show back on the road. This is not a productivity app but an anti-productivity app. I'd be wary of Undistracted and the window managers of this developer as well. If Deskcover has these kinds of memory issues, his other productivity applications are also a risky bet.

I mention the other apps as I was considering buying Undistracted now as I like its set of functionality.

I just now looked on the MAS, and it is definitely free. The $10 application is the Pro version, which includes additional features and is sold separately via the developer's website.

As David1 wrote in MAS is absolutely free, without ads and has all the features that are in the competitions, in addition, the version in MAS does not advertise the version of Pro (which also evolves) and soon I will make a big update since there really are problems

Thank you for such a nice tip, DeskCover uses new technologies (unlike UnDistracted) and initially there may be problems, but I'm actively working on the bugs and soon there will be a new fully updated version
But I do not advise you to buy any of the applications I have
