Hocus Focus takes care of clearing away window clutter in the background as you work. By hiding the applications you're not using, it helps keep you distraction free and focused on the stuff that matters.
Set applications to be hidden after a certain period of time, have them hide as soon as you move onto something else, or disable hiding entirely. Hocus Focus lets you work the way you want to.
Whether you're doing some image editing or updating a website, you can setup powerful profiles to change Hocus Focus' window hiding behaviour based on the work you're doing.
Sure thing! Just drag the timeout slider all the way to zero. The application will then appear under the "Disabled" heading in the application list view.
The decision to release Hocus Focus outside of the Mac App Store was a difficult one. But ultimately it allows me to release updates faster, and to provide features and functionality without worrying about App Store rejections and rule violations.
It sure is! Houdini was originally released back in 2011 and was starting to look a little long in the tooth. Hocus Focus is a ground-up rewrite that features a beautiful new Yosemite-ready UI.
Donate to support future development
Great software has the power to make our lives better. But great software also takes a great deal of time to develop and support, which is why I ask that if you find Hocus Focus useful you consider making a donation to support future development. Failing that, it'd mean the world to me if you could give it a mention on Twitter.
