Obtract helps you and your team stay focused by forcing you to complete maze puzzles before accessing common online distractions. The Mac app keeps track of your production and distraction levels, allowing you to compete with teammates to see who can stay the most focused. A pop-up monitor window alerts you when you’re becoming distracted, then hides away when you’re more productive. With an infographic display showing how a team’s computer time is spent, Obtract either takes micromanaging to a new level, or uses the power of transparency and competition to break out of the grip of Facebook addiction that can cripple the knowledge worker.
