Think: Let the cloud of helpful darkness fall upon your apps

oh, what a great idea: Avoid the myth of multitasking, concentrate on ONE thing at a time (pretty difficult, with multiple windows open and several sources of distraction always available).

The guys from Freeverse found a simple-yet-clever solution called think (oops - for Mac only). Just add a (graphical) curtain (called backdrop) to your screen - nice thing, very useable.

Here's a list of appropriate keyboard shortcuts:
  • Command+Option+Return will raise Think and show its dashboard
  • Commond+Control+Return will re-focus on the illuminated app
  • Command+Option+Tab will illuminate the frontmost app - sending others behind the curtain.
