Coffitivity – A virtual coffee shop that helps you increase your working productivity

In contrast to the accustomed view, working or studying in a quiet and clammed up space hampers the creativity and productivity of individuals. A study in the Journal of Consumer research suggests that ambient noises, an important environment variable affects creativity. This does not imply that one should work in a place which causes the maximum noise pollution as it is harmful to the ears. Our work-space is an important determinant in determining our level of ingenuity and productiveness. Coffitivity, brings to you a mixture of calmness and noise which helps you concentrate on your work better.

Coffee shops have proved to be the most compelling work places in terms of uniform noise, along with catering to the obsession of coffee lovers. With Coffitivity, you can bring the essence of a coffee house to your desktop or at home right when your own work place is  no longer comforting your needs. You just have to plug in your headphones, hit the player and Coffitivity will help you traverse to a virtual coffee shop. For better results, set the player volume at a level which is barely louder than Coffitivity.

Flowformer – A focus app to get one thing done (or not done) each day

Flowformer

You log on to the Internet to prepare for that important presentation at the office and decide to check FB and Twitter for five minutes before starting. The next thing you know, half your day is over! Or the day when you are fasting or dieting and you forgot that the yummy choco mousse in the fridge is forbidden. This could happen to any of us with the abundance of distraction in our daily lives. What would be perfect is someone, who could remind us of that important presentation without nagging and also keep track of the time. There is a simple focus tool which does just that – Flowformer.

Flowformer lets you enter a single task as a short sentence that you agree to complete (or avoid) over a 24 hour period. The timer begins and everything in Flowformer is locked down and there’s no backing out. You will have 24 hours to succeed or fail.

Every time you visit Flowformer over the 24 hour time slot your task will be displayed as a fullscreen reminder with a count-down timer on the top-left corner. No signup or registration required. You will fall in love with the simplicity and the design.

Flowformer

This is quite different from other reminder productivity apps that require listing tasks. Gavin the co-founder says “Having a singular goal per day let’s any consequential tasks flow around it and therefore you don’t need to list them”. Currently, the team is working on a mobile version and plan to release more useful features soon.

Now, there is no stopping you from becoming your most productive self. Set your goal for the day now!
