Foreman: The $2 Mac Power Tool
for Reducing Clutter

Is this a familiar sight?

Look at all these open apps:

What a pain in the patootie! All those apps clutter up your screen and turn ⌘+tab into a joke. But look what happens when Foreman closes the apps you don't need:

My heavens! What a relief!

If you find yourself with a bunch of unused apps open throughout the day, then Foreman will help you.

Foreman reduces clutter and helps you focus. It opens the apps you need and closes or hides the rest.

How it Works

You define app groups by dragging apps from the Finder into the space that says "Drag Apps Here To Create New Group".

Click a group to hide all applications which aren't in that group; shift+click to close apps instead of hiding them. Foreman also opens all the apps in the group that aren't already open.
