Your Desk: The Optimal Choice

Workspace Sound

Workspace Sound

Music that works best for immersive tasks:

  • Familiar music, so your brain doesn’t look ahead for what’s next.
  • Classical music, especially Baroque-period pieces for productivity boosts and no lyrics.
  • Electronica and its repetitive sounds as a way to increase focus.
  • Video game soundtracks, which are created to be atmospheric, but not distracting.
  • Quiet music of any kind can provide background noise without disrupting focus.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Ghazala Begum

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
