Coffitivity for Mac

By Coffitivity, LLC Free Editors' Rating

Download.com Staff Jan 30, 2014

Coffitivity loops coffee shop sounds to help those who work better with background noise.

Pros

Minimally invasive: Coffitivity resides in the upper menu bar and stays out of your way.

Volume control: Coffitivity's noise level can be controlled separately from your Mac's main system volume, so it doesn't underwhelm or overpower concurrently playing sounds.

Cons

Lack of music: It would be nice to have more variations, such as background music or cafe ambience from different regions of the world.

Bottom Line

Coffitivity's only purpose is to create ambient coffee shop sound, and it delivers. If you don't feel like walking to your local bean brewery but can't work without the background noise, then Coffitivity will bring the sound to you.

Developer's Description

Where do you go to get real work done? The coffee shop of course.

Based on research that shows ambient noise boosts creative thinking, the Coffitivity desktop app streams the ambient sounds of a coffee shop right to your Mac.

A simple click of the top menu bar icon toggles the app on or off and a right click reveals the controls for volume and track selection so you can choose your desired environment.

This app lives in your top menu bar. Once you install the app, you may remove the launch icon from the dock.

That's it! Enough noise to work.
