Do you want to be focused? You do not need to delete social networking, news, or chat apps!

If you want to put away your phone and focus on what's important in real life, you can turn on the donut machine and make donuts for your virtual dog Focus. Every donut needs a specific time to be produced and as time goes by, you will bake donuts. However, if you cannot resist using your phone and leave the app, your donut baking machine will stop. Keep in mind that Focus needs to be fed!

The sense of achievement of running your own little donut shop and the responsibility for the virtual dog named Focus will encourage you to stay away from your phone. Focus will help you make better use of your time. Stop getting distracted by your phone, make you self-motivated, and get more things done.

This is a special productive study and work timer app. Donut Dog is heavily gamified, motivating, and competitive. You can call it a life hack because it helps you to develop healthy habits. Donut Dog is a great tool to fight your phone addiction and improve your attention span to become more productive. Throw away traditional time tracking and stopwatch apps.

• Donut Dog is a productivity tool that feels like a game! There are plenty of achievements like quests and special donuts you can earn. You can customize the app, unlock new donuts, or upgrade the donut machine. Level up and compete with friends!
• The design is super cute and packed with a ton of details so you won't get bored!
• Donut Dog motivates you to focus again the day after you were productive so you can develop a regular work schedule.
• Detailed statistics keep you informed on how you performed the last week and months.
• Tag your sessions to track your time and see what you did!

• working in your office and you need to focus
• studying for school / university at home or in your library / dorm room
• meditating to give your head some space
• paying attention to a class or meeting
• going to bed to develop healthy habits of sleep

Adorable and useful!

I love this app! As a self-employed writer, I often have a hard time focusing and managing my time, but Donut Dog makes it easy and fun! The graphics and interface are charming. Big tasks seem less daunting when you tackle them in 5-25 minute sessions, and this app, unlike your standard phone timer, allows you to generate cutesy donuts with every session you complete and increase the happiness of your virtual dog! Pleasing the dog, collecting new donut recipes, and unlocking rewards by completing quests is proving to be a surprisingly effective motivator for me. EVEN BETTER, you can use the gems you earn as you level up to sponsor meals for REAL dogs in need at a European non-profit! I highly recommend this app for folks like me who have a hard time getting started and staying on-task (and are motivated by the thought of feeding virtual and/or real dogs). Thank you for making this game and supporting hungry dogs!

So happy I found this app

This is a well made app! It’s very cute and it works! I have so much trouble with procrastination. I’ve used A LOT of different apps. Most of them are ones where I plant trees, which got kind of boring after a while. I like this one because I have a choice on whether I want a set timer or if I just want to start the timer from zero. There are a lot of things to unlock. One thing I would like is if I would be able to choose my own dog and watch him eat or grow when I feed him the donuts I’ve earned. The free version works well, but I decided to do the one-time payment for this app because I wanted to buy an indie developer some coffee.

I really want to love it.

I love the idea of this app. I want to love it in practice. It has helped me stay focused, and dramatically decreased the amount of time I spend on my phone. My issue is that in the 25+ hours I have logged, I haven’t made any progress on the quests that require “normal” donuts even though that’s what I’m collecting. The daily and hourly sections never make any progress, so how are they daily and hourly. I have to get SIXTY of a donut variety to be able to upgrade it, which takes days. I understand focusing is a longterm life skill, but when creating a new habit it would be nice to incentives small progress. It was also difficult to find a line to ask questions to the development team without writing a mediocre review. I attempted to submit one, but after writing and sending it got a message saying I didn’t have access or something to that effect.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for the review! If you want to contact me directly, there is a way inside the app: go to settings, scroll down and click on the email symbol or "report a bug". Regarding the progress system: I changed that in the latest update and you were mentioned in the update news. I made it more easy for people who just start out to feel the progress. The whole system is now more balanced so there is progress in the first week or after the first year. I really love your feedback so please never hesitate to write me an email. Feedback is always used to create new updates! Best, Patrick
