Execllend for focus

This application is great and really help you to time box your tasks, so that you are forced to keep to a schedule. Love it!

Some improvement ideas for the developers:
Pls make it easy to set custom times. You should be able to set a time from the main screen without having to create a new task to go along with this. I often find that I dont need a list of tasks, just the ability to easily set a time and press start :)

the timer should improve to have a full-screen version

The design of this application was nice in both function and aesthetic, however it is kind of annoying if you want to open a full screen timer to enhance the focus because it does not have one.

Full-screen timer should be an option avaliable for future development —— just as it is avaliable on the phone, so the time left can be enlarged into bigger size that will create a sense of urgency as well as clear all distraction on the screen —— See? Perfectly in fit with its title "Be Focused!"

Very nice

This application has a really proven to be a help to me with not only staying on task for long periods of time but to also allow me to keep track of how much work I have done in the day. It would be nice to have a built in stopwatch/timer as this is not a feature that I believe is included is stock Mac OS. It has to be said too: the advertisements, while there, are discreet and I have never been bothered by them. I highly recomend this app for anyone struggling with heavy workloads or just needs help concentrating.
