Simple, but effective

Love this app- does exactly what I need it to do, which is help me focus for short bursts. Every time I use it, I am amazed that I actually CAN focus and get work done! Love the ticking sound you can turn on as that especially helps get me in the right headspace for working.

Only downfall for me is making sure I actually turn the timer on, but that’s a much smaller step for me to take than trying to force myself to focus without the app. Highly recommend if you’re a big procrastinator!

Extremely useful for long-term productivity

I've found this app to be extremely useful for helping me (as the name suggests) 'Be Focused' on whatever I'm working on. I really like the way you can adjust the 'working' and 'rest' periods to suit whatever task you're performing and how it then tracks the number of cycles you've done. A great tool, especially for those who wish to be productive with the time they spend on a task.

Fabulous tool

I use it all the time to control my screen time while drafting patterns on the computer. If I take a few minutes break every 25 mins my eyes don’t get strained. If I don’t use the timer I will sit for hours without a break. I love how easy it is to set the time blocks and it is so easy to use. I don’t need to track my blocks so the free version is great for me.
