Fantastic! Was a life saver in year 12

This year I completed year 12, and whilst I was pretty good with no procrastination and sticking to the task, this app worked like a charm to keep me focussed and help me keep track of how long id studied for that day. It works as a tool for people to just begin working and keep working, or for those who like to organise their time more efficiently. Very easy to navigate and customise (I brought the full version which is really cheap). I especially love the colours and sounds for focus time( for example the cafe sounds take you far away to a place that you can be in a mind set to work)

For an easily-distracted writer with ADHD like me, this app prompts intense bursts of focused work which stay manageable because I always know there’s a planned break ahead. ADHD rebels against routine, but really needs it too. I can churn out 4000+ words in four 25 minute bursts for a first draft manuscript using this app, productivity that was unimaginable before using Focus Keeper.
I pay for the extra options; the right ticking sound for focus, the relaxing ocean audio for the breaks, the screen colours which feel appropriate to me. All this makes the app easy and fun to use every day. Thank you, developers – it’s a career-saver.

Great way to track your work

I use this app every time I have to write something. I used to think that I invest a lot of time into writing. Then, I used this app and noticed that I was spending much less time on writing than I had thought. Valuable time went to waste for lunch break, coffee break, snack break etc. With this app I recorded the net time I actually do writing and was a bit surprised. So, now I use it to measure the actual time I spend on a task. This keeps me focused and motivated!
