Meet Focus: the best time manager for iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and Mac. Focus is the most elegant and professional way to get more wore done, working in highly efficient work sessions, one task at a time.

“[…] a tool that can genuinely make people more productive" –

“[…] a must-have for anyone who finds themselves easily getting distracted or forgetting to take occasional breaks." –


Focus Sessions are a highly efficient way to work. Focus for 25 minutes, then take a short break to relax your mind. After four sessions, take a 15 to 20 minute break. This method maximizes energy, stimulates creativity and promotes a sense of achievement.

Focus includes a lightweight task manager that lets you organize the things you want to work on intuitively. By working on one task at a time, you won’t be distracted and can focus all your attention towards completing that goal. That way you’ll be perfectly organized on your path to success.

Check what you’ve already done! Focus keeps track of your work and offers in-depth and motivating statistics. See your daily, weekly and monthly activity so you don’t lose sight of the big picture.

Seamlessly use Focus on your Mac, iPad, iPhone, and Apple Watch. Sync across your devices using iCloud; use Handoff to pick up your current work on another device and get up-to-the-second data with iCloud Push. You can also use the Today widget to quickly glance at your progress, import tasks using the handy Action extension, and more.

Using Focus on your wrist is a natural fit. The independent Apple Watch app is made for for easy and lightweight interactions that lets you control sessions and track your progress throughout the day. With the Focus complication, you can customize your watch face to see your current progress at a glance.

The name says it all: Focus draws your attention to the most important things. It’s designed to be unobtrusive, accessible and easy-to-use. You’ll intuitively master its collection of features just by using them.

Use Focus, to combat interruptions!

I use Focus to keep me on track when 2 workplace factors collide:
1) the requirement to get key tasks completed
2) the possibility of an interruption is very likely
I find that leaving the volume up slightly on the ticking sound keeps me going!

Not suitable for many things on the to-do-list

The app crashes and lags whenever there is a longer list of things to complete (left column). It also consumes a lot of battery and makes the macbook run really slow.
When you add things to do, sometimes it takes almost 10 minutes for the space to pop-up where you write the things to do, and you might continuously click on it because you think it's not responding, 10 minutes later, you get 10 blank spaces that are in your "to-do-list" and it's annoying.
It's cool however, because it does keep track of how much time it takes for you to complete an assignment, and how much you've been "focused" for the day compared to the other days of the week, and compared to the month as a whole. I would enjoy using this app if it didn't make my macbook lag so so much. I can't even read/scroll pdf files properly when the timer is happening in the backgroud.

Developer Response ,

Oh, I'm very sorry to hear that! That's new information for us, we haven't heart about such a bug until now. Can you send us the diagnostics data from within Focus and get in touch via ? On which device and on version of macOS does the issue occur? We hope to hear from you soon and will get back to you quickly to figure out what happened and how to fix it. Thanks! -Best wishes, Kerstin

Great application

I especially like how well it integrates with Shortcuts.

That is a life changer for me because I use loads of automations using Toggl and Focus for Time-Tracking.
