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.

Helps me complete homework both earlier and more efficiently

I started using this a few months and it is extremely useful for help with my schoolwork. The times for each each focus and break can be easily changed meaning that I could change the timings to the recommended amount my school suggest I spend on work. Having a visual countdown gives me motivation to try and complete the work before the timer is up and also motivates me as I know a break is coming. The fact that it also has a long break feature every so often means that sessions whilst trying to complete work are a lot more structured and I am therefore a lot more efficient than I would be if I just sat down at my desk and said “now do my homework”! Extremely effective even if you don’t buy the premium!

I love this app

I use it for getting the house tidied. 25 mins for different tasks means that I work flat out and don’t get too bored or sidetracked. I also use this app when studying. Works really well for me. Would definitely recommend.

This app is a complete swindle

This app is a complete swindle, bordering on fraudulent. I paid £6 for the download and it worked for a while, but now it's been "updated" so I must now subscribe and pay another £35 a year for it to continue to work as it should. And £35 a year for what exactly? You can buy OmniFocus 3 outright for less than this, a vastly superior piece of software in every respect. Focus is basically just an overpriced timer, essentially a scam, so my advice would be to use your free timer and save yourself being ripped off.

Developer Response ,

Last year in October we shipped a completely rewritten version of Focus, a major update, and we introduced a subscription to sustainably finance the ongoing development of Focus. However to make this transition fair for our existing customers, timer and task management functionalities as well as iCloud syncing are free of charge for those who have bought Focus before. If you have troubles with the subscription unlock of these features, please contact us and we will solve the problem. Best wishes -Kerstin
