Needs Watch support

First time I’ve used this kind of app and it has really helped me stay focused on work at first attempt. I’m actually writing this on my long-break!!

Needs Watch support though.

The most valuable app on my iPad!

Focus keeper has changed the way I work! I achieve so much more because of this simple idea. I recommend it to colleagues, I even have my friends children using it for homework. I just wish I had discovered it 10 years ago! It is a perfect addition for anybody that runs their own business, it provides the structure that being employed by another person would give you. In my experience that structure plus the ability to drag yourself up off the floor when you get knocked down are keys to success. If you are hesitant (as I was in the beginning) please try this, you won't regret it!

Very useful for productivity

Nice UI, very simple app. Only criticism is that it'd be nice to be able to create different project names and see stats on individual projects. Also sometimes the time spent working each day doesn't add up to a multiple of 25 minutes, and can fluctuate a lot
