Great to get stuff done; add watch support for 5🌟

Work from home a lot.
Challenge to stay focused, and not just drift between zoom calls.

Am now blocking out some focus times in calendar plus using focus keeper to get more work done.

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!

Simple but great app (5 stars) but no watch support (-2 stars)

Does what’s on the tin: providing an elegant implementation of Pomodoro Technique. I’ve tried all the other options and this is, by far, the nicest version.

But, Developers, please add watch support! Most of us using some version of work times do so to improve our focus and productivity. Forcing us to interact with our phones just adds a potential source of distraction.
