Description

Focus is the most elegant and professional productivity timer that helps you to get more work done.

Move Towards a Happier, Healthier, and More Productive Workday
Focus lets you break down your work time into smaller chunks called Focus Sessions. Working in sessions helps you to stay focused and get some meaningful work done, tackling one task at a time. Focus also encourages you to take regular breaks between your sessions which is particularly helpful to maintain your energy and keep your focus throughout the day.

FEATURES

======================

FOCUS SESSIONS

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 longer, 15 to 20 minute break. This method maximizes energy, stimulates creativity, and promotes a sense of achievement.

TASK MANAGER

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 reduce distractions and can put all your attention towards completing your goals. That way you’ll be perfectly organized on your path to success.

IN-DEPTH STATISTICS

Check in with your progress! 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.

FOCUS EVERYWHERE

Sync Focus across your iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and Mac with iCloud for a seamless experience. Use Shortcuts to build powerful productivity automations or view the most important information with Widgets. Focus is available where and when you need it!

FOCUS & APPLE WATCH: A PERFECT FIT

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.

Focus har hjulpet meg enormt!

Fantastisk verktøy som er til stor hjelp. Elsker muligheten til å kunne dra oppgaver rett over fra Omnifocus og måten den integrasjonen er gjort på.

Har prøvd fler pomodoro-apper, men takket være oppgavelisten i Focus og integrasjonen med omnifocus, så finnes det ingen som kan samenlignes.

A good app.. but...

I just passed my 7d trial, and I find that I'm using this app a lot. It syncs well back to omnifocus, and is addictive, as you want to keep those 100% focus for 8 sessions per day.

Still, I miss the following features:

1. The reporting system is poor. It says when you started a task, when you ended a task, but not the duration of the session on THAT task. I track my time per category of what I do. For example: I want to find out how much time I use on finance per week. This is hard to do, unless you manually enter in a google sheet the time started on a task, the time ended on a task.

This could easily be fixed if we could lable all the tasks, and that could show in the report.

2. When dragging over many tasks from Omnifocus, I'd like to be able to put these into folders too.

3. I'd also like to see how long breaks I had during the day in an easy overview. The goal is to keep the number of breaks to the minimum, but also the lenght: Even if a pomodoro is e.g 50m work 10m break, it sometimes drags out above the 10m. (Or less than 10m).

An easy fix for this would be to have a graphical timeline that shows your day from A to Z.

Include all these features, and I'll update my review to a 5star. It is fluently working and syncs well between the devices.
Also, I'd like to defend the price. It is worth the money, even if other apps does the same thing. The interface is slick and looks good in dark mode.

I hope you'll add features and stay innovative on this app.

Thanks

Yes. This helped me a lot.

I’ve always had a hard time focusing on one task at the time. This really helped me finish one task at a time and made my workflow more efficient. But it does not control your willpower…its up to you to be able to control yourself.
