Ratings and Reviews
Great app but minor bug
Love this app but I can’t seem to get the quick start option on the menu bar icon’s drop down to work. Just shows a blank space. So instead, I have to go into the menu everytime to start blocking. Minor inconvenience but would be nice, especially since I upgraded to premium.

Hi, version 3.3 should fix the quick start menu issue.
This has SO much potential
There's an extension for google chrome that's called Just Focus. Similar to this, it lets you write which websites to block and gives you quotes when you try to visit them. The DIFFERENCE is on the timer. It counts up the time spent FOCUSED instead of giving you a count down until you can access those websites yet again. It even allows you to stop whenever it's needed to if, for instance, you're done working. This mentallity I've found to be better at productivity.

Hi, 1Focus is difficult to circumvent by design (unlike a browser extension), which most of its users appreciate. The countdown is only visible when you manually reveal it.
As someone who is easily distracted, this application has helped me complete work more efficiently. Even when I am not using this application I feel less of a need start going to my distractions instead of doing work. This application has completely changed my work ethic.
