Tom is a friendly bear, except when you can not concentrate. He will do his best to help you focus on something!

Just place your screen face down and focus on what you do.
A variety of white noise will help you focus more.
If you concentrate well, Tom will praise you.
You can change the session time in the settings.
You can reset the timer by pressing Tom's belly button.

Please keep in mind that Tom can also enjoy fishing when you are focused.

Simple, stress free timer

I have tried several different focus timers and ended up using this app the most consistently. I like the bear, compliments, and white noise options, and find this app less stressful than the timers with gamification and negative consequences such as killing my digital plant.

However, I would like a more functional iPad version. I also would like a widget for the iPhone, so you could use bft with another app. (& maybe an option to set permissions for certain apps allowed to be used with the timer widget going)

Simple yet effective

The interface is super simple and easy to use, and that is what makes this app an incredibly effective focus tool. It doesn’t give you annoying reminders if you interrupt your focus session, Bear simply scowls at you. It is super nice that you can set different sounds to play when the timer is up. I also like that it isn’t a traditional circular timer for the screen. Instead, Bear makes you want to complete your study sessions so that he is happy. I absolutely love this app, and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a simple, easy, and effective app for helping them stay on task.

Great when it works

I downloaded this app a while back and since I’ve started working from home I’ve started using it again. It’s an amazing little app with beautiful illustrations but about 50% of the time the timer won’t start when I flip my phone over. It’s really frustrating because there is no option to start the timer manually, meaning I may flip my phone over and not realize it hasn’t been started until I check it 30 minutes later. It can’t be such a difficult fix and the fact that it hasn’t been fixed in the 3 weeks that I’ve been WFH, makes me wonder whether the developer spends any time on this app anymore.
