Ratings and Reviews
Better alternative to Be Focused Pro
I used to use Be Focused Pro, but got frustrated that I kept losing my data when I wanted to look back at the reports to see my progress. Using Focus was a lot better because I can visually see how my productivity varies each week/month and how much time I put into each task. One time the Focus iOS app wasn't syncing correctly with the Mac app but I was able to receive help after emailing the support team. I am very satisfied that I still have my session progress saved. This app informed me about my productivity in my fall semester of college and I am looking forward to continue using it to finish my senior year (especially with Student Teaching tasks!). I also really love the menu bar item because it reminds me to get work on the present task. The dark mode and accent colors are a nice and necessary additions, as someone who works on my computer at night. Overall I would recommend this app to anyone who wants to keep track of their productivity with the Pomodoro method or set up their own work and break session length. Keep up the good work!
Best timer that uses Pomodoro technique
I can use this on my Mac, iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch. I love that you can drag OmniFocus tasks to the taks list. I wish there was an option to publish completed sessions to your calendar. I also wish it had some achievement-type gamification. It would also be nice to have more than one ticking sound to select from. I would like to see them work closer with OmniGroup to integrate Focus with OmniFocus even more. I also wish there was a share button on the statistics area. These are all things that would take it to the next level. As is, it is still the Pomodoro-friendly timer that checks the majority of the boxes for me.
Unreasonable Expectations of Customers
This is not a new concept and I am positive Focus is not the first to create this sort of application--it certainly is not the only one. What did I get from my download? I got hit with a descriptions of payment plans, a whopping $4.99/mo for the month-to-month subscription. Upon investigating what $4.99/mo would get me, I found the app that is a literal start-stop timer that you are expected to use again and again and again cycling 5 and 20 minute breaks at the right intervals. I don't suspect many would be willing to fork over $4.99/mo at this point when so many subscription based models are vying for our money. I'm in fact disappointed that such a simple application (even slightly unattractive visually) would even ask for a subscription, and not even at a more reasonable $.99/mo or a $1.99/mo. I might have even tried to use this app for its intended purpose, but I doub if it even helps people focus. Big pass. I think you should reconsider how to make money in the app world. Do not expect for a second that the world shares your enthusiasm for your products and pricing. I apologize for the critique as I'm sure you are lovely people. Think about it.
