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.

Great app!

I am a too lazy of a person to write any review, but I like this app and wanted to share some information and suggestion about the app.

As a law student, I have been feeling anxious, uncertain if I am putting in enough hours for my school work, and this app does a great job letting me track how long I did the work each day. I like that I can adjust a number of minutes for each session In because most of apps only provide pomodoro style 25 minutes as an option. Also, I love that I could have the app fill the whole screen so I could start it again. Before using this function, I always missed hitting the start button again that I ended up deleting similar types of apps because of imprecise hours tracked.

If I may make some suggestions- it would be nice if I could label how many hours I spent on each task. Just a chunk of hours logged only gives me an idea that I did something, but looking back, j don't know on which task I spent my time. Also, a stick or pie graph that shows how many hours I focused on each different task would make this app the greatest. I have been looking for one but there's none that has those functions.

Thank you for this app and please keep up the great work!

Watch app looks great, but is unreliable

My primary use case for this app is on my Watch. I rely on it to tap when it’s time to take a break, or when my break is done. However, it fails to consistently do this – sometimes I get the tap as expected, other times I’m working away and realizing that it’s been much more than 25 minutes, why didn’t it tell me? When I look, sometimes the complication is waiting for me to respond, other times it’s counting time *up* instead of down!

Also, “Sessions Until Long Break” has been consistently off by one. I have it set to 4, but it actually takes 5 sessions before I get a long break. (Does it start counting from zero internally? I’ve just tried setting it to 3 to see what happens.)

The Watch complications look fantastic, and I *really* want to love this app. But I can’t depend on it to consistently tell me when time is up, or correctly identify when my long break starts.

Hi, I just want to let you know that we've released a brand-new Apple Watch app for Focus! 
We feel that Focus on the Watch is now so much better. Let us know what you think!

Best,

Use This App Every Day

I tried a number of Pomodoro timer apps across my phone and Apple Watch. They were all pretty good on the phone. Some had a little more functionality than others including premium services. The big issue was with the watch part of the app. I wanted the watch and phone apps to sync and I wanted to have the watch as the main controller while working. I work from home and often don’t know where my phone is during the day but the watch is always strapped on. With Focus the session modifications are managed on the phone. Once they’re set up the sessions can be controlled solely on the watch. I had questions about a couple things and emailed the developer. He was very responsive and helpful. So far I haven’t purchased the premium product but plan on buying it soon.
