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.
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.

This app is poor. Cannot end subscription. Do not download!
I wanted to like this app but there are 2 fatal problems with it: First, it doesn’t even work. Notifications never come up, no sounds occur, so you keep working and working past the allotted times period. I disabled do not disturb and used the app on my watch. No notifications ever occurred. Totally defeats the purpose of timeboxing.
Second, there is no way to END the subscription. The only way to even use the app is to sign up for a subscription, which has a free trial for the first few days. After using this app for 30 minutes it was totally clear I didn’t want it, so I went to “manage subscription” to end my subscription and conveniently for them....there’s an error! So now I’m going to have to track them down to end my subscription and they surely will drag the process out past the free trial period to get their money.
I regret downloading this app. Please learn from my mistake and just use the timer that is already built in to iOS.

Subscription management is entirely handled by Apple. Please get in touch with them if this site shows an error.
Notifications are working fine, you can also check that in the app settings > Notifications. If there is a problem, we’re also happy to help: email@example.com.
