Focus is the most elegant and professional productivity timer that helps you to get more work done. Available for iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch and Apple Vision Pro!

Move Towards a Happier, Healthier, and More Productive Workday
Focus lets you break down your work time into smaller chunks called Focus Sessions. Working in sessions helps you to stay focused and get some meaningful work done, tackling one task at a time. Focus also encourages you to take regular breaks between your sessions which is particularly helpful to maintain your energy and keep your focus throughout the day.

“[…] a tool that can genuinely make people more productive" –

“[…] a must-have for anyone who finds themselves easily getting distracted or forgetting to take occasional breaks." –





Focus Sessions are a highly efficient way to work. Focus for 25 minutes, then take a short break to relax your mind. After four sessions, take a longer, 15 to 20 minute break. This method maximizes energy, stimulates creativity, and promotes a sense of achievement.


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.


Check in with your progress! Focus keeps track of your work and offers in-depth and motivating statistics. See your daily, weekly and monthly activity so you don’t lose sight of the big picture.


Sync Focus across your iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Apple Vision Pro and Mac with iCloud for a seamless experience. Use Shortcuts to build powerful productivity automations or view the most important information with Widgets. Focus is available where and when you need it!


Using Focus on your wrist is a natural fit. The independent Apple Watch app is made for for easy and lightweight interactions that lets you control sessions and track your progress throughout the day. With the Focus complication, you can customize your watch face to see your current progress at a glance.


The name says it all: Focus draws your attention to the most important things. It’s designed to be unobtrusive, accessible and easy-to-use. You’ll intuitively master its collection of features in no time.

New update is fantastic, hope for more to come!

I have been an off and on user of Focus for a long time. The latest update adds much needed UI love, and works so much better, especially on my iPad. Great work!

One area I think could use some love is the Apple Shortcuts. I can only speak for myself here but being able to add new tasks using Apple shortcuts would vastly improve my workflow. For example, it would allow me to create a shortcut to import all my daily tasks from Reminders. If I had a wishlist the two shortcuts would be “Create task with title and date” and “Filter/find existing tasks” to complete the “search and sync” features using shortcuts.

Additionally, a game changing feature would be the ability to automatically trigger the app to change the OS level Focus modes when starting/stopping sessions (or maybe just trigger shortcuts instead). For now I use Apple shortcuts to start DND at the same time as starting a Focus timer in the app, but I would love to be able to exit DND during breaks and automatically resume DND when my break is over.

Overall this is a great update and I love seeing it! The simplicity of this app makes it one of the best, and with some of the features above I think it would stand above the rest for me and instant 5 star.

I am going to resubscribe for now. I know you can’t promise anything but I wanted to be sure to share my thoughts.

Keep up the great work!

Best App to stay balanced with work and family!!!

Can’t say enough good things about this app! I’m studying for a promotional exam currently and this app has helped me know when to take breaks but not for too long. There are plenty of options to customize and very helpful to have it on many platforms to use on the go or while at a desk. Keep up the great work with the app! If I could give one suggestion, which is actually more of a request, I would like to see a kid mode or kid options in the app that could help them see a timer for brushing their teeth or bed time reading of some sort. I also have some kids that are close to being teenagers and as they use the app it would be cool for them to be able to customize the background timer as a cool image of choice. Anyway, something to consider and explore for the future. It was just a thought during my study break. I need to get back to the books. Great app, studying is rough but much better when you have something that just tells you when to do it! Thanks again!!

Hi and thanks a lot for taking the time during your break to leave a review. Your kind words mean a lot to us!

And great suggestions, thank you! We'll discuss how we can make Focus even more appealing for young people with more personalization options.

I wish you all the best for your promotional exam!

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!
