⏰ Similar to apps like flora, forest, eggzy and study bunny, Focusbyte is a pomodoro based focus timer. To stay focused these days requires a ton of effort and a lot of motivation, and with so much resistance it becomes almost impossible to concentrate for long periods of time . Focusbyte turns studying and doing work into an adventure where while your timer is on and you go on a hunt for treasure. If you leave the app while the timer is on you lose the treasure, but stick with it, and you will be rewarded with coins and experience points that go to leveling up your avatar. Make using the app a habit to use the app and watch your productivity levels rise and your phone use plummet. Level up your avatar and level up your life.

Great Potential

This is a very good app given that it's very new. There are definitely still some clunky parts but that's expected with all new apps. I love the novel idea on turning the Pomodoro technique into a game. I loved the Forest app but thought that there could be more interaction and this is exactly what I was looking for. I was hoping for possibly more battling or monsters or something but maybe that'll come in the future. I look forward to seeing how this app evolves though I will lower the rating if the evolving doesn't happen lol.

Good idea, bad execution

So, I love the idea and design of this app. However, it does not give you a sound notification when the timer runs out. So unless you’re glued to your phone in order to see the silent notification, it’s ultimately useless as a timer. You know, only the most basic function of a pomodoro. I’ve tested my phone to see if this is an issue with it or the app itself and it’s definitely only this app. I’ve checked the settings to see if I have notification sounds off, nope. Turned off and turned on my phone, nothing. I’ve deleted and reinstalled the app, nada. I have never had this issue with any other app before, and unfortunately, it’d actually be easier to ignore on another app. But on this one, it renders the product almost entirely useless.

I said that deleting and redownloading the app did nothing, I was wrong. It actually got rid of my items and pet despite me having a profile🙃

Huge Productivity Increase!

I was already using a pomodoro timer that worked... fine, but I thought I would try FocusByte to see if there would be any benefit.

WOW! I was already a good student, but FocusByte has helped me increase productivity in my studies AND other aspects of my life! The simple RPG/collect-a-thon style got me to focus more in my lectures, writing, workouts and readings too! In 2 days, I already deleted the mobile games (which I had for years) on my phone so I could stay focused!
