Needs work

This app shows promise but isn't yet greater than the sum of its parts. This app is begging for the ability to set a timer when turned on. Being able to set it on a schedule would also be nice.

The ability to turn off wi-fi and block apps is good, but it's too easy to just shut off focus mode to use the stuff I have blocked. An option to turn it on for a specified time and lock it so that it can't be turned off would be great.

Another minor quibble is that the app has to remain open in the dock for the top bar icon to remain visible. It would be nice to be able to close the app but have it remain open in the background like other apps do.

I feel like the app is trying to do a lot of things but not doing any of them quite as well as the individual apps it's trying to replace, but maybe it will get better with time and refinement.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for the kind and super detailed review! Lots of interesting points you've raised and appreciate you taking the time to share them.

I've added the option to hide the dock icon in the focusedOS 1.1 update which will be released this week - you will be able to find it in the Settings screen. Thanks!

I'll keep some notes around the idea of setting timers, scheduling, enforcing stricter blocking. The first two are things I had initially considered but didn't make the cut for the app release.

Hope you enjoy using the advanced dimming / advanced app limiting / ambient sound media controls that I've also added to the 1.1 release!

Feel free to drop me a line in-app via the Submit Feedback form, I'd love to ask you some questions about the scheduling if interested.

Cheers, and enjoy!

Immediately Increased Productivity!

Just finished my first "Session" with the app and already I love it. It blocked out all my other distracting windows that I need, but don't want to see every second. I also loved the fireplace sound to block out all other distracting noises!

If you struggle with focus, definitely give focusedOS a try!

Great Idea, Great Implementation

I’ve been using this app for a few days and already seeing improvements to my productivity. The simple act of deciding that I’m in focus mode and flipping the switch is surprisingly helpful for my mindfulness.

Thanks heaps for the kind review!! Great to hear focusedOS has been super helpful for your productivity, and glad it's as easy as flicking a switch. Enjoy!
