Best Pomodora style timer – and it’s free!

I’ve tried almost a dozen of these types of timers. Just Focus is hands-down the best one I found. I can’t believe it’s free. I would definitely pay for this, especially considering the price of the other options. I’m an IT & logistics director full-time and a freelance web designer on the side. I’m on the computer all the time. This is an essential tool for me to stay focused and keep from getting burnt out. I have ADHD so I need help staying on task, but I can’t stand for anything to clutter my workspace or interface. This is perfectly minimalist while still providing a good measure of control and customization.

While the app is practically perfect, I have just a few suggestions. First of all, the default sound effects are nice but a bit soft for me – customization here would be nice. I’d also like to see the ability to choose your own wallpaper source, either by adding new feeds or choosing a destination folder locally. Although I personally love the design quotes, it would be cool to add new feeds or add your own as well.

Keep up the great work. I’m excited to keep using this app!

Absolutely perfect focus timer for my ADHD!

Just Focus is the best countown timer that I have used… and I’ve used them all.
Simple menu bar timer countsdown the minutes until the break, and 1 minute before the break you get an alert (or banner… your choice) letting you know that in 1 minute, your break begins. When the timer hits 00:00, your screen is covered by an image and you are forced to take a breather. It’s brilliant and it works incredibly well.

Like I said, this is the best countdown timer that I have used. The only thing that would make it better is if we could use a small window that floats over top all other windows. Pomello does a great job at this… but I enjoy Just Focus much better… and I want things my way. :)

Awesome but a little weird

Love this app and use it every day. There are just two weird things I'd love to be able to change:

1. The Breaks have quotes from designers hard-coded as the quote source. It's great and all, but I'm only a designer 20% of the time. And I don't necessarily want quotes about design only. How about being able to configure it to be inspirational quotes from different data sources, or even a CSV file? It just sort of stands out as a weird choice like this general purpose app was made only for designers

2. The Statistics keep showing me stats from March 15 (it's currently March 18). I can't change the date. Is it meant to show just your record setting day / best day ever? I think it should be a calendar view showing your activity like Habit Hub or Calm or myriad other apps.

Other than these two quirks I love it, and it does its job great.
