Trusted daily by tens of thousands of engineer in Silicon Valley, independent studios in Madrid, writers in Netherlands, and creative worker + freelancer all over the world.

It helps you be more productive by guiding you to work in sessions, block distractions, track your time, and remind you to rest.

GET INTO HABIT OF WORKING IN TIME BLOCK
Inspired by Pomodoro technique, Session helps you block your time for focus. 25 minutes or 45 minutes is all you need to get closer to your goal

KEEP YOUR FOCUS BY BLOCKING WEBSITES AND APPS THAT DISTRACT YOU (MAC ONLY)
Session block distracting website and apps when you started a Session. It'll automatically restore your website when you are on rest / session has ended.

BLOCK SLACK TEAM
Session will automatically mute Slack team you choose when Session has started and open them up again when Session has stopped working.

DON'T FORGET TO TAKE A REST
Forcing yourself to work on long period of time is ineffective. Rest is as important as work / study. Why? Because rest is a crucial time where you:
- store what you have learned in your head, and where
- your brain solve difficult problem on the background.
Notice that you usually get a new idea and solves problem when you're on walk and shower. Or anywhere where you're away from "work".

AUTOMATE YOUR WORKFLOW (AUTOMATIC DO NOT DISTURB, PLAY MUSIC)

Imagine having no distracting notifications while working on. It's possible by turning on Do Not Disturb. What if you can turn it on when you started your Session, and disable it after Session ends—all automatically? Or maybe change bulb color, play Apple music when Session has started? Different playlist on break? It's possible with Session.

Automate it with AppleScript on MacOS and Apple Shortcut on iOS

Best way to keep your focus!

If you aren't scheduling your day on a calendar than you have to start now. Using a todo-list can be useful but shouldn't be your primary method (there are plenty of people who have good explanations).

Once you accept that premise, this app becomes essential. Using a calendar is very primitive; while it is great way to schedule events sessions in advance, it is a poor way to record your actualized work. Philip has put a lot of thought into this problem and it shows. The UI/UX is great and every new feature is well thought out. Phillip also does a great job communicating with users on discord and responding to suggestions. Very excited to see this grow (and it will)!

Thank you for staying for so long Egdenis!

Best Pomo for Professionals

Love the app and simplicity mixed in with simple graphs to give you a goal. Excellent layout, simple setup and input, best UX/UI of all. Which leads me to one suggestion... I’m assuming you (all) are working on Complications for the Watch, but not releasing until a certain level of acceptability, which I appreciate even though I’m impatient.
Hopefully able to integrate with watch soon considering big updates and IOS etc.
Keep up the good work.

P.S. - gotta figure out why this app is nearly impossible to find in the store

Hi Abc1992.

Thanks for the kind words!

I really want to release Apple watch integration, but right now I don't have any. Will get one soon if time permits. Also, I would love to chat with you to learn more about your usage better.

I'm reachable at t.me/stayinsession or hello@stayinsession.com

Love status bar feature

Great focus app -- two features that I really enjoy is the day 'schedule' feature that maps out how you have used your time. Really helps me visualize how I am doing. Also love that your focus topic shows up on your status bar with the time remaining - helps you refocus when you are switching between screens and getting distracted. App has a lot of features even within free verison which is really nice.

Developer Response ,

Can you elaborate 'schedule' feature Yanzala? Session has side calendar that maps out what you've done that day. Session log can see all sessions that you've made in the past.
