Donut Dog: Focus & study timer

Stay motivated & productive

VIEW

The quirky focus timer Donut Dog aims to help you cut down on the time you spend on your phone by rewarding you for keeping your hands off your handset. Click the green Focus button and for every 10 minutes you don’t use your device, you’ll earn a virtual doughnut that you can feed to a virtual dog. Sound strange? That’s exactly why you’ll remember to use it.

Hitting challenge times—from a half hour to three hours—earns you a mix of doughnuts, coins, and tokens.

With its adorable graphics, Donut Dog presents you with useful stats, showing how much time you’ve spent “focusing” in total. A calendar highlights streaks of your especially productive doughnut-making days.

All those doughnuts you’re making serve a purpose. They feed this one-eyed dog, appropriately named Focus.

When you start out, your machine will only make common doughnuts—old-fashioned, powdered sugar, chocolate-frosted. But as you progress, you’ll create confections with more flair—circular pastries festooned with emoji or bacon-and-egg icing. Focus more than your friends to get the most exotic collection of breakfast treats.

Doughnuts appear from a pipe on Donut Dog’s main screen. The more time you spend away from your phone, the more of them you make.

After using Donut Dog for a few days, you’ll start to get a certain satisfaction just seeing your phone sitting idle on a table. After all, you’re earning delicious virtual doughnuts. The best part? These are calorie-free.
