Who is this app for?

It's purpose-built for people who want to focus for long periods of time, working towards completing a goal or task, and be encouraged to remain focused.

Folks in particular include; people managing ADHD, Professionals, Authors, and students.

You can run Focus Sessions that can be a simple timer, Pomodoro (inspired by the Pomodoro Technique), pick from a plethora of templates, or you can be creative and make your own sessions.

For those who enjoy setting daily goals, Focused Work supports this to help people build healthy productivity habits, and you can view your recent stats and reflect on your sessions.

Why did I create this?

I originally created Focused Work to manage personal challenges with maintaining focus, avoiding burnout from long work sessions, and switching between tasks of varying concentration levels.

After launching, I soon realised these were common issues amongst folks that range from high achievers to students, including those managing ADHD.

What distinguishes Focused Work from typical timer-based focus apps is its flexibility. It allows people to achieve deep focus for any task - a feature highly praised by its users.

They can run a simple on-screen timer, structured Pomodoro sessions with Focus + Break intervals, other techniques like Flowmodoro, or can create their own sessions to suit a particular task or how their mind works. It is extremely useful and powerful.

There’s also integrations with Shortcuts, App & Website Blocking, and Toggl for advanced workflows. But the cherry on top is a tailored UX across iOS, iPadOS, and macOS, that’s colorful and fun.


Focused Work is free to download. Folks can upgrade to Focused Work Pro for $4.99/month, $29.99/year, or $59.99/lifetime to gain access to additional functionality & configurations.
