Who is this app for?

Focused Work is a powerful timer that helps you have highly productive days.

Inspired by the Pomodoro Technique, it’s purpose-built for people who want to focus for long periods of time.

You can create repeatable Focus Sessions that are structured to tackle any kind of task or goal, comprised of Focus, Break, and Plan stages.

It helps you be more accountable, reminds you to focus, reflect, and build healthy productivity habits by completing daily goals.

Why did I create this?

I created Focused Work to help me in two areas of my life;

  • Struggling to focus and get work done when I'm unmotivated

  • Working for too long without breaks, and feeling mentally drained/burnt out

Focused Work helps me maintain focus & motivation by breaking down tasks into smaller, achievable parts - in the form of a Focus Session.

Completing smaller tasks builds momentum and morale, and with the app's periodic reminders to stay focused, I'm able to consistently remain on-task.

The app features a powerful Session Creator tool that makes it really easy to create different kinds of focus sessions.

I can assign projects & tasks with Toggl Track, apply an App & Website Filter, and trigger Shortcut Automations during my session. These help me maintain a balanced workload and ensure that I avoid most kinds of distractions.

Where other focus timers fall short in their rigidness, Focused Work adds flexibility to help you focus on any task.
