The internet is a lot of fun, but it can also be a huge time-sink. Focus helps preserve your productivity by blocking whatever sites or apps are sapping your attention. Working together with your browser or macOS, it’s in your corner in the fight against temptation. With a flexible but firm scheduling setup, you can build in time to unwind while still safeguarding your work hours. Plus, customizable inspirational quotes and a progress-tracking feature help you stay committed. The power is yours!
Sounds good? Well, it looks good, too.
Focus key features
Focus lets you tailor its blocking features to your needs exactly. You can block entire applications, whole websites like Facebook or Twitter, or even specific pages. Find a new addictive page or app? Just add it to your fully customizable block list. Focus stays with you and lets you decide what your limits should be.
“All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy,” as the old saying goes. With the Schedule feature, you can decide when your page blocker should give you a break. Any good focus app gives you a chance to blow off steam — when you schedule with Focus, it’s easy to get back in the groove once your break time is over.
Sometimes, the best way to stay motivated is to see how far you’ve already come. The app’s built-in analytics show you how much time you’ve saved with your app blocker by generating custom graphs. You can use these graphs to challenge yourself to one-up your own productivity next week.
When you try to visit a blocked site or application, Focus will show you a gray screen with an inspirational quotation. You can choose from their extensive catalogue of motivational quotes, or set it to feature one of your own. More than just a blocker, the app can make sure you see just the words of wisdom you need to get your head in the game.
Take back control
Distractions can only reach you on your terms. Focus concentrates your working life so you have enough time for personal one too.
