Staying on task seems is a real challenge for our screen-bound generation. The Be Focused lets you get things done by breaking up individual tasks among discrete intervals, separated by short breaks. It’s a surprisingly effective way to retain motivation and focus. Create tasks, configure breaks and track your progress throughout the day, week or custom period. Use either your iPhone, iPad or Mac – your devices always stay in sync.

Minor fixes and improvements
Downloaded a few and decided this was the best. Didn’t really need the pro version but I bought it because it was cheap, (on sale), and because I think these guys have done a good job. Things I like about it: 1. Straightforward, easy to use. 2. Large clock with big digits. 3. Ticking noise (optional). 4. Choice of alarms with independent volume control. 5. Tracks statistics and has graphs. 6. Works with display on or off. Hoping this app will transform me from a procrastinator into a workaholic.
Just missing a running count down on the status bar. Please add this. * I originally rated a 5 but the app continues to constantly ask for a rating via an annoying pop up. Even on the pro version there is no option to disable this pop up. You may think this is nothing but after many many times you get so annoyed by it that you switch to a competitor.
Easy to use. Would like to be able to add sub tasks and more customisation :)
First, the pro version promises you can sync across devices - but there is some fine print! If you want to sync to your computer you have to buy the desktop version separately! Second, I’ve been finding that sometimes when I lock my phone the “break” and “work” alerts don’t play. I don’t want to keep my phone on the entire time I’m working. I don’t quite understand what’s going on with this. Third, if you have your phone on silent (which you might want to do while you’re focussing on work!) the alerts don’t play either. An app that can override the silent mode on your phone would be better. But it’s a great principle and I like the ticking chronometer too.
Use it to time study sessions
No big complaints so far. I think syncing is about as good as it can be. But I can’t start a timer on my computer and have my phone notify me while I’m on break, unless I open the app on my phone. That aside it’s a good app and is helping my productivity. Hopefully it doesn’t bother me about getting focus matrix as well. I did look into that and it doesn’t meet my needs at this point.
Tried so many other apps with ridiculous recurring pricing! This app does everything I need! The best I have ever bought because it’s making me more productive every day!
I find this app surprisingly helpful to keep focus on my work. I noticed that the ‘end of work’ sound does not work unless the Noticications are On for this app. However, the sound for End of break works even if Notifications are off! In my opinion the sounds set in this app should be independent of the Notifications status.
Great app. Does the job. Most important thing is to use the app consistently and to monitor one’s progress.
This app really keeps me on task. I do wish I could add time to my stats for the times I forget to start the timer. That way I could keep track of the weeks progress.
Great App recommend
The layout is slightly confusing but it is otherwise a useful app for time management.
Full featured, well designed interface. Synching across devices is reliable. I depend on this app to keep me honest and track my real, factual effort, rather that relying on guesswork.
If you like the “Pomodoro” method, this app is perfect. It is super customizable and it integrates seamlessly with the MacOS app. Even if you don’t, it makes a great time tracker if you work on different projects and need to track time on each.
Great tool for staying focused.
Love the app, it really helped me manage my study.
Love the ease of use especially across devices. Would be good to have better stats and a way to record distractions while running a pomodoro.
Awesome app to keep focus.
It’s a good app!
It works well overall but is slow to sync between iPad and Mac apps. It also had a sync issue today resulting in the deletion of a week's worth of completed sessions. There needs to be a way of updating the records manually, in case you complete work intervals away from the computer.
This app has so much potential and I really would like it to be better... Firstly the alarms are not working for me at all (I'm on iPad on the latest iOS..). Secondly, I just completed my 2nd pomodoro today... and it's giving me a 15min break, I think because it's also counting previous day pomodoros, but really it should reset when a new day starts. Other than that I do love the integrated Task Tracking and Reporting... please fix these basic issues soon so I can continue using this app! :)
