Meet Focus: the best pomodoro app and time manager for iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and Mac. Focus is the most elegant and professional way to get more wore done, working in highly efficient work sessions, one task at a time.

“[…] a tool that can genuinely make people more productive" –

“[…] a must-have for anyone who finds themselves easily getting distracted or forgetting to take occasional breaks." –


Focus Sessions are a highly efficient way to work. Focus for 25 minutes, then take a short break to relax your mind. After four sessions, take a 15 to 20 minute break. This method maximizes energy, stimulates creativity and promotes a sense of achievement.

Focus includes a lightweight task manager that lets you organize the things you want to work on intuitively. By working on one task at a time, you won’t be distracted and can focus all your attention towards completing that goal. That way you’ll be perfectly organized on your path to success.

Check what you’ve already done! Focus keeps track of your work and offers in-depth and motivating statistics. See your daily, weekly and monthly activity so you don’t lose sight of the big picture.

Seamlessly use Focus on your Mac, iPad, iPhone, and Apple Watch. Sync across your devices using iCloud; use Handoff to pick up your current work on another device and get up-to-the-second data with iCloud Push. You can also use the Today widget to quickly glance at your progress, import tasks using the handy Action extension, and more.

Using Focus on your wrist is a natural fit. The independent Apple Watch app is made for for easy and lightweight interactions that lets you control sessions and track your progress throughout the day. With the Focus complication, you can customize your watch face to see your current progress at a glance.

The name says it all: Focus draws your attention to the most important things. It’s designed to be unobtrusive, accessible and easy-to-use. You’ll intuitively master its collection of features just by using them.


One subscription for all devices (Mac, iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch): Focus Pro includes lightweight task management, in-depth activity data, fast and secure iCloud sync to have your data across all your devices and more for $4.99 monthly / $39.99 annually.

Big price for a little app

I bought this app before it moved to a subscription model. It is ok as a pomodoro timer, but many such apps are available. Sync was more concerning than seamless. The task management features, which amount to a daily todo list, are not useful to me, because they neither augment nor replace the features of a good todo list app. It’s a $10 app on a good day, and a $40 annual subscription is frankly beyond belief.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your feedback. You can continue using the timer and the task management functionality for free (as an existing user) and if you feel you need the new activity, there is an upgrade price available. Nobody forces you to upgrade. Best, Jan

It would be awesome if it didn’t crash 20 times a day

I use this app to study in med school as i don’t really know how to take breaks and at first it really helped me a lot. Now it has gotten more and more annoying that every time (E-V-E-R-Y T-I-M-E!) i get a notification on my ipad that my session has ended and I go into the app it crashes and i have to reopen it. Also i downloaded it on my iphone and computer so when i take breaks i can stand and use my phone to know when the break has ended, but to say that the syncing of time between devices is glitchy would be an understatement. And i bought a whole year subscription so now im stuck with all of this😡.

Edit: changing rating to 1 star because of the passive aggressiveness of the person responding to the reviews.

And its not my end as i got friends with the same app and same problem so it seems like a software problem.

Developer Response ,

Here’s the thing: if the app crashes for some reason, we need some info on your setup etc. to reproduce this behavior and find out what the problem is. I asked you to get in touch, because we don’t have that problem and we can’t see what’s happening on your end (unless, of course we could do some magic, which we can’t). So, again, nice and polite: please get in touch to Thanks for your help!
