Focus Timer

By Nikita Zubkov

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


OS X Yosemite and Retina-ready.

Focus Timer is a tool to focus on your tasks. And focus is a key to productivity.

It helps you split your work into series of work and break sessions, takes minimum space on your desktop living in the status bar but still is accessible in one click.

You can use it for Pomodoro Technique, one of the most effective time management methods, or find your own approach to work.

What's New in Version 1.4

- Flexible breaks. Break now can have flexible time so it is you who decide when to get back to work.

- Fixes for Dark Mode and other minor bugs.

Customer Reviews

This is it… for now.

I tried literally more than 30 different Pomodoro based apps and all of them had at least a thing I didn’t find suitable for my workflow. This is the first one that is almost entirely fitting my workflow, simple, minimal, unobtrusive (without purpose), and with keyboard shortcuts done right. The only thing I’m missing is the option to set the auto-play to either yes or no, but I can live without it.

The best time keeping app!

I researched a few time keeping apps before I decided to buy this one and I’m glad I went with this one. The updates for it have made it more than worth the money.

Shortcuts to quickly access the app, Start/Stop, Pause/Resume, etc., choosing to have a break overlay or not, custom break and work times and more. It’s such a simple little app, but I love everything about it.

Does what it says, basic for 2.99

Does what is says and works. Would like to see some additional functionality like tracking of time spent on specific tasks, tracking time spent on each task per day etc.
