The world is a hive of distractions, multi-tasking, and cultural ADD. Many sit down to write and watch hours vanish with nothing to show but a trail of browser tabs. Flowstate is a response to the amphetaminic digital age. It frees the writer to turn on, tune in, and open up.
HOW IT WORKS
Choose how long you want to write (5, 15, 30 min), then enter a flow session. If you exit early, or stop typing for longer than five seconds, all progress is lost. The only way to save your work is by writing until the timer ends.
Flowstate is guided by a simple philosophy: flow, then react.
What does it feel like to write with pure momentum? What comes out when you hurtle deeper and deeper without pausing to tweak or edit?
For those willing to set aside their preconceptions of how to write, they may find a companion in Flowstate: a single law that silences the analytical brain and amplifies a voice of candor.
What you have to offer is you. The way out is through.

I like it. A lot, Would love to see more options
I bought both OS Mac and iOS within moments of reading reviews, love the dark theme, the font sizing by pinch is awesome,
Cant find options to create Hotkeys and Menubar Access
I would love to see a "Save Now” option, if you dont reach the time limit,
and you have something else pressing, i.e. putting Mac down to do something non related.
I would like more time options to work to, goals of 30 seconds, 1 min etc. That would suit my writing style, smaller goals, get to reach them quicker.
Would love to see a file option so I can organise my drafts.
Would love to see a tag option so drafts can get drilled down.
Would love to see a search option, to find drafts quicker.
Would love to see text widescreen, so text is the complete width of the screen.
I would love all of the above available to iOS
How can you not be intrigued?
This is the kind of ingenious idea that seems obvious once you read about it.
I’ve recently bought a MacBook Pro, and while I bought it for running music and video software, I couldn’t wait to get this. I think it’s a wonderful implementation of a cool concept. Only used it twice so far, looking forward to using it more regularly.
