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.

A must for any creative person

collective method

I’m an avid writer and keeping track of my writing sessions has always been somewhat of a challenge. That was until I discovered the pomodoro technique. Intuitively, I began looking for an app to assist me in tracking my sessions. Luckily, I found Focus. I have to admit that at first I was very skeptical. Actually, I gave up on Focus at one point. But I simply couldn’t find anything better. Then, they released an update around the release date of the iPhone X and it was everything I was looking for in a pomodoro tracker with the analysis, insight and stability lacking not only in the previous version but also from every other version of every other pomodoro tracker app. If you are a productivity app junkie like me, look no further. This app is easily in my top 3.

Mostly solid but Watch app could do with some love

Very Hungry Guy

I use this pretty much every day to help focus through the less exciting parts of work. There are two things that would help make this a five-star app:

1. The ability to easily set different focus lengths. Some times you need 25 minutes focus to get started, but once you are up and rolling it would be nice to easily move this up to, say, 45 minutes.

2. A Watch app that actually works. There are way too many times where the app just sits there and finally closes. And this is on a newer version Apple Watch.

Developer Response

Changing the session length more easily is a good idea, we will look into it. Regarding the Watch app: make sure it finishes the loading process once (during that time the screen must be turned on otherwise it will start from the beginning again; you can rotate the digital crown to achieve that). Once it has finished loading, the launch and response time should be much quicker afterwards. If that does not work, please get in touch: Best, Jan.

Great App, Just Needs Reminders Integration


If there was a way to integrate reminders, I would be a life long customer and push this to everyone I know.

As it is, I have to manually move tasks over to this app from apple reminders app and then check the task off of each app separately.

Some syncing would be nice, take a look at fantastical ;)

Developer Response

Hi and thanks for leaving a review! We will look into a Reminders integration. This is a feature we like to add in the future. Best, Kerstin
