What is the best app to stay focused while studying?

Especially looking for an iOS/Watch/Mac app, which logs my productive hours while I study for University.

    Replaces your New Tab with a focused view of your tasks, notes, with custom wallpapers. Very relaxing.

    Tide

    Focus timer with nature sounds for creators

    Tide gathers a great collection of nature sounds for people to listen while focus. A new Pomodoro Technique along with white noise (natural sounds) immerses me into your creation, ponder or meditation. A half-hour concentration, followed by a five-minute break, the Tide Timer helps me to be as much productive as I can.

    I rarely write reviews for apps but Tide is amazing. As someone with ADHD and difficulty concentrating, this has dramatically improved my ability to concentrate. Can’t recommend highly enough. I now have so much motivation to study, it’s a great app!

    Self Control (Mac)

    Avoid distracting websites

    This app protects you from your worst habits :D Make a list of websites to block, set the duration, and then go. It will block those apps without you being able to "turn it off."

    Qbserve (our app) tracks productivity automatically. It shows your current performance at the menu bar and the dock in real-time, so it's easier to stay focused. Unfortunately, we can't make an iOS apps because of the iOS sandbox restrictions. (We have a student discount, by the way!)

    For me, the name caught my attention. I started using Calm in 2017 when I came across it's Apple app of the year 2017 promotions. Since then I've been glued to using calm. What hooked me to it is its UI and a wide range of ambient music choices.

    I use this almost everytime, it's an as clean as possible timer wich let's you organize your time into 52 minutes of work and 17 minutes of pauses, kinda like the pomodori technique but it logs the times you have completed a circle.

    This is hands-down my favorite β€” it blocks distracting websites and apps on your laptop, and gets out of your way otherwise. Like Self-Control, but with an even-nicer UI!
