Hey everyone. Maker of Focus and Moment (https://inthemoment.io) here. I built Focus to tackle the texting and driving problem in a way that's never been done before. There are a few apps that attempt to block your phone use while you're driving, but they're cumbersome and aren't effective. Focus will let you use your phone as much as you want, but the app will nag you until you put your phone down. The more you use your phone while driving, the angrier Focus will get... Here's a bit more about why I built Focus: https://medium.com/@kevinholesh/...

$9.99 is a bit pricey. How did you come to that point?

@chrismessina The app is pricey when you compare it to a freemium game or a $0.99 utility app. With Focus, you're not buying entertainment for a couple hours though. You're buying a tool that could create a habit that might save your or your kid's life one day. I don't have kids myself, but I do have a wife that has a nasty habit of using her phone while she's driving. Would I pay $10 once to know that she's not using her phone while driving? Absolutely. (I might be a bit biased though :-)

Kevin is a phenomenal developer and that's something that really shines with Focus. I've been testing this app for a few weeks now and have noticeably reduced the amount of time I spend even touching my phone while driving. The app is really cool in that it will progressively yell at you the more you use your phone while driving. The more you use it, the more forceful the suggestions are. Things like "what would your parents think if they saw you doing this right now" "You're putting yourself and others in danger." Much needed app, especially for younger drivers. Well done. A++

@torbahax Thanks Andrew! I'm sure you hate the sound of my voice right now because you associate it with nagging you to put your phone down :-)
