Hey everyone! I'm super excited to share my productivity app with all of you, with the hope that it encourages you to get more productive work done every day, as it has for me. πŸ™‚ πŸ“± What is it? Focused Work is an app for iPhone and iPad that helps you break up tasks and add structure to your day, to get more things done. It encourages you to focus and take breaks, to stay fresh and productive. Here's a quick rundown of its best features: - Create focus session timers for your tasks, with focused work, planning, and break stages - Define your focus before each session - Distraction alerts, that remind you to stay focused & take breaks - Daily productivity goals, that help you build momentum and a streak - Productivity reflection, that helps you highlight your good & bad habits - Toggl integration with project/tag support - iCloud Syncing, to switch between iPhone & iPad based on the task πŸ€” Why I made it? It started as an idea to replace a rudimentary Pomodoro chatbot a few mates and I were using. Although it gave us complete flexibility with customising timers based on the task, entering commands all the time became tiresome. I felt there was a better way to scratch this itch, and decided to create an app offering that same level of flexibility, with a first-class iOS/iPadOS experience. ➑️ What's next? After a successful beta testing period with encouraging feedback, it's great to already see Focused Work being used for a variety of daily tasks. I'm looking forward to adding Shortcuts and macOS support soon! This is also the first big project I've launched entirely on my own! Happy to answer any questions you may have. πŸ˜€

This is a very well-made app! In particular, I really find value in the focus session feature, which lets you plan multiple chunks work at once, which is something I haven't personally seen before from apps in this category. It's really useful for getting into a flow state!

@neil_jhaveri Cheers for the kind words Neil! I agree that picking the correct time structure based on the type of task is so important. Some tasks need more time to reach that flow state. 😊

This is a productivity app that I was so hooked on and I was involved in the beta test from the beginning. I just love this app so much and I already had hundreds of sessions from this app. This app was useful from the start, and it continued to improve throughout the best testing period, so can you imagine how good this app is when V1.0 released? I can't explain in words how useful this app was for me. I have long hours at work and work is gruesome, but I think the main reason why I was burnt out was because of how I worked. This app has corrected my work habit. It prevents me from working a few hours straight by managing my work time to smaller chunks and giving me refreshing breaks in between. As a result of using this app, I am more productive and not burned out. This has been a trend for me recently and I can't thank this app and Mike enough. Download this! You won't regret it!

@james_ryu1 Thank you so much for taking the punt on the app back in the Closed Beta period, James. You've given the product so much value early on. I remember you sharing that you used to work a few hours in a row, and then have a short break in between, then another few hr sprint, and felt burnt out every evening. Super glad the app has encouraged you to take care of this habit, by allowing you to create your own structure, and turn your productive efforts into something sustainable. ❀️
