This software is a life changer for me, without any exaggeration. Other block software are often very easy to circumvent. Focusme actually blocks the sites/apps every time and has great features, for example, you have to input a certain amount of characters to stop the block. This is great because you really don't want to put in the characters as it takes a long time, so you won't just stop the block immediately. But at the same time you do have the option to stop the block in case of an urgent matter. This allows you to set very strict blocks and still have the possibility to change it afterwards, but not too easily! This is an almost perfect solution that I haven't really seen on other block softwares. Thank you so much to FocusMe! Without this software I would maybe be able to get done half as much as I get done right now (probably even less). Digital distractions - social media, tiktok, youtube, are the poison of today and you should limit yourself quickly so that you can become the 100% version of yourself, instead of a 30-50% version of yourself.
With the ever looming dangers of internet addiction and procrastination, in my view every computer and smartphone should come with blocking and time scheduling options. As they currently don't, Focus Me is by far the best option available to meet this need. It offers a truly wide range of possible features and ways to costumize it for your individual use and with its impenetrable security locks you can make sure you do indeed stay on the track you intended. A truly robust and reliable app, with the best part of it being the ever helpful support team, who are working daily to implement new features and solve costumer queries in order to make an already excellent application even better. It is also available at a lower rate than it probably should be for what it offers to the user.
FocusMe is amazing! If you have a hard time focusing on online work and get distracted easily you need Focusme. FocusMe forces you to work by blocking apps and websites that you choose. What is great about FocusMe is that if you set it up correctly it will be virtually impossible to uninstall. So it forces you to get work done. 10/10 - Buy if you are a procrastinator and need help!
This is by far the best app I've used. If like my old self, you are spending too much time on ... whatever (reading the news/sports/youtube/social media/emails etc.) either during work or during your family time, this one is for you. I've tried so many other apps to restrict myself, but they weren't close to FocusMe. Both in the functions it enables you (such as 10 minutes of news every hour, or 1 hour of youtube per day, or no amazon during working hours), and in letting you decide beforehand whether the block would be circumventable and to what degree. I also discussed it with my 12 year old son, who was happy to install it on his computer and set a daily 1 hour limit to minecarft. It's not cheap, but I got my money's worth back within a day or two. If that not enough, their support is extraordinary. I sent the support a few emails and they always got back to me within a day, with detailed explanation and solved every problem I had, and then followed it up to make sure that they solved my problem. I strongly recommend.
The Best Application for Managing Digital Distractions Wow! Where should I start? I've been constantly searching in these two years for finding a complete solution that could really help me manage my digital distractions and focus on my daily life routines, most applications are either not effective enough, so easy to circumvent or very resource-intensive, then I found FocusMe! 1) It has everything I was searching for, most applications are not effective enough, some are just browser extensions, have a few options and not customizable enough, with FocusMe I can easily create very flexible plans to: a) Destroy bad habits and create good ones. For example block Internet at a certain time of night to help me sleep at a certain time each night. This has helped my insomnia a lot and my sleep times are getting regulated now. b) Block unnecessary and possible harmful contents completely. For example, it may be a personal choice but I choose to block online adult contents for most weekdays, which has helped my brain to regulate my dopamine system tremendously. c) Time limit other contents during work days, Contents that are useful but can also easily waste a lot of your daily time if not careful enough, like emails, news, social media... 2) Most other applications can be circumvented easily, if you have a little computer knowledge, most of these applications are useless, but FocueMe! OMG! It goes to great lengths to make sure you stick to your plan, when you create and start a plan, you can't cheat it! You can even create punishment if you try to bypass your plan, to restrict your access more which can prevent any kind of future cheatings. It is evident that FocusMe creators really love what they do and really pay attention to details, which is what distinguishes this from most other similar applications. 3) Some other applications are very resource-intensive, you can see in windows task manager that they swallow all of your computer resources or even slow down your web surfing/loading experiences which makes them useless, because no one wants to have a slower computer just to have an application to control his/her daily habits, but when I use FocusMe, there are no computer/web surfing slow downs and also the resource consumption is minimal which also makes this software a great choice. 4) Last but not least, FocusMe has a superb support system, you never feel alone on your path to more success and focus, they are always there for you answering your questions and always updating the software to newer greater versions. Let me emphasize this point: I don't know how I could live without this application and I wished I had found it sooner! Those that are searching for applications to help them live a healthier life know what I mean if they read my explanations above. It took me two years to find you, FocusMe! I would give you 10 stars if I could! After all these years, I finally feel in control of my life and my time, Thank you.
