Block distractions & improve your productivity with Focus.
Facebook? Reddit? IM? These services are great, but getting stuff done can be hard when they're one click away.
Wouldn't it be great if there was a way to quickly create your ideal work environment on your computer?
In the real world, it's easy to close the door or put on some headphones. But blocking out distractions on a computer is harder. We socialize and entertain ourselves on the same computers where we work. Interruptions make it hard to get into a state of flow.
Focus is a Mac menu-bar app that helps you find your zen. One click creates an optimal work environment.
Website & app blocker for Mac
Focus is a Mac app that blocks distracting websites (like Facebook and Reddit) on all browsers (Safari, Chrome and Firefox).
Focus can also block other Mac applications like Twitter, Skype or Mail.
Productivity app that lets you motivate yourself
When a distracting website is blocked, a motivational quote is shown to get you back on track and improve your productivity.
Dozens of inspiring quotes are provided, but you can customize the message to personalize your motivation.
Block websites at key times
Use the timer in Focus as a pomodoro timer to break down work into small intervals (usually 25 minutes) and improve mental agility.
Or pre-schedule blocks of productivity during the day when you know you want to get work done.
Block websites from your terminal
Focus has powerful scripting capabilities so you can control it from your terminal or other apps entirely.
Create custom workflows that integrate with other apps like Alfred, pomodoro timers, time trackers and more.
Whitelist or blacklist websites
Block a few distracting websites or do the reverse—only allow a few websites you know you'll need.
Need an extra push to stay focused?
Enable hardcore mode so once a timer or schedule has started, it can't be stopped or changed (even if you quit the app). Be careful, this can't be undone!
Instantly get in the zone from any application with a global hotkey you can configure (by default it's control+option+command+f).
Get in the zone with 1-click
Focus can't force you to work and that's not its goal.
Focus helps you create your ideal environment with 1-click, so you can get high quality work done.
