Block distractions & improve your productivity with Focus.

Facebook? Twitter? Reddit? Messenger? 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 your optimal work environment.

Website & App Blocker for Mac

Focus is an Internet blocker and can block any website with precision.

This makes it easy to block an entire website or just a page. You can even use the powerful allowed sites feature to block the entire Internet (or just allow a few pages).

Focus is also a powerful application blocker and can block applications on your computer like Slack, Skype or distracting games like Civilization.

Productivity app that lets you motivate yourself

Getting Motivated to be Productive

Getting back on track after you're distracted can be tricky, which is why Focus shows an inspirational quote to put you back in a productive mindset.

Dozens of inspiring quotes are shipped by default, but you can always customize and add your own to personalize your motivation.

"Action is the foundational key to all success." — Pablo Picasso

Block websites and apps during certain times

Put your Productivity on a Schedule

Be more productive by scheduling your productivity ahead of time and building a habit. Focus makes it easy to setup daily, weekly or weekend schedules (and to enforce them).

If schedules aren't your thing, Focus has a pomodoro timer, a productivity technique of breaking work into small chunks to improve flow and mental agility.

And don't worry, if you need a break, Focus can allow up to a certain amount of time every day. Over time, using Focus this way helps you build your discipline and self control.

Schedule Mode is a Focus Professional and Focus Expert feature

Make Focus really hard to stop

Unstoppable Productivity

Sometimes procrastination creeps in and we need some extra help staying on task.

Focus can enforce schedules and timers, which means when they're running, they cannot be stopped.

Focus also offers password protection, requiring a password to change any preferences. This is for use with a trusted friend.

Be careful, these modes once engaged cannot be stopped!
