Focus Focus is a Mac app that helps you take back your productivity.

Tracking Time

Focus is the best Mac Timer App because it combines distraction blocking with the best productivity techniques.

Focus is the best Mac app for blocking distractions, tracking time, and being productive because Focus automatically tracks time when a productivity session starts and ends.

Focus is a great minimalist tool for anyone who wants to track their time and improve their productivity, like freelancers, writers, students, programmers, designers, parents, and more.

How Focus Tracks Time

Focus tracks time for both Pomodoro timers and Focus schedules.

The time tracked is using actual time focused—which means if you start a session and end it early, only the time you focused will be tracked.

This ensures you're tracking your actual productive time, and not tracking time you're procrastinating.

Focus is a great time tracking app because it integrates distraction blocking with other productivity features to enable your best work.

How to Track Time in Focus

To get started, click the Focus icon in the Mac menu bar, then select Statistics in the drop-down menu.

Focus sits in your menubar to be quickly accessible, but otherwise stay out of the way.
