Focus Keeper – was $1.99/£1.99, now FREE
This is a productivity app that’s been popular for years, and it’s currently available free for the first time since 2014! If you’ve not used Focus Keeper before, it encourages timed bursts of productivity with short breaks to keep you from burning out. The basic process is as follows:
1. Choose a task to be done
2. Set the timer for 25 minutes
3. Focus on the task until the timer rings
4. Take a short break (just do something relaxing for 5 minutes)
5. Once you’ve completed 4 focus sessions, take a longer break. (20~30 minutes)
It’s a tried and true method for getting things done, and if you’re one of those people who struggles to work on one task without getting distracted, it could be worth a shot. The app will also keep track of your efforts throughout the month so you can see what works best for you and tweak the timings accordingly. You can set focus goals if you want to encourage yourself to do get a certain amount done per day. Why not give it a crack while it’s free?
Please bear in mind that this discounted price is for a limited time only and could increase at any time. The App Store will always confirm the current price before download.
