Focus URI / URL Scheme

This page is for developers who want to support interacting with Focus from their apps.

In addition to support for the iOS Share button, Focus has a URI scheme that developers can use to communicate with Focus from their apps. It’s currently only supported on iOS (OS X support will follow).

Schema

Here’s the schema for communicating with Things via URI:
focusapp://command?parameter1=value1&parameter2=value2

Available commands are
start-timer
open-task  (parameter 1 = task name(optional), parameter 2 = task note(optional))
add-task (parameter 1 = task name (required), parameter 2 = task note(optional))
