Focus 4.5: New notification styles, redesigned preferences and new privacy controls



Focus 4.5 brings new features and improvements to the Mac. New notification styles make it easy to work in fullscreen apps and interact with Focus without leaving what you're working on. The redesigned preferences provide a clear and beautiful way to set your preferred settings and provide Touch Bar support for the most important actions. With the new privacy controls you have full access and control over everything we store for you in iCloud.

Default Notification Style 
When a session finishes, the Focus main window comes up, giving you the opportunity to choose what to do next. The app icon starts to bounce and a system notification will appear, too.

System Notifications Only
Only a system notification will inform you about the finished session and offers some options on what to do next. This is great for working in fullscreen or when using just the Focus Mini menu bar item.

Fullscreen Notifications
A notification that floats atop everything else and blocks the entire screen until you've decided what to do. This is great if you easily miss notifications or just want to have a glaring reminder that the session is up.


New Privacy Controls

We are not in the business of selling your data. Everything is computed on device and we only store what's necessary to sync your data across your devices. To do that, we use iCloud. With Focus 4.5 you now have complete control over that data and can download or delete everything right from the app's preferences.
