Our Story

When we were university students a few years ago, we often felt that it was difficult to start working on a new thing, block everything else out, and stay motivated over a long period of time. We tried several approaches and different apps. Although they were interesting in their own way, none were really effective.

Today, the idea to create a tool that would help people be more productive has become the driving force behind our work.

With Focus, we set out to build a solution that not only helps you manage your time, but also lets you organize your work and offers in-depth insights of your progress.

The first version of Focus was released December 2013 on the Mac App Store. After a very positive initial launch and several App Store features, Focus for iOS was released in April 2015 with support for the first Apple Watch. In late 2017 Focus received it’s biggest update yet with an all-new design, faster performance and improved support for new features in hardware and software.

Designed to support your daily work routine, we are especially proud that Focus runs on all Apple platforms, keeps everything in sync, and offers a great experience.

We hope for Focus to improve people’s work life and ultimately make them more productive.
