Helps you focus on your work.
Focus helps you concentrate on your work by helping you break the habit of sidetracking while working online.
- (2017-06-28) Maia Hamann: This app is based on the Pomodoro method of working for 25 minute periods, but it only times the work periods, not breaks. At the end of each session, you assess the intensity of your focus and indicate which sites visited during the work period were distractions and you are awarded points based on your self-assessment. I find that the points system helps me to be more aware of my focus and distractions and it also helps to motivate me. The only things I would change or add to this extension are 1) the ability to change the length of a work session or the ability to pause a work session, and 2) some analysis of the statistics collected in each session, such as a graph. On the whole, this has been a very helpful tool for me!
