    The Pomodoro technique sounded like something that would be too easy for me to ignore while using it, but having the timer is surprisingly effective. Focus Keeper is great at what it does!

    You know how stressful IB exams can be and burn outs are your worse enemy, this app was my savior. It prevented me from burning out and keep my motivation up during studying sessions. Love it!

    I use my headphones to study and usually listen to background white noise. The first time I used Focus Keeper I had my volume up so the white noise could have the desired effect. When the first bell went off after my 25 minute focus period, the bell was so loud (75% on iPhone) I jerked my headphones off and my ears were in pain for a few seconds. Irritated, I went to the setting to lower the volume and noticed it is blocked on 10 for the free version. It’s not lost on me that the bell is an unpleasant metallic clank sound that blasts your ears off and that it cannot be remedied without buying the pro version. I find that somewhat distasteful and I find the developers to be manipulative in that aspect. I’m less likely to purchase the pro version because I sense the user is punished for using the free version.
  • Use it daily, but...

    This app is in my top-5 most used apps, easily. But I’m not buying the paid model and here’s why: disguising up-sell features as ‘options’ isn’t clever, it’s dishonest.

    I'm not sure if it was my hard-of-hearing mother blasting the radio or my ADHD, but this didn't help me focus at all!
