Boost your productivity with FocusNow

As a freelancer myself, I get all my work done on a laptop or PC. Very often I get stuck on distracting websites like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. I don’t do anything special, I just stare in the screen to see if there is anything new or interesting, while I simultaneously work on an article, project or some design. This is draining my time and ruining my productivity. Well, my life completely have changed with Focus Now.

FocusNow is a productivity app for Windows that will enable you to block the sites that are taking your attention. Actually you can block both, online and offline distractions. Using the different modes, you won’t be able to access your favorite websites and programs. This will make you to focus on the task you need to get done and it will definitely enhance your productivity.

Focus Now is extremely easy to use. There are 3 different work modes. The first one is called Work Block Mode and it will enable you to block websites and apps for a specific amount of work time. The Pomodoro will enable you breaks at 25 minutes (you can change this in Settings) intervals, all with the simple goal to relax and rest. The Schedule will give you the ability to set your own schedules depending on your work rhythm and duties.

The app is light, easy to use and it is packed in a small Window that you can easily control. When your time of blocking the apps and websites expires, the app notifies you instantly.

Focus Now is great idea with the perfect realization. I am sure that many people who get their job on the computer will appreciate it. FocusNow is a small, but very powerful tool that can boost your productivity significantly!
