Comments and Ratings for Be Focused Pro - Focus Timer & Goal Tracker

Please leave me to work. (1.6.2)

Would be 5 stars if it didn’t keep asking me to rate it.

Good but missing features and annoying rating notification (1.6.2)
19/06/2017 09:18:55 3/5 By Cheesy nibles
The app is good as a timer however there is not enough customisation regarding notifications and logging distractions. The app also contiually asks for ratings which is poor form for a paid app.

Excellent (1.6.2)
07/06/2017 07:32:27 5/5 By jrchuks
Such an effective app, it has really changed the way i study !

Great app. Ratings nag is a pain though. (1.6.2)
10/05/2017 06:54:38 4/5 By G3ntleman
Does everything I want of a pomodoro timer and the UI is great. I’d give it 5 stars but it keeps nagging me to rate it after. I hope it stops now.

Great app - stop pestering me to rate it!!!! (1.6.2)
02/05/2017 09:58:21 3/5 By Firthy1972
I love the app - so much so I paid to get the add free versions. Apparently I didn;t pay enough to avoid all the pop ups continuously asking me to rate the @$£!ing app. to say this is annoying is a profound understatement. Especially for an app that is supposed to enhance productivity by increasing focus / reducing distractions!! Please stop now or I will stop using your app and ask for a refund!

The phone app is better (1.6.2)
01/04/2017 13:01:51 2/5 By m0nonoke
I had expected that the PC app with it being so expensive to be the same as the iPhone app, but its not. There are some features like being able to adjust your sessions for the graphs that isn’t available in this version. This means that if you leave the app running accidentally there is not option to amend it - which is very annoying. Also I felt that the app version is a bit easier to use than the PC version - and why can’t you sync them??? But all in all a great study product and would recommend the iPhone version.

Amazing (1.6.2)

Amazing app for increasing productivity

Simple and easy. (1.6.2)
05/02/2017 02:31:51 5/5 By Martin.L
The app works perfectly fine. Clean and simply interface. Nothing to distract you. It’s updated regularly and to keep the developer doing that, I’d say it's worth paying for the pro version. Bought the iphone app as well. Very happy bunny. Go for it — Productivity is priceless!

Good but could use some minor improvements.. (1.6.2)
31/01/2017 07:41:17 3/5 By Dimensional bloop
The app works as promised. No problems there. As per the Pomodoro tequnique it’d be very useful if the app provided a way to record interruptions and even better if those interupptions were added to the reports, unfortunatley you can’t do this. Occasionally, I have lost all my completed tasks halfway through the day which is annoying. Think it has something to do with the old free version creeping along and messing things up. Space bar starts/stops the timer which is very very very annoying when using any audio app!! I press play in logic only to find that I’ve stopped the timer two hours ago! One thing that a piad app SHOULD NEVER DO, it repeatedly ask for reviews and try to sell other apps, I find that really annoying, especailly in a productivity app, and the main reason for only three stars. I do not want to be sold stuff while I’m trying to work thanks.

Simple to use (1.6.2)
27/01/2017 05:14:31 5/5 By Mega_Bubbles
The developer has now sorted out the issues preventing the iOS version being sold, so integration to the phone app works - The timer now runs on my desktop, laptop and phone, so I’m reminded whereever I am. The key for me with Pomodoro technique is something that is simple and easy to integrate in to everyday working. This app does that - it’s interface is simple and it sits unobtrusively on the top bar. Would be good to be able to designate different types of break not just different lengths - exercise break, hydration break, social media catch-up etc

Pomodoro rating (1.6.2)

great application!

Good for time focused productivity (1.6.2)
05/01/2017 13:15:00 5/5 By stevenalexbaird
Brilliant app which makes me focus for short periods time and then having breaks. I personally do 25/5 x 3 then 25/30 and repeat that till lunch or I’ve finished. A really good way of studying.

Excellent app (1.6.2)
05/01/2017 10:52:00 5/5 By DigitalSands
Thank you for creating the app, it does its job excellently and works great with the iPad version also. It’d be nicer if it was easier to change totals done for goals as I always forget how to do this and it takes me a while to find out.

really good (1.6.2)
12/12/2016 15:53:00 5/5 By aralap
it was annoying that paying separately to mac os and ios app, but in the end of the day it’s an irraplaceable app for me. it does its job perfectly.

Super Efficient App (1.6.1)
19/11/2016 16:12:00 5/5 By NickBracko
The brilliance of this app is how minimalist it is. It sits quietly in the background, activated by a quick keyboard shortcut, and then you can watch as the timer counts down until your next five minute break. I run my own business and finding ways to focus is essential - this does the job perfectly.

A highly productive application (1.6.1)
17/11/2016 09:30:00 5/5 By Loli1989<3
This is very good for improving productivity. I am currently studying at postgrad level and the pomodoro technique style this application uses helps me focus and get things done systematically. One critique would be that the 4 sessions do not reset by day. What I mean by this is, I may have completed 3 sessions yesterday and taken 5 minute breaks each time but completed fourth today and be given a 20 minute break immediately. I would love if there was an option to reset with each day. Apart from that, flawless.

Does not work on IOS 10.9.5 (1.6)
14/11/2016 09:38:00 1/5 By Rosiepink2
i was enjoying this app but it no longer works on my machine - please advise for users like me who do not want to upgrade their IOS to the very latest version!!!

After the update I can’t even launch it anymore. (1.6)
13/11/2016 15:53:00 1/5 By __FV
Update 1.6 completely broke the app on my system.

Awesome App (1.6)
09/11/2016 11:13:00 5/5 By ivanmauricio
Beautifully designed and increased my productivity no end!

Has really helped my focus (1.3)
28/10/2016 15:03:00 5/5 By Saxham22
Rather than thinking to myself “I’ve got a mass of things to do today” and then getting little done, this really helps me. I remember hearing an England batsman saying that you don’t walk out thinking “I’m going to score 100 today” they aim to get to 10, then look at getting to 20 etc. This has really helped me. I’ll pick a task which might take an hour but do it in two ‘bites” and force myself to take the break - and my things-done-in-a-day list has really improved. Good app.

Simple to use (1.3)
25/10/2016 17:48:00 4/5 By Mega_Bubbles
The developer needs to sort out the issues preventing the iOS version being sold, as integration to the phone would be very helpful (often take my breaks away from my desktop, so need reminding when time’s up - otherwise there’s not too much point in the app). It does integrate across multiple desktops, though the time is slighly out of sync. The key for me with Pomodoro technique is something that is simple and easy to integrate in to everyday working. This app does that - it’s interface is simple and it sits unobtrusively on the top bar. Would be good to be able to designate different types of break not just different lengths - exercise break, hydration break, social media catch-up etc

Good, but annoying (1.3)
20/10/2016 16:16:00 3/5 By arias.sp
The app does what you expect, however every day it fails to notify that a pomodoro finishes because it asks you to rate the app before playing the notification sound. That’s the main reason why it’s not a 5-stars app.

Excellent (1.3)
06/10/2016 16:03:00 5/5 By FleetsR
Easy to use and does what it says- helps keep you focused.

Good but could use some minor improvements.. (1.3)

Think it has something to do with the old free version creeping along and messing things up. Space bar starts/stops the timer which is very very very annoying when using any audio app!! I press play in logic nly to find that I’ve stopped the timer two hours ago! Did I mention the space bar shortcut was annoying? The option to induce a long break would be good too. Sometimes a friend might come to see me so I need half an hour one interval earlier. Still I’m splitting hairs really, its a functional little app. One thing that a piad app SHOULD NEVER DO, it repeatedly ask for reviews and try to sell other apps, I find that really annoying, especailly in a productivity app, and the main reason for only three stars.

How to save a life (1.3)
29/09/2016 13:08:00 5/5 By Macspac
Going back to study after 25 years, while working full time and raising a family requires a lot of careful time management and it’s easy to give up when you feel overwhelmed. By organising my study time into manageable chunks I am more effective and efficient, I don’t feel stressed or overwhelmed and I seem to have more time, if that’s possible. (This review took 1/2 a Pomodoro)

It does the job. (1.3)
12/09/2016 15:36:00 3/5 By dmh650
It works well, some of the sounds could be improved but it works. It only gets three stars because it keeps nagging me to rate it. Please remove the alert, I’m trying to get some work done.

Failed - Sync data lost for last 2 months (1.3)
29/08/2016 11:13:00 1/5 By Dgsaville
I have just discovered that the last 2 months of my sync data is missing, this represents around 100 hours of work. I have also discovered that cross device syncing is unreliable - finding that the counter resets inexplicably on occasion, which I suspect is a database / sync error. I do not appreciate being harrassed for reviews, disrupting productivity. I have found, several times a week, that I have worked past a timing interval because the developer’s need to be loved interrupts the program’s timing alert. I have paid for this ‘full’ version so please accept that I will review in my own time. At the very least don’t interrupt the programme’s principle function. The ability to add amend the database entries is also frustrating. The desktop app ideally needs the option to be allowed to float in a frame on the desktop.

Very useful to focus (1.3)
22/08/2016 13:42:00 4/5 By Emfortee
I am a contractor that often works from an office at home. I find this a simple but really effective way to keep focused on the job in hand - I can literally power through things when I use this useful timer. Like others - I used the non pro version first - and really liked the alarm sound at the end of the timer….I wish this had it…if it did I would give it 5 stars! Although my settings show that it is on - it doesn’t actually work. Please fix it so it does!

Good - but stop bugging me (1.3)
12/08/2016 11:33:00 2/5 By Moriarty2302
It has limited capacity to change things (e.g. why not allow system sounds rather than the limited choice of alarm sounds in the app; setting number of pomodoros for a task is hidden (right-click) - why not make it part of the process of setting a task list; allow me to change colour of menu bar icon to b/w (the non-pro version allowed this). But the WORST thing by far is the constant nagging for ratings. This is UNACCEPTABLE in a paid-for app. It breaks the workflow, it’s annoying - more so than the adverts on the free version - and it’s tantamount to desperation on the part of the developers. If I want to rate it, I will. Don’t nag. PLEASE STOP THIS. UNTIL THIS IS REMOVED, I RECOMMEND YOU STICK WITH THE FREE VERSION - adverts are far less annoying.

No reliable alarm, hateful rating nags (1.3)
02/08/2016 11:29:00 1/5 By ep1965
Since this simply WILL NOT sound an alarm reliably it’s completely useless for the stated purpose. Plus - as others have pointed out - the contstant ratings nags are completely unacceptable.
