The original focus booster was a digital implementation of the Pomodoro Technique, more specifically that tomato timer which is so widely associated with the technique.
Now, we proudly unveil the new focus booster, which is more than just a digital timer. The creation of the focus booster web app means it is also a time tracking system that records all your sessions, a reporting system and the beginning of a client and project management system.
The Pomodoro Technique is no longer just a time management technique to us. Focus booster allows you to take the Pomodoro Technique to the next level (and beyond), using stats to improve your productivity and measure progress. It also provides users with the ability to use focus booster as a planning and organisational tool and for those of you running businesses, the ability to invoice clients using your pomodoro session data. Now the integration of focus booster is much more accessible with the mobile app coming soon.
The focus booster mission is to provide a tool to improve your productivity through time management and make it useful as a planning and organisational tool. Our desire is to let people accomplish their tasks without any distractions.
Scott, the developer behind focus booster stumbled across the Pomodoro Technique, the principles of which he thought were ace.
Scott decided to build an app to implement the technique in a way that would be useful to his fabulous but easily distracted employees (really, it was mainly for himself!). Digital was at the crux of everything the business was about, everyone worked on designing, building and managing websites, so he built an app. Seven years later, surprisingly, the app continues to grow and improve and we love the positive impact we have on people’s lives and productivity.
We are now a small team, working to continue improving focus booster. Scott is still here, coding away, with a little support from a few people but mainly Alice, to tie together the website, social and customer support. The best news is, we have been consultants and freelancers too, so we know how we want a product like focus booster to work! Drop us a line, we would love to hear your feedback.
