New features

Version 2.2.0 was released on Nov 20th. Below is a list of all the features we added

Mandatory log in

Like many other time tracking apps it is now manadatory for you to log in. We are essentially a cloud service, with the bonus of a desktop app, so as we offer new plaforms and services log in is going to be important! This improvement also gives us the ability to connect focus booster to other tools and products in the future.

New free plan limits

Previously the focus booster free plan was limited to 3 days data retention, but now we will be limiting our new Starter plan (which is free) to 20 session per month. Which is great because now you will have access to all your historical data.

Creating an account

Please note because everyone using v2.2.0 will now have to sign in to use focus booster, you will need to create an account if you don't already have one.

Auto suggest labels

No need to look back through your timesheets to find out what you labelled the last session, these auto suggest labels are also filterable in the session report.

Create clients in the timer

New clients can now be created on the fly in the timer, no need to go to the client tab in the web app.

Turn clients and revenue off

A great new feature for those not using focus booster with an hourly rate.

Clients and labels are no longer mandatory

You can save sessions without assigning a client and/or a label for more flexibility.

New plans

We have introduced three plan levels. The Professional plan for those who do a lot of sessions or use clients and revenue. The Individual plan for those doing less than 200 sessions per month. The Starter plan for those learning the pomodoro technique, this is our free plan offering with 20 sessions per month.

Extended free trial

All new sign-ups will be receiving a free 30 day Professional Plan trial of focus booster so they can get to know the product and decide what level they need.
