FocusCoach - Time Management Tool

Tap.Tap.Ideas
[ This app is no longer available for download ]

FocusCoach is a time management.

The goal is to divide your tasks into smaller components (e.g., 25-minute units) called work units and to work through them without interruption. After each step, there is a short break.

The result is that your focus is channeled into individual tasks and that your mental resiliency constantly improves.

THIS IS HOW IT WORKS:
1. Create a task and break it down into work units
2. Start the timer for 25 minutes
3. Work on that task without stopping
4. When time is up, stop for 5 minutes
5. Start the next work unit by restarting the timer, etc.

After every fourth work unit, you take a longer break.


ADVANTAGES
FocusCoach takes over the logging of work units and pauses for you. The timer helps you to concentrate on just one task within a given time frame. The recorded data show, for example, how much you accomplished today compared with yesterday or the week before. And at the same time, you can constantly monitor and improve yourself!
