Want to be more productive, and have more fun doing your work?

Ever find that distractions, interruptions, and daydreaming make it hard to stay 100% focused on one task at a time - from start to finish?

As a person who experiences these problems at work, I created SPRINTS to help me focus, and I use it every day. In fact, SPRINTS was used to accelerate its own development.

SPRINTS is a one-of-a-kind productivity tool that uses a countdown timer and spoken voice reminders to keep you focused on the task at hand.


SPRINTS is for you, if:

* You would enjoy making a game of getting more done in less time.=
* You find that social media, emails, and interruptions distract you and reduce your efficiency.
* You often fall into the trap of "multitasking" - jumping from task to task without finishing each first.
* You like tools and productivity hacks that boost your effectiveness.


How to use SPRINTS

1. Plug in headphones, and play music that gets you in the zone. Baroque and classical music have been shown to improve focus.
2. Choose a task that would normally take you 5-30 minutes. (Break larger projects into smaller 5-30 minute tasks).
3. Set a clear objective and an even more-aggressive time limit. Could there be a way to finish this 20-minute task in 10 minutes? Strategize on paper or device (I use Evernote) and think through the steps.
4. Start your Sprint! SPRINTS will remind you about the time remaining.
5. Use the Daily High Scores for motivation. Successful Sprints award more points. Can you beat yesterday's score?

**NOTE: SPRINTS provides audio reminders when the app is running in the background. To hear the audio reminders, make sure your device's mute switch is not enabled, and that the volume is set to your liking.


SPRINTS Features

* Name your Sprint objective, and set the timer.
* Audio notifications remind you how much time is left, even when the SPRINTS App is closed.
* A Scoring system rewards you for successful Sprints, and provides motivation.
* SPRINTS saves your scores and results so that you can review them later.
