Focusito: flex pomodoro timer for Mac v1.0.5
來自Mac App Store官方介紹
Focusito is?an?app for those who find it?hard to?concentrate in?a?noisy environment: office workers, students and freelancers. It?makes it?easier to?focus on?one task and to?avoid burnout.
Focusito combines two techniques: noise blocking and interval work (pomodoro timer). Noise block helps to?eliminate external concentration killers?— background noise and conversations. Interval work?— to?remain focused and avoid overworking the brain.
EXTERNAL NOISE: WHY PEOPLE WORK IN?HEADPHONES
Research shows that only hearing other people talk reduces a?person’s productivity by?66%. Noise and people talking are an?integral part of?public places?— offices, coffee shops, coworking spaces and dorms. To?be?able to?work or?study in?such places people put on?headphones and listen to?their favourite music.
The purpose of?music here is?to?mask external noise and conversations without being distracting or?annoying. There are two types of?sounds most suitable for this purpose: nature sounds and β-rhythms.
Nature sounds. These are the ones occurring in?nature: sound of?waves, rain or?leaves rustling. They are monotone and predictable, easy for the brain to??filter? and stop paying attention?to.
Binaural beats (β-rhythm). A?sound of?a?specific frequency corresponding to?the brain’s electroencephalogram (EEG) during intellectual work. It?is?believed that listening to?β-rhythms in?headphones helps the brain to?focus and enter a?flow state faster.
Binaural rhythm is?a?variation of?white noise with a?continuous pulsation effect, which is?perfect for noise masking. It?sounds unusual so?it’s convenient to?use when forming a?healthy habit. The brain gets used to?concentrating to?a?binaural rhythm and once it?hears?it, it?enters the necessary state. A?conditioned response is?thus formed.
INTERVAL WORK: WHY POMODORO TECHNIQUE IS?POPULAR
The idea of?interval work is?to?take short breaks. They allow the brain to?distance from the task for a?while and not to?lose interest. If?you work on?a?task for a?long time, the brain loses focus and starts to??sabotage? the task at?hand.
It?is?the brain’s natural defense mechanism. It?avoids overworking the following way: if?it’s focused on?an?object for a?long time, it?just starts ignoring it?and the focus shifts. To?prevent this from happening, all you need to?do?is?take two short breaks each working hour.
WHAT’S COOL ABOUT USING FOCUSITO
Interval work isn’t very effective if?you’re distracted by?external noise and conversations. In?such environment the interval work technique might not do?the trick and you won’t be?able to?get into the zone. As?a?result, the habit is?not being formed and people give up?on?the system.
The masking background sounds are good at?blocking external noise. But you can spend the whole day in?sound isolation and still do?nothing since you lack internal motivation. Blocking sounds and conversations doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll be?able to?focus on?the task.
The cool thing is?to?combine the two techniques. The sounds help to?eliminate external concentration killers?— noise and conversations. The interval work?— to?maintain the focus and not overwork the brain. These techniques complement each other well and compensate for one another’s disadvantages.

The app is?still being developed. If?you have any suggestions or?you run into a?problem, contact?me at:

n this version we’ve added statistics: now you can see how many intervals you do per day and whether you meet the goals you set.
The completed intervals can be renamed and deleted. In the future, we’ll turn the statistics into a proper task-manager.
Daily statistics is available to everyone. But the work history is a part of Focusito Pro.
So far the Pro version includes statistics only but we’ll be adding more and more stuff with each new version. The next in line are new sounds, presets and more binaural rhythm settings.
With all suggestions, email us at [email protected]
