  • What can I say? Jun 6, 2018

    By vegandude
    Before Focus, I was short, fat, and bald. Now with Focus, I'm tall, lean, and have a full head of hair. But really, I did the trial a while back, and opted not to pay. Then, heard it mentioned again on a podcast, decided not to be cheap and go with a paid subscription. It wasn't easy as I had listened to podcasts all day and I still miss my podcasts but I definitely feel that it's made great improvements on my ability to focus. I set the timer for 35 minutes and do my best to stand there and work. I have a standing desk. Ok, so do the trial, and if you can afford it, just go with the paid subscription and test out the various sounds to find the one that works for you as some I love and others I totally hated. And sometimes I'll switch up just for a change of pace. Get Focus and you'll be better able to focus if you can only get that person in the cubicle next to you to shut up about Trump.

    Content is very helpful for focus for me and my child with ADHD. Some of the calmer stations are also good for meditation. App is a nice, non-distracting interface.

    I have been using focus@will for quite a while. I think I am now paying for my 3rd year. I don't think I have ever stuck with the same thing so long. I use this app any time I need to focus and be productive. It really calms me and lets me be my best productive self. I find I am not only more productive but that the quality of my work improves. I can also share a funny story about my teenage son. He had a report due by midnight one day. He "worked" on it all day getting no where. Finally at 10pm I lost it and decided I would sit in the room with him until he finished. Again no focus!(he has ADHD). Finally out of desperation I pulled out this app and played the music. He fought with me that he did want to hear it, etc. Comically within 10 minutes he was turned towards his computer and writing. It was like a switch had been flipped. He wrote for 1.5 hours straight and turned in his paper on time. Now he asks for "that" music when he needs to get things done.

  • Good music for deep work Sep 5, 2019

    By Bshev
    I’ve used this app for about 3 years. I typically use it when grading papers or longer assignments. Sometimes I also use it when reading. During those 3 years the team has continuously worked to improve the functionality of the app. I love that there is a phone and Mac app. The interface continues to improve its display offering some interesting images. One of the best features is a productivity tracker that allows you to see how much work you completed. I find this helpful. I do enjoy the music— especially alpha chill, focus spa, ambient, acoustic piano and guitar and classical. Even some of the ambient sounds are nice, but not that conducive for my work. Regardless I find it helpful when I settle in for long periods of work. My only wish is that they would obtain some additions music for the stations or develop some new channels— in particular I would like to see a dub channel or downtempo channel.

    Crashes after every timed session and won't let me log my productivity. I'm evaluating the free trial and this is making me hesitant to subscribe. Emailed support and have yet to hear back.

    Was using the free app to evaluate it before I paid the subscription, was liking it, but then in the middle of me being focused on my work the music stopped. A voice came on to tell me to buy premium (this was only after about a half hour of listening) and derailed my entire session. Now I can't listen to the free version anymore because I anticipate a stop in music and a voice coming on at all times. The evaluation version has become unusable to me, before I could decide if I want to buy it.

    I want to like this app and I keep trying. In the end it's about a 3.5 star product with negative 1.5 star service. No one responded on live chat when I tried to reach them for a simple customer service question. Email responses are slow, garbled and miss the point. This app should, and could be, world class and developers seem to be working to make sure it will never succeed.

  • Endless distracting frustration Mar 30, 2019

    By Rabrat
    I’m starting to wonder if this is a real app. I created an acct and selected a subscription but it keeps showing an error. When I try to reselect a subscription, it says I’m already subscribed. When I login, it says my subscription is not completed and I’m back to the subscription selection screen. I verified my email. I deleted and redownloaded. I made a new acct. I got an email saying I must have gotten distracted and not finished completing my subscription....?!?! WELL NOT FOR LACK PF TRYING. But I gave it a shot and clicked the link and it wanted me to select ANOTHER subscription from a different list with lower prices only instead of subscribing through my Apple ID, this one requires a credit card. WTH?! At this rate, I can only hope it isn’t charging me every time it sends me on another subscription selection Wild goose chase for the ever elusive focus that I’ve yet to find. Thanks for nothing, I guess. Super bummed.

    This app is almost great, for what it is and what it offers. But for claiming to be an ADD app, it is TERRIBLY implemented. I get that building quality apps is hard, but this one needs *so much* work. First, an app for helping ADD people shouldn't glitch/freeze and stop playing music every few seconds. This one does. It's the definition of distracting, and is completely opposite of the intentions of this app. The pauses seem to be related to the screen locking, or notifications coming in. UPDATE: The app is most buggy when it is plugged into the power adapter. It pauses the music almost constantly when plugged in.

    Just what I have been looking for! This app works great with no buffering issues. Many channels to choose from to play in the background to help you focus, and you can also choose the 'energy' level of the music. I used to use BrainFM, which was nice when it works, but it hasn't worked in over a YEAR, so have been looking for a replacement, and this is even better. Also reached out to Focus@Will for help, and they replies very quickly and offered amazing support! 5-star app for sure!

  • Neuroscience experts need to hire a user interface expert Apr 7, 2019

    By MikeKDidit
    I believe the neuroscience part of this works. I put on the music and I stay focused. Very good. Sold! I’m a lifetime subscriber. But the user interface needs work. It slows me down. Please invest in a user interface expert. A few examples: - The tour won’t seem to go away permanently. Why? - Alarms interrupt the tune. If I’m using my session as a timer, restarting interrupts the flow since I now have to set a different alarm to get to my meeting on time. - Please let me pause without changing the tune. I promise not to abuse it. - I never want to be asked about productivity. I just want it to let me go again. If I don’t like the tune, I will skip it. - Picking a channel is confusing. On the channel picker page (not sure the official name), aren't Labs channels? Aren't Favorites channels?I suggest renaming the Channels tab to something like Regular (or Proven or Official or Popular or Standard or Normal or Live). - Picking a channel takes too long to get back to music. Need to be able to quickly get back to Player from the channel picker screen. Or, just add a Play arrow to the channel picker screen. - On the channel picker page, please put the Favorites tab first. - Why can't I change the energy level from the player screen? - Why is there still an Oct Beta Test in April? Where is the beta for Nov? Dec? Jan? Feb? Mar? #JustSharing

  • It pays for itself many times over every day. Nov 1, 2017

    By LeisureSuitLarry9
    I measured my productivity with focus@will vs playing other music in background. F@W is hands down winner. It is better than pomadoro apps because the music is geared toward work and constantly changing so it does not become familiar. Better than just background music because no fiddling around looking for what I want to hear. I don’t really “hear” F@W per se, it just plays and masks distractions. Why four stars vs five? I play it on iPad linked via Bluetooth to a nice stereo system. There is no volume control on the iPad user interface so a conversation with a client causes me to go fumbling around for volume button on edge of iPad. Also - it would be extremely useful to know how many complete sessions I have accomplished during the day. For example, a number displayed on the UI saying 9 would tell me I got in 9 sessions so far today.

  • Really helpful, requires frequent restarts Jul 13, 2018

    By RockinDocRoss
    I’ve been using F@W for about a month and bought the annual subscription. When I’m using it, I do find that the time goes by and I see that I’ve stayed on task almost without fail. As an independent consultant on billable hours, productivity is essential. I recently went off Adderall bc of related health concerns and have needed an alternative. I’m a life-long musician but don’t usually listen to music while working. The guide for selecting a channel steered me to Alpha and that seems to be just interesting enough to keep that part of my brain active but just uninteresting enough not to be a distraction. Now to get it to turn itself on! One challenge - it sometimes gets stuck and won’t do another round of timed focus. A simple restart works but I don’t know why it’s failing. Otherwise 5 stars and worth the investment.

  • Helpful for Studying Oct 17, 2018

    By DeRangoA
    Focus@will helps me focus while I’m studying. It might take a few tries to find the right channel/mood to fit your workflow, but it’s worth it to keep trying to find something you like. I think the productivity tracker is a great idea but it could be improved. Instead of only adding a percentage to rate your productivity, it would be helpful to have the option to add a note next to your session. That way you could record what you were working on, how much you got done, and/or any distractions that got in your way. It’d be a lot more useful to look back on later than just the percentages. Thanks for the great study tool!

    Too expensive. Plus, the ADHD playlist seems counterintuitive and didn’t seem to work for me. Though in all fairness, I only tried it two or three times during the limited trial due to my schedule. But yeah, 3 stars sums this app for me.

  • Maintains focus as promised, but app needs to be more robust May 29, 2018

    By Keggman12
    As an adult with ADD, I struggle to focus. A coworker turned be on to this service (and this related app) and it has been amazing for my productivity. Somehow the music and tones in this app keeps me on task as good as meds have in the past. I believe in this service enough to have bought the lifetime subscription. But the iOS itself leaves some to be desired. I don’t, for example, understand why it requires an internet connection? I like to put my phone in offline mode while I study or work or on an airplane, and that breaks the app. Why not download and cache the songs? Also, you can’t pause the timer, and the only time you can record your productivity is when the timer expires without interruption. My phone rang during a study session which caused the timer to restart and a missed opportunity to record my productivity. It also caused the song to restart. If developer can address those issues which I consider to be basic, I’d give this app 5 stars all day every day.

  • 3 stars for the App/ F@W service 4 Stars Jul 16, 2018

    By NY_chef
    6 weeks using F@W and the app. I’m not 100% sold that “the music “ works, but I’m less of a skeptic then when I first signed up. On a few occasions I’m definitely more productive/ focused but can’t tell if it’s the music or not? I don’t see any improvement in creativity or the creative mindset. I contacted support about this they said it takes time. I’m willing to give it a few more weeks or even months before I make my final decision. That sad the app needs some work, it’s a bit glitchy, especially when hooked up to another device ( car doc). Hooked up via Bluetooth in my car it cuts off when my screen shuts off, sooo basically completely useless if not hooked up with a cable. Not 100% sure it’s the app but on some Devices I have trouble linking the app threw Bluetooth. In a nut shell developers need to fix Bluetooth issues for the mobile app

  • Fatal app flaw - resets song every time! Feb 18, 2020

    By TheyCalMeTrinity
    While I enjoy streaming the chill music to focus while working on my desktop AND via the mobile app, the iOS app will reset the whole session/song anytime there is an interruption in playback: my AirPod pops out, you get a call, etc. Their support people just say that is by design and you should start a brand new season with ANY interruption. Give me a break - let ME be the judge of how I work best and let me continue my “flow” if I want - this happens all the time: 1. great music playing 2. Phone call comes in 3. New song starts completely different tempo and ruins my flow! This is the first time I’ve found a company arrogant enough to flat out admit the won’t put in an easy feature since they know better. Well, food luck with that attitude!

    it's great when it works, but that isn't too often Unfortunately, I didn't find a way to preload the music, which means when you have unstable internet, it just stops playing form time to time. It crashes randomly, for instance when I connect my bluetooth headphone while the app is open, it crashes and I need to restart it. And tracking the focus sessions also doesn't seem to work, maybe because it finishes every session with a crash? Definitely over priced for the quality, too bad, back to spotify I guess
