Soon coming to windows 10, it enables the ever-increasing number of remote workers to maintain a higher level of focus and in turn produce their best possible work. No distractions in just one click.

The focus/planner hybrid app marries everything together into one well designed and easy to use package. It can also be used as a way to track productivity, plan your day, as well as a way to play focus music to cut out any irritating noises when working.
