Review by Snarkclaw

Excellent Distraction Eliminator - I love this application. There are two changes I wish for, though. At the time that I bought OneFocus, it had a blacklist approach: you selected the apps you wanted to block. Shortly after my purchase came an update that switched to a whitelist approach: you have to select the apps you want to exempt from the block. This is a bit frustrating for me, for two reasons: 1) If I install an app during a block duration, then I cannot whitelist the app and start using it. Newly installed apps are blocked by default. 2) Some apps I have essentially get replaced when updated, so are considered new by OneFocus... meaning I have to regularly maintain the whitelist, lest an app I previously whitelisted be included in the block. So, my first wish is that it had its recent blacklist approach, or at least had that as an option. My second wish is that I could set a schedule for block times. Before I made the purchase, I wrote the developer (who is quite nice and responsive) about that, and he said that scheduling is a planned future feature. I look forward to it. :-) In this review, I mostly complained about this application, which is misleading. OneFocus is a wonderful, lightweight, must-have of a program that definitely helps me focus when I need to by reducing my options for distraction. :-)

Review by Disappointed3897

This app is not intuitive or user friendly - After paying for and downloading this app, I was excited to give it a go after reading the reviews. However, after installing it on my MacBook Pro (just recently purchased the newest model), the app won’t open or run. I sent an email to the email address indicated for “Support” for this app over 10 days ago and have gotten no reply. After delving through the various folders in the Focus1 app application folder, I was able to find what I believe is supposed to be the appropriate script editor. Not really intuitive to get to or easy to operate or understand how to use. And with no support, it’s an even bigger frustration.
