Teacher Review

Focusbooster focuses on the Pomodoro Technique (which alternates 25-minute long working blocks with short breaks) in order to maintain sustainable, long-term productivity. What is the Pomodoro Technique? The Pomodoro Technique® is a simple way to boost your productivity when performing mind-consuming tasks. It helps you keep yourself focused while reducing mental exhaustion. Read more about it at the official website. And while there are plenty of different Pomodoro timers out there, one of my favorites is the Focusbooster App. The reason being is it is free, has a very clean and simple to understand user interface, and it works.

It is developed for professionals who want to store a time record for billing customers. This app has emerged as the very supportive tool for students and teachers- who want to monitor their homework, research, study. Its dashboard reminds you for a break and keeps time record to boost your productivity. 

Focus Booster is a gentle nudge wrapped into a lightweight little app that'll help you keep on track with your tasks.

**The pomodoro technique**
Using a pomodoro timer will recalibrate your productivity. The best part is, the technique is simple, here is how to get started;

1. Choose a task to work on
2. Start a pomodoro session (25 minutes is the recommended length)
3. Work through the session, avoiding all distractions (it helps to turn off things that are likely to distract you, emails, other apps, or just hit airplane mode)
4. Take a 5-minute break; refresh, move, get caffeine
5. Do this three more times and you have completed your first pomodoro (name for a group of 4 sessions), well done!

While remaining very simple, we give you the ability to choose the way you work;
