Focused takes an interesting approach to productivity by allowing you to construct purpose-driven music playlists from the tracks on your iPhone and iPad in order to suit your moods, working style, and environment.
I’ve always found music to be very distracting when I’m trying to work but those of you who find that it helps your mojo flow a little easier will definitely enjoy this app so be sure to check it out if you’d like to learn more.
What we have here is an interesting app in the Productivity category of the App Store that has been designed to help you increase your focus and productivity by creating playlists from the music in your iTunes music library.
One thing I really like about this approach is that it takes the song durations into consideration so you can effectively structure your work periods and ensure you are taking plenty of short breaks on a frequent basis.
Labels can also be added to your work periods for further personalization.

Focused will provide you with an alert when it is time for you to take a break, and if you’re of the clock-watching persuasion then you can also prevent your screen from locking so that you can keep an eye on the time.

There is nothing negative to say about this app
Specify your work music
I actually really like the concept behind Focused, but I’m more a fan of the structured approach to work and time management rather than the music so I think I’ll stick with e.ggtimer for the time being.
