Hey hey! šŸ‘‹

ā€‹

It's been a crazy but action-packed month for Focused Work, and with WWDC (the big yearly Apple developer conference) around the corner next week I have my šŸ¤ž for some great iPadOS and Mac Catalyst improvements!

ā€‹

iPadOS home screen widgets are near the top of my want list, but an overhauled multitasking environment is #1. I'd love to display a small PiP-style Focused Work timer while the app is in the background and be able to automatically trigger on-device Shortcuts also while in the background.

ā€‹

Speaking of Shortcuts, macOS 12 adding support for them is definitely #2 on my list!

ā€‹

Anyway, without further ado here's what's new in the Focused Work 1.7 update that went live today! šŸ™‚

ā€‹

ā€‹

ā€‹

Full optimisation for the new iPad Pro with Liquid Retina XDR Display! šŸš€

ā€‹

šŸŒžšŸŒš Follow the system theme, manually select Light or Dark Mode, or pick the new Pure Black Dark Mode theme which displays pure black backgrounds.

ā€‹

ā€‹

ā€‹

ā±šŸ“Š Theme selection also extends to the Home Screen widgets!

ā€‹

Long-press to select from Light, Dark, Pure Black, and Completely Black themes, that perfectly blend in with a dark Home Screen or Today View cut-out. ā¬›ļø

ā€‹

ā€‹

ā€‹

āœļø Add notes to Focus Session templates that give each session more context beyond the Title and Icon.

ā€‹

Access them mid-session via the Session Progress screen.

ā€‹

ā€‹

ā€‹

šŸ–¼ Translucency has been added to the macOS app.

ā€‹

The Current Session screen now displays a translucent background that blends in nicely with your desktop wallpaper.

ā€‹

ā€‹

ā€‹

ā³ Optionally log an extra stage when a session goes over-time, and keep track of additional Break time or Focused Work.

ā€‹

ā² Tasks are now supported if you are apart of a Toggl Track premium workspace.

Hit reply and let me know if you're enjoying the app, I'd love to know how your experience has been. šŸ™‚

ā€‹

If you also have a spare moment, leaving a quick App Store rating & review would mean the world to me - if you haven't already of course!

ā€‹

Climbing the App Store charts is hard work, and I would love to have Focused Work be presented in front of more people looking for a helpful and flexible focus timer. Tap here on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac to directly open the App Store page, or search for Focused Work in the App Store.

Lastly, thank you for staying in the loop with Focused Work, and happy dub-dub week! ā¤ļø
