Hey hey! šŸ‘‹

ā€‹

I've finally reached the day of sharing the big Focused Work productivity update that i've had planned the last couple months!

ā€‹

The update is now available on the App Store, and you can view the full What's New list here. But here's a few highlights of this update;

šŸ‘‰ An all new Productivity dashboard

šŸ‘‰ Swipe-to-duplicate focus session stages

šŸ‘‰ 30 sec. stage intervals

šŸ‘‰ Apple silicon support

ā€‹

Check out the following promo pictures I created for the tweet I shared this afternoon;

What's next šŸ‘€

This will be the last big update for Focused Work in 2020, since the App Store review team will be going on break in 10 days time. I can't believe it's already been 3 months since the app launched, and I can't wait to see where it'll end up with another 12 months worth of improvements.

ā€‹

All good things take time and effort to improve and get right, and by staying the course I'm confident great things lie ahead for Focused Work.

ā€‹

I'll be taking some time off between Christmas and the New Year to continue writing my Launching an Indie App blog series, which has since been stalled after I luckily picked up some client work to see me through for the rest of the year (I'm a freelance app developer!).

ā€‹

I still continue to journal each day, and as of sending this email it is Day 270 since I began working on the app. šŸ˜Ž

Getting behind the mic šŸŽ™

A couple weeks ago I was very fortunate to have been interviewed by Dave Wood who hosts the Waiting For Review podcast! We spoke about how I got into app development back in 2014 and the journey that led me to creating Focused Work when the pandemic reached Australia.

ā€‹

I was super nervous since this was my first ever interview, but it turned out to be a complete blast! If you're a fan of podcasts I hope you enjoy listening along šŸ˜

Lastly, I wanted to say a big thank you to everybody who in one way or another has supported Focused Work this year.

ā€‹

If you're receiving this email it means at some point you've taken a keen interest to it which I really appreciate, and hope you continue to follow along in 2021!

ā€‹

I have absolutely loved the Twitter DM's & emails people have been sending me every week, sharing their stories about how this app has improved their daily routines and highlighting their wins. ā¤ļø

Have a lovely Christmas break and catch ya in the new year! šŸ™‚
