Tom is a friendly bear, except when you can not concentrate. He will do his best to help you focus on something! Just place your screen face down and focus on what you do. A variety of white noise will help you focus more. If you concentrate well, Tom will praise you. You can change the session time in the settings. You can reset the timer by pressing Tom's belly button. Please keep in mind that Tom can also enjoy fishing when you are focused.



  • Very useful timer!

    By R. Dunton
    I use this timer to help me stay focused while doing school work. The white noise is perfect and greatly boosts my concentration. I really like how simple and user-friendly the interface is, plus the option to customize the length of focus sessions/breaks.
  • Missing a few features...

    By April and David
    This is nice and clean but I’d like to see a few more features that Focus Keeper has though it could remain cleaner and just incorporate a few. I love the white noise feature in this though. I’d pay for an in-app purchase to add charts and a few more settings customizations. Also, needs sync and customized long break. This is the first time I think I’ve thought that an app is priced lower than it should be. By the way, I am in LOVE with the update and the added coffee grinder noise. Thank you for this app!
  • Minimalist alternative to forest

    By Mr. DmYa
    BFT has become my favorite minimalist alternative to forest! I love the ambient music / white noise. The fact that it forces me to put my phone face down for it to start and the flashlight notification is a great way to keep me focused. I’d like to see some type of gamification rewards in a future update πŸ‘πŸΌ
  • Cute

    Simple and effective. Would be cuter if the bear growled a little if you flipped before time was up!
  • I love it, just makes me sad sometimes

    Okay I love this app cause it calms me down whenever I'm stressed, but anytime I have to check my phone for the time or I get a call or something, the bear gives me a look like he's mad at me! I feel bad cause I don't want the bear to be upset at me! I just need to check something, bear! I'm sorry!!
  • simple, easy to use, & effective

    my guy i just bought this app on a whim because i only had a dollar left on my account after buying music on itunes but it was so worth the money. i'm a high school student with very severe add & i just got an over 5,000 word essay done because my boy tom helped me focus. but fr i love that it makes it so easy to follow the pomodoro method for work efficiency; it already has the timers defaultly set to sessions of working for 25 mins at a time, short 5 minute breaks, & long 20 minute breaks - THE TIMES ARE CUSTOMIZABLE THOUGH so if the default settings don't work for you, you can change them of course. but they hella work for me. the white noise (storm sounds, campfire sounds, & a few more) being /built into/ the app is also very convenient. πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ‘ŒπŸ½πŸ‘ŒπŸ½ not to mention the art is mad cute, & for those who like collecting, the app lets you collect different types of reward cards with different art & it just makes me feel warm & fuzzy inside man. i worked for 4 hours (w/ breaks included) but it went by so fast & i feel hella good & proud of myself for being able to finish that paper. it's really worth more than a dollar man like this'll have me efficiently working w/out getting distracted for life; if i had to choose between buying this app & buying a chocolate bar i'd gladly choose this app. because you know what they say, if you buy a person a fish that fish will last for one night but if you teach them how to fish, that's a skill they can use for life and they can have dinner every night. i digress, but my point is this app is more useful than a $1 chocolate bar so if you also have add or don't but need help focusing i would highly recommend buying it. πŸ™πŸ½πŸŒŸπŸ»πŸŽ£
  • Fun gimmick that hampers usability

    By Mike3292
    Requiring the phone to be facedown on the desk to start the timer is a fun gimmick, but for those of us who keep their phone charging on a stand or who don’t like their phones fragile face touching a hard desk, it makes the app needlessly difficult to use.
  • So impressed

    By Soren Oxlade
    I love apps that break thru extremely dense markets with simple innovation! So good, I’ve used all the top pomodoros apps and loved this app almost immediately! Nice job dev! Is this Unity? Very cool!
