No. The only thing we log is information you provide at the end of a Focus Block (what did you achieve/what were the distractions?) and when you use our quantified self feature (how many pushups did you do?).
Valid concern. If you’ve used other apps like Focus Bear, you’ve probably had them interrupt you at inappropriate times (e.g. when you’re on a video call) or be very inflexible with blocking.We’ve done our best to use the best aspects of nudge theory (i.e. a slight amount of friction will move you towards your goals) without being annoying. Focus Bear is smart enough to not pop up during video calls.We have two modes: “cuddly bear” mode and “grizzly bear” mode. In “cuddly bear” mode, it is very easy to remove app blocks and postpone breaks. In “grizzly bear” mode, you have to wait a while before you can deactivate blocks.Cuddly Bear mode is the default and you should only activate grizzly bear mode if you really want extra support.
Having an app that enforces morning and evening routines, regular breaks, and focus modes is beneficial for individuals with ADHD as it provides structure, reduces distractions, and promotes time management and productivity. Focus Bear offers reminders, accountability, and customizable features that help individuals establish consistent routines, stay focused, and take necessary breaks. It increases self-awareness, supports better organization, and fosters a sense of accomplishment, ultimately improving overall well-being and symptom management for those with ADHD.
You can have a 7 day free trial to evaluate the product. After that, we do require payment as it costs us money to run servers and pay developers to add new features and fix bugs. If $4.99/month is beyond your budget, please email firstname.lastname@example.org requesting a discount with some details about how you’d like to use the app and anything you feel comfortable sharing about your financial situation. We’d hope that if we give you a discount (and in very rare circumstances, give it away for free) that you’d help us out by telling your friends about the product on social media 🙂
There are three main types: Predominantly Inattentive Presentation, Predominantly Hyperactive-Impulsive Presentation, and Combined Presentation, which includes symptoms of both inattention and hyperactivity-impulsivity.
Symptoms usually appear in childhood, and diagnosis is typically made by a healthcare professional based on specific criteria outlined in the DSM-5 (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition).
Treatment options include behavioral therapy, medication (such as stimulants and non-stimulants), and educational or workplace accommodations. The most effective treatment often involves a combination of approaches.
