Did you know that 15% of 2020 is already over? ? Whether that excites you or alarms you, it’s always a great time to take stock of where you are with your goals for the year.

This year my personal focus is ?% on Focuster as I continue to build the powerful focus and time management, advanced auto-scheduling and calendar capabilities that you need.

I’m excited to share some product updates and highlight what’s coming next.

? iOS App Improvements

While the App store Release is coming by End of March, for those of you in the iOS beta program you can access these features now:

  • Mobile Action Editor, A mobile-optimized interface for managing your actions on the go.
  • Push Notifications, to recover more quickly from distractions
Focuster iOS Action Editor

? Calendar Events: All-Day & Availability

See all your events in Focuster so you don’t need to switch over to your calendar app. All-Day and events marked as free (as opposed to busy) are now displayed in the Focuster calendar.​

? ​Focuster 2020 Roadmap updates

I’m working on an update to the road roadmap and will share more details next month. Is there any area for improvement in Focuster you feel a burning desire about? Send me a message and let me know.
