tools, it also brings us tremendous distractions. RescueTime helps you track your time on your computer and your mobile devices and identifies where you where you’re spending (ahem…often wasting) a lot of your time.

#2: Focus Booster Pomodoro App

The Focus Booster app is based on the Pomodoro Technique, which is a long-standing productivity technique that uses a timer for focused work periods, usually 25 minutes, followed by a break of 3–5 minutes. After you complete 4 work periods, you get a break of 15–30 minutes. The idea is you stay completely focused on the task during the work period. This productivity tool is a winner.

There are a lot of apps that can help you execute the Pomodoro Technique, but you can check out Focus Booster. The app is free for up to 20 sessions per month or you can pay a reasonable yearly fee for unlimited sessions and extra features.

The app keeps a time sheet for you and produces a report that allows you to track your productivity and identify ways to become even more productive.
