Any.do was designed to help you organize your life and get more done. But, being productive can be difficult with so many distractions around you.  That’s why we created Focus Mode, a  simple and fun way to keep you concentrated on what’s important!

To use Focus Mode, you must be a Premium User . When using the Focus Mode, you set a timer for the task you want to complete and while it’s counting down, you’re growing a tree on your phone. If you get distracted and try to open up a game or another app on your phone, the tree will die and you don’t want that! The more time you invest on your tasks, the more trees you’ll add to your forest, making it a powerful visual motivator. You may even activate a white-noise option and view your forest to see how much progress was done.
