Just discovered this over the last few days - highly recommended. Can block websites and applications - optional hardcore mode prevents re-access. Trial version available, developer is responsive and app is under active development. Much later versions are available that 0.9.2.

Couldn't get the hang of it. Couldn't figure out how to set it up on a schedule. And it caused my browsers to behave erratically. When I'd try to visit a black-listed site, I'd get literally dozens of Focus tabs with the little quotes on them, instead of just turning the ONE tab I'd tried to use for Reddit into a Focus message. It might work for others, and might work better on a newer OS (I'm on El Capitan), but it was more confounding than helpful for me.

After launching this app, a Rainbow Wheel always appears, and a High CPU Usage was detected. The Awful App!

No native support for Firefox only with plugin. No way to add web-site to black list after settings is blocked.

FOCUS blocks (closes) apps (e.g., Mail and Skype) for a certain time to work more concentrated. Fine! But it would be very important that these apps are reopened automatically after that. This does not happen so far. It would be great if the developer could add this feature. Thanks!
