Focus One Mind Editor's Review

Technology has made life easier for humans beyond doubt but it comes with the downfalls too. The web serves as the source of entertainment, income and resource for several things for most people. However, the internet can also become a source of distraction and worry for a lot of PC users. You may be worried about how much time your family spend on social media sites and how this is hampering their study. Some people find themselves to be glued to certain online services but find it hard to get rid of the habit. For them an app like Focus One Mind will come in handy. It lets you limit access to online services and PC software based on time.

Focus One Mind can be installed on PCs with Windows XP and later versions. It is not tedious to install and configure the app as such.

Focus One Mind has a simple and uncluttered UI. The app supports creating profiles and you can customize each profile to suit usage needs. You may create a profile under which you can set which websites should be blocked. The sites can be blocked for a time interval too. This is helpful when you want to let the family access the web for education reference but do not want them to spend time on Facebook or such sites.

The app lets you block both websites and software installed on the system. For example, if you want web access to be restricted to other users for a specified time, simply add the browser app to the processes list and set the timing. Within that time frame, users will not be able to access that browser. This can be applicable for weekdays, weekends or selected days.

For people who find it hard to concentrate on their work for online sources of distractions, Focus One Mind can be ideal. You can use its focus mode. Apps specified in the Focus mode will only be allowed to run within the specified interval. The blocking of apps and websites by the app is quite effective. If you have banned website for a time, other users will get browser offline notice and no amount of PC reboot or browser restart is going to change that! It works with major web browsers including Firefox and Chrome.

Focus One Mind can be customized to suit your usage needs quite a bit. You can use the app to shut down the PC automatically at a specified time. There is an option to set a reminder which pops up before a set time and notifies you about the impending shutdown. You may also opt for an audio reminder. Canceling the event is possible and overriding settings of the app but you will require a check code. It also lets you block access to Windows task manager. This can be handy for thwarting tech savvy people who may want to terminate the app by using task manager.

Positive Points:
•    Sleek, uncluttered UI.
•    Profile based app and web usage filtering.
•    Supports major web browsers.
•    Shutdown scheduling.

Negative Points:
•    Nothing as such.

Conclusion:
Focus One Mind is a nifty and versatile app that can be used to help users focus on work and stay away from internet related distractions. It also serves the role of parental control tool by offering app and web access filtering. There is option to set various profiles and under those profiles you can set a time period for which certain apps and site can be blocked. You can also prevent browsers from running. This will help you eliminate web access entirely for a time. The app can be used to shutdown computer at specific time without user intervention. You can set reminders to run before such events. The app also comes with a focus mode which only allows specified apps to run. Overall, you get enough bangs for the bucks.

Rating:4.5/5
