Apps And Software To Help You Focus While Writing | Web Design Relief

Interruptions and noisy surroundings can make it difficult to concentrate on your writing. And it’s easy to lose your designated writing hours to checking social media, visiting favorite websites, or watching the latest viral video. If you need to block out distractions during your writing time, the tech experts at Web Design Relief have found the best apps and software to help you focus while writing.

The Best Apps And Software To Help You Focus While Writing

Brain.FM. This app provides music that sounds different and works differently to improve your focus and boost concentration within five minutes. The music guides you into a mental state free of distractions. Its patented functional music is said to coordinate brain activity to get your concentration levels up when needed.

RescueTime. This downloadable software helps you assess how you spend your time and gives you the ability to block distractions. RescueTime’s detailed reports and tools also guide you in setting goals and staying on track.

Noisli. Get your headphones or speakers ready! This app lets you mix and match different sounds so you can create a sound environment that helps you focus on work or relax. You can play these high-quality background sounds individually or mix them by adjusting the volume for each sound. There are also preselected playlists available.

Lumosity. The daily games offered by Lumosity are designed to help you improve your brain function. Think of it as a personal trainer for your brain with scientifically validated tasks that provide feedback and insights to boost your processing speed and problem solving—perfect for busting through writer’s block!

Flora App. Available on iOS, the Flora App uses gamification to give you added incentive to stay focused. In the app, you plant a virtual seed that grows into a tree (as long as you stay focused on what you’re working on). If you deviate from your goal by scrolling away to social media or another website, your plant dies. You can challenge other writers for added incentive and fun!

ToDoist. This productivity and task management tool helps you organize various tasks in the order that you need to complete them. It’s especially useful for planning out the various stages of writing a novel or memoir, but all writers can benefit from a clear-cut writing schedule!

Coffitivity. Sometimes it can be hard to concentrate when it’s TOO quiet. With Coffitivity, you can enjoy the ambient sounds of a café without going to one! From “Morning Murmur” to “Lunchtime Lounge” and more, there’s a background sound available to help you focus—but alas, you’ll have to make your own coffee.


Question: What focus-oriented app or software do you think you’ll try?

Working with the Web Design Relief team was a total pleasure. They made the process easy, in-depth, professional, and lyrical. I wanted a site that leaned toward the bohemian and yet held an edge of minimalist sophistication. I couldn’t be happier with my very inviting and creative site! We should win awards with this one!

I cannot possibly detail how professional and helpful Web Design Relief has been in helping me launch my collection of short stories—there are just too many things they have done! They’ve been there for me all along the way, guiding me in developing my book and into the 21st century of web design and social media platforms. It could have been a bewildering journey; Instead it was one that was organized and so pleasant. Truly, Web Design Relief has blown me away by what they have created. The first time I watched my book trailer (who knew there were book trailers?), I cried. That team perfectly imaged what my book is about. I want to thank the whole team for their skill and creativity. I appreciate it so much.

I’m pleased with the look of my website. The team at Web Design Relief listened to my suggestions and added a few of their own to make my website look exactly how I envisioned it. I would definitely recommend using Web Design Relief if you are looking to create a website.
