Brutu – Stay focused or burn money πŸ”₯

December 6, 2019 at 2:42pm
I just launched Brutu Timer. It's an iOS timer that helps you stay focused. Select an amount of money that motivates you and start a timer. Put your phone down and stay on task. If you leave the app Brutu will charge you. You can still receive phone calls or swipe to the notification center. You can also add a break – leave the app and Brutu will notify you when to come back.
I built this tool because, as a freelancer, I struggled with being distracted by Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, and other apps. There are plenty of effective tools to block distracting websites for desktop (check Freedom.to or SelfControl (mac) ). Due to system limitations, these tools mostly do not work on iOS. I've found that using a small financial incentive can be a strong motivator to keep distractions away. It’s quite surprising how an aversion to losing even small amounts of money can make one more productive.
Download Brutu for iPhone and iPad from the App Store: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/brutu-timer/id1484705834?ls=1 Or visit our website: https://www.brutu.app
