Focus Keeper Pro.
For some strange reason, it really does help you focus on the task at hand.
Free, for iOS (limited time, $1.99 after promotion)

Procrastination is a hard habit to break. If you have trouble getting things done, you can always take help from your constant companion – your phone! This app is designed to stop your mind from wandering when you have an important task at hand.

The developers (Pixo) have devised a plan. You start by choosing a topic to focus on and then spend 25 minutes working on that without any distractions. You take a 5 minute break after every cycle (25 minutes) and a 25 minute break after every four cycles (100 minutes).

Do whatever you want during those breaks but keep the focus sessions sacrosanct. It guides you with a countdown and the sound of a ticking clock. For some strange reason, it really does help you focus on the task at hand. You can tweak settings to suit your goals: alter the length of any session, change colours, sounds and alarms. The Pro version is free for a limited time only and doesn’t have any ads.
