This is my first deal posting, so whoa, go easy.
: Use code Focus15
- Lifetime: $51.00
- 1-year: $17
There are 2 deals at this link. Both expire 3/6/18. One is a focus@will lifetime sub to this 50-channel music service for $60. The other is a yearly sub at $20. (You can additionally get a 10%-off code if this is your first buy at StackSocial, which is like a Groupon for tech deals.)
This service serves up calming music to work by. You can choose from many genres, and then tweak the "intensity" level to achieve maximum immersion in your work project. That's the idea, and it works for me.
Are the "neuroscience" claims real or wishful hype bubbles? Dunno. You can google some reviews that will make you hesitate, esp. this Wired review: https://www.wired.com/2014/07/neu...music-app/
which skillfully debunks the "science" behind the service. Here's a review https://www.timeatlas.com/find-focus/
from someone who likes it, although she also doubts the science and the metrics.
Is it worth it? Dunno for you. For me, yes. I don't use it as often as I'd like, but for whatever reason(s), it does help focus me when I need it. That's worth the price of admission, placebo or no, esp. at this price. I could use Spotify or something else, but this is easy and friction-free.
I've been paying a promo price of $24/yr for three years now. Their pricing is truly all over the map (see https://www.focusatwill.com/gift-account/
). $60 for a lifetime subscription is the lowest possible ever, I think. So I'm taking the dive. I just am hoping they stay afloat...at least for my lifetime sub.
If you want to get a taste of focus@will, you can apparently sign up for a 15-day trial (no credit card needed). You can also search YouTube for their sample videos with soundtracks.
I hope this helps someone. I am in no way related to this business.
