Introducing Focused

Building on the amazing Typed app from Realmac Software, Codebots is proud to bring you Focused for Mac.

The distraction-free markdown editor

Focused is not just a distraction-free writing app - it’s the first writing app that actually aids your focus.

What is Markdown?

Markdown was created by John Gruber as an easy to read plain text format that allows you to create web based content with no HTML knowledge. The syntax that is used when writing markdown allows you to define the intent of different elements in the markdown document e.g. a # in front of a word indicates that the word is to be formatted and displayed as a Title.

Why use Markdown?

Markdown removes the need to memorise complex HTML tags, and an ever growing number of blogging platforms allow markdown to be used for content creation.

Focused has separated itself from the pack by very intentionally not packing itself full of features that many users won't touch, instead focusing on the pure writing experience as the core element to get right.

Zen Mode

Whether you’re writing a paper or a blog post, you’re at your most productive when you focus. In addition to Focused’s minimal design, Zen Mode heightens your focus with a choice of eight carefully selected soundtracks. Perfect to help you relax and create great content, no matter what your deadline may be.

Dubbed Zen Mode, Codebots has given new meaning to the overused concept of distraction-free writing. Focused’s take is more about taking away stress than clutter.


Taptanium Sound Tracks

Focused includes 2 fantastic sound tracks from the creator of Sunny and Windy. They are both high quality 3D stereoscopic tracks, hand crafted by Franz Bruckhoff. If you like them we highly recommend you check out his relaxation apps.

There are several decent Markdown editors out there, but the best one I’ve used has to be Focused, a new app from Codebots.
