In this day and age, many of us find it difficult to stay focused on our tasks (such as reading) for too long. Some of us have developed short attention spans due to being addicted to the Internet. If you find reading more than a couple of pages of your books each night boring or uneasy, you may need to work on improving your focus. These 6 iPhone apps can help:
Rivet: developed to help you build up your focus. It has a simple interface but can make you more productive if you play with it long enough.
Pomodoro Pro: Pomodoro is the system I personally use to get more things done each day. Taking frequent breaks throughout the day is proven to make you more productive. This app is a timer for Pomodoro system.
Read More: reading is very much like working out. If you don’t do it for a long time, it may take you a bit of time to develop that habit again. Read More provides you with that extra motivation to start reading more.
