Attention deficiencies are not uncommon for people and the ability to fully focus with cell phones going off all day could interfere with daily productivity. What if there was an app that would improve attention span, would you download it and use it every day?
There is a brand new application called Focus@will app and it claims it can boost your attention span by up to 400% using “neuroscience based music”. The technology behind this innovative app carefully engineered to reduce this distracting effect. The tunes go through “phase sequences” to ensure that they are neither too relaxing, nor too distracting.
There are many criticism against this new app
- Focus@will app does not know your personality type, what work you’re doing, how tired you are, or what kind of music you enjoy (other than allowing you to select the basic instrumental genre).
- Now let’s dig deeper into this idea that background music could actually harm, rather than boost your focus.
- If you are in a depleted attentional state, it is actually possible that the ever-changing “phase sequenced” music of the Focus@will app will increase your distraction, undermining your focus.
