Focus@will Aims To Help Users Focus, Using Music

Do you have a hard time concentrating and keeping on task, particularly for concentration intensive tasks like writing, coding, and reading? A new Los Angeles Startup, focus@will, said this morning that it has launched a private beta of a service to do just that, by using music. The company--led by Will Henshall--said it is using productivity research to deliver music to help users focus on tasks, based on musical key, arrangements, intensity, and other factors. The startup said it will launch first as a cross-platform, HTML5 web app, with rollout later to native mobile apps on iOS and Android.
