How much does FocusGenie cost?
We offer a 3-day free trial with two auto-renewing subscription options (if you decide to continue):
Yearly subscription at $47.99 (33% savings)
Monthly subscription at $5.99
Note: The listed subscription prices are for US customers. Pricing in other countries may vary and actual charges may be converted to your local currency depending on the country of residence.
Why is this a paid app?
Rather than impact your user experience with distracting ads, we opted for a subscription model. We carefully cost-compared so that FocusGenie would be as accessible as possible without sacrificing functionality.
A portion of profits will go to CHADD (Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder) to continue research and advocacy going forward. By using FocusGenie, you’re also helping others learn and access more!
Do you need to have a diagnosis of ADHD to use FocusGenie?
No! You don’t need a formal diagnosis of ADHD, because FocusGenie is helpful in every stage of your journey. If you’ve ever been curious about HOW your (or a loved one's) brain works and want to create long-lasting changes, start here.
Is it for kids and adults?
FocusGenie was built for adolescents and adults in mind. Kids under age 13 may use it with their family as some of the educational concepts may be too complex to process on their own. We have enjoyed using it with our own children and explaining concepts to them as we go through slides. Kids have also really enjoyed the task-timer feature (this can also be a helpful aid in parenting!)
Can this take the place of medication?
This app, and anything else found on the internet, should not be used in place of appropriate medical intervention. FocusGenie is for behavioral management. However, access to care is so hugely problematic, that this is a wonderful way to learn about and manage ADHD.
