Lightning Pitch: ActionAlly
PRODUCT/SERVICE DESCRIPTION: Consistently take action on your most important work. ActionAlly is an OSX App that helps you cut through distraction to plan and execute on your most important tasks every day. No more drifting to reddit, Facebook or YouTube and wasting hours-upon-hours of time. No more ending the day frustrated you didn’t accomplish more.
ActionAlly appears above all your open windows to channel your attention, before you get distracted, into the things that will have the biggest impact on your success.
It will appear every day your computer wakes up from being asleep, if you’ve been inactive for awhile, and can even detect if you’re distracted and appear then to get you back on track.
For Pomodoro-lovers out there, ActionAlly’s timed work sessions allow you to focus on a specific task for a set period of time so that you can make the absolute most of your time.
ActionAlly isn’t a productivity app. It’s an effectiveness app that fundamentally improves the way you approach work.
We’re absolutely committed to creating a simple, powerful product that actually delivers on its promise to help you drastically increase the number of your most important tasks that you complete on a daily basis.
