Frequently Asked Questions

Why did you build another productivity app?

Here is our story.

Why can’t I pause the focus timer?

We made the focus timer non-pausable on purpose.

Because we found that if it could be paused, our users would pause frequently and get distracted much easier.

Can you provide a count-up timer?

We will consider this in the future. For now, you can accomplish something similar by setting a large duration (e.g., 4 hours) and finishing early.

Why is there no sound at the end of focus session?

All Bluebird’s notifications have sound, but you won’t be able to hear it if your iPhone is in silent mode.

If you want to stay in silent mode and not miss notifications, please consider turning on “Play Haptics in Silent Mode” in the iOS settings (https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT208353).

Why does iCloud Sync not work?

You can try the following steps:

  1. Make sure your iPhone/iPad/Mac are logged into the same iCloud account.
  2. Turn iCloud Sync off and then on again in the Bluebird’s settings on all devices.
  3. Restart your iPhone/iPad/Mac.

I found a bug, when will you fix it?

Just let us know and we will fix it as soon as we can.

Can you add this feature (X/Y/Z) to Bluebird?

Bluebird is still very young and under active development.

If some features you need are missing, please let us know.

But since we are a two-person indie team, it may take some time to fulfill your request.

Do you offer any student discount for Bluebird Pro?

Yes, we do have an education program for students.

Can I share Bluebird Pro with my family?

Yes, all Bluebird Pro purchases/subscriptions are family shareable.

I like Bluebird. Is there anything I can do to help?

Just take a moment to rate us 5 stars on the App Store can make our day 😃

Thanks for your support!
