The Harvard Crimson, the daily paper of the Harvard University has highlighted FocusBooster App to Harvard students in its Blog as a key tool to allow strong focus on studies.
The Harvard Crimson, founded in 1873, is the United States oldest continuously published daily college newspaper. It boosts a proud history of Pulitzer Prize-winning editors, with past editors including US President John F. Kennedy, plus US President Franklin D. Roosevelt also holding The Crimson’s president’s chair in 1904.
So what did they say about our FocusBooster app?

Properties of a piece of paper:
- it is static
- it has only one state
- once printed upon, it doesn’t change
- other than reading it, you cannot interact with it
- it doesn’t change size from viewer to viewer
Properties of a web application:
- it needs to respond to user gestures and interaction
- it needs to collect data
- should have a logical flow and process for performing multiple functions
- it needs to present different data at different parts of a workflow
- needs to persist state across different pages
As you can see, they’re completely different mediums. They’re totally and utterly opposites.
So why do companies let brand designers attempt to design web applications?
