iGotThis is an app that focuses on focusing -- a major issue for anyone dealing with the day-to-day of being blessed with ADHD. The app is best described as a task management system, but the big difference is the implementation. Everything has been tweaked and refined to help children (and adults) keep on task and measure their progress as they work toward daily and lifelong goals.

Seeing ADHD as "a by-product of being an extraordinary person", app developer and creator Rich Schramm has determined to have the app not work as a reminder of a disability but instead as a personal coach that paces and motivates you to move forward.
