TL;DR? Download the app for Mac here.

Welcome to the Sesh beta! Thanks for testing things out! The desktop app only works on Mac for now. If you run into any issues, please tweet at or DM Michael.

This app was created by Taylor Rogalski, Michael Bock and Nicholas Yang at the Nov 2019 YC Hackathon.

What is Sesh?

Sesh is a heads-up display for your computer that helps you focus.

It lets you make time-lapse screen recordings that show you how you work.

You can share them with your team.

How does it work?

  1. Say what you're working on, and set a timer (up to 45 minutes). For example, "redesign landing page."
  2. Press start. Sesh will start recording a time-lapse. The window with your stated goal will always float on top of everything else - to remind you what you're working on.
  3. When the time is up, you'll see your time-lapse. Please be very patient while waiting for the video to process — it will look like it's stuck, but it's not!

How do I get started?

  1. Download the Mac app here.
  2. Click on the window and enter your goal & time. Press Start.
  3. Be productive!

What about privacy?
