Easily my new favorite app to track my distractions, and it was an easy choice to upgrade. I've only been using it for one day, but I LOVE the analytics feature that shows me when I'm most distracted to better optimize my work sessions and work with my brain instead of against it. (And as someone with ADHD, it's so important to find these patterns!) I also love how easy it is to see how much progress I've made on tasks! I've already been recommending it to anyone who will listen.

The pro version is only $1.99 so a person can't complain. It does seem like all the features of person would actually use are in that pro version. It would be nice to have a free trial. I really liked being able to divide each task into self labeled parts. However, the slider underneath the task is not easy to advance. I kept trying to mark off a section completed and it kept checking the task as done. The statistics page on how often I was distracted could be a great tool.

So good first: If you're looking for an easy-to-use app that'll give you all the Pomodoro perks but with also a stopwatch for tasks you don't know the duration of, this is it. And I love the "distracted" feature, simple AND useful! Thank you for the reply, team. Yes, once you fix the multiple devices cloud sync, I'd happily score it a 5 star. It's become an essential part of my life!
