I think I like it, but ... I'm not certain how the charts and activities work together. I have the paid version, btw and never played with the free before doing the upgrade. Yes, an "all activities" chart is generated that shows two bars. (I've been using it for 2 days.) Both bars are dated April 14th, even tho I've done most pomos on the 15th. The two bars are spaced far apart, not right next to each other as the sample images show. Yes, I can make activity categories, but no results appear in some activity-specific views when I toggle away from the "all activities" to a category view. For the activity categories in which I've not done any pomos, I get a "no pomos were found in this time range" message. On the ones where I've done 1-2 pomos, I just get a blank chart. There doesn't seem to be a way to directly compare how many pomos were dedicated to one activity vs. another ... which is what i assumed this app would do. As far as I can tell, it just counts total pomos and displays them on a not-very-useful chart. I'm hoping there's just something I don't understand yet, because I really want this to be useful ... especially after paying $6.99. I can get an app that counts pomos for free.
Simple perfect visual motivator I have the free version of this app and it is brilliant. Most trackers are clunky or quirky. This is visually appealing and simple. I am going to go pro and have to see that part of the app. Hoping there is a distraction list somewhere built in so I can keep track of those brilliant thoughts and keep focused. Great job!
My favorite pomodoro app! Update: The developers implemented both of the features I asked for in my previous review. I'm now very happy with the app!..............................Previous review: I purchased the pro version of this app because goal and activity features are worth the money. That's great to be able to put daily goals of number pomodoros, and to see how much you achieve. It's also wonderful to classify the pomodoros based on the activity type. However I cannot use the app because of some simple limitations: 1) It makes a ticking noise in first 5-10 seconds of each pomodoro and there's no way to deactivate it, it ticks even at the silent mode! I share an office with colloquies and it's embarrassing when I forget to turn down the volume. I cannot use it during meetings for the same reason. 2) Many times I forget to turn the app on, or study/write when I don't have my phone with me. I'd like to record those times later but there is no way to enter number of pomodoros later. It would be great if developers put an option to enter pomodoros for a particular day later so the statistics and goal settings would be meaningful. If these two items are fixed, I'll happily update my rating and my comments.
Great App! It does what it says it does. Very simple to use, yet a really effective studying motivator! I keep trying to beat my pomodora scores of previous days. I hope the developers will keep updating it, especially the tasks and subtasks feature! Great job! Update: love the update, I can finally organize my activities by tasks and control the ticking sound and timings. Great job developer!! Maybe in future updates an archive with all completed tasks and dates of completion would be a super motivating feature. Thanks for the update!
Excellent Allows to track of every individual time block. Also filtering based on time-block spent on each activities for time length upto more than past six months... Plus many other useful features.
Only pomodoro app I found that has a timer in the status bar. However, that black on gray is terribly difficult to read, as if it was not small already. Can you no make it at least white on red or site on black for contrast or black on white? Thanks.
New in 1.2:
* Tasks! You can now add specific tasks to your activities.
* Both portrait and landscape modes available.
New in 1.1.5:
* IMPORTANT: Only Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean devices are supported moving forward.
* Bug fix: Pro upgrade wasn't immediately happening in some situations. This is now fixed, and should now show immediately.
* There's now a setting to disable the ticking sound completely, rather than just having it fade out for a few seconds.
