I've found this Pomodoro Timer is the best on the market to follow the instructions in the original paper on the Pomodoro Technique from Francesco Corillo. Everything is manually controlled - it's a kind of imitation of the mechanical timer and suits my needs as I see the technique. I would only propose to improve statistics, e.g. many people use weekly planning, and weekly statistics would be more helpful than monthly. UPDATE: I noticed after a recent update this simple timer without any sync option consumes up to 10% of the battery. Looks like nonsense. Minus 1 star.
I'm disappointed. Instead of cancelling, there should be a "completed" option on the timer that should immediately check the box of that task to render it done. There are no long-term or short-term goals. To get to the list, there should be a "list" page link, instead of just showing a task on a yellow page. The menu should expand with more options.
I love the app... but I wish there was a way to reset daily tasks to zero at the start of each day. So if I were to do the same task daily, each day I would wake up and have it on my to do list. Right now I have to delete the completed task from the previous day and retype the exact same thing for current day. Very frustrating!
Great app. I have increased my study hours gradually through this app. Love it. It would be better if one could add pomodoros ourself if in case one forgets to start and also there could be a reset button.
Unlike so-called "multitasking," time blocking actually works. Using the Pomodoro system has been a tremendous help to my productivity. This app is the simplest, easiest way for me to stay on task and get work done.
The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because my touchscreen doesn't work very well and I can't actually touch five stars. But I did give it 5 stars in my heart.
Exciting news! This update brings some long awaited features:
- You can customize Pomodoro duration now!
- New "ticking" and "ringing" sounds
- We have fixed several bugs and made many small improvements
- Pomodoro Timer now supports 7 languages!
Thanks for your feedback, nice reviews and all the positive energy! It really helps us going. Enjoy the app and be productive ;)
