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.
The app does exactly what it says it does, and it does it well. However, I wish there was a bit more flexibility. Why can't I manually change the timer on the home screen? It begs to be dragged to the time I want. Instead, I have to go to settings, which just feels weird. Good app, but with some UX TLC, it could be perfect.
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!
the IOS version similar to this one, is better than this android version. it is annoying to have to mess around in the settings to change the length of time when using this android version, where the IOS version you just swipe along with your finger to change the length of time. also irritationg that this app is stuck in portrait orientation-- it does not rotate when my device changes from portrait to land scape
Love this app and it really keeps me focused. I like the ticking sound feature because that is key to the Pomodoro method. Some timers for productivity don't have that sound and I find it makes a huge difference. I use this for my work and tasks as well as when my kids do homework. Glad I found this app!
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.
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 ;)
