Excellent weapon against that "I'll do it later" feeling. I find it easier to start tasks now that I use this Pomodoro app. Some days the only way I can talk myself into getting started on tasks is to tell myself that I'm only going to give it 25 minutes. I find Pomodoro light's simple interface and minimal features particularly useful. I'm tempted to upgrade to the pro version but I'm affraid I'll start avoiding it once I populate my task list. This is my here-is-your-only-task-for-the-next-25-minutes app. Speaking of which, time to start!
Had to turn off ticking All really good and simple to do... Customizable without being overly so, but the ticking sound needs attention.. When it repeats it misses about a quarter second and drove me crazy just counting to 10 ticks waiting for the next repeat of the track. But turned it off and I could focus on work once again.
Does what it is supposed to do I like that it keeps track of how many pomodoros you've completed, for what task, and asks you if you want a short or long break after 4 pomodoros. It has some optional features like the ticking sound and volume. I noticed it can drain your battery faster than usual, but that is expected. It is not so bad, though. I recommed it.
Exactly what I wanted, no more, no less If you want a pomodoro timer, this is it. There's no changing the 25 minutes on and five minutes off to different amounts of time. In fact, I love the automation of that. I don't have to keep track of when my long/short breaks will be (which is every four 25 minute sessions, you get a long break). The app does that for me. That way, I just get lost in my studying. My productivity, I feel, has really taken off.
Too simplistic for me Looking for more advanced features. Even after perusing the pro version, this is not the app for me. It's not bad, though, and particularly this app alone is great. There's no ads, the add'l permissions are absent (big plus), and it functions smoothly. If you're looking for a minimalist pomodoro app or an introduction to the technique, this is a good app..
This thing is genius I've been really struggling with staying focused and motivated at work. I also have an ongoing issue with work related anxiety. This simple tool helps me to stay focused and goal oriented. Rather than increasing my anxiety, the ticking is very calming. And of course, being more productive as a result of the timer helps me to feel more confident in my abilities.
