About this app

Productivity Challenge Timer is a Pomodoro timer which aims to help you be more productive, more focused, waste less time and so on, you already know all that stuff.

What this app is about is challenging you to work and study harder and tracking your work habits. You'll earn/lose ranks depending on your performance, earn achievements and track your productivity over time, so you'll know how long you worked on what and during which days of the week and hours of the day you're at your most productive.

Now here's a few things you should know before downloading:

- This is not an organizer. If you can't keep track of what you're supposed to be doing, this app is not for you. The app includes tracking of projects so you know how much time you spent working on each of your clients/books/websites/whatever - like a time sheet, but it's not meant to be an organizer or a to-do list.

- This app is in English only. No translations are planned for the foreseeable future.

- This app will not let you pause work sessions or finish them early, so if you have a tiny baby-sized bladder and you need to pause every few minutes, this app is not for you. The shortest work session you can set is 10 minutes and you're not supposed to be interrupted. Also because I use this app too, and I'd be the first to abuse that pause feature to go look up useless nonsense instead of getting work done.

- The purpose of this app is not to promote a healthy work-life balance, but to get you to work harder. Because of this, it does not recognize weekends or holidays or parenting or any other excuse to take time off, and it will demote you if you start slipping. Please don't expect the app to validate your goals, its sole purpose is to make you work harder, even when you shouldn't.

- If you want to use the app with the screen off, make sure it's been exempted from any battery saving apps/features your device may be using.

That's it, thanks for reading and I hope you find this app as useful as I do.

EDIT - Thanks dev, for the reply. One of the few 5/5 apps. Great app, does what it says and does it brilliantly. I love the snarky tone. Not sure if the 'Take a Break' button is of any use, as I find myself just abandoning the app once I'm done, if I don't start another session immediately. More importantly, it would be great to have an overtime step button after the completion of a session cause I can't be bothered to extend the timer right in time should a session take a little longer.

Unfortunately work sessions cannot be extended once they're done for several reasons that I can't go into here (thanks, 350 character limit). I suggest you make use of the almost-complete sound combined with the overtime step. Both features can be enabled in PCT's settings.

It does what it says it does, and has good stat tracking even when using the free version. The rankings are a great bonus, because you really want to reach and keep higher ranks. It is very unforgiving of times where you keep working long after the timer finishes - but that's the point. I would suggest allowing a way to invalidate a session after the app was accidentally left in continuos mode. I'd also like a way to tag projects as 'non-productive' and not counting towards the rankings.
