I really like this app. I like the colorful category tabs. It's simple yet effective. I like that i can keep track on how many hours I've spent on a task. The Pomodoro Timer is useful but it doesn't ring. It vibrates but if the phone is not on me I wouldn't know. I "donated" thinking maybe the pro version would ring but it doesn't. I'm a little heartbroken because I really wanted this app to work! The timer is also slightly off (slower) when I compared it to my kitchen timer. Please fix the ring tone and the timer? Pretty please with a cherry on top?
I like that it has a "done" button for finishing a project early. Really, really helps with motivation and the tracking of both minutes worked and tasks completed is helpful. I get more done now! Tip: if you set it to 0 min break it will start the cycle again immediately. Useful if you're planning for a certain amount of time for a project and it goes over but you don't mind. It's also fun to test yourself to see if you can complete a task early.
A great app for pacing your day or motivating yourself. I work from home, but suffer with ongoing pain and need to take regular breaks. I have set up tasks with various configurations of work and breaks times. The title of the task has the configuration in its title. This allows me to work at a pace which suits my current condition. It is very flexible and easy to use.
For those who complains about not having sound notification, I've been there the first time I tried the app. Solution: disable the feature, close the app, run test timer (no sound abviously). Re-open the app, enable the sound feature, run test timer again and tada! Best pomodoro indeed but need some refinements. I will contact the dev directly for that and hope I could rate it 5/5 soon.
Best app for what I'm looking for but still not quite what I'm after. After using fabulous - and falling in love with a the mourning routine functionality. I've been after another app that offers the same or very similar features without the crazy monthly price tag of fabulous. The problem with using this app for a mourning routine is that it's really designed as a pomodoro timer type app. I can make a list of steps in my morning routine but I have to click through them individually. I also have to set the rest timers to 0 minutes. And there's no real tracking of how long I've kept up with a given routine.
With the recent update, this app has easily become the BEST pomodoro timer and scheduler in the market (Thankfully, the developer fixed the category sorting problem I had complained in the previous review). I have tried most of pomodoro apps in Play Store, but none of them could come close to this app in terms of flexibility, organization, and statistics(even though the graph tends to be little ugly). For example, you can assign to each task its own time interval, and the time spent on a task can be seen right below, which are very important and useful features but no other apps provide. Also, surprisingly, all substantial features are included in the free version. Recently, the developer mentioned about synchronization, and I have no doubt that I will pay any amount of bill to get the access. So, please keep working on it!!
