The best productivity timer I've seen

I've been a user of the Pomodoro method for years but have never found a digital solution that has made me go "WOW!"

That is, not until I found Flow by Yugen.

I don't know how they did it, but Flow is simple, intuitive, and clean, offering an exceptional user experience. I've hated using browser-based timers since Chrome's behavior makes it so I don't hear beeps for breaks, I have to go to another tab and interrupt my workflow, and many of the solutions are just plain clunky.

With Flow, I LOVE the ability to easily start and stop the timer on the macOS taskbar. Any setting you may want to change is no more than 2 clicks away. Simply put, the design is incredible and the product is stupid simple to use. Great job, I will be recommending Flow to all of my Mac-using collagues.

Thank you! Your lovely words mean the world to us! We will continuously update Flow with useful improvements. Suggestions and ideas are always welcome at! Lovely regards, your developer team.


Nice application with promising features

I am using this application for a while. This is lightweight and has a nice feature called app block. And they are also releasing the website blocker too.
It keeps the users focused on the real work while the timer is running.
The support was also helpful to answer my questions.


Very good for starters

This is a very simple and good pomodoro timer. It would be nice to be able to have the ability to set a custom flow time. Also quitting the app requires you to open it by clicking it on the menu bar, then click on the 3 dots, then selecting Quit. Please add a context menu to Flow's icon on the menu bar that allow you to set quick actions such as pause timer or quit. Otherwise very good app!

Developer Response

Thanks for your feedback! We like your suggestion of a custom Flow Time. Therefore we will consider implementing such a feature with an upcoming update. For the moment you can easily start/pause the timer by simply right-clicking the menu bar icon without having to open the main window. Stay tuned for upcoming updates! Lovely regards, your developer team.
