Fantastic app - dont let 4*’s deter you from buying it


The best study timer app out there - im a medical student and it helps me keep track of how much studying I'm doing and helps keep me focussed! Great job guys!

My only grind though, is with the fact you cant set different timers for different tasks - its all set for the one time. Which is why ive given it a 4/5 at the moment. Cant think of any other improvements...(Other than this 5/5)

Best pomodoro app (for me anyway)


Fourth pomodoro app that I've tried and finally the first that doesn't automatically start the next activity.
Nicely configurable for durations no activities.
Minor changes I'd like. Strong visual clue when timer finishes ( slow flash on screen perhaps ) and a count up once activity done - so you know how far over you are.

Essential for productivity

I have been using the Podomoro technique after hearing it on the Art of Charm podcast. It is a game changer I get so much done and this an essential app to aid that process. Go for pro it will pay dividends in made up productivity. I set mine for 80/20 on the hour. 48mins action time followed by 12mins thinking/planning time
