Bring structure to your workflow by utilising time blocking technique.

Time blocking is an effective strategy for using time wisely and achieving greater results. Blocking out time for specific activities allows people to focus on one task at a time, limit distractions and procrastination.

It's really simple to use:

1. Define your tasks at hand, make a task list.
2. Define a block of time during which you will eliminate all distractions and give all your focus to your tasks. Start the timer and work.
3. Take frequent breaks. Regular breaks are conducive to greater productivity and concentration. During these breaks take a breath of fresh air, do some push-ups, stretch or anything else that helps you to restore your power. Your body will thank you.
4. Repeat this work/break cycle and take a longer breaks when you feel you need to.

This is my favorite timer app!

I’ve basically tried all of the pomodoro-timer-focus-technique apps I could find on the App Store and have concluded that Workflow Timer is my favorite experience!

The pomodoro technique has been very helpful to me and Workflow Timer is the most focused and enjoyable experience! I really enjoy getting my work done because of this app as well as utilizing this app to specifically structure my day. It works perfectly and syncs well between the iOS and macOS apps. The design is minimal but very easy to use. I also like how the dev doesn't hit you over the head with their own task management system implementation, as I use a different app for this.

It is simple but very effective. And it feels very rewarding when I can track how I am improving on the statistics page. But at the same time, none of these features feel like they bog down the app or cause my ADHD brain to lose focus because I’m adjust the app’s settings, etc. I really do feel the amount of polish that has gone in to Workflow Timer. Thanks to the developer, Alex, for your hard work (and very helpful support email responses too!)

No close button?

This app does everything it says it does, and it does them perfectly. The only thing it wont do is get out of your way. There is no close button, and so the timer window will sit there annoyingly until you go up to the menu bar and select hide. Then, to show the timer, your checklist, or anything at all, you must once again go up to the menu bar and select show (it should be noted that you can edit things in the window even while its hidden, which results in a lot of deleted checklist items).

I’m not sure whos brilliant idea it was to make a program window that operates like the exact opposite of a program window, but fire that individual. Give their replacement the full credit after this app becomes perfect and closable.

Can only minimize to a certain size

I love the app because it is functional and minimalistic. My only concern is the fact that it can only minimize to a certain size. Hopfully the developers sees this comment and makes proper adjustments. Thanks for the app!
