Minor fixes and improvements
I like it
A cool feature is it syncs with Mac, so I can keep track of how many pomodoros I do daily. I set a goal of doing 12-16 pomodoros per day on deep work. This does a solid job. Highly recommended.
It is annoying that the round does not reset automatically, and yesterday’s intervals are continued. I hope the interval is rest daily.
A great way to implement pomodoro and hold myself accountable to goals through time.
This app really keeps me on task. I do wish I could add time to my stats for the times I forget to start the timer. That way I could keep track of the weeks progress.
Great App recommend
The layout is slightly confusing but it is otherwise a useful app for time management.
Full featured, well designed interface. Synching across devices is reliable. I depend on this app to keep me honest and track my real, factual effort, rather that relying on guesswork.
If you like the “Pomodoro” method, this app is perfect. It is super customizable and it integrates seamlessly with the MacOS app. Even if you don’t, it makes a great time tracker if you work on different projects and need to track time on each.
Use it to time study sessions
No big complaints so far. I think syncing is about as good as it can be. But I can’t start a timer on my computer and have my phone notify me while I’m on break, unless I open the app on my phone. That aside it’s a good app and is helping my productivity. Hopefully it doesn’t bother me about getting focus matrix as well. I did look into that and it doesn’t meet my needs at this point.
Tried so many other apps with ridiculous recurring pricing! This app does everything I need! The best I have ever bought because it’s making me more productive every day!
I find this app surprisingly helpful to keep focus on my work. I noticed that the ‘end of work’ sound does not work unless the Noticications are On for this app. However, the sound for End of break works even if Notifications are off! In my opinion the sounds set in this app should be independent of the Notifications status.
Great app. Does the job. Most important thing is to use the app consistently and to monitor one’s progress.
Works flawlessly across Mac/ iPhone and iPad. Real handover experience without slow sync
As a standard alone pomodoro app, this is good and well designed. If you don't need to sync across devices, you'll be ok with this one. But syncing? Forget it. It's 2018 so why this isn't an app priority, but instead users are treated with disdain and contempt, is beyond me. Some hipster nerd had a latte epiphany and then found the back end of app design was actual hard WORK. Other apps manage it: learn what they do. If you need to sync for productivity, run don't walk.
Don’t buy if you after for the sync. They don’t sync. I want full refund! And It’s useless having other name current studying time. Every time I change it, the time doesn’t change. It’s only the name change
I find this app makes helps me to focus and use my time effectively. However, I often return to my to-do list within the app to find that tasks have disappeared. Sometimes they had zero completed intervals, sometimes they had several. This is very frustrating when I want to make note of the information, and it makes the stats less accurate.
Is what it is.
Love studying with this app it really improves my concentration
It happens all the time when the clock tick in the middle and go back all the way to zero??? Come on, you cannot keep your timer straight? This happens when the app is in the foreground! Do you need me to teach you iOS programming?
Easy to use and most importantly for me, so easy to customise. I use it nearly everyday. I wish there was an android version available.
I use the app to study by. The timer helps keep on track with concentration levels and breaking to drink water or stretch. I am able to work longer at studying or working. I rely heavily on setting my timers to be in tuned with fatigue. This is a life saver for me!
significantly increased my productivity and consistency.
Such a helpful and healthy productivity system.
Really love this app for keeping me on track! Sometimes the tasks are logged in backwards and I have to rearrange them but overall, very satisfied. Use it on both my computer and phone
Easy and reliable to use
Nothing to complain really.
8 Pomodoros a day is my target and this keeps me on track
It works well overall but is slow to sync between iPad and Mac apps. It also had a sync issue today resulting in the deletion of a week's worth of completed sessions. There needs to be a way of updating the records manually, in case you complete work intervals away from the computer.
This app has so much potential and I really would like it to be better... Firstly the alarms are not working for me at all (I'm on iPad on the latest iOS..). Secondly, I just completed my 2nd pomodoro today... and it's giving me a 15min break, I think because it's also counting previous day pomodoros, but really it should reset when a new day starts. Other than that I do love the integrated Task Tracking and Reporting... please fix these basic issues soon so I can continue using this app! :)
