What’s New

Version 1.6.4

The auto-launch feature is back with a bang! Completely redesigned, it's now easier than ever to see when Lifeline has automatically started a session. You can pause or cancel this feature from a convenient panel.

Auto-launch now drops you straight into a session again instead of just bringing up the launch panel. This change means you can set Lifeline to work seamlessly in the background, keeping you focused without any extra effort.

We're also happy to report we've resolved an issue with the knowledge base link in the taskbar menu.

Very cool app, wish for a bit more functionality though

This is one of the best time tracker I've ever found, I really like this visual timeline approach, really well done!

Few things I'd wish developers to add though:
1 - Ability to set our own time limits for tracker (now it counts intervals as 25mins, would be nice to have options to change it to any number I want)
2 - Please remove Start/Stop session on the right click on the menubar icon; I've almost lost good chunk of progress like that. Or at least add like 3sec countdown so I could quickly click again if i don't want to end the session now and clicked it accidentally.
3 - Add more standart "pomodoro-style" functionality, like the amount of intervals you'd like to hit per day, or per week.
4 - Would be nice to see an option to fully expand the timeline on mouse hover over the icon, becasue right now it initially only shows very thin progress bar and not the timeline where you can see the time, please add this option.

In any case, that's a really cool app, and I'm glad I've found it!

Hi asfraer, thanks so much for your review and feedback. Glad to hear you like the app and we will incorporate your feedback into the roadmap. If you have more suggestions don't hesitate to reach out by email or Twitter (see app description for details).


Addition on 7th of December 2020: we've solved point two in version 1.3. You can now reverse the mouse-click functionality in Preferences under Basics.

Break Timer issue

I am using the free version and find it useful except when it is time for a break. I get a message that tells me to hit the space bar or the break will end. Hitting the space bar gives a repeat of the same message 2 seconds later, and then I think the break ends. Maybe there is no visual break timer and it is working as intended. Stll giving this 5 stars as it is the most useful free version of an app I have seen.

Developer Response ,

Hi there! Thanks for the feedback, and sorry to hear about the issue you're experiencing with breaks. It's likely that you're running a program in the background that generates constant activity, which makes Lifeline think you're at your screen, and hence it ends the break.

We've also heard from someone else that their magic trackpad causes this to happen. We'll look into this further to see if we can come up with a solution.

And thanks for the 5-stars, we appreciate it!

Enjoying this pomodoro app!

I just started using this about a week ago. Still getting used to it, but I like the ability to connect with your calendar (paid version). It helps compare what you planned to do vs. your actual. I also appreciate the ability to modify the preferences.

My only ask is to develop a mobile version. Not all my work is tied to the computer. (in fact, I will purposely step away to focus on a specific activity at times). A mobile app would help with this. Otherwise it's great!

Thanks for your review and glad to hear you like it! A mobile app is definitely on the roadmap. Would love to hear your thoughts on that. Feel free to get in touch through the "Feedback and questions" option in the tray icon menu.
