Simple Pomodoro Tool
This app is perfect for those committed to the Pomodoro time management and productivity method. I mostly like that the user interface is simple, it doesnʻt try to turn Pomodoros into something they are not (like candy rewards or groceries. weird.) I still prefer to make a physical check mark when I finish a Pom but a great feature is that the app tracks how many pomodoros you do and compiles weekly statistics for you. I love how easy it is to skip my breaks, which I realize is counter to the foundation of the method, which encourages mental breathers to maintain productivity not only within the Pom, but over the duration of the work day and the work week. I tend to feel that the Pomodoro structure is not ideal for coding. But I love how the app can function both to remind me to take mental breaks when I am in a more compulsive work mode, or motivate me to "work for rest" when I am feeling less motivated/fatigued.
Issues with pomorodo in general?
I only just got this app, but I've shied away from pomorodo apps in genreal because they're so rigid. What if I start out thinking I want to work for 20 minutes, only to find out that I can, in fact, work 60? I don't want to be reminded to take a break at 20 because then I'll lose motivation. But, on the other hand, if there's a situation where I plan to work for 60 minutes and can only manage 20, how do I work around that? I just think pomorodo should be more flexible, that would really maximize everything. I don't know myself well enough to be able to plan that kind of thing, and theoretically this app would help me to figure that out, but in the meantime I've just got this mental block. I've got ADHD so it feels like every second counts and I need all the motivation I can get, but I also can't put too much pressure on myself and I don't know where the boundary is. It would be great if, at the end of each session, there would be two choices to click on: break, or continue working. You'd get a motivating message if you continue, and a comforting message if you have a break. After a while, with being able to view the completed sessions, you'll be able to see exactly what times work for you and what to expect.
Developer Response ,
Hi Laela, thank you so much for your detailed and thoughtful feedback on this! I’ve added your suggestion to our list of possible changes and improvements in the future. If there's anything else you need, you can always contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org! – Lea
Works well in its basic form, could be way more powerful with a few changes.
Flow is a nice Pomodoro timer if you follow the original Pomodoro concepts, its clean, user-friendly and free to boot!
Unfortunately, its customization options are too rigid, with no way to set your own custom values. The flow times are set in stone (15, 20, 25, 30, 45, 50, 60) I would like the option to add any time I want (say 90 for Optimiz's suggested Deep Work blocks). Likewise, the break times are set in stone (5 & 10 for short, 20 & 30 for long) I would like to be able to set any value for both of these. Lastly, there is no way to set how many Pomodoros you want before a long break (its always 4, I would like to set 3) and there is no way to reset the Pomodoro count, so if I do 3 Pomodoros, then have lunch and come back, or even quit for the day it will give me a long break after my next Pomodoro (even if its the first one of the day!). Adding this total customization control would make this app exactly what I'm looking for, I'm hoping that the developers can implement some or all of my sugestions.
