Extremely useful for long-term productivity

I've found this app to be extremely useful for helping me (as the name suggests) 'Be Focused' on whatever I'm working on. I really like the way you can adjust the 'working' and 'rest' periods to suit whatever task you're performing and how it then tracks the number of cycles you've done. A great tool, especially for those who wish to be productive with the time they spend on a task.

Fabulous tool

I use it all the time to control my screen time while drafting patterns on the computer. If I take a few minutes break every 25 mins my eyes don’t get strained. If I don’t use the timer I will sit for hours without a break. I love how easy it is to set the time blocks and it is so easy to use. I don’t need to track my blocks so the free version is great for me.

Good effective app for the pomodoro technique

I have used several similar apps and what I like about this one is that I am able to track my performance and efforts over a day or weekly period. Great feature. Definitely worth a look
