Elegant, robust, simple and fantastic dev support

Full disclosure, I didn’t give all 5 stars to begin with because the product was broken. But now that the pro version is fixed the fact that the dev team is super helpful, and mostly how quick they were to address my issue. I have to say this product is simple elegant, and yet robust for tasking. I whole heartedly recommend all five stars. I have used a lot of tasking products, and I like how quick it is. The support is there too. Pro tip, It is even better when paired with Focus Matrix.

Many Small Inconveniences

Doesn’t sync state well between iOS and Mac.

If you started working without starting the timer, there’s no way to scroll the time forward a few minutes.
