LifeHacker: "Keeps You On-Task and Productive"
Want to eliminate the anxiety of time and enhance your focus and concentration?
The key is to apply yourself to tasks by working in units of 25 minutes, separated by short breaks of 5 minutes.
The steps are:
1. Choose a task to accomplish
2. Start timer
3. Work until timer rings
4. Take a short break
5. Every 4 sessions, take a longer break
Focus Time will automatically switch between the work timer and the long/short break timers, as well as counting the number of sessions you've completed. You can select an activity and see a graph of how you're spending your time.
Don't worry about taking a call or switching to another app while using Focus Time - the timer will carry on running even in the background.
Now with iCloud-based syncing so you can see your achievements on all your devices!

Automatic is nice, but can use some work.
First off, I like the whole automatic thing. It starts the break automatically.
The one problem that makes this almost useless to me is that the alarm does not activate at the right time if I put my screen on sleep. I tried quitting the app and starting over, and even changing the time. The alarm still manage to activate at the wrong time. For instance, the alarm goes off to tell me I can take a break 3 minutes into my break. THis is broken imo. I have to set my phone to never sleep.
The price is also quite steep for what it does. It's even a greater burn in the wallet when the app does not work.
It's my go-to app for using the pomodoro technique.
Great except for 1 thing
I love this app. It'd be perfect and totally worth the money if the OSX--iOS sync functioned properly. If you guys fix that I'll be happy to give you 5 stars.
