I love it.
In general I'm a fan of the Pomodoro idea. I've tried to implement it countless times in the past few years, though rarely succeeded in following the Pomodoro recipe as prescribed (25/5/25/5/25.....)
Also some might agree that I get obsessed with the concept of time and specially with the idea of time multipliers (in Mr Robot you get a little showcase of that btw). In short: that box of tasks some call "urgent & important" are no longer on top of your daily priorities. A new 5th box now is the most important category of tasks and this 5th box collects the "tasks that will save you the most time" (in the future). For example: spend an extra hour on the next repetitive action you work on, so that you can record it or document it, step by step how it's done. And then eventually, hire someone to start doing it for you from here on. This extra hour you schedule falls in the 5th box for "Time multipliers".
So if you are like me (more or less) and like to budget (arguably) your most precious possession/currency a human has, then you may find this review useful.
I've been using Sloth for a few months now, on and off and I have to say I like the main concept and workflow in Sloth very much. I have tasks that I'd like to focus on for an hour in order to be able to take a deeper dive into the action required in order to achieve significant progress.
Below is have described "a must" for me as well as "a wish".
After using the app for a while I find that it would save me a lot of time if I was able to save my list as a task list (not template, but just a collection of tasks I'd want to keep in a separate list or as an archive) and by doing so clearing my action list so i can start a new list of todos. Currently I write them down on a paper (haven't found a way to export them from the app in any way like a plain text file to my email or anything to that effect) and then I delete them from Sloth so I can start a new phase or a new day.
That's what I'm missing from Sloth for my workflow. And I use Sloth to keep a track of my next 3-4 hours and to be able to Check at any moment if I'm going on time or if I'm behind my day as it was scheduled from the previous day.
What I wish for in Sloth is the sound of the clock for my action tasks only and then perhaps just no sound during my short breaks I take between my tasks (Pomodoro style but no set limit of 5 min and 20 min for long break).
Good timer app
I use this app almost daily. I upgraded to the paid version and I wish it had a one minute option to give more timer flexibility. I also wish you could loop through the list instead of having to delete and then re-add. Still the best timer I’ve tried.
It has a lot of things it can improve, but it's awesome in what it already does.
