Ratings and Reviews
I tried this app for around a month. It did help with my productivity.
However I found it was often buggy - most of the buttons would suddently stop responding and there was no way to fix this unless I closed the app, which could only be done through Activity Monitor (since pretty much nothing would be clickable).
Additionally I found lots of the interface counter intuitive. It made no sense to me why clicking on something that is not a checkbox (the pomodoro number flag on the left side of tasks) should behave like a checkbox, also there was no "active" task -- to work on a task at any point you have to click it, which puts it in edit mode at the same time instead of just "selecting" it.
I also found that the big visualisation was way too big, the alternative is just the timer on the task bar. It would be nice to have something minimal in between.
DOES NOT WORK WITH OMNIFOCUS 2
I quite like Eggscellent - it’s a great looking app, but as an avid OmniFocus user I chose it because it promised integration.
THERE IS NO SUPPORT FOR OMNIFOCUS 2. Flagged tasks do not show up. Don’t buy this for the Omnifocus integration until they fix it.
Best Pomodoro timer on the Mac
I've been using this for a few months now and it's absolutely brilliant. The integration that this app provides is excellent - it works very well with my plain text task management setup (in nvALT and nvRemind) through the Reminders sync and I am able to track my daily work patterns through Calendar integration. The visual timer is also well designed and unobtrusive.
This app has definitely helped me to work more effectively and I look forward to many more productive days with Eggscellent!
