Simple pomodoro timer

This a great timer. Very simple and clean design. I’ve tried a lot of these apps and this is one of the better ones. It has a few more advanced features like statistics and changing the length of timers, but these are hidden in the background if you don’t want to use them. In particular I like that while I think this app has a ‘pro’ subscription offer, this is not continuously advertised to you and doesn’t get in the way of the basic features of this app. In addition, there are no ads and a very clean intuitive interface. Would recoupment if you’re looking for a go to pomodoro timer 👍

Really useful

There’s something really beneficial to having an actual app tell you when to stop for a break and go back to work.

It keeps you driven, knowing that in the short space of time you give yourself to work you don’t have to keep looking at your phone and see the timer.

(You could use your phone as a timer but having an actual app which utilises everything is more sufficient and seems to be helping way more to stay productive)

Simple and Perfect

This app does everything you need it to. Nothing more to waste your time, nothing less to be disappointed with. To top it off it’s beautifully designed and visually pleasing. Bravo.
