Ratings and Reviews
Anyone who knows me knows that I'm a serial procrastinator and so when I started my A-levels I was in desperate need of something to keep me on track. This app works wonders and it only requires me to concentrate for 25 minutes at a time before I'm allowed a break and this way a whole day's work seems a lot less intimidating. Additionally after working for four 25-minute sessions the app rewards you with a long break - enough time to go for some fresh air, do some exercise, or (let's be honest here) watch an episode of a TV show. This app changed the way I work and allows me to work a full 8-hour day of studying at home without becoming run-down or losing focus.
I found this quite handy. I usually get distracted while revising, and instead of using an app that blocks my social media, I used this instead. This kept me quite motivated and made the time go quicker than usual. I usually revise for an hour and take 10 minutes (this is kind of the same but 30 minutes with 5 minute break) and then take an hours break after 2 hours of work. This app offers 25 minutes after 2 hours which for me, isn't long enough to cook some food. But does give you the option to pause the timer to give you slightly longer. Great app
Easy to accidentally turn the timer off
This app is really useful if you want to use the Pomodoro method for productivity. However, you can pause the timer by tapping anywhere on the screen, not just on the large pause button. This means in can be very easy to accidentally pause the timer when switching between apps using multitasking gestures. It’s incredibly frustrating to switch back to the app after working in a different app and find that the timer has accidentally been paused and you have no idea how long you have been working for. A option to disable the ‘tap anywhere to pause’ feature would be greatly appreciated.
