Recapture the Lost Art of Joyful Concentration. Overcome Procrastination. Get Motivated.
Vitamin-R creates optimal conditions for your brain by structuring your work into short bursts of distraction-free, highly-focused activity alternating with opportunities for renewal, reflection and intuition.
The built-in task logging and analysis features create positive momentum towards productivity by providing you with visible feedback on your progress and achievements.
▷ Slices Up Daunting Tasks into Manageable Chunks
Vitamin-R breaks down large, vaguely defined tasks into a series of short "time slices" of between 10 and 30 minutes, each with a specific, easily reachable and actionable objective.
▷ Keeps You Focused
Vitamin-R features an array of highly configurable visual, audio and speech notifications that prod you back to your task as soon as your attention starts to wander.
▷ Gets You Started, Keeps You Motivated
Vitamin-R allows you to break through the resistance of procrastination and create a positive feedback loop of small achievements that get you closer to your ultimate aims.
▷ Effective Task Switching
Task switching is a big, but often unavoidable productivity killer. Vitamin-R makes it as efficient as possible and the built-in "breadcrumbing" technique helps you pick up where you left off.
▷ Productive Breaks
Regular breaks are not for slackers. In fact, they are especially important for people who work with high focus. Vitamin-R's timed breaks make sure that your renewal break does not turn into a free afternoon and the "priming" technique allows your intuition to work overtime before you even start on an objective.
▷ Find Your Rhythm
Each one of us is different. Find out what works best for you and unlock the key to true productivity. Vitamin-R provides the tools to gain improved awareness of your preferred work methods and rhythms. Armed with this new knowledge, you can eliminate unproductive work patterns.
▷ Get It Out of Your Head Quickly
Did you know that your short term memory can only hold 4-6 "chunks" of information? The slightest interruption and it's all gone and you have to start from scratch. That's why Vitamin-R provides you with the "Now & Later Board", complete with FastType magic, to give you a place to quickly dump all those things that go through your head and allow you to quickly return to your task.
▷ Make It Your Own
Vitamin-R plugs into your life rather than trying to take it over. You can use it occasionally to overcome procrastination or mental blocks or re-organize your entire working life around the concepts that it embodies.
▷ Works with OmniFocus, Things & The Hit List
Vitamin-R integrates with traditional to-do list managers rather than trying to replace them.
▷ Block Out Noise
The built-in noise machine can block out irritating coworkers and create energizing soundscapes.
▷ Eliminate Distractions
Vitamin-R helps you reduce distractions by automatically eliminating desktop clutter and hiding unrelated applications.
▷ Syncs with all your Mac OS X and iOS Devices
Vitamin-R for Mac seamlessly syncs with the iPhone version and multiple Macs via its simple Dropbox integration, so you can log your time slices wherever you are.
▷ Ideal for Pomodoro Technique Aficionados
Vitamin-R provides everything you need to implement the Pomodoro Technique: sophisticated timer, log book and analysis component.
▷ Attention Deficit Disorder
While Vitamin-R was never specifically designed with ADHD "sufferers" in mind, many ADHD-ers have found its approach to focusing attention invaluable.

Ratings and Reviews
No customer support reaction to any e-mails
Heb 3x gemaild met een vraag over een probleem met Vitamin-R2 maar developer "publicspace.net" antwoordt niet - ondanks dat ik 'x14' in onderwerp had gezet - hij dekt zich op z'n site al in door te zeggen dat je dat erin moet zetten om antwoord te krijgen, maar zelfs als je dat doet krijg je dus geen antwoord. Nee, ook niet in mijn Spam Folder, waar hij op zijn site doodleuk beweert dat zijn antwoord is als je geen antwoord van hem krijgt.
Aangezien het probleem niet opgelost is ondanks al mijn mailtjes aan developer, heb ik het programma verwijderd.
Schandelijk, voor zo'n prijs voor een betaalde app mag je echt een minimaal niveau van customer support verwachten!
App developer does not reply to any e-mails, even when I put 'x14' in subject line as he says to do on his site. Reply is NOT in my Spam Folder as he says on his site - he just does not reply.
For a paid app, especially at this price, I expect decent customer support but developer fails. Avoid this app.
