What’s New

Version 1.8.1

A small quality-of-life update for those with Pro who use workspaces and projects. Also, I've started to work on a complete redesign of Balance. If there's something particular you really would like to see, please send me an email and let me know! You can reach me at

- Reduced the number of submenus you have to go through when clocking into a workspace/project or clocking out with a new session

simple, well designed, effortless

I really just wanted a great pomodoro timer, which this is, but the little extras (clocking in/out, reminder notifications, etc) really just make it better at that. it secretly wants to be a full-blown time tracking app and is good at that too, but at its core it just helps you focus and take breaks, and it excels at it.

Thank you so much for the nice review! 😊

Great app with only 1 issue

First, this app works great for holding yourself accountable to the time you spend working. I also like how it can track your work time in the menubar.

It also can track time across separate workspaces, which is handy for those trying to split time on several different projects.

The only downside right now is it doesn't sync via iCloud, so if you work on more than one Mac (like a desktop and Macbook), you'll have to manually add your time together, which isn't as intuitive. If this is added, it'll be a true 5-star app.

Thank you for the review! 🙂 iCloud syncing is planned and should not be too far away. Stay tuned!

The app is spectacularly designed and made. The Pomodoro timer is perfect. The design of the Pomodoro timer is really good. The functionality in the Menu Bar item is spectacular. However, an IOS app would be incredible. I understand the complexity of designing an app however. Nonetheless, Balance is a 6/5 app.

Thank you for the very kind words! ☺️ A mobile app is planned, so stay tuned for that sometime in the future!
