I’m getting work done

Not in leaps and bounds, but in small steps. I’d been looking for a time-tracking/pomodoro app, but most apps treat the two as completely separate things. Bluebird marries both quite well. I was also looking for Apple Watch, iPad, and IPhone sync + a one-time purchase option (was only about 10 mins in before I bought the lifetime purchase!). The app currently fits the bill & I’m happy to hear that they will be releasing a Mac app, as well. Overall, Bluebird has helped my work seem more manageable and approachable because I’m aiming for a time goal rather than trying to get the whole thing done at once. I struggle with procrastination and being able to set customizable timer durations toward my overall goal is a huge motivator. Additionally, I really love the focus reminders feature. I get notifications on whichever device I started the timer on, they’re unobtrusive and just help me refocus if I’ve gotten distracted. The due dates on tasks is also especially helpful because I get to track my assignments alongside personal goals & tasks. Anyway, I’m thrilled to have discovered this app and have gotten in as an early adopter. Wishing it and its indie developers so much success & longevity. All the best.

Helps me manage my weekends

My adhd-traits mean that I can fritter away my non-work hours. Bluebird helps me keep take actionable steps on my housecleaning and other personal projects. And I know this because I did HOURS upon HOURS of research - it’s the only time tracking app that lets you set a customized duration for each task that *syncs to your Apple Watch.* Historically, being tethered to my phone is bad news. Either because when I’m running around lugging laundry up stairs, my phone’s not on my person so I have no idea if I went over the task duration or not. The Apple Watch feature sets this app apart from the rest. Bluebird, thanks for letting me know that cleaning my little studio actually takes 6 hours instead of 2 😩 At least I can now be realistic about it.

Fantastic! Bought a lifetime subscription

I was testing out the different focus timer apps and am really happy with Bluebird. It’s philosophy of not having a pause button is great and i’m impressed to see how it’s adopting apple shortcuts and that it’s starting to have widgets available. I like the small widget size, but I’d love for there to be a version that doesn’t default to showing “Today’s focus, 0 minutes’ and instead shows my default-session countdown and a “start” button of some kind. Psychologically, that gets me to start a session much more happily than the negative reinforcement of seeing “0 minutes today”. It’s a minor thing, because the rest of the app is fantastic. The Apple Watch integration is pretty streamlined, and I really like that it seems to have reliable haptic feedback for when a session is complete. The ‘almost finished reminders’ feature is perfect for someone like me also! Some other apps don’t give me a wrist vibration at all, and I end up frequently peeking at my watch to see how much time remaining. Bluebird makes it simple and worry-free! It’s so close to being perfect that I got the lifetime subscription. Great work!
