Best pomodoro app for Apple Watch
The developer added a watch complication to the app. This is now the best pomodoro app for Apple Watch users.
I’ve tried the free apps, the paid apps, the ones that charge subscriptions, and all were lacking in one way or another. This app works without issue and the UI was designed with taste and simplicity in mind.
The watch complication looks like it was designed by Apple. It works perfectly.
Simple, which is perfect
The iPhone app is great, but I live this mainly because it works simply and totally independently on Apple Watch. The complication is perfect, and I can put my phone away and not get distracted by it.
In general, I think getting a good habit is most likely to succeed when it is easy to implement and this app is simple, yet complete enough to align with that philosophy.
So close, but not there yet
Does not sync time/intervals between phone app and watch app or watch app and watch complication. Could also use an option for whether or not you want your next work cycle/break to auto-start or not. Current default is to auto-start, which is not great if you are right in the middle of finishing something before you take a break. You can pause the cycles in theory, but it rarely works in practice (at least on the watch)
Developer Response ,
Not syncing the timer state between Watch and phone is a design choice. Sync is incredibly hard to do reliably and I would rather not have a feature than have one that sometimes didn't work. Any delay or failure in sync would leave an inconsistent state with notifications happening on both devices at different times.
The issue with the Watch complication is new in watchOS 6 - it worked fine in 4 and 5. I am investigating. If you use the Watch app to control the timer (rather than a notification action or Siri shortcut) then the complication is updated correctly.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
