Timmy is the first and only Pomodoro timer social network. Launched in mid-April of 2020, the TimmyTimer.com website is already motivating hundred of students, software devs, artists, and knowledge workers around the world to stay focused and get stuff done.
Since all timer notes are public, you can see a fascinating activity feed of every member's current timer notes. You can Like other timers, Follow other members, climb up the leaderboard, and send and receive private messages of support. The social accountability that results from making your goals and results public is a magically strong motivator.
This iOS app is an extension of our website at TimmyTimer.com, and offers the same features and functionality found there. By using the iOS app, you'll get push notifications on your phone (and Apple Watch) when your timer or break is over.
The app features both a Dark and Light theme, and will automatically choose the theme that matches your device settings. You can also set the app to use either the Dark or Light theme all the time.

A Productivity App That You’ll Actually Want to Stick With
I’ve tried tons of productivity apps and haven’t stuck with them, but Timmy is actually different and super.
The idea is very simple, You set a plan for what you intend to get done and a timer for how long you expect it to take. Once the times up Timmy gives you a prompt to make a note of what you accomplished. A break timer starts up to give you a chance to get up stretch or whatever need be and then you can start a new timer and keep on knocking stuff out!
What makes this app perfect is that it doesn’t encourage any time wasting. Just a simple note for the plan and the result so you stay on track and stay accountable.
On top of that there’s extra accountability since your plan and result is posted into a public feed for your friends or other users to see. It’s just social enough to enhance your productivity without being a time vacuum and I always feel motivated to accomplish more.
Over the last few weeks using this app I’ve gotten more done on average and thanks to the apps logs I can actually compare my productivity week to week as well.

Great Way to Stay Accountable
I’ve been using the Timmy Timer website for a couple days now, and now that the iOS version has been released, I knew I had to try it out.
First of all, Timmy is a great way to hold yourself accountable while trying to get work done. I always had trouble staying focused while working on my own projects, but this app helps solve that problem for me. Once I hit that “Start Timer” button, I know that I need to stay focused on my work otherwise I will have to tell the other users that wasn’t able to stay focused (hence the “accountability” aspect of this app). If you have found yourself with a similar problem, I would highly suggest you try this app.
As a competitive person, the leaderboards are also an awesome feature as I am always trying to find more work to do so I can add more hours to my total and climb up the leaderboard.
The app itself is very similar to the website which is great because it has the same layout as the website with the functionality of a modern app.

Thanks Nathan, appreciate your review!
Timmy has made me 10x more productive
Not exaggerating! I’ve been using Timmy’s web version for a month, and it’s amazing how the simple combination of (1) stating my plan for the next 45 mins, and (2) feeling accountable to everyone else on Timmy helps me get things done. This app is the perfect companion for when I decide to step away from my laptop to read or do my work on paper. Definitely give it a try if you’re looking for a fast, easy way to boost your productivity.
