Tomato Timer is a simple app designed to help you get things done.


Tomato Timer helps you complete tasks by chunking the time you spend working into work sessions, which are punctuated by breaks.

Work for some period of time, then take a break.

After a few work sessions, take a longer break.

You can configure how long each work session, short break, and long break are by navigating to Settings.


• Turn on Notifications to get reminded when to begin your next session
• Configure the length of work sessions, short breaks, and long breaks
• Choose whether the session should automatically start
• Keep your device awake while the app is in the foreground
• Set a gorgeous theme color

Tomato Timer is open source software. If you'd like to check out the source code, visit

Best Timer Of Them All

Ive tried many MANY timers and this is the best one, in both simplicity and effectiveness. Everything about it is amazing; no clutterness, no random ads, no subscriptions (although for this app I would be willing to pay for one): everything is straight to the point. Even the animation is unique, I have never seen another app do this. This app timer is MORE than a 5 out of 5. This app is a MUST install.

The only issue I have is that the timer should be able to run in the background, even if someone accidentally swipes up on it and closes it. I notice many other apps have this functionality, and this should be no exception to this app. If you can, please add it so it runs in the background even when closed or “killed”.

Necessary and easy to use

This app does everything you would want without all of the extra stuff you see in other timer apps. It is truly simple AND encourages you while doing your work. This app is also free compared to other Pomodoro Technique apps that require you to pay once downloading the app.

It’s exactly what it needs to be and nothing more. I’m surprised that something like this wouldn’t come with a price tag or ads. If the developer opened a way to donate, I would. I’ve tried a few different pomodoro timers and this is the one.
