A simple menubar Pomodoro app

The other tools to block websites and hide distractions are great, but here's an additional option - an amazingly simple menu bar to-do list where you set a time for each task. It keeps you in the zone since it always displays the time remaining for the task, and keyboard shortcuts make it easy to update without getting distracted.

I've used this for years. Is dead simple. Has a super simple UX. One nice bonus feature is that it will add each of your pomo's to your calendar. So if you want to track how many you did in a day, you can look back in see. I generally just turn it on when I'm having trouble getting into "the zone"
