    Simple Pomodoro timer in your Mac's menu bar

    To be totally honest, I don't think there's a TON of difference between Pomodoro timers (they're all timers all operating off of the same theory) but this one is my favorite of all that I've come across because it lives in my Mac menu bar and is so simple and pretty. Checks all my boxes— efficient, effective, convenient and designed well!
    I love it!

    The simplest Mac app for using the Pomodoro Technique

    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"

    I don't always do Pomodoro, but when I do, I use Vitamin-R. It's pretty flexible, lets you set variable focus times and breaks, and lets you set a goal/focus for each one.

    Your cards from Trello show up in a menu. The time spent on each is stored as text to the card. You can log distractions as well. And you can move cards to Done from within the app.

    I couldn't find a timer that was totally right for me, so I wrote mine for Mac. It is very simple, there are no tasks, but is in my opinion doing its job.

    I like Toggle because not only provides a Pomodoro timer, it also has a time tracker for projects and a nice dashboard where you can see how you use your time. The browser extension is very simple to use and you can configure it to be a Pomodoro timer or a regular customizable tracker.

    Be focused and make things easier.

    For me, it is a super simple and effective way to manage my time and nurture the Pomodoro technique. I like how detailed this app is, totally recommend to try:) I can also recommend you to see a list of Pomodoro apps here - https://productive.fish/blog/pom... This is where I found Focus To-Do, but you can check out others and compare to your needs I guess.
