- 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'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 really like the UI, it is super simple, without much hassle.
- timqian made this productI build this tool recently. It is a chrome extension contains a todo list and a Pomodoro timer. It displays tomatoes you have done around a clock which gives you an intuitive view of how is things going. The UI is simple and intuitive. Check it out ;)
There are so few good solutions for juggling tasks in multiple trackers, because it's surprisingly difficult to get right. Many of us dream of having a single task aggregator to manage our stuff, but we also tend to be very picky about the features and how they're presented.
In my limited experience so far, the PomoDone team seem like the right people to do it. Not only are they brave enough to take on a project with so many hidden complexities, but they're also giving it loads of attention in many different areas. I have several little niggles about details in PomoDone but, given what I've seen, this is a team that knows how to prioritise. No wonder they're showing the rest of us how to Get Stuff Done. Kudos!
PomoDone is definitely the best Pomodoro technique app around there. I've been using it since the first versions, a couple of years ago, and had tried several other options before.
Two points I can highlight are:
1. The ability to sync the tasks with dozens of to-do list apps (I use Todois), project managing apps (I like Trello) and any kind of tool that allows you to create lists. If you don't use any, you may simple add tasks directly into the app.
2. The availability in all major platforms you can imagine. So doesn't matter if I'm on Windows or Linux PC or even can't install the app (using the web version or phone), I can just open the app and start tracking and managing my working hours.
3. When a timer is finished, be it a working timer or break timer, it has the option to change the focus of the window to the app, reminding me that I need to stop or should get back to work.
Besides that, it is so customizable (timers, sounds, shortcuts, etc.) that can fit to nearly any use-case, all up to the user! Finally, it keeps track of all your working time and breaks (which you can add notes to), so you may review them later and check out how you may improve on using your time.
PomoDone really helps me getting things done, keeps me focused and helps me improving the way I use my time. I'm relly grateful for all the team and the creator, as there is simply no other app with the all the mentioned functionalties!! Thank you!
- 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.
