    Pros: 

    Super-simple interface and the notification alarms that your time is running out

    Cons: 

    Cannot configure it with custom goals...yet?

    Really enjoy the implementation of this simple app. Would be useful to consider any of the following in a Pro plan:

    1 - Pomodoro

    2 - Integration with Asana/Todoist/Trello/etc

    3 - Statistics

    Pros: 

    Minimalist way to add your task and keeping yourself on the way.

    Cons: 

    There's a small issue on show long task name, but it's minor for now.

    I had the honor to be one of the first tester of Efforless, and I think that it's a great product that helping me to track my working time. So, It's great to see it on Product Hunt.

Hi Everyone, I'm very easily distracted a habitual phone checker and struggle with my ability to focus. So my co-founder and I decided to make a simple app that shows me all the time in the menu bar the task I'm working on and a timer. I feel that by seeing the task all the time its harder for me to get sidetracked, and the timer creates an artificial constraint that allows me to stay focused. I hope you find it useful, I really would love to know your opinion

Looks really nice and useful! Good job 👍 just one thing, I see a white strip on the right of my task list, UI bug? Also, I'd be really useful if you add integrations (Trello, Slack, etc...) and sell as pro feature (freemium model) 😄 Another thing, how did you build it? Electron? Swift? Thanks! 🙂

This is awesome! I'm manually doing this now with Things 3 + Brain.fm (for timer). Suggestion – how about displaying the total time for the tasks added (& time left)?

@jijosunny Thank You Jiro, I would love to understand this, so like email 20 - 19:59 something like that?

@aracena Nope, I think you're doing that perfectly with the timer. I meant the total time to complete all tasks (overall timer). If I add 4 tasks of 15 mins each, and complete 1 task, it should say 45 minutes left. Just to give a sense of time. BTW loved the 'add 5 minutes' feature 😻

@jijosunny Got it!!! Love that idea. I'm glad you liked the add 5 minutes, we try so many version of this, and we finally ended up with this version, It's awesome that you notice it and like it :D
