Hi all, Marie here, one of the Founders of Sloth! Thanks so much for the hunt! We weren't expecting this so early, just launched 2 days ago, but are honored just the same! To give some background, Sloth was born out of a personal problem of mine. Some of the best work I do is under pressure, which naturally led me to doing things at the last minute, which isn't a good thing. Sloth uses the concept of 'timeboxing', which is to allocate a set amount of time to each task therefore creating a deadline (pressure!) which can increase the productivity of the user. In Sloth, when you start a task it starts a countdown timer. The goal is to try and focus 100% of the time while the timer is on and to essentially beat the clock. It works best when the timers are short so a great way to use it is to set multiple timers for a large task by breaking it into smaller chunks. This technique is used a lot in software development, but it can really be applied to any field. Thanks again for the hunt!
