Do you ever feel like you're wasting too much time and not working as efficiently as you should? Take control of your focus and productivity while working, studying, practicing, and more with Pomodoro Focus.
Pomodoro Focus is an app that uses a unique technique to instantly increase your focus on tasks, track your productive time, and even track how much you’re interrupted while working on tasks. You'll quickly learn how productive (or unproductive) you are and see areas where you can improve.
Pomodoro Focus helps you work on tasks by using focused chunks of time called “sprints”. Rather than trying to accomplish a task by working on it hour after hour (a technique that often leads to multiple distractions), this proven technique helps keep you productive by focusing on a task for 25 minutes at a time (the time can be adjusted if you’d like). After the 25 minute sprint you take a 5 minute break and then do it again. By combining a timer with planned breaks you’ll find that you’re able to focus more and get more done in a shorter time frame.
You'll truly be impressed with how much you can get done using this technique and wonder how you worked without it. It's that effective! The application supports adding custom tasks, recording productive time and interruption time, tracking the number of pomodoro sprints completed, plus more. If you struggle to stay focused and know that you should be more productive then give Pomodoro Focus a try.
Changed task titles to allow 60 characters based upon user requests and have a description.
Based on multiple requests from users, Pomodoro Focus now supports background timer and notification functionality as well as new charting features! When you leave Pomodoro Focus to start another application the timer will continue to track your productive time (or interruption time). Notifications can be turned on or off in the Settings screen and will be shown at 5 minute, 1 minute, and 30 second intervals by default if Pomodoro Focus is running in the background. A final notification will be shown once the current sprint you're working on is completed. As tasks are completed you can chart your progress by viewing the new chart screen.
If you'd prefer to always see the timer and task you're working on, "snap" the Pomodoro Focus application to the left or right of your screen (we show an example of this in the screenshots). Visit http://ow.ly/fuAWh for details on snapping an application.
