XwaveSoft's Pomodoro Time 1.0 for Mac OS X is a handy tool that provides a mix of timeboxing, timed rest stops, task management, a goal completion list, and customized productivity analysis.
You can view and compare weekly or monthly progress of total time spent on tasks to accurately adjust actions to be more efficient. The app syncs between Macs, iPhones, and iPads. It also sports tools such as alarm notifications, customized break options, and an overview of exercises per week. The goal is to help users stay focused, while enhancing productivity.
The Pomodoro Technique is based on the idea that individuals are more likely to produce results and complete activities with a break down of work into intervals of 25 minutes, separated by short breaks. Pomodoro Time allows users to customize task duration outside of the standard timeframe to fit individual needs, from five minutes to 60 minutes with customized breaks in between.
Pomodoro Time is designed for anyone looking to chart and optimize time for executing tasks. The app allows users to view the amount of completed tasks versus projected tasks and the average duration it takes to complete assignments on a weekly basis. Users can compare success rates week to week with a graph that offers users a visual perspective of progress.
It's suitable for personal errands, business projects, student assignments, educators, house chores, health and fitness routines, or just about any responsibility that requires an assistant to help complete to-do lists.
Professionals can use Pomodoro Time to allot timeframes for answering morning emails or toggling between projects for multi-tasking success. The app launches at startup and continually runs in the background.
Pomodoro Time requires Mac OS X 10.8 or higher and costs US$4.99. It's available worldwide through the Mac App Store in the Productivity category.
