  • Buy the pro

    By PressedK
    The $1.99 is well worth it. You can see trends and get customization over sounds. The ticking is awful and I turned it off, wish it was off by default. If you want a Pomodoro method to double as a task manager or heavily featured, this isn't it. If you want simplicity, with some basic stats on what you've accomplished, your search is over. I would pay again for an updated version.
  • Easy to use, very effective

    By SuspenseWriter
    This isn't a complicated app. Its basically just a timer that keeps restarting in pomodoro increments. My days get out of hand very fast. This app helps me to focus and reminds me when it's time to take breaks. If you have a time management problem, and what busy person doesn't, you should try this one out.
  • Perfect

    By Cmhbrin
    I love love love this app. It noticeably jump-starts my productivity each day, as well as protects me from burn-out. It is simple, clean, and customizable. Thank you to the app creators and designers!
  • Very helpful tool for staying focused

    By KimbaDC
    I like the simplicity of Focus Keeper, which doesn’t nag me with reminders but helps me stay on track by blocking our reasonable amounts of work time. You can get a lot done in 25-minute intervals.
  • Simply Fantastic

    By Tsarina9
    This is the first app I have ever rated, and the app I have stuck with longer than anything. I've used it for 3 months now and it's just amazing. So simple. The method is fantastic: work for 25 minutes without a break or distraction, then you are rewarded with a 5 minute break. This is so effective for the human brain because we inherently respond to structure and reward. It is very hard to be productive without structure and reward anticipation. This app allows me to be more productive than I have ever been in my life - and consistently, too! I was able to get through extremely long and boring textbooks in the span of a week. Thank you so much for this app. Amazing. I will use it forever.
  • This will raise your productivity!

    By Bobdeei
    This is the way to raise your productivity. I can’t tell you all in this single review but do things for around 25’, take a short rest of 5’ is the way to do things.
  • Great

    By EddzGamez
    This app does exactly what it's supposed to: provide a frustration-free timer to help you get your work done. I just wish there was an option for disabling the gesture where you click with two fingers to toggle the timer though, because when I use multitasking gestures I accidentally stop it.
  • Paid app doesn’t work, support doesn’t respond

    Paid app doesn’t work, support doesn’t respond.
  • Keeping me focused!

    By je-brook
    Simple and effective, keeps me on track and allows time for structured distractions! Highly recommend!
  • The most usable Pomodoro app

    By IceHoot
    There are “prettier” Pomodoro apps out there that have iPhone X support, but I keep going back to this one because it’s actually *usable* and puts function over form.
