Pomodoro Timer Lite

A simple productivity app inspired by the Pomodoro Technique developed by Francesco Cirillo in the 80s.

The technique uses a timer to break down work into 25 minute periods separated by productivity-boosting short intervals. ‘Pomodoros’ is Italian for ‘tomatoes’; Cirillo used a tomato-shaped timer to develop this technique.

Set a task to accomplish; set a timer for 25 minutes and start working; when the timer rings, take a 3-5 minute break. During each 25 minute ‘pomodoro’ the emphasis is on solid concentration with zero distractions. After four pomodoros you get a longer 15-20 minute break and then it’s back to work until you’ve completed the target number of pomodoros you’ve set for yourself that day.
