Pomodoro Pro - App Review



Anything that helps achieve tasks in a timely manner is worth taking a look at (have you set aside time for 'improvement?).

If you're not familiar with the Pomodoro Technique then take a look at the link; it's another methodology for getting things done, based around 25 minute steps (this is the default but easily changed).

Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
You are welcomed by a screen that gives you clues of how to best use the App. Gestures including swiping left to delete a task, or left to delete the current task, swiping up to mark a task as completed and tapping to start the 25 minute timer.

Once you are into the meat of the App, you enter a task name and start the timer.

The settings allow you to set a sound for the timer (having a ticking sound in the background is an acquired taste... although Charles Dickens possibly had to put up with it).

In order to synchronise across devices, you will need to register for an account.

Cost
The App costs $2.

Indispensability
Getting things dome is not an option but a necessity. Pomodoro seems to add a sense of urgency which may be what you need.

Dependability
There are no surprises with this App, just as it should be.

Security
Apart from the optional account registration, this is a standalone App.

ACIDS Test Rating:

Get things done with Pomodoro rather than delaying them until pomeriggio (little Italian joke).
