Modern and clean interface
The installation process does not take longer than a few moments and does not bring any kind of surprises, while the interface you are greeted by presents a modern and minimal design. The main window only consists of a few buttons and enables you to start the countdown timer and view the remaining time. All types of users, including those with little experience, can learn how to handle it, without experiencing issues.
Set up time sessions and adjust other settings
The Pomodoro Technique is a time management method based on the idea that frequent breaks can improve mental agility. This software utility uses the traditional 25 minutes to work and the 5 minute breaks, yet you should know that you can easily change the length of both these sessions.
Aside from that, it is possible to enable or disable a ticking sound during work or break, as well as play alarms when the time is up. All sessions can be set up to automatically restart, the window can be placed in front of all other launched programs and a color-coded system is in place, thus ensuring that you can easily tell how much time there is left.
To wrap it up, Focus Booster proves to be a pretty useful piece of software for people interested in using the Pomodoro Technique to increase their productivity. The interface is suitable to all users, the response time is good and it does not put a strain on the machine’s performance.
