Pomodairo is a software application, developed with Adobe AIR in order to aid individuals in increasing their productivity, by following the Pomodoro technique, creating a task list and inputting interruptions.
Surprise-free setup and simple-to-handle GUI
The installation process you are required to go through is seamless and swift, while the interface you come across is modern and minimal. It encompasses a few buttons, a pane which enables you to view the time left and another one to display all input tasks. Moreover, there are two sizes between which you can toggle the main window.
Although no Help contents are supported, both beginners and highly experienced people can learn how to find their way around it, without facing any kind of difficulties.
The Pomodoro technique is a time management method based on the idea that frequent breaks can improve mental agility. It uses several 25 minute work intervals, separated by short breaks. This app uses exact these configurations, yet it also enables you to input interruptions and unplanned events, along with a description and time estimate.
Establish details and configure settings to suit your needs
It is possible to configure a pretty long list of options, such enabling sound, fade ticking, input a custom MP3 alert and clock sound, and adjust the volume level. Moreover, you can establish Pomodoro, short break and long break length with the help of some slider bars, as well as set the frame to always stay on top of any other opened window and remember position.
Last but not least, statistics can be generated and displayed in a new tabbed window, while you can also copy them to the Clipboard, so as to use them in another utility.
Conclusion and performance
The amount of resources required is minimal at all times, which means that the computer’s performance is not going to be hampered and you can run it alongside other apps without encountering issues. The response time is good, the interface is suitable to all user categories and a pretty impressive number of options are available.
