The Pomodoro App for Mac

The pomodoro app for Mac that I’m using is Tomatoes. I am using the Pomodoro method┬áto stay focused on my most important tasks. It’s how I keep working, even while the cat is peeing in the kitchen table. The pomodoro method is easy to explain; I’m working in 25 minute increments, with only one thing on my mind. I’m taking short breaks between each pomodoro – but it’s not as easy to accomplish.

When I first started using the pomodoro method, I just used a regular timer. It was working rather well, but I was missing something. I like to have an overview and a plan for what I’m working on.

Now, after testing many different apps and tools, I’ve ended up using a pomodoro app for Mac. The name of the app is Tomatoes.

Let me explain why I am using it, and how I am using it.

The design is beautiful. It looks amazing. It’s easy to set up all the different pomodoros, and it’s drag and drop to activate them.

Full control with the Pomodoro App for Mac

I have full control over each day and how I’ll be working. Every completed pomodoro is archived. This way, at the end of the week, I can evaluate the week and how productive I’ve been. I’m also tracking all interruptions, to see what I can do to have more focus when I’m working.

pomodoro statistics

I enjoy looking at statistics, and with the Tomatoes pomodoro app for Mac, I have detailed statistics for every single day. Like I said, I evaluate every week and look at what I’ve been doing and I’m trying to find even better ways to be more productive (and have more fun working).
