Pomodoro Timer

The Pomodoro Technique® is a popular time management method developed in the late 80’s. It’s really simple. You break down your work into 25 minute intervals separated by short breaks. These intervals are named pomodoros, the plural in English of the Italian word pomodoro (tomato), after the tomato-shaped kitchen timer that Cirillo (the originator of this technique) used as a university student. The technique has been scientifically proven to improve your productivity and aid assimilation.  

And this app helps you do just that.  Just pick a task you need to accomplish and set a timer for 25 minutes and start working.  When the timer rings, take a 3-5 minute break. And, every fourth break should be long (15-25 minutes).

The lite version is free and helps you with one task at a time while the Pro (paid) version helps you with multiple tasks, history and many more features.
