New to Windows 8? Right-click or swipe up if you're on a touch screen to access the application menu and add multiple tasks. Do you ever feel like you're wasting too much time and not working as efficiently as you should? Take control of your focus and productivity while working, studying, practicing, and more with Pomodoro Focus. Pomodoro Focus is an app that uses a unique technique to instantly increase your focus on tasks, track your productive time, and even track how much you’re interrupted while working on tasks. You'll quickly learn how productive (or unproductive) you are and see areas where you can improve. Pomodoro Focus helps you work on tasks by using focused chunks of time called “sprints”. Rather than trying to accomplish a task by working on it hour after hour (a technique that often leads to multiple distractions), this proven technique helps keep you productive by focusing on a task for 25 minutes at a time (the time can be adjusted if you’d like). After the 25 minute sprint you take a 5 minute break and then do it again. By combining a timer with planned breaks you’ll find that you’re able to focus more and get more done in a shorter time frame. You'll truly be impressed with how much you can get done using this technique and wonder how you worked without it. It's that effective! The application supports adding custom tasks, recording productive time and interruption time, tracking the number of pomodoro sprints completed, plus more. If you struggle to stay focused and know that you should be more productive then give Pomodoro Focus a try. Pomodoro Focus – Maximize your Productivity!More

How do you use the break feature? Otherwise a great appMore
Nice Pomodoro app
This is the 3rd or 4th app Pomodoro app I've tried and it's the one I like the best so far. My favorite feature is the ability to add tasks and then set focus on a task easily. The alerts are also great (5 minutes left, 1 minutes left, 30 seconds left. Timer is paused alerts). Good snapped mode display. I would have given it a 5 except for: - I can't get the breaks to work consistently. - It doesn't track internal v external interruptions (small complaint).More
Most useful pomodoro app to date
I like the simplicity of this app and how easy it is to keep track of interruptions. It does work well even while in the background. It would be nice to have different categories of tasks, be able to organize them by priority by moving them up and down, and to be able to sync this app across all your devices. Thank you developer for a great effort. I hope to see some additional functionality in the future. 2/13/13 Summary does not come up when app is running in background. Please fix.More
Best App In The Store So Far By Far
This app started helping me to make money in the first 25 minutes I used it. Great interface, SIMPLE yet POWERFUL this app is why I love Windows 8. This kind of App is what will separate Windows 8 from all other Operating Systems. Thank you thank you thank you to the developer who wrote this app!!!!! ....well gotta go my time is up for this task LOL!More
Excellent Pomodoro App
I'm using this app while studying to stay on track and really like it. Super simple to use and it tracks my time and even times when I'm interrupted. The charting screen is great for seeing how I've done over time and the timer runs in the background so I can keep other apps open in full screen. There have also been several updates to it. Highly recommended!More
good, but could there be a way to separate things into activity inventory and to-do today please??More
Only one task at a time?
I suppose the trial version is stripped down, but if I can't enter several tasks and test it more or less the way I would be using it, I won't buy it.More
Really good app. I'm not going to buy it because I really would like a beep or something, instead of the voice saying 10 or 5 minutes.More

Changed task titles to allow 60 characters based upon user requests and have a description. Based on multiple requests from users, Pomodoro Focus now supports background timer and notification functionality as well as new charting features! When you leave Pomodoro Focus to start another application the timer will continue to track your productive time (or interruption time). Notifications can be turned on or off in the Settings screen and will be shown at 5 minute, 1 minute, and 30 second intervals by default if Pomodoro Focus is running in the background. A final notification will be shown once the current sprint you're working on is completed. As tasks are completed you can chart your progress by viewing the new chart screen. If you'd prefer to always see the timer and task you're working on, "snap" the Pomodoro Focus application to the left or right of your screen (we show an example of this in the screenshots).
