Pomodoro Timer instead of Next timer

I think the Pomodoro timer helps me focus because of the nature of it counting down. I try to complete a task before the timer ends so I focus more and don’t dilly-dally. Otherwise a task that should take 20 minutes takes an hour because I don’t think about timers that go up.

So an idea would be to use the current stopwatch feature of the Next Page and swap the stopwatch with a countdown timer. When the timer ends you can get a pop up that asks “were you focused?” If you say yes it appends a tomato emoji to the notes (optional) and then you can take a break or do another round.


Thanks for the feedback. I'll keep it on the list to consider. Thanks!

Agreed on this feedback. I'm a new user but so far loving everything about GT. An integrated Pomodoro timer would take it to the next level!

I've been trying to find a Pomodoro app on the app store that works with Apple Reminders which I think would do this job really well. But can't find one that pulls in tasks from Reminders.

Just saw this post from google.
Found a shortcut from Reddit. Not sure if it’s good enough.

Looks promising. I'll check it out. Thanks!

Agree. I use a separate app for pomodoro focus, however would be better to have it integrated.
