5217 - time management for increased productivity
by: Francisco Franco • 1.1K
According to findings from The Muse, frequent breaks throughout the day can improve productivity. Specifically, a piece published in the summer of 2014 found that the most productive cycle is comprised of 52 minutes of work followed by a 17 minute break (not pomodoro).
5217, as you might have guessed, is a tool to record that cycle. This experience exists to help you stop obsessing about "time" and enjoy being super productive - 5217 will do the rest for you!
Using beautiful but subtle transitions, encouraging messages, and playful alarm tones, 5217 gently guides you through your work, allowing you to share how many cycles you were able to complete in a day when you're done.
Features options to automatically apply "Do not disturb" modes, or a simply daily alarm to remember you start your 52 minute work cycle to keep you sharp and ready for a new day! There's also several customization options to tailor the experience to your preferences and environment.
With native Android Wear 2.0 support you can Start, Stop and interact with its notification to glance the time left on your cycle directly from your watch. It's beautiful and convenient!
It seemlessly integrates with Google's Play Games giving you goals to achieve. It's an extra motivation to stay productive. Completing some of those achievements will give you medals to make your friends jealous of how productive you are.
Other meaningful features:
· Custom timers! If your schedule doesn't fit the 52-17 you can purchase a simple in-app purchase to use your own timer;
· Launcher shortcuts to start & stop cycles (Android 7.1+);
· Quick tile to start & stop cycles (Android 7.0+);
· Daydream screensaver to display cycle minute timer & playful message during the break period and it has protection against burn-in on OLED displays. It moves the timer view a couple pixels off-axis every minute!
It's unique, it's experimental, it's beautiful and fun too.
