    "Focus, work, and break"


    Developer Tomas Hubalek has a smart way to help you become more productive and keep you focused at the same time: work for a certain amount of time, take a short break, work again, then take a longer break. You’ll have access to all three options. To get started, simply tap on the one you want to do and press the play button. When the timer’s over, simply move on to the next task. You’ll also see a chart based on time logs. This timer app provides preset focus and break times, but under settings, you can always change them.


    Based on the Pomodoro technique, don’t expect to have a difficult time figuring out how to use this app, as the user interface is as clean and as intuitive as they come, allowing you to just tap a few buttons and focus or take a quick break.


    To get started, you’ll have to sign in with your Google account. While the app’s core functionality is great, Focus Timer Reborn definitely needs more customization options, such as a way to log what kind of work you’re doing. Plus, you can’t save timer information locally, which is a huge bummer.

    There are multiple apps like this (pomodoro method), but after trying as many as I could find, this is the one I'm settling on. Key features for me were: stats and graphs of my work, short and long breaks, ability to customize times. Features I didn't know I wanted: a coordinating web app, a "goal" screen for the week, tags for type of work (color coded!), ability to log an extra work session. The one thing it doesn't have is lock screen functionality: to start a new block, I have to unlock my phone. Other ones I used could be controlled from their notification on the lock screen. But the ability to use the web app mitigates the annoyance. I don't need to use my phone, I use the web app instead (but my stats are still all on my phone). My one complaint with how it actually works is that I have to tap an orange button twice to start my next block. (Maybe it could change color?) And I often miss the second tap and then find out later it never started. But at least I can log a session manually!
