Pomodoro.me – Productivity Web App Using a Tomato

Last year I introduced ChromoDoro, a Chorme extension that enhances your productivity using the pomodoro technique.  This system suggests that human’s productivity drop after a certain period of time.  By breaking down a big task into smaller ones, complete them one by one with short breaks in between, we maintain high productivity.

Today I am going to introduce a web app that does the time tracing for you.  It is not a browser-specific extension / add-on, as long as you use a modern browser you can fire it up.  If you use Google Chrome, there is a Chrome web app which is basically equal to a bookmark.


Pomodoro.me – Web App Employing Pomodoro Technique

This web app cannot be simpler.  There is a logo on top, a timer and four buttons beneath.  Simply click the Pomodoro button, the timer starts to count down 25 minutes, the time span suggested by the Pomodoro system.  Try to complete one task in 25 minutes without getting distracted by other stuff.  When the time comes, this web app tells you that this session ends, you can start a short break of 5 minutes before starting another 25-minute session.  After a few sessions, you can take a long break of 15 minutes instead of 5 minutes.

I am a user of Pomodoro techniques, I have android app as well as Chrome extension serving this function.  This web app gives yet another choice to manage my time, so I highly recommend it to all people who look for effective methods to increase productivity.

Work Monday: ChromoDoro – Enhance Your Productivity with a Tomato

The Pomodoro Technique Logo

Today’s featured Chrome extension is ChromoDoro, a time management tool.  Before I introduce it, I should explain Pomodoro Technique.  It is a time management technique created by Francesco Cirillo in the late 1980s.

The principle is not difficult to understand.  An ordinary human could only focus for about 25 mins continuously.  Following this technique, we divide complex tasks into small sub-tasks, fit a sub-task into a 25 mins slot.  Whenever the 25 mins ends, no matter the sub-task has been completed or not, we stop working and have a 5 mins short break.  Then the whole process continues until a longer break that occurs after 4 cycles.

This extension helps you to implement this Pomodoro Technique.
