Do Now - Task timer


Need help focusing and getting things done? This is what you’re looking for.

You can manage a task list like usual but you can also set up a list for the things you want to get done right now giving each task an estimated duration. Then it’s ready, set, go. You’ll see how much time you’ve spent on each task and how much time you have left. You’ll be notified when the duration’s been reached and you can choose to snooze, ignore, or complete - moving on to the next task. Set up your planned list, hit play and go! The snooze and pause buttons will be there for you in case of the unexpected. Your day and time will be free of stress and that much more productive.

Recommended usage is to follow a technique like Pomodoro or 30/30 as well as GTD. Break up your day into chunks of time and assign some amount of time to each task you want to get done. There’s no need to be rigid - you can vary the duration for each task and the app will keep track of the time and tell you when it’s time to move on.

Especially useful for mundane tasks, this will help you stay focused and on task. It will also help to keep you from staying one thing for too long, reminding you to move on and work on some other things for maximum efficiency.

Your day can be as simple as that with your time managed efficiently. With a quick glance at the app, widget, or notification bar you can see what you’re working on and how much time you have left.

Have the same usual routines? Save as many as you’d like and load a routine’s tasks into your planned list when it’s time to get things done.

The app will also remember how much time you actually spent vs the estimated duration you entered. So the next time you start entering a task you’ve done before, autocomplete will show you the average time spent vs the average estimated duration. You’ll become that more precise in predicting how long something will take.

If you have your list ready but it’s not quite time to start just set up a reminder alarm straight from the app so you don’t have to worry about remembering when to start.

Great effort Some ui candy please... I don't like all black, give me options to change. I also like simplified buttons or card UI interface.
