TimeBox


UPDATE: TimeBox is now fully compatible with Ice Cream Sandwich!

TimeBox is a configurable time management application that employs the Pomodoro Technique.

The Pomodoro technique was developed by Francesco Cirillo in the late 1980s. The technique breaks your work flow into cycles called Pomodori (Italian for tomato).

Cycles are typically 25 minutes with a 5 minute break afterward. After four of such cycles, an extended break is taken (15-20 minutes).

Here at Psi Solutions, we believe that life is not one-size-fits-all. We have given you the ability to configure every aspect of a Pomodoro to suit your own needs.

These configurations are stored as user presets, which can be freely created, modified or removed. The result is a dynamic time management service which helps you get work done without impeding your work flow.

Key Features:

* Configure all aspects of a Pomdoro (eg. work/break ratio)
* Save configurations as user presets
* Preferences which control audio alerts and wake lock
* Selection of visualizations to represent the progress of a Pomodoro
* Multitask-friendly, TimeBox will continue running an active Pomodoro in the background as an ongoing notification

Recent changes:
1.1.1:
* Minor bug fixes for earlier versions of Android.

1.1.0:
* TimeBox is now fully compatible with Ice Cream Sandwich!

1.0.18:
* Minor bug fixes

I love it. An app has no alternatives.

I had hopes for this one - I was looking for a timer with the ability to define multiple intervals, and this one does just that. Unfortunately, the app ignores device orientation, so it would be awkward to use while the tablet is plugged in.

Good, but crashes when running in the background keeps crashing if i minimize during a break. it starts a new pomodoro when i go back into the app even though it should still be counting down my break Thanks!

Best simple pomodoro timer I was looking for a pomodoro timer that allowed you to pause and resume. I get many people interrupting me at work, after I assisted them I would continue my task but other timer apps forced me to return at 25 minutes. This one allows me to do what I want.

Great app From one developer to another, you do know how to build software. Any chance to add some statistics in the future?
